          Even if the government is pro-democratic, they are still all incompetent. I've been in HK for the past 10 years and nothing's been improved or moved forward. Everything little thing is being blocked whether is's for the good or bad (can't cut tree, can't reclaim land when there's land shortage and rising real estate price, stilling high speed rail, stalling Hong Hong/Zhuhai/Zacau bridge, stalling T3 at HKIA). The politicians just play around and they have dual citizenship in the US/UK/Canada/Aus as a back road when 2047 comes or when shit hits the fan.

        Within the 5 demands, only the last one is for dual universal suffrage. I'd dare say none of the vandalism and havoc caused of far was for this demand, only for the other 4. There are peaceful ways to go about universal suffrage, as seen in the 2016 occupy Central movement. The extradition bill has been withdraws so that leaves 3 demands. The last of the 3 demands are directed against police. So in conclusion, at this point in time, it's all above protesters (i use this term very loosely) and the police. Communism? Re-education camps? Ahh, wrong fight, nobody if fighting for those reasons in HK.

        Things take into account:

        1. HK will not be independent, like it or not. China is not going to give up HK like that, just like they are not going to give up on Taiwan.

        2. 2047 is end game for HK anyway. You're fighting for 27 years of democracy and then who knows what will happen. At this rate, HK will decay at a much faster rate than expected. The reverse is happening in Macau by being obedient, China is giving preference in terms of business and economy.

        3. As much as I want democracy, it's all an illusion. Yes, you can vote for district councils, but you can't vote for the chief executive. Even if you can, it's all for 27 years and then the 1 country 2 system is gone.

          That is the defeatist attitude that the communists are promoting. In the late 80s exactly the same phrases were being used in East Germany, Hungary, Poland, etc. In 1989 the Berlin Wall fell.

          The communist party want you to believe that they are all powerful. The reality is that even in a dictatorship the people can rise up. This is what the leadership fear, because it will mean a loss of power, privilege and being forced to face judgement for their corrupt actions.

          The Hong Kong people realise that now is the time for change and the longer the protests continue the weaker the authority of the government.

          • +1 vote

            @mathew42: Berlin wall fell because the east and west wanted to reunify and there were people on both sides that want it. In HK, NOBODY wants to be part of China, but in China, EVERYBODY wants HK to be part of China. It's 1.3 billion vs. 7.3 million. Of those 1.3 billion people in China, most are afraid and will say or do anything and happily live their communist lead lives. Also iIn HK there's only 7.3 million and a portion of them are pro-CCP. Survey of those who took to the streets only amounted to around 2 million people.

            This's a totally different situation to what happened in Germany and the revolutions in the eastern bloc.

            To throw things even more off course, some of these protest are US funded to pretty much sabotage or hinder China indirectly. There's heaps of evidence to suggest this, but how deep is it I have no idea.

              @Slugoid:

              Can you imagine 1 million people on the streets of Sydney protesting for action on climate change?
              That would be a smaller percentage than on the streets of Hong Kong!

              To throw things even more off course, some of these protest are US funded to pretty much sabotage or hinder China indirectly. There's heaps of evidence to suggest this, but how deep is it I have no idea.

              I have seen zero evidence of US/UK funding. It would be a significant win for police to produce foreign protesters.
              What I have seen is numerous online posts stating a friend of friend from Malaysia was paid US$200/day to protest on streets in Hong Kong.
              Occam's Razor suggests your claim of foreign influence is a rumour spread by the government to discredit the protesters as being anti-China. The anti-China argument is a distraction from the central point of the protesters that they want to be free from tyranny.

        •  

          They've been protesting in China too Slugoid. It's just that it doesn't really make it to main stream news. Recently Guangzhou have been protesting pretty hard and copying Hong Kong slogans.

    don't get mistaken for protesters or you'll be beaten and arrested by police
    don't get mistaken for pro CCPer or you might get stabbed and beaten by hardline rioters. you pretty much have to walk around holding up your australian passport with arms in the air to be safe

    not sure why anyone would want to travel to HK atm, if you want to experience asian culture/food you're much better off in singapore/taiwan/any japanese city. even big chinese cities like shanghai has great nightlife. HK has lost its shine a long time ago there's not much culture left, shopping is no longer competitive, the locals arent particularly welcoming towards tourists and the economy is diving so things will only worsen

      There is a concerted effort by the Chinese government to weaken the Hong Kong economy as a tactic to discredit the protesters. Tourists are important. Boycotting China and instead visiting Hong Kong or Taiwan can be a way of showing support for democracy.

      In the age of state sponsored misinformation you need to critique every piece of information and determine what the poster hopes to achieve. Notice the promotion of Shanghai as a better alternative is a strong indicator that @xbai is pro Chinese communist party and hoping either state sponsored or will be using the post as evidence of party loyalty.

            @mathew42: no i don't, and judging from all the negs neither does anyone else. do you realise how ridiculous you sound?

            •  

              @xbai: A couple of months after the protests started, there were multiple posts being forwarded on WhatsApp about how mainline cities (e.g. Guangzhou & Shanghai) are on the rise and Hong Kong is no longer important, then anyone who posts something similar raises eyebrows.

              Possibly I overreacted, but when freedoms are under threat, I prefer overreaction to hesitancy.

