This chapter provides a discussion on the earliest history of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Hong Kong 1920–1926. The story of the CCP in Hong Kong may be said to begin with three men who started the irregular Zhenshanmei Magazine in 1920. The earliest days of the CCP presence in Hong Kong was a part of the story of the party getting established and surviving as a political organisation. It is stated that Hong Kong was in fact an inspiration for the emergent socialist movement on the Mainland. The first major labour event—the Seamen's Strike of 1922—in Hong Kong is described. It then turns to Guangzhou-Hong Kong Strike-Boycott 1925–1926.
