Hong Kong JuniusHo69 
18+ tag to hopefully promote decent conversation Hong Kong has had schools cancelled since last Wednesday and is expected to close schools tomorrow as well. Good job, protesters. What people don't seem to realise is when you beat up people simply for speaking mandarin in public, light people on fire, vandalise public property (not to mention private businesses) and paralyse a city, you are not fighting for any virtuous freedom, instead the freedom to trample the freedoms of others. In claiming to protect freedom of speech, people now feel frightened to speak Mandarin in crowded public places. Social media platforms seem to portray Hong Kong as standing in 100% solitude against the big bad CCP police force infiltrating the city. How dumb do you have to be to believe this? Do people think everyone in HK likes it when these masked cowards vandalise MTR stations and cause citywide paralysis? The economy in HK is going to shit, soon China will deem Hong Kong disposable enough to actually bring in the PLA, and then you are truly fucked aren't you... Watching the parents of the children trapped in PolyU cry out in pain, asking for the captured to be treated with compassion makes me cringe. As parents, if you allow your child to attend these radical, violent proceedings, you have failed as a parent and as a member of society. If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. Best solution is to stop the violence and have protest leaders come to an agreement with the HK government.

You tend to be put in concentration camps when you foolishly dissent against a government which you are powerless against. What are you going to do, nuke the CCP? I don't like China either I think they should GTFO, but what are you going to do?

My point is that no one in the world has the power to displace the CCP and their methods without using force which will result in mutually assured destruction. The more people get angry now and resort to violence as their momentary catharsis against the big bad Chinese, the more China will make their lives even worse when 2047 comes around. Of course no one wants to have their freedoms trampled, I think we can agree on that. But since the extradition bill - the actual looming threat which was rightfully protested against -was not just shelved but cancelled, I think the best option for the Hong Kong protesters to take is to come to a diplomatic agreement with the government. No more violence

Don't paint it as something with odds, like there is a chance of success whatsoever. Because realistically, both you and I know there is 0 chance of Hong Kong achieving any sort of autonomy. At this rate, I don't think anyone even knows what the protesters are fighting for now that the extradition bill was cancelled. The more you fight for something which you will NEVER achieve, the more you will suffer when China actually DOES take control of China in 2047. The solution? Stop the bleeding and stop vandalising shit and paralysing the city. How is that autistic logic?

Many radical protesters in Hong Kong are arguing for, amongst other things, autonomy, free elections, etc. Unfortunately, China will never allow these things to happen. It's not like I'm being pessimistic. It's good that we both agree on that. Since these protesters are effectively ravaging the city for a cause which is unattainable, I'm arguing that the radicals in the city must stop before they give the CCP an excuse to actually restrict ALL of their freedoms in 2047.

Because 2047 is the handover date when Hong Kong relinquishes the "One Country, Two Systems" deal and truly becomes a part of China. The leadership positions in China (I'm talking about high, high levels of government) are quite fortified, and any hint of revolution in China is always quashed - to insinuate that China would collapse would require an economic collapse. China makes up 15.5% of the global economy, and the USA makes up 23.3%. I don't think a collapse is coming any time soon, especially considering America's anti-globalist outlook and China's expanding outreach

Search up about the ghost cities on youtube to see what i'm talking about, ADVChina is a good channel to watch. They just shit out buildings because the rich collect government subsidies just for owning them. The demand for housing is in freefall yet the price keeps getting artificially pushed up - this doesnt match supply and demand and has created a pretty nasty bubble that has to pop eventually just like the american housing market in 2008. Will the economy recover and the ccp maintain power? Maybe but who knows, I'm just waiting for that bubble to pop lmao

If this is true (I'll read into this, thank you), I still doubt that the resulting collapse of the Chinese economy would get to the point where the CCP will be overthrown. The majority of the Chinese economy is still comprised of exports.
2019-11-19 08:07

Protesting is as old as civilization. Every continent except for Antarctica has experienced all levels of protest and riots in order to make changes within their government. People throughout the world want freedom and liberty and they're willing to fight until they achieve it. "Both you and I know there is 0 chance of Hong Kong achieving any sort of autonomy" this statement simply doesn't register within their minds and they're going to do whatever it takes in order to achieve their goals... Civil rights, anti-war, and judicial protests have occurred in China, the US, Russia, the Soviet Union, SE Asia, European countries, African countries, etc. in varying levels of intensity. History teaches us that people are more than willing to die for what they're fighting for
2019-11-19 22:38
You fight against it, dying as a freeman is better than living as a slave, you think you will get a somewhat decent life under China??? pffff you got a taste of freedom but it seems like you took it for granted, your life will be an absolute torture. Move to China if you want to live like China, you seem to hate people taking freedom for what it is, the most valuable thing humans can have....all im saying is that you should live what you preach brother.

