BPA supports police’s efforts to clear roads in Mongkok

Normalcy was restored in Mongkok, as the police today (November 26) completed the removal of barricades and tents along Nathan Road and unblocked all previously occupied roads in the surrounding areas. The Business and Professional Alliance for Hong Kong (BPA) welcomes the resumption of traffic in Mongkok as the police went about enforcing the law in a fair and impartial manner. It is hoped that attention would next be given to clearing the barricades in Admiralty and Causeway Bay as soon as possible.

As the illegal occupied movement enters its 60th day, Mr Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen, BPA Chairman, expressed grave concerns that the rule of law was being undermined by such long term illegal activities. He urged protesters to comply with the court order to withdraw from the occupied areas and to immediately cease their illegal occupation.

The catering, retail, tourism and logistics industries have been hardest hit by the Occupy Movement. It is feared that if the Movement were to continue through to Christmas and the New Year, smaller businesses would lose out on what are the two busiest shopping seasons of the year. The BPA calls on the Government to restore social order by helping affected businesses and individuals weather the bleak situation and in reconciling ideological differences.
