    As someone who comes to Hong Kong all the time and is here now, it's a mess here right now. Truly just miss the old days, compared to the crowded streets and mobs of tourists from back then, so many empty stores, folks keeping to themselves in masks, less socializing, protesters running the streets, and as the video has mentioned, all the economic housing crisis and overpriced expensive cost of living. Life really moves fast too fast sometimes.

    went to HK last week for vacation. didn't see protesters. I'm glad. they make their city dirty. their vandals aren't so cute. there's burn marks in some if the pavements. such a very impressive place though. people were so disciplined and coming from a poor country, i wish our country can attain even half of what they have. such a very organized city. biz owner of that pro gov't Starbucks store had it hard from the protesters. i feel sorry for him.

    @S S You are right about some mean tourists that should stay home BUT , BUT I have been living in H.K in 1996 ,97,98 when this situation DID NOT EXIST and I was there working in 2005,2006 when the fall in purchasing power by ordinary people started. The ones I saw & met were H.K. citizens , for sure today there are desperate souls too but in one of the richest cities ( on paper ) social shock absorbers are not working as they should. Its quite too , well a reality x many cities around the world.Your tendency to blame outsiders is the ""propaganda " that works in the mainland but not x me.

Housing prices are booming everywhere in the world, for example here in Paris, yet people don't hate on Paris and still praise it haha meanwhile the bourgeois of upper middle class here are making more and more profit by investing in real estate and the rent price is skyrocketting and people with little money like Students are getting robbed There's no ideal solution

    Thank you for painting us the yellow Chinese in such good lights. It is so good to know that you white people can truly respect yellow Chinese.We have sacrificed a lot in covering ourselves from head to toe all day long, setting people alight, beating up nasty police who treat us with violence, destroying shops who don't agree with us, smashing up atm's, digging up bricks and blocking road ways etc... Without you, we couldn't have achieved what we have achieved so far. So thank you for your continuous support.

    There are lots of news about Hong Kong, but the facts are: Starbucks in HK is run by its franchisee, who went all the way to the United Nations to defame the protesters, and support the dictatorial mainland government. The protest was about what was promised to them before the takeover by the mainland government,it was for a democratic governing body. With all the damages to properties, none of the brand name stores was damaged. The protest was not for money, but having an idealism behind the struggle. There are undercover police agents, and undercover mainland agents involved, and initiating vandalism like breaking store windows, and throwing Molotov cocktails. Looking at the people hospitalized, most of them are protesters, none of the police was reported. Of all the front line caregivers, about 70% sympathize the protesters.

    Lol yeah do that, and it would be the end of them. What can few thousand can do against the might of china's army. . For now they can cry for international help regarding police strong response. they even started the violent protest just to get the worlds attention, it was peaceful at the start but no one seems to care. It look like a regular rally on the street, but still some are sympathizing towards them, but if they do start a war or something, no one can criticize china to responding against armed rebellion with total might. If ever they do something as crazy like that 92 LA riots, the world would forget whats the reason they're upset. We would only see military killing and responding to terror attacks. Then, protest over. They cease to exist.

    Recently, a celebrity who had been suing nuclear power while examining numbers had been killed by the numbers. I found such an article and thought about it. I noticed that the boy (1993-1994) I met at the Yosako-Isoran Festival became a singer and sent a cheering email. I was in a collective stalker because of that deed. Coincidentally, Ikumi Yoshimatsu knew that the boy was currently working under a major entertainment office that had suffered a stalker from Miss International. Nine years. To understand the connection. Probably Cia above. There is Okinawan connection. Golf courses and entertainment offices, before which they connect to the United States. I believe that most threatening people are stupid people who value only their money and their pride, and use the name of the Supreme God to spread their way of thinking from every point of view. Harassment continues. Every time you decide to quit, you'll want to tell if you know that there is a new type of person who will move forward. The behavior of a person with a heart has an effect. 最近、数字について調べていたら脱原発を訴えていた有名人は数字によって殺されていた。そういう記事を見つけて私も考えた。 私はヨサコイソーラン祭りで出会った男の子(1993~1994)の男の子が歌手になってることに気づいて応援メールを送った。私はその行いが原因で集団ストーカーにあった。偶然にも吉松育美、ミスインターナショナルのストーカー被害で出てくる大手の芸能事務所のもとでその男の子は現在働いていると知った。九年になる。つながりを理解するのに。おそらく上はCia。沖縄のつながりがある。ゴルフ場と芸能事務所、その前はアメリカとつながる。 私は脅しをする人達のほとんどがお金や自分のプライドだけ大事にする愚かな人が多いと考えていて、あらゆる視点から考える方法を最高神の名を使って広めている。 嫌がらせはいまだに続いている。やめようと思う度に前に進もうとする新しいタイプの人間が存在することを知るとどうしても伝えたくなる。心のある人の行動は影響する。 h/why=yhwh=360° eddiee55

    Those shops who "stand with" the protests are stupid. People who started this campaign are yellow ribbon xxckers who want the society to stay divided. Those shops who have joined the campaign are constantly being asked to donate money to the protests and to give discounts to protesters, just like who mafia collect "protection fees". Besides, competition is tke key to quality. If political standpoint replaces quality as consumers' standard of choice, it's definitely going to damage the business environment. This video sucks since it doesn't mention such truth.

    China should just eliminate the 1C2S. It’s naive of china to do this. HK has no right to revolt against China. Your support of this so called “pro-democracy” is just a form of domestic terrorism. Try doing what these protesters did in the US and they’ll just get shot in the face. To you, protesters are rioters in the US, but in china, you call them pro-dem peaceful protest. You guys are so two faced hypocrites. I hope NBC is banned in HK by China.