One way of knowing what is propaganda and what's not, is to actually see it yourself and to use logic to separate fact from lies. I am studying in an American university, and I can tell you that NEITHER Chinese nor western media is honest. Some reports Made by NYT, Bloomberg, etc, have even twisted the translation of Chinese language to make their message more anti-China. At the same time Chinese propaganda tends to be more STUPID. You can instantly recognize it because literally everything they say revolve round something like "under the leadership of Xi this and that", "The party and the central government bla bla bla". No one reads these shit in China. But in general, as far as what I've noticed, Chinese people do understand the west better than that vice versa. Learning western politics and history is mandatory for a Chinese student since middle school. Further more, using a vpn is not illegal in China, but providing one is not. In 2018, over tens on millions of Chinese tourists travelled abroad, and If China is actually as bad as the western media portraits, why don't they just stay there.
2019-11-19 22:23
it's 2019... if certain countries around the world REALLY wanted to know whether or not there were concentration camps throughout China, they could easily find out with satellite imagery (and i guarantee some already know the answer to that question...) but think about what would become of that information.... whoever found it would be responsible of reporting it. once the world finds out, what happens next? UN laws would pretty much force intervention, but who would do it? what would this ultimately cause throughout the world? conspiracy theory? maybe... but practicality and responsibility both play major roles in this
2019-11-19 22:44

China douglax 
You are absolutely right. But one question: how do you distinguish a concentration camp from a normal prison. Considering the relationshit between China and the US right now, I imagine the US would have exposed everything that could damage the CCP leadership. They don't need the UN to intervene, all they need to do is to just put out some legit proof and I promise China would collapse. If the best they've got is a picture of a top of a building, I would be disappointed by the CIA. Also I couldn't think of any motivation for the CCP to, despite the risk, put one million minorities into torture camps. Maybe I'm wrong, but I would much prefer to believe in what I see with my own eyes, or information with legit proof.
2019-11-19 23:01
They'll know. If they don't initially, they will surely find out. Believe it or not, Trump wants to strengthen global relationships while also looking after our best interests. Exposing this type of stuff, or defacing Chinese political leaders/policies to that extent, would show very poor taste while also severely damaging global relations and/or any planned future reconciliation efforts. That would be an irreversibly terrible idea.... It would be awful to find out that there are camps like that throughout China, but at the same time i don't think people would be necessarily surprised. There were a number of "re-education" camps throughout Vietnam after the war. Some of those S. Vietnamese were in camps for over 10 years.... only recently did the Vietnamese really start telling their stories. I, like you, much prefer to believe in what i see with my own eyes. But at the same time, stories of this nature (Chinese camps like this) don't just manifest out of thin air...

China douglax 
I agree, but the camps are probably not for torturing Uighurs or harvesting organs (I don't know why so many people believe this). There are probably people detained for political reasons in China and also probably in every other countries as well.
2019-11-19 23:36
yea for sure. I think the organ harvesting thing is a little too far-fetched for me. Camps designed to torture Uyghurs or other ethnic groups are unfortunately more plausible, but also you have to think about what time we live in. Like i said about the satellite imagery, you'd hope that countries would SEVERELY hesitate before they started going down those paths. The world will inevitably find out....
2019-11-19 23:41
#254
 | 
China douglax 
Yes, but before there's enough evidence, I don't want to rush to any conclusion. Still, I don't see detaining Uyghurs benefits the CCP in any way. Furthermore, terrorism was a problem in Xinjiang. Back in 2009, extremist in Urumqi grouped up on streets and smashed everything in their way. 140 people were killed, over 2000 people were injured. " youtube.com/watch?v=JXL9mxV49xo" Year 2014 in Kunming, a dozen terrorists from Xinjiang went into a train station killed 29 people with knives, 130 were wounded. "bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-26402367" Guess we'll have to wait to find out whether these things are really educating the extremists or torturing the innocents.

