World tensely watches China as protests erupt in Hong Kong


DAVID: THE PROTESTS ARE EXPECTED TO GROW DURING THE WEEKEND. THERE WAS SPECULATION CHINA WAS PLANNING TO DECLARE MARTIAL LAW AS THE GOVERNMENT TAKES THIS RESISTANCE FROM WITHIN. CHRISTIAN WHAT ARE YOU HEAR BEING THIS RUMOR ABOUT MARTIAL LAW.>>THERE ARE RUMORS THAT BEIJING IS NOT GOING TO LET WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE SLIDE. THAT’S NOT DETERRING THE PROTESTERS. THEY REAL.>>I THIS IS A LAST CHANCE, A LAST STAND. BUT AS FOR A MOVE TOWARD MARTIAL LAW AND INVASION BY THE LIBERATION ARMY, I THINK THAT’S A LITTLE MORE REMOST OF. BUT A HYBRID INVASION OF THE PUBLIC SECURITY BUREAU, THE POLICE WOULD ROUND UP THE MORE ACTIVE PROTESTERS AND ORGANIZERS. THAT WOULD BE VERY HIGH RISK FOR BEIJING, BUT A POSSIBILITY.>>CHRISTIAN, THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT YANKED THE EXTRADITION TREATY, THAT WAS THE INITIAL SPARK FOR THE PROTESTS. WHAT’S THE END GAME? CHINA IS NOT GOING TO INVADE HONG KONG. THEY WANT MORE PROTECTION THAN WHAT HAD BEEN IN PLACE. ISN’T THIS LIKE THE PROTEST IN FRANCE, PROTESTING WITHOUT WHAT A CLEAR SENSIBLE OUTCOME COULD BE?>>IT’S INTERESTING. IT’S A NEW COLLECTION OF LEADERS. SOME OF THE DEMAND ARE VARYING. EVEN THOUGH THE EXTRADITION TREATY HAS BEEN PUSHED TO THE SIDE, THERE ARE OTHERS WHO WANT THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE TO RESIGN FOR HER ROLE IN WHAT’S GOING ON. QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT THE POLICE HAVE DONE. DEMAND THAT SOME OF THE PROTEST LEADERS IN JAIL ALONG WITH ORDINARY CITIZENS, AIRLINE PILOTS, INCLUDED, SHOULD BE LET OUT OF PRISON. I THINK THIS WILL GO IN THE DIRECTION BEIJING NEED TO FULFILL THE PROMISES THAT INCLUDE UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE. ESSENTIALLY REAL DEMOCRACY IN HONG KONG INSTEAD OF HALF DEMOCRACY. AND RESTORATION OF THE AUTONOMY PROMISED HONG KONG.>>IS CHINA PUSHED INTO THE CORNER, NOT ALLOWED TO BE THE CHINA THEY WERE THE LAST FEW YEARS? ARE THEY OVERREACTING? OR ARE THE PEOPLE BEGINNING TO PROTEST TO GET CHINA TO CHANGE THEIR BEHAVIOR?>>THE IMPLICATION IS RIGHT THAT IT’S RELATED. XI JINPING’S POWER HAS BEEN. XI JINPING ESSENTIALLY CROWNED HIMSELF EMPEROR AT THE 2017 PARTY CONGRESS THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO LEAD TO GREAT NEW LEVELS WITH CHINA. BUT THE ECONOMY IS DOWN AND HE BOTCHED THE TRADE WAR. THIS IN HONG KONG HAS FURTHER BOTCHED HIS POWER. IT’S EASY TO VIEW THESE THINGS AS SEPARATE, BUT I THINK IT ALL COMES TOGETHER. DIERDRE: IF CIVIL SERVANTS STRIKE OBJECT MONDAY AS THEY ARE THREATENING TO DO, IS THE GOVERNMENT GOING TO CLAMP DOWN? ARE YOU HEARING ANYTHING ALONG THOSE LINES?>>THAT IS WHAT PROMPTED THE GENESIS OF TONIGHT’S PROTESTS. CIVIL SERVICE GETTING TOGETHER. UPSET THAT THEY WERE TOLD TO SHUT UP. THESE ARE RISK AVERSE PEOPLE. THESE AREN’T YOUNG STUDENTS WHO ARE GENERALLY MORE AGGRESSIVE. THEN THEY WERE JOINED BY HONG KONG CITIZENS. AND THERE WILL BE A PROTEST ACROSS THE HARBOR. EVEN BANKERS ARE JOINING INTO THIS PROCESS. FOR A I THAT HAS NO SOUL AND IS FOCUSED ON MAKING MONEY, THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT SURE FOOTED BECAUSE IT HAD TO BREAK DOWN ONCE AND IT DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE TO DO THAT AGAIN. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE

