Hong Kong: Looking back at 100 days of protests - BBC News

  • Published on Sep 17, 2019
  • Hong Kong has been gripped by huge and at times violent protests since an extradition bill was proposed which would have made it possible for people in Hong Kong to be extradited to mainland China.
    The unrest has seen millions of people pressure the government to withdraw the bill and call for full democracy.

    Alleged police brutality? Cause I’m sure not even my American government has ever used the police as a buffer to trample on those they want to suppress or oppress. America needs to boycott China, Israel and any dictatorship. We need to join the EU and get every other democratic nation in the world to do the same. We will find a way to survive without needing to trade with any oppressive regime!

    You failed to even mention that months earlier, Jimmy Lai Chee Ying who used to own Apple Daily, met with top US officials in USA in April this year, also Martin Lee Chu Ming met with top US officials, also Anson Chan met with top US officials as well. You even failed to even mention this, why???? What was the purpose of those visits months before the June riots???

    Disgusting BBC news always hide those criminals crime ,emphasized to show how police officers were violence . That girl’s eye was not shot by police . Until now it hasn’t still no evidence . You never mentioned the hospital report which proved not the the bullet from police. And there were more 30 normal Hongkong old individuals and women were attacked and beat by those criminals you never show those videos. I shame on you. Hope you UK has more Scotland to be independent ,more rioters and protesters walk on the street!

    Hong Kong should have the right to become a free independent nation of itself and the free world should help defend them. Hong Kong citizen have done so much for the world and it is time for free countries to help them to become free.
    China is nothing more then a bully to them.

    Recently, some BBC reporters have found that there are some pro-communists, and unlike the past, they have a neutral attitude and are disappointing. For example: Today's Hong Kong News The scene of this performance. He did not mention the past events that occurred in 721-831(July21-August31)and got today's results. Everything has a cause and effect.
    The Hong-Kong (HK)government Carrie Lam hired triads, rogues and mercenaries from China working with police teams, they were mix inside protesters creating violence, chasing using excessive weapons pushing HK citizen and protesters inside the railway station(trapping them in MTR. Stopping reporters and the rescue team going into the station) beating on their heads, spray and shooting tear gas in to their face, murdering them. The truth and the fact what were happening on Saturday 31-8-2019 of Prince station with daily basic of CCTV (closed-circuit television) records be hidden and concealing the truth done by HK MTR and local hospital under the command of the police, also an artificial make more violent by putting up fire. The youngest protesters and HK citizen would like to resolve and have justice, of the reason of that station destroyed and made it closed and trapped by the police. The five demands need to be met immediately, which are to withdraw the bill, for the leader Carrie Lam to step down, an enquiry to police brutality, for those who have been incorrectly arrested to be released and greater democratic freedoms. All need to be met and not just one.光復香港 時代革命 五大訴求 缺一不可 還回香港自由 民主 人權 和平 必須以和理非態度 求人不如求己 懂得(有)爭取才有希望 香港人加油 加油 海外僑胞支持您們 保護好自己和身邊的人 加油加油

    断章取义的新闻. I used to believe BBC news had a high standard in reporting real news. But not anymore. Your hundred days of hong kong protest is very misleading from the photos and tag lines. Especially on the lady who had her eye shot. Firstly she was not in the train station and she mysteriously disappeared for more than a month after the incident. Even the Hong Kong police are still asking her to come forward to make a police report on her injury. But many one sided news companies had use this to flame the Hong Kong police. I only hope that BBC will be more neutral when reporting about the Hong Kong Protests.

      @Edin Watson the whole world is waiting for the female protestor to come out to let the truth out. However her reaction to this incident only has one word covering the whole issue....Lie, Lie, Lie and more lie about what actually happened.

They're backed by the gang of four Emily, Jeremy, Jimmy, Anson for their initial agenda to remove the extradition law. They have destroyed HK peace and HK economy and people's family too are destroyed and soon their businesses, shops and soon alot of jobs will be lost.
    These terrorist must be arrested and jailed for the betterment of HK future.

And, to be honest, you really need to do a more diligent research about 89, instead of just taking whatever "others" tell you. Plus, if we follow your logic, any government that is completely guilt free? Tell me one, not US I hope lol. Chinese government is the only one that is capable to take Billions out of poverty.

    What a sad state of affair, the rioters are being used by the West against China and they don't even know it. These young rioters were obviously indoctrinated in school - they never studied history, never learned where they came from, and never learned the contributions of their ancestors to HK and China. The HK youth of today thinks that white people and the west are far superior than them, truly such an embarrassment. What could be worse than Hating your own culture, skin color, and core beliefs.

    Hong Kong is a blessed place, the most free place,
    People are free to enter and exit,
    Funds are free to enter and exit,
    Business can be freely traded,
    Renminbi, foreign currency can be freely circulated,
    What financial products are available, all can be freely traded, and what financial products are spurred by the enthusiasm of the dream is developed, the double exhibition is small, and the financial thugs are tempting.
    Hong Kong is a spy paradise, which is the great value of Hong Kong.
    Hong Kong's wealth is a financing center.
    Hong Kong is an interest group (black and white), and property hegemony has plundered huge wealth.
    Hong Kong's surplus value, who loves, Hong Kong's status, rock-solid, worthless, what are you worried about? ?

      @Jason She refused to file a case for the eye shot. Also she refused to reveal her medical report to the public. The ammo the doctor got out of her matched those used by the rioters. There are people analyzed the case and there is no way the police could shoot her in the eye based on the position they stood. I don't see why she refused to reveal the medical report of she can prove that the police shot her. She has no evidence at all to prove the police shot her in the eye, instead she has been trying hard to hide all information about her treatments.

    I used to love BBC until now, when BBC does not show any footage on rioters beating up police, elderly, women, young and old, basically anyone who voiced disagreements at their violent behaviour. Those rioters have systematically set fire on busy streets and MTR stations, vandalize public and private properties. I regret that I used to believe western journalists keep a higher professional standard but lately such belief has become a joke. But hey, thanks for waking me up!

    I know I'm a Chinese and this sounds like I've been brain washed by Chinese government, but I still want to point this out.
    Working hard for money gives you freedom, with money you can go anywhere and do anything. Travelling, buying stuff you like, get nursed in a great hospital once you are sick or injured.
    I've been to England and America and now studying in Canada. I'm planning to finish university in two years and go to grad school. I value freedom so I'm trying to get there, and I can see it coming if I continue to do good.
    What I'm trying to say is maybe Hong Kong is very important to you, but maybe you yourself is more important. Stop protesting, stop getting hurt, and leave China/Hong Kong if you think it's a trashcan.
    All for the best, to you, HongKongese people and police. (Hey, police gets hurt in Hong Kong too!)

      so you think geopolitically, its a good idea to cut ties with the hand that feeds you? You do understand that HK is just a city which relies on China and the rest of Asia for resources?
      Pretty sure your plan of action would remove HK from economic stability.
      But apparently the livelihoods of the people should be disregarded because China is evil for being able to feed its people?
      Actually their people learn trades in landscape architecture and sustainable development and all STEM subjects.
      In contrast to HK where everyone just studies to be an accountant or lawyer because money is good.
      Its almost as if you have a subjective view on things. You say Chinese tech explodes, well what about Boeing? Thought America was a land of perfection?
      And i think you disregarded the value of learning from your own mistakes or are simply envious.
      HK would never be like China. It has always been a business hub to create factories IN China. So to spread fear about HK losing its identity is simply stupid.