What people have to understand is that there isn't much that can be done. Protesting now - when the extradition bill has not just been shelved, but cancelled - only serves to ruin the state of the HK economy and paralyse the city, resulting in further discontent. Unless China undergoes a radical change starting from the highest positions of government (which, due to Xi's term limit law, is impossible barring extraordinary circumstances), Hong Kong is best suited to sit content. The violence only serves to give China an excuse to treat Hong Kong even more harshly when 2047 rolls around.

It's not. Downloading and using a VPN is legal, so you can download Norton or something from China . Cause if Vpns were illigal, wouldn't that fuck up all businesses? However from my knowledge, some cases of creating Vpns is illigal. But I'm pretty sure you still can, just with government approval or something? But most people download western or Russian vpns through Apk's

So long as you remain at home, it shouldn't be an issue. However as a student going to school on the Peak (HK Island West), I've had to take taxis to get from home to school and vice versa. These past few days, the problem at the Cross-Harbour tunnel has escalated to the point where the Education Bureau has ordered all schools closed until further notice. So I've been forced to stay at home. I witnessed the stabbing / ear biting of the Taikoo Shing district councillor after leaving a Korean BBQ restaurant on the 3rd or 4th of November (i think), but I promptly left with my family on a Taxi. Unless you ACTIVELY seek out conflict, you aren't in danger, just major inconvenience. Taxi bills from where I live to the Peak are around 17USD, one way. Per day I might have to spend around 40USD on transport, depending on road blockages.

Of course it’s escalated too far, but you have to acknowledge that what majority of the protesters demands is just. Not to mention that mainland China will 100% crack down on Hong Kong when they finally annex Hong Kong completely, you will all be labeled as high risk, you will be watched like a hawk, you will likely be searched and beaten for anything they think is out of the ordinary, until they think you are firmly under control. It must be terrifying to live in Hong Kong knowing that eventually your life as you know it will end. Also the police are insanely corrupt (ironic coming from USA I know) so it’s not like the protesters are just rioting for no reason.

I feel like the original purpose of the protesting is lost imo. If I'm not mistaken, the initial purpose was just to stop the extradition bill, but that has already been withdrawn, so I'm really not sure how this escalated all the way to total democracy.(correct me if I'm wrong)

Yeah, it’s for sure gone too far, I think they are now fighting for the police to be held accountable to the crimes they are committing (ironic seeing how a lot of them are committing crimes as well) and for there to be more fair elections (a democratic protester was banned from running) and maybe full on freedom. But some of their violence is in retaliation, it seemed like they were being beaten unfairly at the beginning and they thought it would be smart to fight back (it’s not, cause it’s now being used as propaganda against them and makes them look like terrorist) so now they think they can win against China for some reason

Although I personally didnt have a positive relationship with Hong Kong, I supported the initial protesting as I understood where they came from. However, the violent actions of some protestors arent very good, which is a shame because most of them are peaceful and pretty sure most people are there just to see what's going on.(Zhao re nao) The actions that some of them do, like smashing shops, stoping the MTR, and blocking roads and such aren't doing much but fucking yourself over. These actions will impact hongkongers daily lives, impact those who aren't too interested in the whole situation and just want to go to work. One of my dad's friends had to walk 2 hours everyday to get to work cause of the trains being stopped, which is a pain for many people. I don't dislike all protestors, just the extreme ones. It's just that, I'd rather not for a tienenmen v2 to happen (my parents atleast, cause they were directly affected) because the curry events, are really similar to what happened in the past. Media from different regions really portray the situation in different lights. Western media is praising the protestors while the chinese (mainland) are portraying them as savages. Honestly, imo for reliable info, it comes down to first hand experience, which you have. Best of luck to you man.

You can't just bring out some demands and expects the government to fulfill, if not then destroy the city. That's called threatening.
2019-11-20 01:18
Except their demands wasn't even that selfishly beneficial to them, and more about expecting something normal from their government? You know, asking them to be responsible for their actions (police) against their own citizen and such, returning to the position as if there's no riot occurring, etc. No, that's not threatening, else you'd call any escalated protests as one. I don't know how skewed your "norms" are by living in China, but the world isn't looking at them in such a way.

