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.

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.

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.

In China , most boys are cousins

https://anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?7898-How-the-Han-Chinese-became-the-biggest-tribe

The Han Chinese, the world's biggest ethnic group, owe their rise thanks to massive southward migration from northern China led by the men of their tribe, according to a new study.

Chinese tradition says that the Han sprung from the ancient Huaxia communities of northern China and that their influence then spread south.

....
They analysed the blood for telltale sequences in the Y chromosome, which only males have, and for variations of mitochondrial DNA, which is only handed down by women.

Little difference was found in the Y-chromosome fingerprint, but there were broad variations in the mitochondrial sequences. In other words, there was a clear Han lineage, determined by the males who initially came out of the north.

These men crossed the Yangtze River that until some 2,000 years ago was the country's ethnic divide. They then fanned out, progressively heading to the southwest, the southeast and due south, eventually to the tropical island of Hainan.
...
"The massive movement of the northern immigrants led to a change in genetic makeup in southern China, and resulted in the demographic expansion of Han people as well as their culture."

Ancient DNA Reveals That the Genetic Structure of the Northern Han Chinese Was Shaped Prior to 3,000 Years Ago

Yong-Bin Zhao ,
PLOS

Published: May 4, 2015
https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0125676

Abstract

The Han Chinese are the largest ethnic group in the world, and their origins, development, and expansion are complex.

Many genetic studies have shown that Han Chinese can be divided into two distinct groups: northern Han Chinese and southern Han Chinese.

The genetic history of the southern Han Chinese has been well studied. However, the genetic history of the northern Han Chinese is still obscure. In order to gain insight into the genetic history of the northern Han Chinese, 89 human remains were sampled from the Hengbei site which is located in the Central Plain and dates back to a key transitional period during the rise of the Han Chinese (approximately 3,000 years ago). We used 64 authentic mtDNA data obtained in this study, 27 Y chromosome SNP data profiles from previously studied Hengbei samples, and genetic datasets of the current Chinese populations and two ancient northern Chinese populations to analyze the relationship between the ancient people of Hengbei and present-day northern Han Chinese. We used a wide range of population genetic analyses, including principal component analyses, shared mtDNA haplotype analyses, and geographic mapping of maternal genetic distances. The results show that the ancient people of Hengbei bore a strong genetic resemblance to present-day northern Han Chinese and were genetically distinct from other present-day Chinese populations and two ancient populations. These findings suggest that the genetic structure of northern Han Chinese was already shaped 3,000 years ago in the Central Plain area.

10 Most Genocidal Wars In Chinese History

In those thousands of years of civilization, China has been the scene of several genocidal bloodbaths. Some of these were due to outside invasions, while others were the result of civil wars and imperial politicking. Either way, the following incidents featured mass slaughter on a scale unprecedented until the horrors of World War II. Some even exceeded the body count of the Bolsheviks, Joseph Stalin, and Adolf Hitler.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnic_issues_in_China
China is a largely homogenous society; over 90 percent of its population has historically been Han Chinese.[1] Some of the country's ethnic groups are distinguishable by physical appearance and relatively-low intermarriage rates. Others have married Han Chinese and resemble them. A growing number of ethnic minorities are fluent at a native level in Mandarin Chinese. Children sometimes receive ethnic-minority status at birth if one of their parents belongs to an ethnic minority, even if their ancestry is predominantly Han Chinese. Pockets of immigrants and foreign residents exist in some cities such as Africans in Guangzhou.

A 100-day crackdown on illegal foreigners in Beijing began in May 2012, with Beijing residents wary of foreign nationals due to recent crimes.[2][3] China Central Television host Yang Rui said, controversially, that "foreign trash" should be cleaned out of the capital.