              •  

                @mathew42: i see the HKers are out in force. look this is the kind of paranoid fanaticism that hurts your cause. i have no vested interest in china or the 'social credits' your friends describe - i don't live there and never will. i don't particularly care about your political situation i'm speaking from a tourist perspective, i've been to all the places i suggested and to be honest HK was not at the top of the list, even before riots. you can make all sorts of assertions you like but I can see how the violent rioters are hurting the cause of the peaceful protesters in HK

        •  

          Earning social credits I see? Must be fun having your life so tightly controlled. I hope you are not using Google, Facebook or Youtube while outside of China, otherwise it may lead to thought crime.

      •  

        It's true. China doesn't really "need" Hong Kong anymore. It was used as a gateway to the west for trade, but now the west trades directly with China. The CCP don't want to grant freedom or independence to Hong Kong because it would start a domino effect so they will punish and destroy Hong Kong to show the rest of China what will happen if you don't tow the line and bend to Xi Pooh's will.

        •  

          Many people who are concerned they might be detained in China because they've upset powerful people are still willing to travel to Hong Kong. Business travellers don't take the same precautions against espionage in Hong Kong.

          Singapore & Kuala Lumpur stand to benefit most from the fall of Hong Kong because they are the next closest world cities with easy access to China.

          •  

            @mathew42: The CCP just kidnap people now from Hong Kong now like the booksellers or have the HK police arrest and torture them. They don't need the extradition law.

            •  

              @subywagon: It is reasonable to think that the protesters in Hong Kong consider the kidnapped booksellers as examples of the fate that awaits dissenters and justification to continue to fight for freedom.

              Like most authoritarian regimes their behaviour can be moderated by public opinion. That means foreigners, especially Caucasians are less likely to victims of Chinese authorities.

        Honestly if you want to experience Asian culture/food just go Melbourne or Sydney…as someone who's Asian and travelled around Asia it's not a lot different…

            @superforever: Boxhill for Chinese, Springvale for Vietnamese and you can get Taiwanese, Chinese, Hong Kong etc in the city. I don't live in Sydney but I've been there and it looks more Asian than Melbourne.

              They are OK and not bad but still not 100% the same as you can find from Hong Kong local suburb.

                @superforever: You're right, Sydney was a lot worse than I expected but it's not like most people can tell the difference anyways. A lot of people I know who say want to go to Japan have never even had any japanese food before.

    I would cancel my trip to HK. It's a dangerous place to have your holidays. And I found local HK people especially in the hospitality industry are fairly rude. I know the flight is cheap, Just not worth it.

    I just spent two weeks in Hong Kong, and would go back in a heart beat.

    All the locals are just getting on with their lives and the protests are very limited.

      this is what i heard too, by chance do you visit there often? are you familiar with the place?

      just because..for first time tourists..may not be the best place to go though especially if you're roaming the streets with a hat saying I Luv HK, and a backpack.

        No, it was my first time back in 10 years. I literally stayed in protest central and felt safe 100% of the time.

      Communist party is most concerned with their own survival.
      If certain areas (e.g. Xinjiang, Tibet, Hong Kong, etc.) were able to gain some level of autonomy from the Han Chinese it would threaten the power of the communist party. That is the worst crime you can commit in China.

    • +2 votes

      The CCP is extremely concerned with any kind of dissent. See Tiananmen square, Uigher population control, how they deal with petitioners and protesters etc. Dissent undermines their ultimate authority over the people, and they believe a compliant population is the ONLY kind to have. That's why there's no democracy at all. For HK to demand democracy, autonomy and a different control system totally undermines what the CCP stands for and they would not wish for that to spread to the rest of China. They will do whatever it takes to quash this. China is massive and made up of so many different ethnic groups and self serving areas that the fear of a revolution to remove the CCP (as they themselves did) dictates their policy to remove dissidents.

        If the chinese communist party truly believe communism is that great it shouldn't have force it upon its people to make them believe this to be so.

    No one is helping HKers getting abused by communists, even when mainlanders gang up and abuse peaceful protestors overseas.

    In the old days, people would start a war just to fight off the spread of communism. Nowadays, people think free hong kong is a meme.

    Shtty world we live in where police can take people off the streets coz they dont like you.

    Sending you to labour camps/beat you up/abuse you ya out of sight of the public is just the norm.

    Shttier world when Google is helping communist China on the enterprise level for AI and mass surveillance so they are more effective at tracking people down to get beaten up and silencing them.

    Time to cancel flights!

    •  

      We did cancel and had our cancellation fees waived. I think that honestly it is safe to travel to hong kong, but we were going to use it as transit into china for a longer time, so bad idea.

      •  

        Your gut feeling is at odds with travel advisories - for obvious reasons. (Some) HK govt employees have been told to stay home this week. Common sense would suggest if you can cancel or postpone trips to any part of China you'd be advised to do so. If not, make sure you have enough approved masks to last your trip, make sure you wear one everywhere you go, try not to touch anything the masses might, and wash your hands often.

      •  

        how did you manage to get cancellation fee waived? Did you book directly with Qantas? They only waive cancellation fee for flight to mainland China.

    •  

      StudentUniverse still impose $400 Qantas penalty + $100 Admin fee when asked about cancellation, despite the current virus situation :(. They said have had no information of changes from Qantas to Hong Kong..
