When Peaceful Protest Doesn’t Work, What Do You Do? They’re Asking That in Hong Kong, Too.

HONG KONG—Typed on screens, painted as graffiti, and yelled out loud, the idea of “burning together” (laam chau in Cantonese) is invoked by some Hongkongers who believe a scorched earth attitude is the only reasonable response to desperate times. Decades of nonviolent demonstrations have barely moved the needle in their quest for self-determination, and as the legal and political climates have begun to shift at a much more rapid pace, with Beijing determined to change the way Hong Kong functions...

Beijing has undermined the image of a stable Hong Kong | Isabel Hardman

China has effectively torn up the treaty it signed with the Thatcher government – yet the UK’s response is feeble To understand how wide Beijing now casts its security net in Hong Kong, consider the case of Martin Lee.
