Hong Kong Protests Continue August 23, 2019

Hong Kong is braced for its 12th week of consecutive protests as the violence of police escalates

and protestors respond by attacking police stations and police living quarters. Chief executive Carrie Lam

has disappeared from public view and seems to have been effectively sidelined.

Beijing has stepped in, labelling protesters as ‘violent criminals’, and massing troops on

the border of Hong Kong where they conduct anti-riot drills. Entering Hong Kong militarily

would mark the end of Hong Kong as an international financial hub and President Xi has

little room for compromise. Protesters understand his position  and are prepared for a

continuation of the war of attrition that has erupted amongst the political tensions that

Carrie Lam has unleashed.
