Hong Kong Police Used Pepper Spray Again
on Protestors of Occupy Central
Oct. 14 is 17 days since the Hong Kong Occupy Central
The police removed the barriers at Causeway and Lung Wo
Road of Admiralty during the day.
In the evening hundreds of rallying students and demonstrators
moved the iron horse to the vehicle tunnel at Lung Wo Road.
The police used pepper spray to disperse the demonstrators
again, which made the scene chaotic.
At 11:00pm, all police were withdrawn at the Lung
Wo Road near the Chief Executive’s Office.
The demonstrators reoccupied Lung Wo Road completely,
and set up a new roadblock.
No Concessions to The Hong Kong Protest
On Oct. 14, Reuters reported that Chinese Communist Party
(CCP) senior officials believe in no compromise this time.
They already gave in a lot in the past days according to them.
They will send military to suppress protestors only when
there is widespread chaos.
The Reuters report quoted three sources; the decision was
taken at the CCP National Security Council meeting this month.
The sources said that by doing so the CCP avoids the
precedent for mainland reform.
A CCP insider who is familiar with Beijing policy to Hong
Kong told Reuters, Beijing is worried that the concession
will generate a domino effect on the democratic appeal in
Tibet, Xinjiang and other mainland places.
This can make the dam collapse.
Banned Authors’ Books Now Sought After
Recently, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) banned a
group of scholars and writers.
They were banned for their remarks in support of the
Hong Kong democratic protest.
On Oct. 14, the Wall Street Journal reported that the CCP’s
ban boosted those blacklisted authors.
Netziens discussed how to get copies of the
banned writers’ books.
Online book retailer Dangdang set up a discount
web page to make the works widely available.
One Netzien posted on Webio, “these days, smothering
someone is as good as crowning that person—previously
unnoticed but now many people are interested in his views
and works. A ‘smothering’ order is a reading list."
The Wall Street Journal posted that the allegedly blacklisted
writers are the economist Mao Yushi, column writer Xu
Zhiyuan, Chinese-American historian Yu Ying-shih and
media personality Leung Man-tao.
