  1. Meanwhile 'We the People' of the US via their congress representatives have declared it a war crime against humanity to protest at the border wall against a brutal Israeli military occupation where people are shot & killed with live ammo every week after week after month.

  2. The parallel of Hong Kong and China to the US and GB circa 1775: Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America.

    — Thomas Jefferson, November 29, 1775

  3. They are terrorists now. Who is behind them? Terrorists must be stopped. HK police is too gentle. If this happens in US, American police would have fired real bullets and killed many of them. Violence to stop violence/terrorism – no other options.

  4. This is another testing ground for what is going to happen in the USA soon. The longer we let our leaders teach hate, we will not be able to help ourselves or anyone else

  5. If Beijing dares to invade Hong Kong than every nation in the world should give them the North Korean treatment. Cutting off all trades and money etc.

  7. Using momentum, unless Hong Kong proclaims independence of mainland
    China and seeks recognition as such and help from international
    community, it will be swallowed.

  9. Every one YOU see captured …will be ???? It's policed CHINA who would rather save their pudgy faces than have the old bat last step down…and these pudgy pesents have that Gaul to think they should be world power jesu

  10. Pro-democracy? Wearing mask in protest without permit? This is a crime if happens in Canada. Bill C-309
    Preventing Persons from Concealing Their Identity during Riots and Unlawful Assemblies Act.

  11. If California ask for independent by similar activity? No,it will never happen. Because we vote before this will happen. Their own affairs.
    If Ireland ask for independent by similar activity?let us vote,once and twice and forever, untile got independent.
    Hongkong?We have no way to vote. Then we will ask for independent. Until I have got the right to vote my little kitten. I feel good…

    To explain. Vote is a kind of stupid thing and confusing, most of the time means nothing. Vote never means democracy. That is not the reason to ask for independent. You know.

  12. If the protesters hate the government so much, they should just wrap their stuff and go wherever they like! If they choose to stay, better respect and follow the local laws, respect Millions of other innocent hard working and quiet Hong Kong people. Hope central government can send the military here ASAP, please bring our normal life back!

  13. There are a million muslims in concentration camps in China and the world doesn't care….why would the world care about Hong Kong

  14. It is so unfortunate that the US government is in its current state of paralysis. The people of Hong Kong could really do with assistance from the leaders of the free world right now.

  15. Shame and doubts on democracy , freedom ? Tell me which western countries allowing this happens ? I think only in China Hong Kong . …

  16. The irony is, HK has always been much freer than the US, despite its lack of democracy. People speak as if freedom and democracy were the same thing. At least in the US, exactly because of the legitimacy granted by the democratic process, the state is simply too powerful to leave any room for regular Joes. Before mindlessly congratulating yourself, remember Ferguson, Baltimore, NY, Seattle, …… the list goes on

  17. The CCCP is so corrupt and evil in both nature and in practice that everything up to and including Civil War is justified in stripping them of their power. The Chinese Communist Party is a stain on humanity and must be defeated. I STAND WITH FREEDOM! GO HONG KONG!

  18. NBC don’t want to talk about the journalist that got jumped by the protestors or the petrol bombs thrown by these terrorists. Stop it with the biased garbage news!

  19. ITs Time my Fellow American to take down Commies again and Help your Brothers and sisters of HUmanly against the Commies.

  20. If this kind of thing happens in the United States, when everyone bring out their weapons. Police weapons are not necessarily better than civilians.

  21. ź薪水7月份,八月12號還沒發,他們主任,總幹事都領到錢,保全人員都沒領到,8/12下午3點打電話去找主任,告之此事,他說關他屁事,

  22. All these protests started from the disputed extradition bill. To my understanding, Taiwan would never be enabled to sign in such agreement with HK because TWN has never been recognized as the policital entity as of the official name "Republic of China, Taiwan" by PRC and HK SAR. Not idological but practical, that's the practice about how to get official documents validated and legalized in Taiwan under the name of ROC. In short, it's politically impossible to enlist Taiwan, only mainland and Macau to be the choices for transportation, so where do you think it will be chosen to transport? Carrie Lam should be aware of this at the very beginning and deceiving her people since then disguised under the name of justice for that tragedy and poor victim of that coldblooded murder case. Too much blood already, of the protesters and policemen, whoever bled for her, time to stop. She should be condemned for fueling, sitting and watching her people bleeding for her political plot and responsible for all these unfortunate consequences.

  23. Without democracy, all political plots would be undertaken more viciously and maliciously. No one would deny the fact that democracy isnt the mighty medicine to cure all problems, but at least, to some extent, it brings the transparency, and bit more brainstorm less brainwash than the other political practices.

  24. The US needs to keep out of this, and I really hate that I’m saying this but on this issue we need to stay out because Hong Kong is an internal issue, let the Chinese deal with it it’s not our issue and it’s not our problem, BTW do not take what I’m saying as an endorsement of the Illegitimate regime occupying mainland China it’s not, I despise the Chinese Communist Party and the things they do, however at the same time it’s not a US issue it’s an internal affair so it’s none of our business!

  25. Many Hong Kong young people think that English is better than Chinese. How to prove that Chinese is a great language?

  26. Usa should remain out .it emplodes from inside .uigur tibet falobg christians hong kong will soon stand up

  27. China said go get some bamboo shoots and sit quiet in the corner and enjoy the shoots. But be careful of those very tiny hairs.

  28. HK must continue the monentumnto fight for their freedom. if they give up, they will loose everything . The police can stop 100 protesters, but they can not stop 1 millions. The entire HK populations of 8 millions should be on the street to fight for their freedom. The world are watching and supporting HK.

  29. The title: How The World Is Reacting To Hong Kong Protests

    The content: Only talks about how the U.S. react

    Fake news confirmed

  30. We support you, Hong Kong people! Please continue your blockade of the airport. Please stand strong!

  31. HK police must be given the authority to shot to defend themselves. Otherwise they're being fried and seen as weaklings and not restraint.
    How can police control safety if they cannot even defend themselves and even their police station are being attack with petrolbombs and they are still fighting back with rubbish bullets. Is this a joke? How safe is HK with such useless enforcement officer without power. Even with 2 millions police is useless if such restraint policy remains.
    Looking at the HK police is a Shame to all other countries enforcement unit. The authorities should empower them to enable them to do their duty.
