Saw very little on the news, mainly trash crap online. Let's not even talk about television, my country information is more about politics, corruption and politics and fascism, at the moment.

What is the cause, what is happening? I really don't know anything, beside the chaos that has been going on in the city.

What country are you in?

It all started when the Hong Kong government tried to pass a bill which gives them the power to detain and extradite people in Hong Kong to territories that Hong Kong does not have extradition agreements with, including mainland China and Taiwan. People protested, fearing this to be opening a way for the China authority to grab people beyond their judicial system's reach. The Hong Kong government ignored protester's demand, instead relying on the local police force to suppress gatherings with increasingly brutal approaches.

For a simplified timeline, try this.

This is the protester's 5 core demands

Italy. Not the worst country in Europe, or the world, dealing with it, but the one who's acting the most stupidly about it, beside your personal point of view about politics, social affairs, immigration and all of the rest

Thank you, Andy, just took a closer look at the thing, nasty nasty cr*p, no joking about. From a certain point, the city is trapped between a rock and a hard place, if you take account of the international powers equilibrium, the fact that China has become one of the three superpowers in the world and sits rigth there, some miles from you. Anyone is feeling the pressure, but you're really, really ina a bad position.
That being said, just keep nuking their as*es the way you're doing. You have the right and the civil duty to protect your freedom: we are not talking the easy peasy social conflicts over here, we are talking about life and death, and most of all, honest to fug regime.

Can't do much, but I can spread the word about what I read and saw.
Fun fact: one of the few news to arrive over here was that stunt you've pulled out with the lasers, trying to friyng cams in some way. The new talked about "scy-fi urban warfare". I kid you not, THAT is the way the thing arrived here, with just a tad extra here and there.

A new round of global advertising campaign is out: printed ads on 18 newspapers in 13 countries, running from today to 30th August. See if you read it on your local newspaper.

BREAKING: Civilians on train are stormed and beaten in HK, again. this time by the police.

Location is the Prince Edward MTR station, I pass through this place everyday I commute.

This bring back memories of what occured on 21th July, at the Yuen Long MTR station, where triad mobs attacked civilians on train.