Have you looked at the five demand? It is actually very inconsistent and irresponsible. 1. To withdraw the extradition bill 2. To stop labeling protesters as “rioters” 3. To drop charges against protesters 4. To conduct an independent inquiry into police behavior 5. To implement genuine universal suffrage for both the Legislative Council and the Chief Executive 1. They have already done that months ago. 2. Definition of rioters: one of a group of people who behave in a violent way in a public place, often as a protest. 3. Why? They are the ones claiming HK no longer has the rule of law, why do they have the privilege to destroy public properties and to hurt people they disagree with without getting punished? 4. Again, double standerd! Many polices are already punished because of their inappropriate behavior. Why would the rioters and the police be treated differently under the same law? 5. This is the only one that make sense, despite it may not be realistic. This protest is not the same as a typical western one. They committed serious violence toward the police and the general public who dares differ with them. They destroyed properties that don't belong to them. They leaked information of polices' families and some of them are violently bullied by the protesters. The world is looking at them in a different way is because the media is extremely biased. The western media never showed the incidences where an old man was burned alive by rioters when he was just trying to stop the violence. A 70 yr old cleaner was killed on street because the rioters was throwing bricks off a bridge without being responsible enough to realize random people can be severely injured because of that. I respect the courage of standing up against authorities, but these iresponsible behaviors make me realize that they (the violent ones) are just some brainless babies not heroes.

If you assume I'm a fake flagger, then there isn't a premise upon which we can have a meaningful conversation - I'll just address your second point. People seem to be hung up on the preschool mentality that whoever started the violence first is in the wrong, and therefore the HK police are in the wrong - yet, even adhering to this principle, the HK protesters are at fault. The first violent protests occurred on 12th June, 2019. I remember because I couldn't go home and was stuck at a friend's house on the Peak. This is when protesters uprooted bricks in Tamar Park and stole materials from a nearby construction site when tensions in Admiralty and Harcourt Road escalated. The police did not do anything - the protesters had committed vandalism first. Plus, I think we can all agree that any argument about reasonable force use goes out the window when you commit crimes as such as citywide vandalism, assault, arson etc. that we have seen (maybe not you, since you don't even live here) from the protesters in the past few weeks (coming on months, now)
2019-11-19 06:37
Nice, you're not disturbed by the little bait. I actually figured about that way long time ago before it erupted into this kind of scale, similar to your points about what if the protesters are indeed just way too crazy, that we (or at least me and a lot of other people worldwide) are only presented to good sides of the protesters. Tho I kinda believed and maybe till now do that they're way more peaceful (comparatively) than the police will ever be due to the force, items/tools, and authority they have. Yeah the answer is not black & white, there're def a lot of blacks on both sides. But man, I just can't justify any of the force used by the police in front of the peaceful protester such as the EMS, the enraging calling of objectifying human, dismemberment/"suicide", torture; none of the evil done by the protesters are even close to what the police have done, individually. Maybe sure in the large scale, but that'd be govt-population kind of response, not per individual police-protester. Tho, one curious point I wanted to ask all these times is: how representative are the protesters really? As a whole vs supporter vs ones protesting in the field vs the ones opposing vs the ones ignoring, etc.

I get that the police have in many cases gone overboard - especially in the Sai Wan Ho shooting incident where the police was evidently in no position of harm. But I would consider it negligible to simply discount the damage that a small minority of protesters have done to Hong Kong's reputation and Hong Kong's economy. The overwhelming attitude in Hong Kong is not one supporting either side, rather a wish for the violence to come to a halt and for normality to resume. I would argue that the protesters represent a radical minority in Hong Kong, that is they are the ones who dare to act on anti-Chinese (Chinese being mainland) sentiment which exists in Hong Kong. Most people just want shit to stop, at this rate I wouldn't be surprised if foreign businesses started to leave HK
2019-11-19 07:20
I don't think foreign businesses will leave until the dust settles and the world can see what the outcome is. If the protesters are forced to compromise on terms they don't agree with, you very-well might see businesses leave in protest, which would severely amplify the problem. If mutual terms are agreed upon and people are genuinely happy with the result, i don't see anything changing.