  1. Execute the Vietnamese Spy "Jashua Wong" , his real name is Jashua Tran. Both his father and grand father is from Saigon! We don't want Vietnamese here! What do you do to Foreign agents in your country?

  2. US ppl supports this by contributing their tax to the congress and … NED. Know where your tax money goes? Here it is! Enjoy!

  3. Every act of violence has a systemic effect that reverberates through the entire universe for all eternity. Looks like it finally catching up to China

  4. HK Chinese know EXACTLY the terrible nature of the Chinese Communists and well they should be frightened of these barbaric organ harvesters in Beijing.

  5. Mr president please stop being trade partners with any commies already. All there is is pointless trade wars and tensions that shouldn’t be there.

  6. thank god. praying for the chinese people – let freedom ring!!!!! how dare the chinese government mess with america.

  7. The citizens of China are in my prayers…God Bless All of you… 😇🙏❤💪🌍🇺🇸 WWG1WGA Trump 2Q2Q To KAG! & The World…Abolish Commies! 👺🔥💀

  8. Just visited the cities where I lived in China , almost of all the people I met spoke highly of the central government and President Xi from their bottom of heart. Especially the people who had travelled or studied overseas for some time. They viewed ,compared and concluded independently. The majority believed the western system is not right for China. China has found a right way for itself. Chinese are harvesting the balanced benefit of freedom and prosperity. China is progressing in all the respects . China has a good governing leadership that many countires don't have.

  9. Pray for them, after all this is over Chinese government will arrest them one by one privately. They have cameras everywhere

  10. This is so rich. The whole world is pulling for Hong Kong. The whole world hates the CCP, and the so-called "People's Liberation Army" (who killed the students in Tiananmen Square), and they can't figure out why they are not loved and respected. It's because the communist Chinese are liars and murderers. The CCP doesn't have a friend in the world. All of their neighbors hate them: Japan, South Korea, Philippines, India, Thailand, VietNam. This is so rich. God has cursed China for killing and harvesting organs of the Falun Gang, imprisoning the Uighirs, and for tearing down churches and persecuting the Christians.

  11. We Chinese are also very nervous about Hong Kong.We are worried that they will split Hong Kong out of China.Good luck to Hong Kong, good luck to China.

  12. The Chinese suggests that the CIA and MI6 etc etc be kicked out of HK and not to interfere, fanning the flames.

  13. Like Trump said, CIA FOX SUCKS! Double standard! UK if you wanna HK, COME AND TAKE IT, DONT JUST ONLY BARK…

  14. More than 20 years, Hong Kong was returned to China, but HK people has seen distantly themselves from China. The democracy, the liberty and justice in HK can not mix with the totalitarian regime in China, that are the reasons the Hong Kong people protests against the new bill.

  15. The Hong Kong Youth Peace Parade is just a tool for you to cover up the riots. Participating in riots is an anti-social thug! thug! Don't act! nausea!

  16. LOL, the hypocrisy is mind blowing. JUST watch when ANTIFA start doing the same on US CITIES streets. WE don't think TRUMP will sit idly and tweeting here and there.

