CCP forces withdraw from Hong Kong
30 September 1945. After brief clashes between KMT and CCP forces in Kowloon and the New Territories, the communists withdraw after a British request. Fighting continues along the Sino–British border and inside Guangdong province, however. The British Military Administration notes continued KMT and CCP propaganda activities in the colony, with the Nationalists denouncing continued British rule. Both parties remain active during subsequent decades and are responsible for major riots in 1956 and 1967.
