Local parents in Hong Kong can hardly buy baby formula milk powder in drugs stores and supermarkets, as smugglers from mainland China storm to this tiny city to buy milk powder and resell for huge profits in China. Many retailers stockpiled milk powder and are reluctant to sell to local parents as they can sell their stocks to mainland smugglers instead for huge profits. Countries like Germany, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand exercise rationed sale to tourist buyers from China but the Hong Kong government frame the situation as a matter of "free trade" and refuse to exercise its legal power to stop cross-border smuggling. The Hong Kong government is even planning to ration milk powder supply to its own citizens while letting Chinese smugglers transport unlimited quantities of milk powder to China with the cooperation of corrupt Chinese customs officials.
We request international support and
assistance as babies in Hong Kong will soon face malnutrition if the situation continues.
Emptying Hong Kong's baby milk powder reserve is one of the tactics used
by communist China to cleanse Hong Kong from its locals. Hong Kong's future generation will be virtually
starved out. After the communist take-over of Hong Kong in 1997, this
city has the lowest birth rate in the world, and the biggest immigration
flux from the mainland to "replenish" the "natural" loss of locals. Very
soon, mainland Chinese immigrants will out-number the locals. That is
what happened in Tibet, decades ago.