  17. ANTIFA should do like this and when TRUMP orders the National Guards to restore laws and order then it's Chinese turn to say USA violates human rights and being oppresive to "peaceful" civilians.

  18. Lets watch socialism fail in China, maybe some of our radical left will wake up. Don't give up the fight HONG KONG!!! stay 💪.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  19. Don’t worry,Hongkong police will settle it,just give these idiots a little more time to play.Seems one China one system is the only way to make everybody happy.

  20. American friends, please don't forget the Civil War, don't forget 911. The Chinese people love peace.The American people also love peace.

  21. And this is what demacrats want for us socialism communistic country you people better wake up its a bad thing when a countr wanting freedom waves our flag you sheep better wake up God Bless America and President Trump

  22. China wants HK to rot to better control HK. HK will be dependent on China and will have to beg China. The HK people have had enough and are standing up for their rights and to preserve their way of life.
    China is a big bully. Xi Jinping is a mental case and is unfit for office. He calls the Dalai Lama a dangerous separatist. UK does not classify Nicola Sturgeon of Scotland a dangerous separatist for demanding Scottish independence. Scotland voted No in the independence voting. Quebec voted No to the independence voting in Canada. Why does China insist on crushing autonomy for HK? China govt has gone mental.

  23. Looks like China is moving more toward Freedom and Democrat Leftists in America are moving more toward Communism ….who would have thought….

  24. Its turned out that most people commented below is not educated. They only hear one voice, one side. They said socialistic China balabala bad. However, this country become huge power country and the only one country has ability against US. Americans still cannot handle the trade war and are little scared of China. 🤔️ All the countries except US just want to join China’s “ friend’s cycle “, because they’re eager to get help from China to save their own economy”. People in China has not bad life. We’re peace in mainland because of the political system. They have freedom, happiness, money and comfortable life. This is social reality. Those stupid mob Hongkongers are really crazy about destroying the society and reputation of Hong Kong because this is what they called freedom from capitalism. Citizens in mainland China just watching the drama made by those crowd garbages during in spare time. The political system make Mainland China wealthy. We’re not traditional wealthy country like western, but finally we make it and become powerful, but western countries are not as good as before compared with China.

  25. Stupid Hong Kong people's doesn't know what they're doing. I am from hk and I am not support them. Hong Kong is part of China not UK

  26. You know China is in big trouble when its Chinese citizens are waiving the American flag and throwing the Chinese flag into the harbor.

  27. 香港人应该明白,你们面对的是中共邪教,对付邪教别带有一丝幻想,只有拿起枪,不择手段的反抗才能达到目的!中国老百姓从来不相信中共邪教,只是共军有枪

  28. Trump called it Riots lol. HKer will pay for this eventually. It's suicidal. Bunch of cowards why don't you charge in PLA military base?There will be severe consequence aftermath for those losers thugs.

  29. China is trying to tell the whole world that they are invincible on everything and that the future FOR HUMANITY is China

  30. China can steal anything lands, oceans, intellectual PROPERTY value at trillions and trillions of dollars and no one person or country can stop them.

  31. China will employ millions and millions of people just to control everything around the world because soon even MEXICO, Australia, Canada, Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan, Russia, Africa continent, Argentina, Malaysia,Thailand, Spain, Greece,Germany, GRELANNDIA, Chile, Panama,Turkey, VENEZUELA, Tibet,Xinjiang,north Korea ,Bolivia, Portugal, ITALY, Norway, Nicaragua, Myanmar, Pakistan,Cambodia, Egypt,Philippines, new Zealand, Europe 100%,JAMAICA, etc. etc. they are going to be against China practices and all over the world including USA and the moon are going to do want Hong Kong is doing but many countries will use every single ARMS TO GET RID OF COMMUNISM CHINA NIGHTMARE THAT WE'RE LIVING.