I really don't know how the violence escalated in HK, but in most of similar cases are the police (politic police) the one who start first being above what's ok and then they try with laws to put in jail anyone who thinks different (politic judgment). Then, most of this rallies start as pacific rallies, with some incidents here and there, but nothing too big. If the dominant party is smart, it will try to negotiate on a way everybody is kinda happy, but if they keep doing the same repression, one day, people who use his right to rally pacifically, will either go home or go fight. It's just a natural behavior in all species, if you get pushed and pushed, one day you're gonna show your claws or leave. If that day happens, and politics keep pushing, then blood comes sooner or later. You could think that the protesters are the wrong ones to use violence, but although I don't agree with violence, China is the one who pushed them to that no end street, what's the alternative choice? Lose freedom and in some cases go to jail or death. It's amazing that we are on S.XXI and we can go to the moon but we still deal with this kind of problems.
2019-11-19 12:50
"You could think that the protesters are the wrong ones to use violence, but although I don't agree with violence, China is the one who pushed them to that no end street, what's the alternative choice? Lose freedom and in some cases go to jail or death." ^ Bingo Protest in varying levels of intensity have occurred everywhere throughout the world and history teaches us that people are more than willing to fight and die for liberties, freedom, and what they believe is best for the people. You can't think for one second that this situation in Hong Kong will be any different.

+1, had these protests happened in America (which the protesters seem to hold in such regard) we would be seeing 1000+ dead, easily
2019-11-19 07:46
dunno about 1000+ dead... even during the Civil Rights Movement and Vietnam anti-war protests, which were the most severe protesting movements we've had since the Civil War, we didn't lose that many people. But LOTS were hospitalized because the police primarily used clubs to manage the crowds. Isolated incidents, like at Kent State University, were the severe ones where law enforcement used firearms with live ammo... The footage from those years is utterly unbelievable.... I couldn't even imagine being this age back then lol Generally speaking, Americans support the ideology of protesting against the government when they believe they're not being treated justly and/or if the country is turning down a dangerous and costly path. To be honest i'm not exactly sure what the movement would be like if it was in America, but i will guarantee that there would be the same behavior, violence, and vandalism that you're seeing in HK. But in America it's just sooooooo much easier to gather large groups of people, march to government buildings, shut down cities, etc. It's honestly embraced and people skip school or work to participate. Only about a month ago, the teachers and school admins in Chicago (like 30k people or more i think) protested about the schools, how they were getting paid, their treatment, etc. The protests went on for days, they marched through the city streets, and disrupted a lot of what was going on throughout the city.

I'm not generalising the protest movement whatsoever. In fact, you not only generalising the Hong Kong people as being violent, but mischaracterising my argument as a simple "(hk protesters) violent = protest bad" is disingenuous. This whole situation in HK, where you have a violent minority being portrayed by Western media as a powerful, vocal majority (due to the 2 million on June 9th/16th I suppose), wreaking havoc and causing inconvenience for the general populous, as well as sealing HK's fate for 2047 and ensuring harsh treatment by the CCP (who by the way, are firmly still in control and WILL remain in control) is so avoidable. All the protest leaders have to do is come to the negotiating table, then you will NOT have all these problems with the police, and with sensible negotiating we can come to a resolution. And the peaceful protests have ended after the extradition bill, buddy.

You're the one using incidents, which admittely are becoming more frequent, as a reason why the protests are futile and cause for fragmenting the hong kong people. Your argument that protest leaders should come to the negotiation table is laughable. If they do that they will either get arrested or just straight up ignored. This indeed started because of the extradition bill but became much bigger than and is now a part of the hong kong people fighting for their independence which is constantly threathened by china.

I completely agree, that if there is reasonable need for resistance, then resistance is justified. That is why I completely supported the 2 million protesting against the unfair extradition bill. I think that bill should 100% have been killed and I was happy when it did die. But now? What constitutional order is being infringed upon in Hong Kong? One can't even argue for the mask ban, since the high court ruled that unconstitutional yesterday. Yet, protests persist. Using buzzwords like "propaganda" and "China is the enemy" is not going to do anyone any good. Clarify your stance. You argue that Hong Kong citizens are rightfully fighting for their rights, which are being infringed upon, and that there is a chance (I'm assuming this is what you meant, feel free to correct me) that there could be another French Revolution in China or something similar. I'm going to tell you now that technology has come a long way from 1789. There is no longer a small disparity between the state militia and that of the people. China holds 290 nuclear weapons and the largest army in the world. The advent of foreign intervention would run along a thin line, perhaps resulting in nuclear war. I'm not so sure you can draw a parallel between the French Revolution and today.
2019-11-19 08:02
The French revolution is only an example that you have sometimes to fight to survive even with violence. Lose of Freedom is btw one of the things that threaten your life I don't compare the times or the situations 1:1 Buzzwords? Propaganda is the only thing China do in the media. That has nothing to do with truth. So it is the correct term. And China is an enemy not only for HK for the whole world and If China doesn't change their politics in a long term a real war between countires will happen cuz they also threaten their neighbours like Japan and also the USA etc.