China's Han Superstate: The New Third Reich
by Gordon G. Chang
April 3, 2019 at 5:00 am

    China's ruler, Xi Jinping, demands that the five recognized religions — official recognition is a control mechanism — "Sinicize." The Chinese, as a part of this ruthless and relentless effort, are destroying mosques and churches, forcing devout Muslims to drink alcohol and eat pork, inserting Han officials to live in Muslim homes, and ending religious instruction for minors.

In recent years, there have been many ugly portrayals of Africans in Chinese media, and although the skit last year was not the worst, it was striking because the main state broadcaster, by airing it to about 800 million viewers, made it clear Chinese officials think of Africans as both objects of derision and subhuman.

    Concentration camps, racism, eugenics, ambitions of world domination. Sound familiar?

    There is a new Third Reich, and it is China.


...

At the same time, Beijing is renewing its attempt to eliminate religion country-wide. Christians have come under even greater attack across China, as have Buddhists. China's ruler, Xi Jinping, demands that the five recognized religions — official recognition is a control mechanism — "Sinicize." The Chinese, as a part of this ruthless and relentless effort, are destroying mosques and churches, forcing devout Muslims to drink alcohol and eat pork, inserting Han officials to live in Muslim homes, and ending religious instruction for minors.

These attempts, which have antecedents in Chinese history, have been intensified since Xi became the Communist Party's general secretary in November 2012.

At the same time, Xi, far more than his predecessors, has been promoting the concept of a world order ruled by only one sovereign, a Chinese one. [ see: https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13497/china-sovereign-state   Xi Jinping Thinks China Is World's Only Sovereign State ]

In broad outline, Xi's vision of the world is remarkably similar to that of the Third Reich, at least before the mass murders.

The Third Reich and the People's Republic share a virulent racism, in China politely referred to as "Han chauvinism." The Han category, which is said to include about 92% of the population of the People's Republic, is in truth the amalgamation of related ethnic groups.

...

As a result of racism, many in China, including officials, "believe themselves to be categorically different from and impliedly superior to the rest of the humankind," writes Fei-Ling Wang, author of The China Order: Centralia, World Empire, and the Nature of Chinese Power.

...

[ one child policy ending ? ]


In 2024, another momentous event will occur. Then, for the first time in at least 300 years — and maybe for the first time in recorded history — China will not be the world's most populous society. That honor will go to a country the Chinese generally both detest and fear, India. When India peaks in 2061, it will have a population 398.088 million larger than China's.

...

He Jiankui of Shenzhen's Southern University of Science and Technology announced in November that he had used CRISPR to edit human embryos that produced live births, in this case twins girls. He claimed he was making the babies resistant to HIV, but there is speculation he was also trying to enhance intelligence. In any event, the announcement evoked Nazi eugenics experiments, especially because there is evidence that the Chinese government had backed He's "world's first" experiment, considered unethical and dangerous.

...

Horner sees disconcerting similarities between Xi's China and 1930s Imperial Japan. "Like Imperial Japan then," Horner said, "Xi and the Party look backward to a mythologized past when a benign Emperor brought the whole world together to bask in his glory and share his munificence."

Hong Kong descends into chaos again as protesters defy ban
By KELVIN CHANtoday



HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong streets descended into chaotic scenes following an unauthorized pro-democracy rally Sunday as protesters set up roadblocks and torched businesses and police responded with tear gas and a water cannon.

Protesters tossed firebombs and took their anger out on shops with mainland Chinese ties as they skirmished late into the evening with riot police, who unleashed numerous tear gas rounds on short notice, angering residents and passers-by.

Police had beefed up security measures ahead of the rally, for which they refused to give permission, the latest chapter in the unrest that has disrupted life in the financial hub since early June.

Some 24 people were hurt and treated at hospitals, including six with serious injuries, the Hospital Authority said.

Police did not give an arrest figure. One person was seen being handcuffed and taken away to a police van.

Leaked Chinese Government Documents Prove Muslims Are Being Detained In Massive Numbers

There's now substantial evidence - in the Chinese government's own words - that they are detaining Muslims in massive numbers.

