Protests Force Hong Kong to Cancel Communist ‘National Day’ Celebration
Frances Martel
18 Sep 2019


The government of Hong Kong canceled a fireworks show on Wednesday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of communist China, fearing the event would be a magnet for pro-democracy protesters who do not feel bound by Beijing.

The People’s Republic of China, as the communist tyranny is officially named, is planning the largest military parade in decades in Beijing and a host of activities to celebrate Mao Ze Dong and the legacy of radical Marxism in China. Communist Party chairman Xi Jinping will reportedly deliver an “important” speech, according to state media, that many believe may finally address the three months of protests against his regime in Hong Kong.

...

“In view of the latest situation and having regard to public safety, the National Day Fireworks Display originally scheduled to take place at Victoria Harbour in the evening of October 1 (Tuesday) will be canceled,” a statement issued Wednesday by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of the city government read. HKFP notes that other similar holiday events, such as a flag-raising ceremony, appear to still be scheduled to occur.

...
Xi has refused to address the political crisis in Hong Kong save for a passing remark that the city is among the “struggles” communists must overcome in their aspirations to rule the world during a speech in early September.

Hong Kong protesters defy ban to challenge Beijing on Communist China's 70th birthday
Updated on: October 1, 2019 / 7:49 AM / CBS/AP

Hong Kong — Thousands of black-clad protesters marched in central Hong Kong as part of multiple pro-democracy rallies Tuesday urging China's Communist Party to "return power to the people," as the party celebrated its 70th year of rule. The protesters defied a police ban to march along a broad city thoroughfare, chanting anti-China slogans and carrying Chinese flags defaced with a black cross.

Chaos erupted as hundreds of riot-equipped police swooped in to try and break up the protests, and CBS News correspondent Ramy Inocencio said video posted online appeared to show one protester being shot at almost point-blank range in the chest by a police officer with a handgun. The wounded protester survived and was being treated for his injury.

Leading pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong told CBS News that he and the other demonstrators felt it was their duty to turn the "dream" of enduring democracy in Hong Kong into a reality, but Inocencio said the scenes on Tuesday were more of a nightmare.

In Hong Kong, Young Protester Shot By Police Becomes New Call for Protests
By Frank Fang, Epoch Times
Comments October 2, 2019 Updated: October 2, 2019

In Hong Kong, the injury of an 18-year-old student, who was shot by a police officer during protests on Oct. 1, has become another reason for Hongkongers to continue their mass demonstrations, now in their 17th consecutive week.

The student, Tsang Chi-kin, attended Tsuen Wan Public Ho Chuen Yiu Memorial College. He was critically wounded after he was shot in the chest during a scuffle with police in the Tsuen Wan neighborhood. Tsang was shot in his left lung, three centimeters from his heart, according to local media.

It was the first time a police officer opened fire at a protester in months of demonstrations that began in opposition to a controversial extradition bill.

He was first sent to Princess Margaret Hospital, then transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for an operation.

US citizen accused by feds of spying for Chinese government
Posted 4:23 PM, September 30, 2019,


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A California man who operates tours for Chinese students and visitors was charged with being an illegal foreign agent and delivering classified U.S. national security information to officials in China. U.S. government officials announced Monday.

U.S. Attorney David L. Anderson accused Xuehua Edward Peng, 56, of a “combination of age-old spycraft and modern technology.”

“The charges announced today provide a rare glimpse into the secret efforts of the People’s Republic of China to obtain classified national security information from the United States,” Anderson said.

The U.S. is engaged in a trade war with China, but John Bennett, the FBI agent in charge of San Francisco, said international politics had nothing to do with the arrest and charges against Peng.

We have criminal spies that are running around in our area of responsibility and it’s the FBI’s mission to stop this, so what’s going on in the rest of the world, it doesn’t matter to us,” he said.

,....

Peng was arrested at his home Friday and ordered held without bond at a hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero. He is scheduled to return to court Wednesday.

The criminal complaint says Peng is a naturalized U.S. citizen who entered the country on a temporary business visitor visa and became a permanent resident in 2006. Peng was naturalized in September 2012.

He holds an acupuncturist license from the state.

