KAOHSIUNG (Taiwan News) — There were stirring scenes in Hong Kong on Sunday as the people of the proud City-state took to the streets to oppose the systematic erosion of their rights by Communist China.

It is estimated that well over a million people took part in protests against a new law proposed by the Beijing-controlled legislature that would permit extradition of criminal suspects to China, despite that country’s deeply flawed and unjust judicial system.

To put the numbers in context, a million people would represent more than one in eight people in Hong Kong and would make it the largest single protest in Hong Kong since a similar number took to the streets thirty years ago to protest the CCP’s massacre of democracy activists in Tiananmen Square. It is nearly twice as many as are estimated to have taken part in the Umbrella Revolution back in 2014.

This serves to illustrate all too clearly the strength of feeling among the people against the growing Chinese incursion into Hong Kong affairs and the direction that the so-called ‘one country, two systems’ model is moving.    [FULL  STORY]
