Macau's May Day 'riot'

On May Day, a peaceful demonstration in Macau resulted in a 'riot'. Only this was a police riot, just like the one by LAPD goons at the May Day march in downtown Los Angeles.

By way of follow up, in the South China Morning Post, Jake van der Kamp devoted his business column to May Day in Macau. If I remember right, Jake called Macau a fascist economy. Nice one, Jake.

Closer to home, when is someone (beside me) going to point out that Hong Kong's very own Functional Constituencies were almost certainly modelled on Mussolini's 1930s fascist corporativism?

Anyway, SCMP continues behind a pay-wall. But stuff occasionally leaks out. Jake's column can be read here: Simon World
