PLA Military Summer Camp For Apathetic Hong Kong Kids....

I got up early today, as I fancied a bit of Communist flavour.

These Hong Kong secondary school students are at a passing-out ceremony today for a Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) military summer camp for the city's youth.

The military summer camp was started up five years ago to instill a greater sense of Chinese national identity in Hong Kong secondary school students who notoriously feel little or no love for the motherland.

Call it indoctrination or brainwashing, whatever you like, but I didn't see a single Hello Kitty doll or GameBoy the whole time I was there.

This city is changing. And fast.
