Currently there is a massive demonstration in Hong Kong. Two million strong are protesting a new law, since suspended but not rescinded, that will allow for the extradition of Hong Kongers to the mainland. If this POWDER KEG gets out of hand we may see another Tienanmen Square.
However, Chinese authorities are watching this with a jaundiced eye. Spreading to the mainland is one thing they can’t afford. A billion people in revolt is akin to a nuclear reaction, very difficult to stop.