  32. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS HAPPENING:

    Hong Kong is a safe place, protected by the law. People are demonstrating because the government tries to pass a law of China extradition. Which means you can get arrested in Hong Kong by China even if you've never physically stepped foot in China. China recently sentenced someone 10-year jail just because she uploaded some homosexual comics, not to mention thousands of mysteriously disappearing persons who've said things the Chinese government disliked.

    I don't care whether you are American, British or whatever.Hong Kongers are doing this for YOUR, and OUR future safety by upholding their legal firewall against China.

    Ever since the British's lease of Hong Kong as her colony ended in 1997 it's been returned to China, under the full name of "Hong Kong special administrative region". As the name suggests, Hong Kong is a unique place as it follows the model of a typical western societies, i.e. separation of legislature, executive and judiciary powers. This is obviously very much unlike China, of which everybody knows that the 3 powers are pretty much muddled together so that the government can basically do whatever it wants, and where the press is more like a propaganda tool instead of a public informant.

    The Chinese have their own law. Hong Kong uses the Basic Law, which was mutually agreed amongst the British and Chinese in 1984. The problem is, these laws can be amended and the Chinese have the ultimate authority to interpret the law in their way when there are disputes. So while the Basic Law protects Hong Kongers from human rights violations, it is still not bullet proof, as seen in what leads to today's demonstration.

    Hong Kongers run things very differently. They speak Cantonese and the Chinese speak Mandarin, they use traditional Chinese characters while the Chinese use simplified, they are FAR more exposed to western culture while the Chinese censor things. Hong Kongers have unfiltered internet, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, different currencies …

    So politically, socially and culturally Hong Kongers are very different, even polarised, despite looking quite similar in foreigners' eyes.

  33. hope it won't be like syria.come to think of it,you are getting more violent and that makes hk government weaker and for that you are giving china easier and faster way to take over hk.hope u can find a peaceful way to solve the issue and at the same time you are supporting the govt.

  34. Why watch China? They got nothing to do with us. Some of us are just happy that they have finally put on a spectacular show as we haven't seen a good show in a long time from Hongkong since the fall of Hongkong's entertainment industry. I just hope there is gonna be a season 2 and many many seasons to come. After all, the we only keep Hongkong to keep us entertained are we not.

  35. We should never have free and open trade with China until their people are also free and open to the world.

  36. Free Hongkong…. free Taiwan…. China is a bully….

    Hongkong does not belong to China, Britain nor U.S… Hongkong belongs to the people of Hongkong…. the Hongkongers….therefore, Hongkong should be an independent country..

  37. I like how many Americans get involved with countries like china, pretending as if they care and have any idea of why Hong Kong is acting the way it is. I also have no idea but I would rather have a peaceful country than protesters

  38. Good I hope everyone starves. The wrath of God is upon all of you traders, gready mother f ers. The white man has been the biggest trader of all. Thank God Trump has some sense.

  39. Peaceful protest by Hong Kong wish the African american community would watch this instead of destroying neighborhoods

  40. Liberals Are The Real Fascists Islamists And Most Of all the real Communists They Say They give equality and hope but instead do they give you no freedom

  41. 一群废青,老子都看到这群贱屌贴八国联军国旗了,总有把他们关教育营的一天!

  42. If the people of HK decide to emigrate, Twin Cities MN needs some really good Cantonese restaurants and dim sums places.

  43. China's ruler for life will shut it down. The govt is trying to be reasonable. Martial law will settle things down.

  44. China could potentially do in Hong Kong what it did in Tibet.

    China could encourage and support (with special incentives and programs) a massive migration of Chinese from other parts of mainland China to Hong Kong.
    China has the population size to do this.
    Such a move would reduce the current population of Hong Kong to a minority status, with the new arrivals becoming the majority and suppressing or even intimidating the new minority into ending protests as a means of expressing discontent.

    Many Chinese from other parts of mainland China are more interested in making money than protesting to support democracy.
    It is the sad truth.
