Well I wasn’t talking about “Socialism with Chinese Characteristics”, which admittedly made China rich with less poor people than in the US.

The United Nations, NATO and perhaps a new Democratic coalition have to step in. I'm not sure what power against an economic hegemon, but making it a problem means Hong Kong could end up independent (Macau too) when China's down on it's luck. Once it ends up one city amongst many in the area, this could either be doomed, or be the start of something bigger

A bit off from that, I'm personally all for the Commonwealth putting together some sort of rebuke, though I doubt it will happen, especially for the African nations and Pakistan being in here. If a coalition of Britain, Guyana, India, Australia (I pray) and New Zealand all got together and agreed this was f*cked up, and started moving toward a solution, that would go a long way and help Hong Kong with the cultural feeling of abandonment.

That's part of the recognition process of the independence of Taiwan. Taiwan wants to give up all its claims to the mainland and Mongolia, but can't due to the status quo.

Your opinion is very nice and all, but have you considered letting the Chinese people decide how they want to be governed?

Good, they shouldn't. There's only one China and it's capital is Taipei.

There's a White House petition up at the moment though it's not doing much..

Feel free to share it out peeps.

Hide. Afterwards, deliberate on the fastest way to leave Hong Kong, and organize accordingly. If you can help a few people of Hong Kong leave along the way, that's a world of good.

Regimes like these can't be protested against; they have to be fought. Nice to see these protesters aren't going to make the same mistake those in Tienanmen did.

It more easily allows the side with guns to lie and say they were provoked.

The worsening political situation, as well as severe overcrowding brought on by Mainlanders flooding into Hong Kong thanks to the city-state's open borders policy and eroding its language, culture and cosmopolitan, multicultural identity, are the reasons my family moved back to Malaysia. My childhood home of nearly 30 years: Sold. Fuck you Beijing. By the way, if any of you guys use WeChat, uninstall it now. I'm pleasantly surprised that HK people are still fighting for their freedom even now. There is a small but not insignificant independence movement and a growing nostalgia for British rule as well as a sense of betrayal at Britain's withdrawal.

Sending a clear message to the regime that the people won't simply roll over and grovel at their command.

Also, martyrdom; inspiring future resistance.