This isn't about a fight for survival. I don't know how many times I have to rehash this argument, but not only is this fight un-winnable, but it's also largely futile. What rights are being infringed upon? You've yet to answer this question beyond "Loss of freedom". Even so, I understand if people want to fight something against which they have no chance, but wouldn't a diplomatic agreement be the better alternative to the current situation, with injuries/casualties on both sides? Also, you seem to be billing me as some Chinese propaganda shill. I don't know if you don't trust flags - it's perfectly natural for people on HLTV to not - but I was born and raised in HK. You've failed to address the bulk of my argument in any meaningful way labelling it "propaganda" and brushing it aside. I find it funny that you cite a coming conflict with China and the world when China is taking on (and becoming gradually more successful) a hugely globalist outlook, even moreso than the USA, who is having their own problems with Trump in office. So please clarify again why China is the enemy of the world, beyond your own disagreements with their political system (which I also find regrettable)
2019-11-19 08:17
the protestor said what they want for a diplomatic way. This isn't too much. So China has to decide and if they still wanna fight then okay but it is their fault. Fight for freedom is a basic human nope nature right. When you create a state you have to be sure that all people in the state agree with the terms. In a democracy, people get ask every time. That is what the protestors want and by 7 million people with at least 2 Million that fight you can consider the majority of HK want that. Your state will fail if so many people don't agree with the terms. About the last part the conflict between Japan and China about sea-rights resources etc. China use North-Korea to threat the USA and support a wanting war. China also started to abuse Africa states like many European di at 1900 but China will own them for real not only by money.

Of course you can fight for freedom. I agree that it's a basic right. But what freedom are you fighting for? This is like the 4th time I've asked this question. When the vast majority of HKers called for the withdrawal of the extradition bill, it took a while because the HK government is shit but it did happen: scmp.com/news/hong-kong/politics/article.. Now, the vast vast vast minority of violent protesters are garnering sympathy with the West. Why? What rights are they fighting for? Also, just a question, do you think American imperialism is something worth calling them the "enemy of the people" for? I'm not a Chinese apologist, but for every instance of Chinese imperialism/encroachment there must be three of unwarranted American intervention.
2019-11-19 08:38
The difference between the USA and China is the USA to leave someday the countries and they almost only attacked countries with dictators. China in another hand backs up a dictator like Russia in Syria. So till today, the USA has some boundaries. China will only expense like ants. They don't really care who stays in front of them. For them, they are all the same. They even suppress people in their own country and steal the country. Look at Taiwan. Do the USA steal Canada or Mexico? They fight 4 a fair vote system. For freedom of speech and still be independent as possible from China but they don't demand full independence. HK Government agreed 1/5 request for a diplomatic way LUL.

1-Full withdrawal of the extradition bill 2-An independent commission of inquiry into alleged police brutality 3-Retracting the classification of protesters as “rioters” 4-Amnesty for arrested protester 5-Dual universal suffrage, meaning for both the Legislative Council and the Chief Executive Those are the demandings. Maybe they could sound stupid or not worth all this fight, but when official reports said police didn't kill a single protester, but there are a lot of "suicides" records around, I guess is normal that they fight for that. I mean, when you want to commit suicide you don't cut yourself in pieces to achieve that (china logic). I have no idea if that's true or not, but they keep yelling their names and saying that they won't commit suicide when they are arrested, so at least is a common fear they have, and there's plenty of images of people arrested going to trains that reminds something that happened not so long ago... I mean, if the protestors are really terrorist and this is fake news, why don't you let an international and independent comission to see what's really happening there? I mean, if police is really kind with no torture and all of this is just HK terrorist propaganda, why you don't let the world see the truth from a non-biased point of view? I think there's no need to explain why and which is the side attacking democracy and civil and freedom rights.

To begin with, two of the five demands contradict one another. Under the rule of law, why would policed be punished by their violent actions but not the protesters? Also, according to the Oxford English dictionary, rioters means one of a group of people who behave in a violent way in a public place, often as a protest. So I guess they also wanna redefine the word riot. There are no "independent commission". Every agency only report one side of the story. But I can show you some cases of violent riots.

where did they undermine the agreement? by having a bill for extradition for criminals? if the brainwashed hk youth wants to remove this bill, they are protecting these criminals. is anyone wants to support these riots, they are the real enemy which is usa here. not surprised to see someone so brainwashed that he thinks the guys who speak truth are brainwashed.

