This link provides a lot of videos of this past weekend’s protests in Hong Kong, all of which suggest that the protesters are responding to the police’s harsher enforcement with their own harsher actions.

It also appears that the protests began with a peaceful march of tens of thousands, and only became violent when the police tried to shut the protest down.

    The mainland government will, in all likelihood, resort to more lethal measures: IMHO.

    The world will react but nothing will change except democracy will be stifled.

    I hope not, but it is the only way power has been held historically.

    Phill O:
    Your humble opinion is absolutely correct; the Chi-com’s will resort to more lethal measures. It’s what they do.
