program “clarifying clearly".
One sponsor of Occupy Central Tai Yiu-ting responded at the
Admiralty rally main stage, “the government is out of control."

Scholars Wrote to Xi Jinping. Leung Chun-ying Destroyed
On Oct. 11, Hong Kong Federation of Students (HKFS) and
Scholarism wrote a public letter to Chinese Communist Party
(CCP) President Xi Jinping.
The letter criticized Leung Chun Ying for acting in opposition
to Xi Jinping’s “China dream must rely on the people to realize".

Legislative Council system reform at the first stages.
The false report resulted in today’s National Peoples Congress
Standing Committee (NPCSC) political reform framework.
The open letter also stressed that the Occupy Central is not
revolution color but Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.
The authorities don’t need to fear people electing their own
Hong Kong Chief Executive Central with confidence.
On the contrary, the genuine universal suffrage can really
reflect Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy.
On Oct. 12, Deputy Secretary General of HKFS Cen Aohui
said the open letter hopes the central officials don’t make the
movement a revolution or turmoil by misjudging the situation
because of rumor and let them know what students are doing.

pay to push
Cen Aohui’s words respond to a signed commentary in the
Oct. 11 People’s Daily Overseas Edition.
The comment, written by the researcher of the China Ministry
of Commerce Mei Xinyu, described the 15 days of Occupy
Central as a turmoil; and accused the United States and
Western forces of intervention.
The US State department responded to questions on Friday
by stating that officials “categorically reject accusations that
we are manipulating the activities of any person, group or
political party in Hong Kong".
Spokeswoman Marie Harf said, “what is happening there is
about the people of Hong Kong…
Any assertion otherwise is an attempt to distract from the
issue at hand, which is the people expressing their desire for
universal suffrage in an election that provides a meaningful
choice of candidates representative of their own voters’ will."
