    most of the video is correct, except the 'leaving alone' part. Since the the lease expired and china used 'one china two system' to take over hongkong and macau, the both cities take a lot of policy privileges, like the financial crisis in 2008, Hongkong didn't suffer a lot like other countries with free market, because mainland china provided so many efforts and resources. The mainland China did this since the financial service is one of the key industries in Hongkong. Also, all electricity in Hong Kong comes from shenzhen, daya bay nuclear power plant. Hongkongers enjoy financial support and infrustructure previlege from mainland. not really 'leaving alone'.

      Even if they succeed, they'll be a small independent city-state with no support. JSDF is going to shag their asscheecks again for sure. Their best hope is to join Taiwan but I don't think the "patriots" will agree to that

      Unfortunately the Chief Executive of Hong Kong is loyal to Beijing's interests more than those of Hong Kong, and the PRC's mainland troops have just moved in.

    first of all, 95% of macaunese don't speak Portugal but cantonese. cantonese is also Chinese, just like mandarin, which is a local dialect of Chinese. mandarin is based on Beijing's dialect, and cantonese is based on Guangdong's dialect. I am from Guangzhou, the capital city of Guangdong province, which is only 200 kilometers to Hong Kong I can also speak cantonese.

      @Abhishek Indoria So could you tell me why we Chinese and the hong kong people who think they are Chinese should give our land to these protestors?

    • Abhishek Indoria
      Abhishek Indoria 16 days ago

      ​@trip road That's a gross micharacterization. First of all, No one's asking for HK to be part of UK, simply independence would do from PRC's authoritarian rule.
      Secondly, if country x controlled part y for 100 years, part y is obviously more influenced by country x than its former masters, so yeah, you can make that argument that it'd be ok.

    The dictatorship of China is no longer interested in waiting another 25 years before spreading their tyranny to these de-facto city-states, and while I personally think that they are currently refraining from doing anything drastic until next year's Hong Kong elections, planning on using the corruption that is now inherent within most of the Pro-Bejing parties to allow said faction to remain in power for as long as China requires for whatever nefarious plans that China has to work, if the Pro-Democracy faction actually manages to come out on top instead, I'm not entirely sure what will happen, just that it won't be good.
