Hong Kong - Featured image 1

Hong kongKong was a lovely place until chinaChina started ruling Hong kong it was place there was democracy and love they were all very nice to each other even Hong Kong was nice to China but ever since China started ruling them they have stopped being a democracy and they have started getting very angry at China because they made a promise with britian that they would keep it a democracy and they broke that promise that they made. So now there is now riots happening in hong kong because hong kong is getting angry at china so they are protesting on the streets of hong kong.

ThusThis us what us happening on the streets today and maybe even at night time. On the streets people are being shot with rubber bullets and some people are getting hurt by the bullets and a steam capsule with gas in the inside of it. The Chinese police are going over to Hong kong and blokingblocking the streets because the people of hong kong are shouting on the streets and going down all of the street protesting so china are getting angry about that and people are thinking that the Chinese politians are going to send in the army from china.

      Democratic development in Hong Kong has been a major issue since the transfer of sovereignty to China in 1997. The one country, two systems principle allows the Hong Kong government to administer all areas ofgovernment except foreign relations and (military) defence separately from the national Chinese government. Many Hong Kong citizens became concerned about democratic development when the first Chief executive of Hong Kong Tung Chee-hwa appeared to have mishandled this issue. Other democracy-related issues involving human rights and universal suffrage (in this case the right to elect Hong Kong leaders through general elections under universal suffrage with no curtailment from the central government of China) became the new focal point for the pro-democracy camp. Ever since the 1950s, the Chinese government has continually threatened the British over any attempts to bring about democratic development in Hong Kong. Attempts to bring Hong Kong citizens to the negotiating table by the British during the Sino-Anglo discussions were rejected by Beijing in the late 1980s. The last governor Chris Patten faced a great deal of opposition in changing the former colony's political system.

      Since the election of CY Leung as Chief Executive in 2012, democratic development has come to a halt. The Umbrella Revolution was triggered by students disaffected by the continued stalling by Beijing, and particularly the pronouncement of the NPCSC on 31 August 2014 that said Hong Kong had to accept an electoral process for the Chief Executive in 2017 in which up to three candidates would be pre-approved by the Election Committee – an electoral college widely seen to be loyal to Beijing authorities.

        Thank you for the info, loyal_peach, but it's best to read and then pick out information you think is most relevant, and put into your own words, and better still, speak up with an opinion of your own about it.
