Hong Kong Bakery's Mooncakes Carry Protest Movement Slogans

Hong Kong Bakery's Mooncakes Carry Protest Movement Slogans

Monday, 19 August 2019 04:38 AM

HONG KONG (AP) — A Hong Kong bakery is doing its part to support the city's pro-democracy protest movement by making mooncakes with a message.

At Wah Yee Tang, the traditional Chinese harvest festival treat comes with a twist: slogans opposing the city's Beijing-backed government and promoting Hong Kong's unique identity that have become popular rallying cries during the protests.

Bakery owner Naomi Suen hopes the cakes will bring about positivity during a time of political unrest.

Suen's mooncakes carry messages including "No withdrawal, no dispersal" and "Hong Kong people."

Other versions say "Be water," referring to the protesters' philosophy, inspired by martial arts star Bruce Lee, of taking a fluid approach to their demonstrations.
