No idea where things go from here. About 20% of the population is involved in the protests and things have gotten much more violent in the last week.
The original cause was to stop an extradition law that would enable people to be sent to mainland china. Extradition is off the table, but the protests continue.
The argument that control of HKIX means the HK government can shutdown the Internet is irrelevant because they can shut that down through the telcos at any time. However it does make it easier for them to monitor people's Internet behavior.
CUHK apparently handles 99 percent of the Hong Kong’s Internet traffic, which seems to have been a factor in the police focus on that campus.
It got ugly, but the protestors didn't really stand a chance. They were surrounded and running out of supplies.
The HK police stormed the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Trump's response to Roger's conviction:
"So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?...."
While the dims are celebrating their victory over Roger Stone's conviction, you've got to wonder how this plays to all the lying the dims have been doing.
Stone is a long term friend of DJT. If he can be convicted for lying what happens when the dims are in court?
Sentencing is Feb 6.
In the early 90’s, I worked for an international consulting firm and our largest client was USAID. Everything about this is true. There’s been corruption in foreign aid for years. The U.S. taxpayer has been the world’s piggy bank, and they pay us back with disrespect and “death to America”.
"The thing that baffles me the most is that Epstein was a smart motherfucker. The fact that he didn’t have a dead man switch setup (that we know of yet) is mind boggling."
It's a measure of how evil the leading Dems are that they sold their own kids up the river.
Kerry, Biden, Clinton, Pelosi.
The strategy was to deflect attention and create plausible deniability, effectively using their own children as 'mules' who would launder the dirty money on their parents behalf.
Sure the kids aren't angels, but how disgusting and evil are their own parents.
They made one fatal mistake:
'They thought she'd never lose'
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
