China’s Army Turns on Charm With Weekend Shows

"I don’t see how little attempts to show so-called friendliness are going to do very much," said Kevin Yam, a convener of the Progressive Lawyers Group. "The ground had shifted so much over the past five years under CY Leung that it is going to be very difficult to regain any trust,” he said, referring to Leung Chun-ying, who was replaced as Hong Kong’s chief executive on July 1 by Carrie Lam.
