Aaaaaand, it's Western countries to blame.

 

I'm curious to know if anyone reading that in China actually believes a foreign country can convince 'happy, content people' to come out in their millions - risking tear gas, police batons and who knows what else - to protest something they agree with.

How do you explain to your kids that you sold their freedom, prosperity and opportunity for the future before they ever become adults? How do you tell someone that life will get worse with more control instead of better but it's for your own good. Pissed off does not even begin to explain the feeling.

Wow, that's an escalation.

 

I bet there's some scary sh*t going on behind the scenes now... wonder if stories about unexplained 'suicides and accidents' involving the ringleaders and reports of 'foreign organisers' will start coming out soon.

This was escalation and throwdown. July 1, party day for the mainland, anniversary of the hong kong agreement, and also canada day for the canucks. This was in your face world humilation like gorbochov having to use the back door instead of the red carpet in june 89, hope it does not end like the last time China lost face to the world.

Core Hong Kong Protesters 'Prepared To Die For Their Cause' During Riots

Fri, 07/05/2019 - 09:12

A core group of radical protesters who led the violent siege of Hong Kong's legislature on Monday were willing to die for their cause as martyrs, according to SCMP

Approximately ten 'diehards' with a 'bring it on' attitude had no qualms about facing police batons, rubber bullets or worse, as they broke into and trashed the Legislative Council building. 

"The protesters at the front were willing to sacrifice themselves. They turned so violent, hoping police would use aggressive force against them or shoot them with rubber bullets or beanbag rounds," said SCMP's source, adding "If the individuals were badly injured or even killed, all the blame would have been placed on police so as to spark global condemnation, and eventually bring the whole administration down." 

 

 

Hong Kong leadership expects the radical group to organize future protests in order to spark future clashes with the police that may lead to their desired outcome. 

 

Hong Kong police made their first arrest on Wednesday after searching for those who used makeshift battering rams to smash the glass in front of the legislature - many of whom were wearing masks to avoid identification.

At 1pm, the protesters led by the 'kamikaze' core of radicals began using a metal cart and iron bars to break the building's glass as riot police stood by. After they finally broke in around 9pm, the protesters ransacked the building, spraying graffiti on the walls and tearing down political leaders' portraits.

A new protest is planned for Sunday according to the Straits Times.

Ah, and it brings out who people are. Back in Scandinavia a local debate group for Chinese people blew up over this. The majority of course thinks "Hongkongers are doing a dangerous thing".... standard Childish retoric used to clearly mark support for the motherland, but no real argumentaion as to why. 

 

Simple questions like "then why does people cross the border every day to buy safe products in Hong Kong" ? gets random answers. People are blind to the fight the people of Hong Kong are fighting. 

 

But the very real fight against extradition of course should be supported by anyone who ever plans to spend time in HK, as, if passed, will no longer be a safe place for anyone, who has ever in a public forum, utters his/hers opinion about the great leaders penis size.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
