Help to save Pillbox 16 & 17!

Please take a moment to consider signing this petition to save some Hong Kong WWII history. 

The link below is to a petition addressed to the LCSD to save Pillbox 16 & 17 near and on Repulse Bay. My reasons for choosing these two pillboxes specifically is because they are in areas where there are a lot of tourists, and are easily accessible for a large number of people, so it makes sense for the LCSD to invest a small amount of money into them to keep them alive as educational pieces for the Hong Kong public.
