Protests, or riots depending on your outlook, erupted at Mong Kong shopping area at the start of Chinese New Year, in response to police trying to shut down the unlicensed food stalls in the area. Commentators say that these streetfood stands are symbolic og Hong Kong culture, and the events came at a time of worsening relations with the Chinese central government.
