As I’m writing, I feel a gamut of emotions: sad, upset, heart-broken, infuriated, and concerned. On the night of October 3, 2014, Hong Kong has entered dark age. Pro-Democracy protestors were beaten and bloodied as seemingly organized thus all clad in black and wore blue ribbons ravaged the protest site. Thugs punched and kicked pro-democracy protestors, many of whom college students, on Friday night, shedding blood as they tore down demonstrators’ tents and attempted to force them out. Occupy Central leader Benny Tai blamed triads for the violence in Mong Kok, a densely populated area also popular with shoppers and tourists, but also known for its gang presence. Witnesses reported that police had turned a blind eye to the triads’ actions.
Democracy activist Martin Lee told the local Hong Kong press that clearly the anti-Occupy people deliberately caused a scene and created trouble, giving police an excuse. Rumors had it that the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, a flagship pro-Beijing party and a shadow Communist Party of China in Hong Kong, had paid paid the goons to tear down demonstrators’ camps and attacked protestors. These anti-Occupy people have taken to sporting blue ribbons, the color of the local police uniforms, as a pretext to attack the thousands of yellow ribbon-wearing protestors for democracy. These blue ribbon people’s motives are highly suspicious—they are paid for by the pro-Beijing party to provoke trouble.
Now the world knows that Hong Kong government is partnered with triads while creating lies to manipulate different sectors of the society.
