I know their history lah :lol: I just find it an irony that a society founded on the principles of overthrowing the Qing Dynasty and counted Sun Yat-sen as a member is openly siding with the CPC.
Why you find it ironic? :?

One thing's for sure, someone is supporting the riot and wants to undermine Hong Kong's independence. This is really sad. We can never really buy peace.

If this continue, future of hk worrying, esp. young generation

Hk airport cancelled all flights, due to protests.

Avoid flying to Hongkong, the airport (arrival hall, departure hall) all occupied by protesters

The Chinese govt has been planning to clamp on the protest riot. It may hv started by the HK ppl, but had since been used as an excuse to riot & by foreign influencers. The Chinese govt let it roll & let the rats run out thinking as foreign influence (with funds to support) they can change or push Chinese rule out. What were they thinking? There’s no turning back.

I only wished the Chinese govt do more for the HKgers in terms of housing conditions & economy.

Now, thinking once the police act to round up these thugs & all, and close airport, nobody can escape arrests. Not even those trying to head to ShenZhen. Truly no escape. Just show how throughly the police fr both HK & PRC had planned it. Just wished the police are not so brutal. I can’t look.

The biggest concern for many in the city is that China will eventually use force to restore order. Such a move would undermine the “one country, two systems” principle that has underpinned Hong Kong’s success since 1997, and potentially lead to a crippling withdrawal of special trading privileges by the U.S. On Monday, the Communist Party-backed Global Times reported that the Chinese People’s Armed Police have been assembling across the border in Shenzhen ahead of “apparent large-scale exercises.”
