    People in Hong Kong are preparing to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

    Fearing continued anti-government unrest, authorities have cancelled some of the main events.

    They have also banned the sale of items with any political messages.

    But that is unlikely to stop some people.

    Al Jazeera's Sarah Clarke reports from Hong Kong.