403 pages of internal documents have been leaked to the New York Times that describe a clampdown in Xinjiang - a resource-rich territory located on the border of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia - where authorities have "corralled as many as a million ethnic Uighurs, Kazakhs and others into internment camps and prisons over the past three years."

In Xinjiang, Muslim ethnic minority groups make up more than half the region's population of 25 million. The largest group is the Uighurs. Beijing has fought with the Uighurs for decades, who have offered resistance to Chinese rule.

...

The campaign is being called "ruthless and extraordinary". Senior party leaders are recorded ordering "drastic and urgent" action, including mass detentions. The leaked papers show how the country carried out its "most far-reaching internment campaign since the Mao era."
...

President Xi Jinping laid the groundwork for the camps during speeches to officials in Xinjiang in April 2014, after Uighur militants stabbed more than 150 people at a train station, killing 31. In his speech, Xi called for "an all-out struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism using the organs of dictatorship and showing absolutely no mercy.”

Xi also said: “The methods that our comrades have at hand are too primitive. None of these weapons is any answer for their big machete blades, ax heads and cold steel weapons. We must be as harsh as them and show absolutely no mercy.”

...

In another speech, he said: “After the United States pulls troops out of Afghanistan, terrorist organizations positioned on the frontiers of Afghanistan and Pakistan may quickly infiltrate into Central Asia. East Turkestan’s terrorists who have received real-war training in Syria and Afghanistan could at any time launch terrorist attacks in Xinjiang.”

...

Since 2017, hundreds of thousands of Muslims have been detained in Xinjiang. One leaked document describes how to handle minority students returning home to Xinjiang in summer 2017 to find that their relatives have been detained. The document says that students should be informed that their relatives are receiving “treatment”.

China has 500+ Uighur camps and prisons and is holding far more than one million, activists say
Xeni Jardin / 12:42 pm Tue Nov 12, 2019



On Tuesday, advocates for human rights for China's Uighur minority said they have documented 500 camps and prisons in China run by the government to detain people identified as belonging to that targeted ethnic group.

The activists say that when you add up the number of detention facilities they've identified, it means China must be holding a total number of Uighur people that far exceeds the commonly cited figure of one million people.


...

"If anything, we are concerned that there may be more facilities that we have not been able to identify," he told a news conference in suburban Washington.

Anders Corr, an analyst who formerly worked in US intelligence and who advised the group, said that around 40 percent of the sites had not been previously reported.

China uses torture and sexual abuse to “forcibly integrate Uighurs into the Han majority, including pressuring Muslims to give up tenets of their faith such as praying and abstaining from pork and alcohol,” the report continues.

Massive Turnout in Hong Kong Elections Amid Unrest
November 24, 2019

Hong Kongers voted in record numbers Sunday in a local election that is widely seen as a de facto referendum on recent pro-democracy protests.

Voters formed long lines that snaked around city blocks outside polling stations across the territory, many waiting more than an hour to vote in local elections that are usually viewed as relatively inconsequential.

District Council members who are being elected by Hong Kong voters have no power to pass legislation. But the election is the first chance for Hong Kongers to vote since a wave of anti-government protests erupted in June, creating bitter divides in Hong Kong society.

A record 4.1 million Hong Kongers registered to vote, and it appears a record number will turn out. By midday Sunday, the number of voters had surpassed that of the previous District Council election in 2015, according to government figures. By 3:30 p.m., nearly 2 million had cast their ballots.

“This amount of people I’ve never seen. There are so many people,” said Felix, who works in the real estate industry and voted in the central business district.

Sending a message

Hong Kongers are choosing more than 400 members of 18 district councils scattered across the tiny territory. The district councils essentially serve as advisory bodies for local decisions such as building roads or schools.

“I think the political message is more important than anything else,” Ma Ngok, a political scientist and professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, said. “If the democrats really score a landslide victory, it will show very clearly that the public is in support of the movement.”

