The police siege of PolyTechnic University in Hong Kong appears to be finished when a nearby cross-harbor tunnel has been opened for traffic.
The key transport link reopened on Wednesday after removal of over 42 tonnes of debris, when it had been blocked since November 13 by anti-government protesters amid a dramatic escalation of violence in nearly six months.
Hong Kong seems more subdued this week when the pro-democracy camp won a landslide victory in the district council elections. An unprecedented 71% of voters turned out to cast their ballots that gave stunning 387 seats out of the 452 to the pro-democracy groups.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam acknowledged public discontent at a press briefing but told that Beijing did not hold her accountable for the election result.
Expressing the will of many, one Hong Kong newspaper, Sing Pao, published a front-page spread for the second successive day calling for Carrie Lam’s resignation. “Hong Kong people have had enough, Carrie Lam quit,” the article read.
Reuters reported that China’s leaders had set up a crisis command centre in the Chinese tech hub of Shenzhen, just across the border from Hong Kong, to deal with protests that have become the biggest populist challenge since President Xi Jinping came to power in 2012.
Hong Kong police have received more than 1,200 complaints over their handling of the anti-government protests, according to the city’s security secretary John Lee Ka-chiu, but so far none of the officers has been disciplined.
Whether Carrie Lam leaves sooner or later, her name will be listed on the Bill of Sanctions when the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act comes into force, together with top police officers and other CCP officials who have done evil in the troubled territory.
Ludepress said today President Donald Trump is not delaying in signing his name into the bill; instead, he is busy forming a special team for the implementation of the bill with more concrete measures.
Military analyst Bill Getz who, in his latest book “Deceiving the Sky Across the Ocean”, to reveal the threats of the CCP, joined CCP killer Guo Wengui in his live broadcast. According to Bill, he just had an interview with the National Security Adviser Robert O’brien who assured him of all measures being ready on the table to deal with emergencies as a result of possible military intervention by the CCP in Hong Kong.
Bill remarks, “I asked him about the situation in Hong Kong. And he was very strong, basically saying that the U.S. stands with the people of Hong Kong. President Trump has said this as well. Right now we are seeing an unfolding drama between the White House and the Congress over whether the President will sign the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which the Congress passed unanimously. The words I hear from senior officials in the government is that the President will find some way of getting this passed, but he’s also trying to preserve his options to do a partial trade deal with China. So he is trying to play the middle ground, but his heart is with Hong Kong democracy protesters and supporting them. Also we in the recent elections that this was a huge setback for the Communist Party of China. All the pro-Beijing parties lost many seats. This shows that protests are not just about people on the streets, but they are about people voting in the ballot box in support of democracy. Many of the China experts I talked to believe that what we are seeing in Hong Kong today is the beginning stages of the disintegration of the Communist Party of China.”
Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said earlier today in his press conference, “The (Trump) administration has been pretty clear about our expectations about how Beijing will treat people throughout their country. ” Pompeo further slams Beijing’s violations in Hong Kong and Xinjiang.
General Secretary Xi Jinping presided over the 11th meeting of the central committee for deepening overall reform Tuesday.
Nothing new to say, Xi has urged reform efforts to focus on upholding and improving the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics and modernizing China’s system and capacity for governance.
With the democratic victory in Hong Kong, the CCP leaders are like ants on a heated wok under pressure from both domestic and international condemnations.
Guo Wengui told that the key focus in Hong Kong relates to “how the thousands of kids were killed or made disappeared; many protesters were transported by train into the mainland, where are they? Many young girls were raped, sexually assaulted, who has done that?” Guo said the Hong Kong crisis is far from over; there will be more difficult times ahead.
Guo Wengui said in his live broadcast today, “According to an official document released from within the CCP leadership, Xi Jinping behaves like sitting on pins and needles these days.”
Everything is just beginning.