If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Undercover Cops Badly Beaten As Hong Kong Protesters Rampage Over 'Anti-Mask' Law
Fri, 10/04/2019 - 12:51

Update (12:30 pm ET): The backlash to Carrie Lam's "anti-mask law" intensified late in the Hong Kong evening, resulting in the entire MTR public transit network being closed down. Protesters are preparing what would be an 'illegal' demonstration on Saturday as they march from Causeway Bay into down town.

From 1 pm on Saturday through the end of the day, airport-bound Express trains will be the only trains running. They will travel from Hong Kong station to Hong Kong International Airport.

It has been posted that chi-comm infiltration has occurred creating violent incidents to be blamed on protestors ... hmmm yes violence is destroying hk   

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-04/hong-kong-invokes-rare-emergency-powers-to-ban-masks-at-protests?srnd=premium-asia

Hong Kong invoked emergency powers for the first time in more than half a century to ban face masks for protesters after months of unrest, prompting demonstrators to occupy downtown streets.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Friday the move was necessary to stem increased violence in recent weeks, including attacks by protesters using petrol bombs, corrosive liquids and other weapons. The prohibition on face masks will deter violence and help police enforce the law, she said, adding that the measure didn’t mean Hong Kong was under a state of emergency.
...
“The violence is destroying Hong Kong,” Lam told reporters, flanked by 16 members of her cabinet. “We must save the present Hong Kong and the future Hong Kong.”

The Finance 202: Impeachment probe clouds prospects for U.S.-China trade talks

By Tory Newmyer
October 8 2019 at 7:47 AM

Whatever chances remained of the Trump White House striking a major trade deal with the Chinese this fall appear to have left the building as the impeachment crisis walked in.

That is the rough truth confronting Trump’s trade negotiators as they this week restart talks with their Beijing counterparts in Washington. The Chinese feel no compulsion to make big concessions to a besieged President Trump.

Tipping points are funny things in markets and in life in general. Sometimes you see them clearly ahead of time, sometimes only in hindsight. Sometimes you still don’t see them even afterwards. But they are there regardless.

Most Americans have paid no attention at all to developments in China aside from not liking tariffs. But touch basketball and suddenly things get serious! Daryl Morey, general manager of the Houston Rockets, recently tweeted support for pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, and the immediate reaction was China--an avid NBA market of 500m--banning the team. Morey deleted the tweet and made a very humble apology, as did the Rockets, which didn’t assuage Chinese fury; but it did create a backlash against the Rockets from the US public, who are pro-democracy, and from US politicians, who are anti-China, and whom are noticing that the outspoken-on-domestic-politics NBA runs a training camp in Xinjiang(!) Indeed, there is new focus on the issue of US firms ‘having to kowtow to Beijing’. Is it a tipping point in US-China relations as trade talks begin? Hard to say. But it’s a discussion the average American will be part of for once.

China Banned South Park After the Show Made Fun of Chinese Censorship
"You gotta lower your ideals of freedom if you want to suck on the warm teat of China."
Robby Soave | 10.7.2019 1:37 PM



In a case of life imitating art imitating life, the Chinese government has purged all references to South Park from the country's highly restricted internet—following an episode of the show that criticized Chinese censorship.
...
"Band in China," the second episode of the show's 23rd season, satirizes China's heavy-handed crackdowns on free expression. The kids attempt to make a biopic about their new rock band, only to discover that they need to sanitize the plot to appease the Chinese government.
...

And on Baidu's Tieba, China's largest online discussions platform, the threads and sub-threads related to South Park are nonfunctional. If users manually type in the URL for what was formerly the South Park thread, a message appears saying that, "According to the relevant law and regulation, this section is temporarily not open."

The South Park ban proceeds news that Chinese broadcasters will no longer air the Houston Rockets' NBA games because a general manager tweeted in support of the Hong Kong protests. Both incidents should serve as reminders that China is a one-party state whose authoritarian government squelches freedom of speech at every turn.

Over the weekend, Chinese censors blocked users of WeChat and Weibo, China's bigger-than-Twitter microblogging platform, from using the name of the most famous resident of the Hundred Acre Wood in the comment section of posts. Times

Winnie-the-Pooh, the beloved children's icon, has been blacklisted in China following comparisons between the pot-bellied bear and China's president, the Financial Times reported.

The reasons for China's Pooh ban remain unclear, the Times said, but it may or may not have to do with previous online comparisons of the pants-less bear to Chinese President Xi Jinping.
