China warns HK protesters with slick military video

China warns HK protesters with slick military video

The garrison's commander, Major General Chen Daoxiang, told visiting U.S. principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for Indo-Pacific security affairs David Helvey in June that the Hong Kong government and city police would have to deal with the demonstrations.

An elderly lady known as "Grandma Wong" is among the most ardent advocates of Britain's Union flag, with her diminutive but vibrant presence a regular feature at the two months of pro-democracy protests that have rocked the worldwide financial hub.

Beijing is walking a fine line between trying to scare protesters and going so far that China's reputation is irrevocably damaged, said Willy Lam, professor in China Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

The gathering - a bid to spread the message of the anti-extradition Bill movement to foreigners visiting the city - had been planned mere hours earlier in a Telegram chat group.

A woman was pushed to the ground by one of the men, and the police are now seeking the identities of those involved in the incident.

On Monday, the State Council's Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office held a press conference, condemning the protesters as having committed "evil and criminal acts".

Semi-autonomous Hong Kong has endured more than seven weeks of unrest that began with a government bid to introduce a law that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.

Furious at the riot police for attacking and injuring young protesters, the woman charged ahead, yelling - as a Facebook user translated - "Come and get me, I am not scared of you".

A man holds up a USA flag in front of a rally organized by Hong Kong mothers in support of extradition law protesters, in Hong Kong, July 5.

Hong Kong has hosted PLA troops since the territory's 1997 handover from Britain to Beijing.

"The rule of law is what the people of Hong Kong are proud of". Slogans on the wall read "released the righteous [protesters]" and "retract [extradition bill]".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declined to offer what the USA response would be to such a scenario when asked Monday at the Economic Club of Washington, D.C., but said that "protest is appropriate" in both Hong Kong and Washington.

"I am protesting today because Hong Kong is not China", Dave Lai, who was waving a colonial flag he bought on Facebook, told AFP at a recent rally.

'What is happening in Hong Kong is no longer the airing of real or imagined grievances, ' the editorial said.

Back then, the movement was focused on the right to universal suffrage, a fair and transparent electoral system, and ultimately an open democratic process.

The House has passed its version of the NDAA on July 12, but it does not include the Hong Kong provisions.

"Beijing is dead-set against establishment of an independent commission of inquiry".

It offers legal fees, medical fees and even living expenses for those who have been affected due to their involvement in the protests, said one of the fund's trustees and popstar Denise Ho. Some threw eggs at the building, while police used pepper spray to try to disperse them.

An arrest warrant was issued for a 44th person charged with rioting who did not appear before the packed courtroom and a 45th person was charged with possession of an offensive weapon. "The central government supports the relevant government departments and police to protect the rule of law, ' he said, adding that 'radical protesters" caused more than 20 injuries, including an officer who had his finger bitten off.

She said 26 trade unions have indicated that they will join the strikes.

"Many people think I'm humiliating the Chinese Communist Party, holding up the United Kingdom flag", she said, with a grin.
