Hong Kong Protests

Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

That’s probably next step, if they now follow the book, the mark can also be smack in the forehead, third eye ?

Unfortunate incident two days ago in Sham Shui Po, a section of Kowloon known for its huge computer and electronics market. A taxi was caught in a sea of protesters and for some reason accelerated forward and to the left. The crowd did the expected thing, which lasted for an agonizing two minutes or so while a few people tried to shield the elderly driver, who somehow survived and remained conscious. Not posting vid for obvious reasons. I just parsed it quickly.

I think this shows the increasing tension and anger as the violence on both sides inevitably escalates.

Some may find this interesting, a pro Beijing perspective from an American living in the mainland. Nathan Rich's background is worth checking if you want to explore his p.o.v.

He has emerged as a kind of pro-PRC counter-weight to a handful of other Western youtubers living in China, who are married to locals, but gradually increased their criticism of the mainland in the past few years as Xi's administration increased its power, usually leading to their voluntary re-patriation or transfer to another SE Asian country.

In Guangzhou, inside the school where Mao first taught, the Peasant Uprising Museum, there's a kind of memorial to the big wig Communists who were murdered in Shanghai then. There are a few walls with their pictures and a caption on each one that says something like, "Murdered by Kuomingtang in Shanghai 19__."
