From La Stampa:
At the end of his fast, Zen let it be known that he intended to study more closely the Government’s new regulations regarding the management of the region’s sponsored schools
Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun ended his hunger strike in Hong Kong at 10.00 a.m. Saturday morning, 22 October, by joining in prayer with the many people who had come from early morning to show their solidarity with him and pray.
The 79-year old Chinese-born cardinal looked tired and fragile but was in good spirits after fasting for 72 hours outside the entrance to the Salesian House of Studies in Hong Kong, where he lives in this autonomous province of China. Salesian brothers assisted him to stand up and walk.
After praying and ending his fast, he spoke briefly in a very soft voice to the many people and journalists present.
He began abstaining from all food, except water and Communion, on October 19, in protest against the definitive ruling by the Court of Final Appeal, October 3, that the 200 Catholic primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong cannot be granted an exemption from the policy of school management decided by the Beijing-backed Government of this Special Autonomous Region which returned under China’s rule on 1 July 1997.
