    thanks chud

  3. The protesters are the spawn of Hong Kong’s 34,000 registered NGOs, many of which receive funding from the U.S. and Europe.

    Martin Lee, founder of the Democratic Party, a member organization of the Civil Human Rights Front, met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who expressed support for the protests at the meeting. Hong Kong’s Civil Human Rights Front, the coalition behind the current protests, receive funding from the NED along with HK Institute of Human Resource Management, HK Confederation of Trade Unions, v Journalists Association, Civic Party, Labor Party and Democratic Party.

    Hong Kong has rich, exploitable resources of frustration: despite decades of Western funding it has a poverty rate of 20% (23.1% for children) compared to less than 1% in mainland China.

    While 98% of China’s bottom quintile own their homes free and clear, HK home ownership has fallen from 54% to 49% in the past decade. Frustrated, angry people are exploitable especially since, as in the US, their ‘democratic’ government–beholden to property developers and landlords–is oddly incapable of changing their situation. I wonder why?

    Beijing’s completion of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and the opening of a Hong Kong-mainland high-speed rail link, along with the subsequent political and media backlash from the US and UK are recent examples of major setbacks for Washington and London in this ongoing battle for influence and the West’s ungraceful retreat amid it.

    The extradition law, if passed, will set a precedent and further erode British demands imposed during the 1997 handover, leading to the accelerated political and economic integration of Hong Kong.

    Non violence? Imagine how the NYPD would respond if one of their officers were assaulted this way:

  4. Herald says:

    The link does not working for me, at least, but that’s not too surprising these days.

  5. Herald says:

    Black Pigeon likes his holidays in HK, but that’s not a good enough reason to maintain the place as a haven for crooks.

    Also Black Pigeon’s exceptionally dark view of both China and its economy is rather worrying. His information looks as if it was lifted from a State Department fact sheet.