China accuses US of ‘sinister intentions’ after Trump signs bills supporting Hong Kong protesters
Published Wed, Nov 27 2019

China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Thursday it firmly opposes the U.S. signing of a bill into law that supports the Hong Kong protesters.
The ministry emphasized that Hong Kong is part of China through the “one country, two systems” policy, and that the special administration region’s issues are internal affairs.
On Wednesday evening, Trump signed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 into law. He also signed another bill banning the sale of munitions like tear gas and rubber bullets to Hong Kong police.

...
“We are officially telling the U.S. and the handful of opposition politicians in Hong Kong who follow America’s lead to not underestimate our determination to protect Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability, don’t underestimate our belief to protect the ‘one country, two systems policy’ and don’t underestimate our capabilities and strategies in protecting our country’s sovereignty, safety, growth and rights,” the office said, according to a CNBC translation of an online-Chinese language statement.

In a statement released by the White House, Trump said, “I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong. They are being enacted in the hope that Leaders and Representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all.”

'We are really grateful': Hong Kong protesters throw ‘Thanksgiving rally’ to celebrate US support
by Madison Dibble
November 28, 2019

Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong gathered to celebrate the legislation signed by President Trump in support of their autonomy from China.

On Wednesday, Trump signed legislation that required the State Department to do an annual review of the relationship between Hong Kong and China to ensure that China does not overreach and hamper with Hong Kong’s autonomy. The legislation received support from every senator and all but one member of the House.

While signing the bill, Trump didn’t condemn China and claimed the legislation aimed to respect both President Xi Jinping and the people of Hong Kong, saying, “I signed these bills out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong. They are being enacted in the hope that leaders and representatives of China and Hong Kong will be able to amicably settle their differences leading to long term peace and prosperity for all.”

Trump’s attempt to please both sides did not fly with Chinese officials. China promised “firm countermeasures” in response to the legislation, which will likely rock any trade deal in the near future.

The legislation may have upset China, but the people of Hong Kong were thrilled. Thousands took to the streets with American flags in a “Thanksgiving rally” out of appreciation for the legislation.

Thousands in Hong Kong Stage 'Thanksgiving' Rally After Trump Signs Rights Bill



...
"The rationale for us having this rally is to show our gratitude and thank the U.S Congress and also President Trump for passing the bill," said 23-year-old Sunny Cheung, a member of the student group that lobbied for the legislation.
...
Hong Kong's Beijing-backed government said the legislation sent the wrong signal to demonstrators and "clearly interfered" with the city's internal affairs.

China is considering barring the drafters of the legislation, whose U.S. Senate sponsor is Florida Republican Marco Rubio, from entering mainland China as well as Hong Kong and Macau, Xu Xijin, the editor of China's Global Times tabloid, said on Twitter.

Hong Kong Protests Attract Massive Crowds, Estimated 800k March In Financial District
Sun, 12/08/2019 - 10:15

With zero signs of abating, hundreds of thousands of pro-democracy protestors lined the streets around Hong Kong's financial and shopping districts on Sunday, demanding the Beijing-backed Hong Kong government fulfill their demands, reported Reuters.

The semi-peaceful protest, a drastic change from violent ones in the last several weeks that have been raging for at least six months, plunged the city into a dangerous recession in Nov., attracted at least 800,000 participants on Sunday, according to protest organizer Civil Human Rights Front. Though Hong Kong police said, approximately 200,000 showed up.


...

China has become more vocal about Western powers interfering in the Hong Kong protests since the US signed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act HKHRDA) into law last month. This allows Washington to impose sanctions against Chinese and Hong Kong leaders responsible for human rights violations during the protests.

Beijing was furious when the US lawmakers passed HKHRDA, which they have vowed to retaliate with a no-entry list for US lawmakers behind drafting the bill, along with other government officials, though the true extent of the retaliation remains a mystery.

On Saturday, we noted that the president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong was detained and then denied access to the neighboring Chinese city of Macau.
