6th August 2019 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council held a media conference today for the 2nd time in the past 10 days to address the continuous violent clashes in the city. The spokesperson, Yang Guang expressed that the protests have evolved into bloody chaos in the city. The incessant destruction has gained momentum as extremists have been incited by the mastermind behind who works in cahoots with foreign powers.
Yang further condemned Next media owner Jimmy Lai for meeting up with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently. A local English media who is aligned to Apple Daily’s boss purportedly left out this important statement as it is allegedly an anti-establishment set up.
He then warned the mastermind that, ‘If you play with fire, you will burn yourself. Your judgment day is coming soon!’.
Yang said that the protests in Hong Kong have deviated from the original peaceful rallies, some radical protesters have been targeting specifically police officers using bricks, steel rods in the beginning before resorting to more offensive weapons lately such as molotov cocktails, bow and arrow, smoke grenades. Protesters even set fire at various rallies and incited others online to assault police officers with deadly tactics.
He stated that in the current situation, the front line is represented by the radical mobs and stuck in between are the deceived innocent civilians. He blamed the ‘Anti-China, Disrupt Hong Kong’ mastermind for fanning the state of affairs.
He further pointed that the perpetrators twisted facts and incited civilians to resort to violence in order for their agenda to be achieved. The entire society has been flung into a state of confusion as a result of this political tussle after numerous non-cooperation movements and excessive violent clashes took place in various parts of the city.
He again criticised the radical mobs for destroying the basic law of Hong Kong and some even defaced national emblem of the country and threw the National flag into the sea twice. Their irresponsible actions severely undermined the ‘One Country, Two System’ principle.
