Ahead of the second上海千花网f the bill in the Legis

 the Legislative Council, the protests escalated.

On June 15, Hong Kong leader Lam suspended the bill. The next da上海千花网

y, Lam apologized and offered to “accept all criticism” and “serve the public”.

But the demonstrations did not stop.

上海千花网女神会所Paul Yeung, a Hong Kong-based researcher and commentator on public policy, said the protests against the extradi

tion bill have morphed into demonstrations against the local government’s manner of responding to pub

lic opinion. Thus the protests are continuing, though the bill has been declared “dead”, he said.

Some observers say many y上海千花网oung people who took to the streets were merely affected b

y peer influence, instigated by a small number of radicals, and lost their critical thinking and simply followed.

Yeung said another factor leading to the situation in Hong Kong is that the government上海千花网女神会所

has failed to respond in a timely manner to young people’s aspirations and sentiments throughout the process.

上海千花网He said channels that the Hong Kong government is to establ

ish to communicate with local people can help break the city’s current deadlock.

But he said it will be a difficult task, given the tense social atmosphere. “It is imperative to restore peace and r上海千花网

ationality to society, with both sides showing a willingness to compromise before dialogue,” he added.

Hong Kong was a British colony for more than 150 years, and p上海千花网女神会所

art of it, Hong Kong Island, was ceded to the United Kingdom after a war in 18

42. In 1898, China also leased the rest of Hong Kong-the New Territories-to the British for 99 years.

上海千花网Hong Kong returned to China in 1997, under the principle of “one country

, two systems”, which means Hong Kong is part of China and enjoys a high degree of a

utonomy, except in foreign and defense affairs, as stipulated by Hong Kong’s Basic Law.上海千花网女神会所

Hong Kong’s leader, the chief executive, is currently elected by a 1,200-member election committee.

What’s happening in 上海乌托邦e world next week

Chinese officials and experts have urged politicians in the United States to stop using the situat

ion in Hong Kong as a bargaining chip for negotiations or as leverage for fueling competition with Beijing.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Senior politicians such as US Vice-President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pel

osi have spoken out on or pushed legislation concerning the recent violent protests in the city.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Pence angered China on Monday by telling the Detroit Economic Club that “for the Un

ited States to make a deal with China”, Beijing needs to “respect the integrity of Hong Kong’s laws”.

上海乌托邦”Our administration will continue to urge Beijing to act in a humanitarian manner,” Pence added.

In response, the Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner’s Office in the Hong Kong Special A

dministrative Region said on Tuesday that China resolutely opposes any country attempting to “take Hong Kong’s s上海乌托邦

tability and prosperity as well as the well-being of more than 7 million Hong Kong residents as a bargaining chip”.

“Do not daydream about China making a deal using its territorial sovereignty and national reunification,” an unnamed spokesperson上海乌托邦品茶微信

said in a statement, calling for a halt to intervention in China’s domestic affairs, including Hong Kong affairs.

On Aug 6, Pelosi said in a written statement that “the extraordinary outpourin

上海乌托邦品茶微信g of courage from the people of Hong Kong stands in stark contrast to a cowardly government”, and she reite

rated her call for suspending “future sales of munitions and crowd control equipment to the Hong Kong police force”.

Although congenital heart diseases are usually identified and treated very e

had not been diagnosed previously due to a lack of access to health care services, Gu said.

“Though the diagnosis was free, many of the children recommended by local Red Crescent bran上海千花坊女神会所

上海千花网品茶微信es because there is “little understanding of China among Japanese people”.

“Nowadays, more Chinese people have come to know Japan through tourism and education, but that is not the case for Japa

IMF report shows a pattern of stability that undercuts US charge against China 

China’s stance that it did not manipulate its currency is based on solid ground, and the country’s f上海千花网品茶微信

Police will strictly enforc上海419ng Kong Special Admi

ministrative Region (HKSAR) government and police have condemned illegal assemblies by protesters in Ko

上海419品茶微信wloon and the New Territories and said that police will strictly enforce the law against all violent and illegal acts.

The HKSAR said on Saturday that protesters who breach the law should be brought to justice, while the police reiter上海419

ated on early Sunday that anyone participating in an unauthorized assembly will be committing an offence.

A large group of protesters gathered in Tai Po on Friday although their request of such an event had been turned down by the police.

上海419品茶微信They damaged public properties and blocked thoroughfares including the K

owloon entrance of the Cross-Harbor Tunnel, and they also set fires in various places.

According to the police, some protesters aimed laser beams at police officers and some even hurled objects and stones at police officers.

After repeated warnin上海419gs, the police dispersed the protesters, sometime using tear gas when necessary.

During the operation, HKSAR police arrested 16 people for unlawful assembly, possession of offe

上海419nsive weapon, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Friday that the yuan’s exchange r

ate was “broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals” and China’s central bank “has had little foreign exch上海419品茶微信

ange interventions in recent years”, a conclusion that clarifies China’s innocence from currency manipulation.

The IMF said that the country’s external position in 2018 was “broadly in li

上海419ne with the level consistent with medium-term fundamentals and desirable policies”.

The organization also welcomed China’s efforts to reform its exchange rate regime to make the yuan more fle

xible, according to its report released after its latest Article IV consultation with China that concluded on July 31.上海419品茶微信

The clarification by the IMF indicates that the US Treasury’s reckless claim on Mon

day of China engaging in currency manipulation is nothing but unfounded finger-pointing.