This is a common misconception. First of all, China doesn't give a shit about China. Hong Kong messing up Hong Kong doesn't impact China or its citizens in any way. Second, the CCP has everything to lose and nothing to gain if they forcefully suppress these riots. The situation in Hong Kong is fully televised and covered by the media and if they do indeed "send in the tanks" like you suggest, the international community will do everything they can to sanction China without risking war. They will become a pariah in the international community. Foreign businesses will pull out. Investments plummet. Countries stop taking Chinese imports, etc. etc. Contrary to popular belief, the CCP does indeed know what they are doing.

Don't get me wrong. I can only imagine how fucked this situation is. On one side there's the shit the chinese government tries to pull. On the other side the daily life of all Hong Kong citizens is fucked. My stake? I hate totalitarian governments (or wannabe totalitarians). If one day some of those cunts succeed without anyone fighting it, it creates blueprint for others - and fuck that. The governments already dictate enough of all our daily lives. I don't need supreme overlords like Xi Ping in my life.

Democracy only works just fine if people are at least somewhat able to understand the whole situation, otherwise, the democracy will only lead to the rise of populists. Also, it's impossible to ensure true democracy when your current economic system is capitalism, I think I don't have to explain why.

I know. I live in Hong Kong. I understand you hate totalitarian governments. I hate them as well. But we here in Hong Kong were dealt a particularly devastating hand. All I'm pointing out is that with our position, Hong Kongers are in no position to make an real change to actually meet these demands, and in trying to do so we are just screwing ourselves further. You know why? Because although China couldn't give enough of a shit about us today, if the protests escalate to a certain point, we will get retribution in 2047. Advocating for global awareness on this issue is a far more impactful course of action. Like, if you live in the US, asking to pass the bill about HK etc.
2019-11-19 14:14
saying these simple things but want to get some decent conversation? you are not decent in the first place. you need to go through these masks to get to the truth below: 1. china (beijing) will make hongkong a city like any other in mainland. 2. protestors are trying to overthrow the colonization of china. 3. hk gov pretends to work for 1 but in fact many members in it are supporting 2. both sides know these above and both sides know that their opponent know these above. CCP built a strong hierarchical organization to control the nation. under this system every official holds response to who hired him, not the people. and winnie the pooh, on top of the system, can dominate all 1.5 billion people. hk protestors put out 5 demands that seems not related to independence. but, they know that CCP will never allow a city in china not under the control system of beijing. china is waiting for a reason, a reason for massacre on streets. if they protestors remove their cover saying "we want to remove this gov" then its time for chinese troops to suppress them. and of course protestors knows this so they pretend to put out some reasonable demands and dont want to meet beijing plan. but we know that world is ruled by power, so the final stage would be chinese troops killing anyone who dont want to be chinese anyway. we can do nothing and we will do nothing. if all 7.5 million hk citizens dont want to live under authoritarian then chinese troops would simply kill all these 7.5 million and bring chinese mainlanders to live there instead. hk police (and any other troops who works for authoritarian) are not willing to kill their siblings, thats why those emperors (like Nicolae Ceausescu) failed when they had controlled military forces and the people had none. but chinese troops dont have such a problem.

China doesn't need to bring in any military force to Hong Kong. At this rate, Hong Kong will die itself. Do you honestly think China gives a shit about Hong Kong in any meaningful way? You may have been right when Hong Kong made up something crazy like 30% of the Chinese GDP. In fact, most people don't give a shit about the situation in Hong Kong beyond virtue signalling on their social media posts for likes.
2019-11-19 12:30
yeah, chinese dont give sh*t about life and death in hk. they just want more territories. ive heard many chinese saying like "nuke all taiwanese to seize taiwan" or "what we need is land not ppl". so they will definitely support a massacre on hongkong streets. thats why i said their (protestors) death is sealed.
2019-11-19 13:04
oh dear how could u take these serious?these words are said to taiwanindependence supporters by a few radical netizens. In fact,we dont even give a shit about who those citizens vote for,we are friendly to everyone as long as they recognize one country two systems
2019-11-19 13:25
Such a pathic story for our social media.they just keep this braindead words on the top of comment.enhance the Nationalism,make people fucking fanatic.its really likes 1984 coming to us
2019-11-19 19:32
Protesters in Hong Kong acknowledge that they can't win by force, that's why they are doing economic damage to Hong Kong itself, what they called "Mutual Destruction". They are avoiding direct confrontation with the police force.

