Hong Kong protests: Christmas sees no halt in clashes

 

Christmas Day in Hong Kong has seen no let-up in clashes between police and pro-democracy protesters.

 

The police used tear gas and pepper spray as demonstrators gathered again in a number of shopping districts.

 

The latest protests began on Christmas Eve, with police battling activists who were throwing petrol bombs.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said many residents and tourists had seen their Christmas celebrations "ruined by a group of reckless and selfish rioters".

 

"Such illegal acts have not only dampened the festive mood but also adversely affected local businesses," she said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

 

The protests began in June, focusing on a bill that would have allowed the extradition of suspects to mainland China.

 

The bill was later withdrawn, but demonstrations have since evolved into a broader movement demanding investigations into police brutality and democratic reform.

That really doesn’t appear to even address the majority of the OAS findings in their report.  http://www.oas.org/fpdb/press/Audit-Report-EN-vFINAL.pdf

Re:  Hong Kong:

 

Taiwan considers revoking Hong Kong's special status on law fears

 

TAIPEI (Reuters) - China’s planned national security law may prompt Taiwan to revoke the special status it extends to Hong Kong, President Tsai Ing-wen said, a move that could anger Beijing and make it harder for Hong Kongers to visit and invest.

 

China is proposing the new legislation for the Chinese-ruled city after months of anti-government protests, and the decision has already ignited renewed unrest in Hong Kong and prompted condemnation from Western capitals.

 

The demonstrators have won widespread sympathy in democratic Taiwan, and the support for the protesters by Tsai and her administration has worsened already poor ties between Taipei and Beijing.

 

China has repeatedly denounced Taiwan’s government for supporting the protesters, and accused activists in both places of colluding to plot independence.
