This chapter discusses the views and beliefs of some of the key players in the 1967 disturbances. These men were Jack Cater (personal assistant of the governor), Liang Shangyuan (former director of the Hong Kong branch of the Xinhua News Agency), Tsang Tak-sing, Tsang Yok-sing, Wu Tai-chow (the man who took part in writing history), Chak Nuen-fai (an accidental political prisoner), Wong Kin-lap (a leader of one of the unions), Liu Yat-yuen, and Chong Wai-hang. It also examines the lives of some of the people who did not belong to the leftist camp but had their careers ruined by the disturbances and whose stories were seldom told by historians. Leung Yiu-wah was a bomb-planter who remains unrepentant about the bomb attacks. Luk Kai-lau was a police constable during the 1967 riots. For him, both policemen and the general public were in a helpless situation during the riots.

Keywords:   Jack Cater, Liang Shangyuan, Tsang Tak-sing, Tsang Yok-sing, Wu Tai-chow, Chak Nuen-fai, Wong Kin-lap, Liu Yat-yuen, Chong Wai-hang, Luk Kai-lau
