The truth is, the mojority of western people have nerver been to China. However, a lot of Chinese including international students and tourists actually have been to western contries.
And the westerners thought they know China more than those Chinese people. lol.

He is a reporter! A journalist! Just from a different side. This is the freedom u want? Only one voice is allowed!
They tied up and beat two men, held them like hostages, who are these “protestors” to do that?! It was heartbreaking to watch the live stream last night...

A Hong Kong woman who lived in the US and recently travelled back to Hong Kong told me herself how she, following Western news when she was in the US, thought the police were exercising violence on the protester, and how she found out the truth once she got back to Hong Kong. WESTERN MEDIA ARE ALL LIARS!
"Pro- Democracy" or " Anti-China" ???

I have been a fan for abc world news for a long time. In this report, it shows FU JIAN Chinese letters on the highway entrance. This province is far from the border of HK.

ABC, protesters tie someone to luggage cart. Can this be done in Australia? Anyone can take law in their own hand in Australia?
May I ask why not play the crowd beating Fu Guohao video?
turns violent? The protest been violent for the entire month. Will you guys just call this a riot already like what you did to BLM.

The video shows troops have gathered in board next to HK is wrong... that’s not the correct video man!!! The boarder city is Shenzhen not Fujian

It has been like this violent since 1 month ago but all your western media did was editing the videos and convince people that police are doing wrongly attacking to those people who r " peacefully force CHINA to reply".

I start to know what really happened in Tiananmen 1989 now. I watched live television last night,what I saw is the violent protesters attached innocent passengers from mainland Chine, one of the passenger is the 23 years old journalist from Shenzhen, he said: I support Hong Kong police, you can beat me now. Then this journalist been violent beaten and pass out. After that the riots blocked the way of rescue team for more than one hour, I don’t know why ABC news just ignore these.

Two innocent people were tied to luggage cart and beaten till almost passed out, this is PEACEFUL PROTEST GONE WRONG! It's purely VIOLENCE!
Imagine 20 years later when these "protesters" have status in the society. I bet they wouldn't even hesitate to pull out a firearm against newer protesters. When they are the protester, protesters are correct. When they are being protested, protesters are wrong. Simply put, ultimate selfishness.

ABC= Another propaganda mouthpiece of US regime. This is not about democracy for USA. America has a long history of supporting dictators and terrorists and toppling democratic governments. This is about countering the rise of China. US wants to be the only dominant power in the world and doesn't want China to have any influence even in its own backyard.

If anyone or any groups still supporting this protest, please stop. Look at what they are doing right now. Frustrated with Government is one thing, but it can not be the excuse to attack police officers and harass innocent travelers.
assault police officer.

US supports Hong Kong protesters millions of dollars this year, hitting Hong Kong Economy as well as US Economy.
Some truth:
1. The majority of those protesters are getting paid for protesting. Some Bad funds pay them to make HK chaos;
2. Those protesters don't love HK. their ultimate goal is to destroy Hong Kong economy, they can't represent millions of innocent quiet hardworking and kind HongKong people.
3. The protesters have been attacking the police. But the HK Police are toooooo nice to them.Respect to HongKong Police!
4. That girl's right eye was actually hurt by her protester teammate NOT police. Video already proved that. But the protesters lied and accused the police did that.

these fools are crazy now
YouTube restricts the traffic of many Chinese videos that are good for Hong Kong police and expose some truth. Some videos that are not good for the protesters can only be praised, but they can only be evaluated. After watching, the playback volume has not increased. In addition, the video and even the seal number are deleted.

Our countrymen, one of whom was just an ordinary tourist, was treated as a public security officer who fainted just because our ID card would write the name of the police station where he was located. Another of our reporters, an Anfen, did not do anything, that is, to interview.
And hit in the head, you told me it was called democracy?
That's really democratic.
Oh, it's affecting Americans' vacations. ABC is finally revealing the truth!!

What Hongkongnese want is just democracy without interference of Chinese government! They want freedom and that's it!!! Hong Kong is dying ever since Hong Kong returned to china because china restricts EVERYTHING!!!! Basically there's no freedom of speech in china. One of my Chinese friends are arrested by Chinese police by saying bad things by WeChat. China is such a horrible country I am lying. I feel so shame for HongKongnese. Their economy is dying because China is using all financial resources in hk to develop other cities in china.. Their movie lost quality because china restricted freedom of speech. And now Chinese government is trying to take away the control of hk government. HK was so developed in the past days but china just ruined everything. poor Hong Kong. I SUPPORT HK DEMOCRACY!!!

Here's what I wanna know. Why in none of these riots you ever see on the news has anyone had the idea of driving their car through the police lines? Rocks and bottles aren't nearly as effective against cops as a chevorlet is, it'd be like bowling with pigs.

I'm so glad to live in a country where we have our seconds amendment. These poor people need to use bottles and bricks while we at least have our weapons in case the government oversteps it's boundaries

Actually, Hongkong can declare state of emergency and request help from the central Chinese government.
By doing so, the Chinese armed police can move in and assist the HK police.

Honesty, this is ridiculous. It has no advantage of doing it inside the airport with a lot of foreigners who don't even care about it. WHY AIRPORT?!
I am transferring to Hongkong in a week... Ihope I can safely ride the plane.
Airport staff should put a heater on just the entrance about 40 degrees so that protestors leave the airport.
JUST CRAZY... please be over...

The parallel of Hong Kong and China to the US and GB circa 1775: Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America.
