Macau to ‘elect’ Beijing-backed leader

Reuters, HONG KONG

An open letter from a group of anonymous locals yesterday demanded universal suffrage and said that Beijing had been imposing stronger control with increasingly authoritarian rule.

“The time to fight for our universal rights is now, before Macau becomes just another Chinese city,” the letter said. “The eyes of the world are on Hong Kong right now, but please also take a look at its next-door neighbor.”