It's a price to pay, I don't support vandalism (btw the video of the guy being lit on fire was from fake protestors apparentely chinese and not from hong kog) but if it can lead to indipendence then it's necessary

I respect that you've at least laid out your claim, and I completely get that sometimes the ends justify the means, but in this case, China will never allow Hong Kong to secede. That's what's so frustrating about this whole situation. Enough futile violence by a minority in this day and age will, in 2047, ensure great suffering of the majority.
2019-11-19 14:16
I agree. I mean, obviously the chances that the protests lead to any success whatsoever are close to 0. On the other hand, living in a completely unfree society in which you cannot even state your opinions is not really worth living
2019-11-19 14:22
Hker should realize that 1 country comes before 2 system, this is how China works no way around it. Hong Kong will only further prosper and enjoy peace by working with China ( Macau SAR). You don't win the chess game against CCP by smashing your chess pieces while playing in China's chessboard. It will be against your national interest to deal with China in 2047 with a weaker economy , a weaker society. The hatred for China / anti-China sentiments stems from the gut feeling of people that China has grown into a powerful nation that is challenging the collective West . (Partly due to Yellow peril) It is in my believe and hope that East asia countries will work together with China in the future to secure a peaceful region. (China signs defence agreement with South Korea today). It certainly doesnt help when USA elected Donald Trump when the rest of the world is seeking global leadership in dealing with things like Climate change . i hope the rational and cooler heads will prevail in hongkong . Hope OP and your family stay safe in HongKong!

I agree mate but as soon as you don't create the BUZZ, no one will take you seriously. In France we have a big protesting ;ove;emt called "Gillet Jaune" since one year. After 5 weeks protesting peacefully: No sound from government, no sound from medias etc. After 1 week of violence (Bank glasses broken are small other things), our president made a speech. The conclusion is that violence is a way to make people react. That's a fact. Because government will not act until the moment they feel the scare: The scare for their jobs, for their money, for their families... If you just seat down in the street saying you are not happy, nothing will change That's sad, but that's it. I don't remember any revolution that worked without violence.....

HK is wasting everyones time and ruining their future no fucking way west can do anything and regular people from mainland china don't support HK either
2019-11-19 17:23
China is disgusting. Just move to mainland if you want to avoid trouble. We koreans support hong kong protest. But few chinese students in korea, they threaten korean students(mostly girls) for supporting hong kong. I mean wtf lol. Their attitude is absolutely disgusting. You dont support them? Thats fine. Its your choice. But dont call people who fights for freedom 'terrorists'. Korea has also had many historical protests for freedom. That is something. Not terrorism.
2019-11-19 17:30
I repeat myself from another thread about HK. : world is just too cynical and hypocritical. We must boicott moscovia and china on all possible levels without any mercy, "tolerancy" and other "liberal" bullshit. moscovia is criminal state agressor, china is damn communist agressive opressor. How it must work? Complete boicott means total rejection of anything that belong/relevant to those to territories called "countries". When I say everywhere I mean it straight - starting from this site for example - fakeflagging must be stopped. Flags of those two terriotories must be banned. Comments supporting those two terrotories in one way or another must be deleted and users who write them banned. Etc. There are no "good" , "innocent" people living on those territories. Even if a certain (relatively small) percentage of the population does not really support the foreign policy of their states, then in fact such people are still guilty of their inaction. In essence, it is passive collaboration, criminal inaction. In fact, such people are passive accomplices to crimes committed by their state. Also people who don`t consider themselves as cynics and hypocrites, who didn`t forget about morality yet etc must stop buy anything made on those territories, stop watch/listen/read anything produced there etc. This should continue until the power changes there - until people of those territories make revolution. Only after the condemnation of all crimes committed by their states over the centuries and after true repentance, when those terriotories become really normal, world removes the boycott.

It's not wrong to fight against dictatorship. It would going into messes if more protests appeared in street. And the reasons why protests are still there cuz those demands havent done yet. One more thing, HK is governed by democracy for now, but it also would be dictatorship once it slips into CCP.

"Best solution is to stop the violence and have protest leaders come to an agreement with the HK government." We have been trying to do that 3 months ago? When a government can ignore 1and 2 million peaceful protest. Do u still expect them to talk it out with the protesters?
