I am another not worrying HKers. The press and media are trying to stir things up and out words in our mouth! We not worried. In fact quite chuffed. Protest is a fundamental right and a key aspect of democracy. With out, true freedom is impossible but sorry, you were parroting the state media of an oppressive regime. US gov are doing their national security law to those unarmed protesters, so China can learn it from US gov. It’s ok. Not only HK all democracies should worry. Because this shows the attitude of China towards democracies.
The sweet hope that HK will gradually transform mainland China into a democratic nation doesn’t seem to become a realistic any soon. I guess it won’t and it shouldn’t. The people from Hong Kong are worried because they have been living in a democratic regime free and now China will be ruling Hong Kong in a Communistic regime. I truly do not understand the Chinese government’s position on Hong Kong. The government should be looking into ways for deadly infection diseases to not escape their borders and cause a pandemic.
