When Britain handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997, Chinese leaders agreed that Hong Kong would be able to keep its economic and political systems, including some of the civil freedoms denied to China’s citizens on the mainland, for the next 50 years.

Although Hong Kong still has nearly 30 years of semi-autonomy left, China has started tightening its grip, and many believe it is chipping away at Hong Kong’s freedoms. In this episode, I explore how Hong Kong is dealing with the looming deadline and China’s premature moves.

June 4th activity in China had been misunderstood in many ways. Be objective and find more documents to reveal that history in 1989. Most of the uprising activists were the teens just like this Hong Kong “umbrella” activity who are so naive to understand what the politics are. They said hundreds of students were killed in the massacre of Tian An Men in June 4th, but where is evidence? It was the soldiers that were killed by the students during the activity. CCP ordered the troops not to kill any citizens but maintained the safety at Tian An Men square. It was the few part of the activists that wanted to stir up the situation started the chaos. Check the documents of those trouble makers that confessed what they did in the interview of the post June 4th activity, which those kids had already flew away to USA for shelter.
All in all, what comes around goes around. If CCP committed so many crimes that all Chinese hate, China won’t be developed drastically in the recent 30 years, which reflected CCP still leads China to prosperity in a positive way.
If not, the Chinese Civil war would’ve already been broken out and it’s own people will over-throne CCP.
Dontlook back
Regardless of what is being said in the comments or who Hong Kong belongs too, the truth of the matter is that China will take the land back and the opposition is out numbered. Look at the bookstore keepers who were not safe. I just pray and hope the people of Hong Kong will have a peaceful life after and will adjust quickly and maybe in the future there will be a time to speak out and it can be safe to do so in China...

When I see Hong Kong, I think there are many similarities with Korea where I live. When former President Chun Doo-hwan tried to communize South Korea in the
1980s, people protested against communism. During the demonstration, soldiers stabbed people with dagger in their guns, including tear gas, and killed them
using attack helicopters. However,
even in this situation, the Korean people were able to protect democracy, and now our descendants live a life of democracy. Hong Kong should never be communized. Hong Kong should never be part of China.
Hong Kongers can protect democracy just like South Korea if they don't let go of democracy.

基础事实不完全正确,89屠杀是个巨大的谎言,天安门广场没有开枪没有屠杀,冲突发生在天安门广场以外的街区
因果关系倒置,不是中央政府想控制香港导致对抗运动,而是港独分裂运动导致中央政府要控制香港
还有最致命的问题.只有一方的意见,没有另一方的意见.这是个标准的偏见性视频.

When Europe went through its revolutions, many countries refused to honor treaties, saying that the motives stated by the revolutionaries themselves proved that Treaties were contracts with individual lines of Kings/Czars and their progeny, thus were null when the ruling family or government was overthrown.

I’m guessing the British didn’t try this trick with HK because the return on investment to defend is no longer a net profit. Similar to the stated reason in this video that CCP is not worried about the economic cost of squeezing harder to control HK.

Hopefully this all ends with more freedom for all of China, and no major fighting. Especially as they continue to argue rights to Taiwan, which the US might be willing to defend...

英国人也好意思在香港问题上提民主自由。你妈逼,香港总督是操你妈的女王设立的,还是香港人选的?
白皮猪真是无知,自大,双标,圣母到无法无天的地步了。

中国人现在安心忙发展,不跟你们见识。你们不是博爱吗,伊斯兰教自然会给你表现得机会。就等你妈逼得伦敦变成伦敦斯坦吧。

For this episode I found myself embeded with a small community in Japan. They were born there, they speak the language. But they're not Japanese citizens, or even ethnically Japanese - they're North Korean. There's about 150,000 of them living in Japan today, and they've been there for over a century.

This community has close ties with the regime in Pyongyang, which supports them financially (and vice-versa). But more importantly, Pyongyang offers them an identity, a heritage, and cultural legitimacy - things that some elements of Japanese society work to deny them.
