Hong Kong protesters have a new target—the Chinese Communist Party. After over 100 days of protest, protesters have shifted their focus from the Hong Kong government and Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, to Beijing, Xi Jinping, and the Chinese Communist Party itself. This weekend was the Global Anti-Totalitarianism March and the 5 year anniversary of the 2014 Umbrella Movement. And Hong Kong police met protesters with excessive force and tear gas. And we were there for it all. Literally, we got tear gassed for this episode.

Hong Kong prepares for massive showdown on Chinese anniversary

UPI

30 Sep 20190

HONG KONG, Sept. 30 (UPI) — As China prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary on Tuesday, Hong Kong is bracing for what may be one of the largest showdowns yet in nearly four months of clashes between demonstrators and police.

Activists on Monday warned that China will be desperate to clamp down on dissent on as it celebrates its National Day with a massive parade and show of military might in Beijing.

At a briefing with reporters, members of an activist group called the Citizens Press Conference said Tuesday’s anti-China protests will be a “milestone” in the movement and acknowledged they are bracing for a violent crackdown by authorities.

“[The authorities] have one single goal, of bullying Hong Kongers into silence,” said a spokesman for the Citizens Press Conference, who remained anonymous behind a mask and helmet.

Police Clash with Protesters in Hong Kong before October 1st Flashpoint August 29th saw some of the most violent clashes between police and protesters in Hong Kong so far. Just two days ahead of the National Day of the People's Republic of China, protesters battled police in the street, throwing bricks, rocks, molotov cocktails, and other projectiles. Police fired tear gas, pepper balls, and water cannons at the protesters, but these were no ordinary water cannons.

The Butchers of Beijing celebrate 70 years of communist tyranny by shooting a student marching for freedom in Hong Kong. What a sadly appropriate way to mark a dark, lamentable anniversary.

Hong Kong protests over 'authoritarian' mask ban quickly turn violent, teenage boy shot by police

Oct. 4 2019

Hong Kong police have shot and wounded a teenage boy, as violent protests erupted across the Chinese-ruled city hours after its embattled leader Carrie Lam invoked colonial-era emergency powers last used more than 50 years ago.

Ms Lam used the city's Emergency Regulations Ordinances — a sweeping provision that grants her the ability to bypass the legislature and make any law during a time of emergency or public danger — to ban protesters from wearing masks.

"We believe that the new law will create a deterrent effect against masked violent protesters and rioters, and will assist the police in its law enforcement," Ms Lam said. "We must stop the violence."

Ms Lam announced the measure on Friday night as thousands of masked protesters crammed streets in the central business district and staged demonstrations in other areas, shouting "Hong Kong people, resist!"

They set fires and vandalised subway stations, prompting police to respond with tear gas.

Hong Kong is starting to recover Sunday, the day after the city went into near shutdown with banks and businesses closed, and rail services suspended for the first time in more than 20 years after violent protests caused what Chief Executive Carrie Lam described as a “very dark day.”The rail operator will resume part of its services Sunday, though some of its most popular train stations including Admiralty, Mong Kok and Causeway Bay, in the heart of its shopping district, remain closed.

A 14-year-old boy was shot and injured Friday night, the second shooting of the week, during a scuffle between a plain-clothes police officer and demonstrators who had attacked his car. The chaotic scene was one of many across the city, as some protesters battled with police, vandalized mainland-linked businesses and train stations, and set fire to at least one train.

Hong Kong police have dealt with protesters with increasing aggression. Its drawn international condemnation. What lead to it? Are the protesters to blame? Or is this a natural evolution of the Hong Kong protest movement?
