Who is supporting Chinese tech shares in Hong Kong?

No June Fourth vigil marks another departure from 'two systems'

HONG KONG -- June Fourth could be the best chance to see whether "one country, two systems" is actually working in Hong Kong.

On this day in 1989, the Chinese military violently suppressed unarmed students and civilians in Tiananmen Square, in central Beijing. The tragic event has been a taboo subject in mainland China, but Hong Kong citizens have been able to commemorate the victims every year, even after the territory's sovereignty was handed over to China from the U.K. in 1997.
