"Policeman hospitalized with leg burns; large groups of residents thank officers

Separate protests were held in various parts of Hong Kong on Sunday as the demonstrations entered their ninth week, while large groups of Hong Kong residents visited several police stations over the weekend to express their firm support and respect for the police force.

On Sunday, a radical protestor hit a police officer with a gasoline bomb, and Commissioner of Police Lo Wai-chung later visited the officer, who had been hospitalized for burn wounds on his legs.

A resident surnamed Chan, who visited Kwai Chung Police Station with his wife and son on Saturday, said: "The police have been working really hard to safeguard social order. We came here to show our support." The boy gave the police a handwritten card.

Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, chief executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, visited on Friday the Wong Tai Sin Police Station and dormitory, which had been attacked by radical protesters. Lam thanked the police officers for their hard work to safeguard the Hong Kong public.

The HKSAR government and police condemned the illegal assemblies and said police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.

Protesters who break the law should be brought to justice, the government stressed."

Violent Protests In Hong Kong Reach Their Last Stage


The riots in Hong Kong are about to end.
The protests, as originally started in June, were against a law that would have allowed criminal extraditions to Taiwan, Macao and mainland China. The law was retracted and the large protests have since died down. What is left are a few thousand students who, as advertised in a New York Times op-ed, intentionally seek to provoke the police with "marginal violence":
Such actions are a way to make noise and gain attention. And if they prompt the police to respond with unnecessary force, as happened on June 12, then the public will feel disapproval and disgust for the authorities. The protesters should thoughtfully escalate nonviolence, maybe even resort to mild force, to push the government to the edge. That was the goal of many people who surrounded and barricaded police headquarters for hours on June 21.
The protesters now use the same violent methods that were used in the Maidan protests in the Ukraine. The U.S. seems to hope that China will intervene and create a second Tianamen sceneThat U.S. color revolution attempt failed but was an excellent instrument to demonize China. A repeat in Hong Kong would allow to declare a "clash of civilization" and increase 'western' hostility against China. But while China is prepared to intervene it is unlikely to do the U.S. that favor. Its government expressed its confidence that the local authorities will be able to handle the issue.
There are rumors that some Hong Kong oligarchs were originally behind the protests to prevent their extradition for shady deals they made in China. There may be some truth to that. China's president Xi Jingpin is waging a fierce campaign against corruption and Hong Kong is a target rich environment for fighting that crime.
The former British colony is ruled by a handful of oligarchs who have monopolies in the housing, electricity, trade and transport markets:
The book to read is Land and the Ruling Class in Hong Kong (2010) by Alice Poon, which explains how the lack of competition law created outrageous wealth for the tycoons. It’s a complex subject but the key point is that in Hong Kong all land is leasehold and ultimately owned by the government, which uses it as a means of raising revenue. This goes back to the days of empire when British policy required colonies to be self-funding. The system kept taxes down and attracted business – but one side-effect was that it gave the government an interest in rationing land to keep it expensive. That didn’t matter much when the local economy comprised a few traders but, in the modern technological world of 2012, it puts the government at odds with every person and business wanting affordable space. Indeed, it induces the government to distort and damage the economy, and indeed society.
This system paved the way for a handful of Hong Kong families to become unimaginably wealthy by getting their hands on cheap land back in the days before the city started to boom.

Rents and apartment prices in Hong Kong are high. People from the mainland who buy up apartments with probably illegally gained money only increase the scarcity. This is one reason why the Cantonese speaking Hong Kong protesters spray slurs against the Mandarin speaking people from the mainland. The people in Hong Kong also grieve over their declining importance. Hong Kong lost its once important economical position. In 1993 Hong Kong's share of China's GDP was 27%. It is now less than a tenths of that and the city is now more or less irrelevant to mainland China.........
Democracy in Hong Kong is restricted to further the interests of the oligarchs:

Proteste in Hongkong
https://www.german-foreign-policy.com/news/detail/8011/14.08.2018
HONGKONG/BERLIN/WASHINGTON(Eigener Bericht) - Die Bundesrepublik nutzt die Proteste in Hongkong, um den Rivalen China zu schwächen, und fördert in der Stadt die Beijing-feindliche Opposition. Im Juli, als die Proteste längst eskalierten, ist eine hochrangige FDP-Delegation in Hongkong mit Mitgliedern der oppositionellen "Democratic Party" zusammengetroffen. Aktivisten, die für die Abspaltung Hongkongs von China eintreten und wegen ihrer Beteiligung an Angriffen auf Polizisten angeklagt sind, erhalten in Deutschland Flüchtlingsschutz. Parallel fördert eine Vorfeldorganisation der US-Außenpolitik oppositionelle Zusammenschlüsse mit Millionensummen; US-Vizepräsident Mike Pence empfängt einen Milliardär aus Hongkong, der seit Jahren Beijing-feindliche Kräfte in der Stadt finanziert sowie sie mit seinem Medienunternehmen unterstützt. Die Maßnahmen, die als selbstloser Einsatz für "Demokratie und Menschenrechte" angepriesen werden, nutzen schon lange bestehende innere Spannungen in der ehemaligen britischen Kolonie, um die Kontrolle der Volksrepublik über die ökonomisch wichtige Metropole zu unterminieren.
Zufluchtsort für Kriminelle
Die Proteste in Hongkong sind längst über ihren ursprünglichen Anlass hinausgewachsen. Ende März hatten sie sich an den Plänen der Stadtregierung entzündet, ein neues Auslieferungsgesetz zu verabschieden. Laut der geltenden, noch von der britischen Kolonialmacht vor ihrem Abzug zum 1. Juli 1997 eingeführten Regelung darf Hongkong Personen, die außerhalb der südchinesischen Metropole eine Straftat begangen haben, prinzipiell an die Behörden sämtlicher Länder der Welt überstellen; ausgenommen sind aber die Volksrepublik China, ihre Sonderverwaltungszone Macau und Taiwan.[1] Das hat zur Folge, dass Kriminelle bis hin zu Mördern in Hongkong straflos leben können; die zuständigen Stellen in der Stadtverwaltung sprechen von über 300 gravierenden Fällen, darunter nicht zuletzt der Korruption überführte Milliardäre. Gegen das neue Auslieferungsgesetz gingen am 16. Juni rund zwei Millionen Menschen auf die Straße: Es könne, so wurde befürchtet, die Unabhängigkeit der Hongkonger Justiz unterminieren. Regierungschefin Carrie Lam hat das Gesetzesvorhaben inzwischen für "tot" erklärt. Zu den Folgen, die in Hongkong für Debatten sorgen, gehört, dass ein geständiger Mörder, der am 16. Februar 2018 in Taiwans Hauptstadt Taipei seine Partnerin erwürgte, nicht an die dortige Justiz überstellt werden darf und der Strafe entgeht.
Beijing-feindliche Kräfte
Mittlerweile hat sich der Gegenstand der Proteste jedoch verschoben. Im Zentrum steht nun zum einen die Polizeigewalt. Hongkongs Polizei ist bislang mit Schlagstöcken und Tränengas gegen die Demonstranten vorgegangen, die ihrerseits vermummt, mit Helmen und teilweise mit Gasmasken auf die Straße gehen, Polizisten mit Steinen und Molotow-Cocktails attackieren, bei Polizeiwachen Brände legen und inzwischen bei ihren Protesten sogar mit Laserpointern operieren, die schwere Verbrennungen verursachen und die Sehfähigkeit zerstören können. Anfang Juli kam es zum Sturm auf das Parlament sowie zur Verwüstung des Gebäudes.[2] Die Polizeigewalt wiederum übersteigt bislang nicht das in Westeuropa übliche Niveau.[3] Zum anderen richten sich die Proteste gegen einen stärkeren Einfluss Beijings auf die Sonderverwaltungszone Hongkong, die seit dem Ende der britischen Kolonialherrschaft unter der Formel "Ein Land, zwei Systeme" als liberalkapitalistisches Einsprengsel in der Volksrepublik existiert. In der Bevölkerung der Metropole ist eine gegenüber der Volksrepublik ablehnende Strömung prägend, seit sie Ende der 1940er Jahre zum Zufluchtsort für die Kuomintang wurde, was die Einwohnerzahl binnen weniger Jahre von gut 600.000 auf über zwei Millionen in die Höhe trieb. Allerdings verschieben sich mittlerweile die Kräfte; Beijing-kritische oder -feindliche Parteien erhalten bei Wahlen nicht mehr zwei Drittel, sondern nur noch etwas über die Hälfte der Stimmen, während Beijing-freundliche Parteien inzwischen gut 40 Prozent der Stimmen bekommen.

(....)
Subversive Tradition
Unterstützung für Hongkongs Opposition kommt auch aus Deutschland. Im Juli, als die Proteste längst eskaliert waren, ist eine Delegation der FDP unter Führung des FDP-Vorsitzenden Christian Lindner in Hongkong mit Mitgliedern der oppositionellen Democratic Party zusammengetroffen. Offizieller Anlass der Reise war die Teilnahme der Delegation an der offiziellen Eröffnung des "Global Innovation Hub" am 9. Juli, das die FDP-nahe Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung betreibt. Die Einrichtung wird als "kreative Innovationsplattform für Liberalismus beschrieben.[11] Die Zusammenkunft der FDP-Delegation mit den Oppositionsaktivisten in Hongkong stieß in Beijing auf heftigen Protest.[12] Hintergrund ist, dass die Naumann-Stiftung jahrzehntelang tibetische Separatisten gefördert und weltweit vernetzt hat; unter anderem hat sie die Vorbereitungen für die globale Kampagne unterstützt, mit der im Frühjahr 2008 der olympische Fackellauf anlässlich der Olympiade in Beijing attackiert wurde - in einer Art weltumspannender antichinesischer PR-Operation (german-foreign-policy.com berichtete [13]). Wegen ihrer Unterstützung für tibetische Separatisten musste die Naumann-Stiftung, die auch für ihre Zusammenarbeit mit Putschisten in mehreren Ländern berüchtigt ist (german-foreign-policy.com berichtete [14]), bereits 1996 ihre Repräsentanz in Beijing schließen..............
