The remote village of Lung Kwu Tan lies in an isolated corner of Hong Kong. A favourite of nature lovers, the surrounding countryside is home to a large variety of butterflies and for a time, the endangered pink dolphin was regularly seen off its coastline.
But the sparsely populated area is fast being transformed, with the arrival of two power plants, a steel smelting facility and a massive garbage dump.
Villagers in Lung Kwu Tan are up in arms. They say their interests are being sacrificed for the sake of the greater good. But they’re just a tiny community and their voices aren’t likely to be heard.
