The wave of economic and social unrest continues in Hong Kong. The local business community is protesting Chinese (mainland) buyers. They say that the buyers from mainland China purchase products in bulk.
The youth is highly charged up and the wave of protest lingers on. The marchers blame that the buyers from China continue to invade, take advantage of lower prices, buy products in bulk and sell them back home at higher profits. This is not serving the locals one bit.
Hong Kong protests
The police have used batons and pepper spray to disrupt violent crowd who flocked in numbers to register their protest. But the protest hasn’t been a peaceful one. The demonstrations are highly violent and have forced officials to take precautionary measures.
Banners reading “strictly enforce the law and stop cross-border trade” are demonstrated by the protesters in Hong Kong. The local citizens blame and accuse Chinese tourists and traders of taking unnecessary advantages of lower prices. The local industry and business are believed to be suffering in the hands of tourists from mainland China.
The locals are resenting the extradition laws and calls for a change in them. The anti-extradition law protests are gaining momentum and even the youth including young ladies are singing and chanting slogans on the road in sheer agony, freight against the laws and the alleged abuse of it.
Hong Kong is administered by a non-democratically elected chief executive and he has not been able to resolve the grievances of the people. The city leader, Carrie Lam, has assured people of better job opportunities but the audience doesn’t pay any heed to his call.
