Are you suggesting that their actions are futile Redemption?

There was a stronger message sent overnight with elections showing dissatisfaction of the govt. No burning looting or shooting police necessary, just a loud clear message through the ballot box.

Not that that will make any difference either. China wants their property back. Britain signed it back to them in good faith and they agreed to a 50 year transition which will come to pass.

Being a bit tough PT. You cant really blame the protesters. Would you want to be told that the Chinese government were going to be running Australia in a few years ? A few of your mates up that way would be in for a rude awakening.
Time to get a bit fair dinkum

Hey oneone, if you were renting a house to some people and you sent a notice you wanted them to vacate when their lease was up, you would be sympathetic to them burning and destroying your house and refusing to leave.

OK. I believe that Embarrassed

So anyone that protests Communism, is an Anarchist?
LOL. 
You truly are a defiant full fledged dedicated Communist.

Your Emperor,, Chairman Mao, killed 40 million people.
Such a noble system. That sounds like something even worse than Anarchy.

How many ballot boxes in China PT?

Clive James dead.

"Ding dong the Communist mason is dead, really dead, truly dead. Ding dong the Communist mason is dead"

His evil sense of humour made fun of countries suffering at the hands of his intellectual masters, but he was too full of himself to ever realise who was pulling his strings.

PT, no doubt a fan of his. One of your mob has departed.

Those Americans (mostly illegals) who might consider supporting the corrupt, lying Democrats should pay attention to the people of Hong Kong, and understand that what they are afraid of is exactly what the Democrats are threatening to deliver if they ever get the chance ...

Please take time to read this.

This is the VERY reason, the world MUST support Hong Kong.
This is WHY Australia MUST reject, the true filth of what is Communist China.

May Hong Kong citizens prevail.

Communist China is absolute scum of the earth

Nice place PT.

I keep hearing the protest spokespersons run this narrative - unchallenged of course by the journosAngry - we were peace loving non-violent boys and girls for many months of this movement until we were finally driven to violence by the monstrous cruelty of the police.

Huh? Shocked I had to go back to page 1 of this to refresh my memory - no, they were vicious little thugs from day one. In fact I was amazed at the self-control and tolerance of the police while they were being pelted with bricks and molotov cocktails. If you want to see police violence go to Iraq, brats.

PT, what do you think of China's facial recognition technology used on mass?
Do you support that, or fundamentally oppose it

I use facial recognition on my iphone and have no doubt that plenty have access to it, so I am agnostic to it. Anyone who wants to can also track my every movement and see what I am doing through the phone's camera and microphone. 

Staying anonymous and under the radar is long gone Redemption.

Just came back from Hong Kong. I feel sorry for the people who will have to deal with change when the full handover back to China takes place in 35 or 40 years time. Truth is through it was a leasing agreement between China and England as PT has pointed out.

Most of the protest activity was on the weekends and in most cases it was none violent. Sadly there are some that are going around putting graffiti on things, smashing traffic lights and CCT cameras and in general trashing their own city. 

The economy is slowing down and no one is really travelling there now because of the protests.
