前六四领袖、现旅居美国的民运人士魏京生：“这种老手法在海外已经搞了几十年了，在China Town 花钱买几个糊里糊涂的老广，动手打民运人士，挑起事端，在香港我就估计他们迟早会来这一手，挑起事端，然后借口我们就要清场了，我们就要戒严了。”
CCP is Behind Anti-Occupy Central—Not Denied
Hong Kong’s media recently broke the news that
the anti-Occupy Central crackdown against protesters
had been plotted by Group 9 of the State Security,
who is in charge of Hong Kong’s affairs.
The group allegedly spends over 10-million yuan a day
to employ Hong Kong’s various triad members.
The liaison office of the Central People’s Government
in Hong Kong’s Special Administrative Region
has not yet come forward to refute the allegations.
Hong Kong’s Apple Daily quoted an informed source, saying
National Security’s Group 9 was behind Anti-Occupy Central
which used violence against the peaceful protesters;
Group 9 has offices in the Liaison Office.
National Security had contacted many Hong Kong triads
and paid them to make trouble, the source told Apple Daily.
Among the triads, Wo Shing Wo has been the most active
in recent events; Kwok Wing-hung and another member
were involved with Wo Shing Wo in the “Dinner Party”
scandal with Leung Chun Ying’s campaign team.
The source also revealed that involved leaders get paid
a stability maintenance of 200-300 thousand yuan a day.
Those who pretend to be either for or against Occupy Central
and mingle with activists are paid according to the activity;
holding up anti-Occupy Central banners earns 1,000 yuan for
every 3 hours, shouting slogans earns 2,000 yuan for 3 hours,
acting violently while wearing yellow or blue ribbons earns
5,000 yuan/day, getting media attention earns 10,000 yuan.
Last Friday and Saturday, at least 2,000 triad members
had participated in Causeway Bay and Mong Kok,
making the daily fee at least 10-million yuan, said the source.
Sin Chung-kai, Hong Kong Legislative Council member:
“Until today they have not refuted Apple Daily’s allegations.”
“The Hong Kong people absolutely do not accept that
the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) central government
uses triads through the Liaison Office to stir up fights.”
“Hong Kong’s chief executive is following the CCP’s orders;
in this most difficult time and those people occupying central
do not want to withdraw and are unwilling to bow to evil.”
“The Liaison Office’s interfering in Hong Kong’s affairs
by using triads is definitely not allowed."
Wei Jingsheng, former leader, 1989 Tiananmen movement,
and democracy activist in the U.S.: “They have been using
this old trick for decades—overseas, they hire people to beat
pro-democracy activists in China Town.”
“I guess they would use this trick in Hong Kong eventually,
stirring up trouble and then using it as an excuse to clear up
the fields and implement martial law.”
Apple Daily quoted Zhang Xiuxian, a Standing Committee
member of the Federations of Students, saying that the event
exposed the Liaison Office’s intervention with Hong Kong.
“It’s not only against the ‘One country, Two Systems’, rule,
but it even intervenes in local affairs.”
Since Oct. 3, underworld members have severely beaten
students, causing bloody conflicts that have led to at least
131 people being hospitalized.
They’ve even organized teams specifically to sexually assault
female students; CCTV interviewed some key attackers.
One so-called protestor who posed against Occupy Central
and who said that he would jump from a bridge, because
the activities impacted his daughter from going to school,
turned out to be a stuntman.
Another person against Occupy Central who promoted
“police and student as one family” was found to be a cop.
Gangster violence has caused the loss of control
and the police have issued a warning asking people involved
in Occupy Central to leave, while repeatedly using
pepper-spray to disperse protestors.
Soon after, Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying
gave a speech on television, asking people to clear the sites.
Wei Jingsheng:“If the CCP conducts another round of killing
like June 4, 1989, it would not be the same; I do not think
the CCP is wise or kind, but it should prevent violence
and intensification of contradictions if it is at all smart.”
Recently the public and media have found out that the police
repeatedly released triad members who attacked protestors.
The public have questioned the police of teaming with thugs,
however, the Security Bureau and the police have repeatedly
denied the allegations, although the police management level
have also reported their behavior to be unusual.
Zhang Xiuxian believes that the most important aspect of
the Occupy Central movement now is not whether the police
will clear the sites, but the personal safety of the participants;
the police hold total responsibility in this regard.
