10 Years Anniversary of Hong Kong's Return to People's Republic of China

On July 1, 2007, it will be the 10th anniversary of the return of Hong Kong from the emperial power of the United Kingdom to the People's Republic of China.

It doesnt seem like 10 years has already past, and it all seems like nothing has changed because China agreed Hong Kong's high level of autonomy in things like legal, judicial, freedoms of speech, etc...little has changed for the common citizen to realize that Hong Kong is no longer a colonial possession of the biggest imperial power of all time.

What do you guys think about this issue? Good?? Bad?? Whats it going to be like in another 10 years? I think there are a large enough diversity of people on this forum (even lots of people from Hong Kong)

Heres a good special segment on CNN for people to read for some good background info about Hong Kong's history, people, culture, etc:
