    in a kind of fallout of the protests
    Carrie Lam says Hong Kong capitalism can only survive beyond 2047 if ‘one country, two systems’ is fully respected
    • Chief executive warns Hongkongers of the consequences of attacking the way city is governed
    • Lawmakers thrown out of chamber after Lam is heckled during her first Legislative Council question and answer session of the year

    Still lots of turmoil in my home city. It's a shame that it had to come to this. I don't see it being realistic for things to change. It's only a matter of a Generation before Hong Kong flows Red & Yellow.

    I'm glad my parents moved me when they got the chance. I am free. They are not. It's as simple as that.

    The headline of that article is yet another mischaracterization and confuscation of Hong Kong protest reasons in the English language and Western media. Protesters, protest organizers, and supporters for protests have openly and repeatedly stated their various racist, anti-free trade, and ideological reasons for protest which are commonly ignored and covered up with inaccurate labels of "democracy" or "universal suffrage" instead. The protest in Hong Kong this time is primarily ideological as per its self-proclaimed title “Universal Siege Against Communism”.
