HK won't top Merkel's China trip agenda

We believe that when Merkel raised the Hong Kong affairs in Beijing, she was perfunctory. Hong Kong will never top the agenda of her trip. Merkel's words on Hong Kong will not affect exchanges between China and Germany.

Can an emergency be proclaimed in Hong Kong?

We believe that the discussion on whether to use the Emergency Regulations Ordinance is a right step for the Hong Kong community to combat violence. Hong Kong has many more available legal resources, and activating and mobilizing them will not only have an effect, but also help maintain the consistent logic of Hong Kong's existing legal system, and make the anti-riot measures strictly follow the rule of law.

MTR should avoid kowtowing to HK radical forces

Without a stable and prosperous Hong Kong, where is the future of the MTR and the Hong Kong people? The management of the MTR should not lose its way. It's time for the MTR to take a firm stand. It should do its part so that Hong Kong does not lose its tomorrow.

Futile for Washington to play HK card

The incident in Hong Kong won't be a repeat of the June 4th political incident in 1989. Washington will not be able to intimidate China by using the turmoil 30 years ago. China is much stronger and more mature, and its ability to manage complex situations has been greatly enhanced.

Color revolution aims to ruin HK's future

The Chinese government will never allow extreme opposition and the West to pull Hong Kong into the anti-China camp, nor will it allow the city to slip into long-term chaos or become a base for the West to subvert China's political system. This is a grim fight between attempts to deprive and defend the city's international financial center status.

Hong Kong must make a choice: stability or turmoil?

Hong Kong will have to choose. If it provides opportunities for terrorism, Hong Kong will be engulfed in turmoil and most Hongkongers will lose their stable life. But if Hong Kong chooses stability, then it should not give any chance for terrorism and should firmly crack down on terrorist activities. A middle course does not exist.

Hong Kong's prosperity can counter US meddling

There are varied understandings of Hong Kong's prosperity, and even local residents have hugely diverging views on it.
