    now I skimmed over the article linked below; it sounded like lawyers-to-layers type of stuff
    https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong...ong-protesters-launch-series-legal-challenges Hong Kong protesters launch series of legal challenges and ask city’s judges to remove riot label from early clashes with police
    • Civil Human Rights Front leader Jimmy Sham and protester Yeung Kwok-ming want use of tear gas on June 12 declared unconstitutional
    • Teacher Yeung Tsz-chun also files judicial challenge over elite officers’ failure to display identification numbers

    Why would they leave Vancouver for Australia because of Hong Kong?


    Good riddance!

    Just like the pre 1997 years. Hopefully this time they stay abroad. Don't come crawling back

    That article was a garbage dump of misinformation. It attempts to push the narrative that people are leaving HK because of the extradition bill, when in truth they are leaving because of the riots!

    How about internships? Let some of the young Hong Kongers work on the mainland for a year. (I'm new to this thread and have not read it all; apologies if the idea has been discussed already.)

    One of Hong Kong's fundamental problems is the brainwashing of its young people. They live in a very tightly sealed media environment that is overwhelmingly dominated by Western mind mashers. So the solution is to open the environment: let the youngsters experience mainland life for a year or so.

    If the pay is good, they will go. If the pay is good enough, that will also help their economic problems.

    When they return to Hong Kong, the youngsters will be more reluctant to call mainlanders "locusts".

    If the intership program is large enough, its effects would be quite fast.

    It will be hard, most Hong kongers lack the linguistic ability, ie mandarin and simplified chinese, to work in the mainland. There is also plenty of talent that is equal or better that companies can pay less for in the mainland, so why bother.
