While it is true that one person was shot in the chest at a different incident, it remains that this i only a small, although regrettable, part of the toll. Most of it has been suffered by opponents of this movement, of which there are many in Hongkong.
There is ample evidence that these protests have been funded and supported by the US administration, recruiting a section of Hongkong society, previously associated with and benefiting from the former British colonial establishment.
Differences in the economic fortunes between mainland China have been exploited. As the fortunes of the former grow, the Hongkong economy has been declining. This is the result of the “one nation two systems” agreement that was a precondition for the British leaving.
The spectacle of protesters carrying photos of Donald Trump, parading American flags and calling for a foreign invasion of Hongkong should be no surprise. Nor should the violent methods applied.
Hongkong’s protests have coincided with the new aggressivesnes of US foreign policy and the trade war being waged against China.
Although good people have for the time being been misled by the slogans, the undeniable reality is starting to show itself.
