Hong Kong, China
Protesters against a proposed high-speed railway to mainland China bow during a march to government headquarters in Hong Kong, January 16, 2010. The Hong Kong government's proposed high-speed railway to the mainland became a lightning rod for broader discontent at the territory's lack of democracy and government accountability for major policies. Public bitterness grew over the planned razing of a village and rural land to make way for the rail project, which has yet to be built.
