The 5-month old Hong Kong protests were initially triggered by a bill allowing extradition to mainland China. The bill was withdrawn in September, but anti-government demonstrations continue. Over the past week, Hong Kong authorities have fought with students at various universities. Police raided the occupation of Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) by protesters, and some of them battled against police with petrol bombs, bricks, arrows and other weapons. Police were authorized to used live rounds on students using lethal weapons. Some 600 students have walked off campus, due to ill-health and hypothermia after being blasted by water cannons, giving themselves up to police; they face 10 years in prison for protesting. Another 100 demonstrators remain inside, surrounded by police.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was another focal point of conflict with the police. CUHK hosts the Hong Kong Internet Exchange (HKIX) that allows users to exchange information locally without routing through any other country. Communists in Beijing can either shut down the internet or monitor internet communications if it takes control of HKIX.

After a three-day standoff, roughly 100 students remain trapped inside the campus of Hong Kong’s Polytechnic University. For more than a day, police have had the campus surrounded, and have warned protesters that there’s only one way out – in handcuffs.
Despite a potential 10-year prison sentence (laws against rioting, which are being applied to the protesters, carry heavy penalties), some 600 students have already walked off campus into the waiting arms of police. Some surrendered because they were in ill-health after hypothermia set in. Of the 600 who left, 400 were above the age of 18 and were immediately arrested, while the 200 minors were stopped, then sent home. They could still face charges pending further investigation, the NYT reported.

California passed a law, SB 394, that is optional in each county, and allows diversion for lawbreakers, instead of jail, for primary caregivers of minor children under certain circumstances.

As long as individuals are required by law to pay into a system not of their choosing and without an option to leave, corruption will flourish and pensions will suffer. When coercion enters, virtue and excellence leave. The people of France are headed into a long conflict in which both of their options are doomed.
No violence occurred. Thank God our fears were unfounded that the Deep State might throw a few mind-controlled zombies into the crowd posing as Nazis or white supremacists to kill some innocent bystanders so the press could go bananas over the alleged need for gun confiscation.

No one in these companies has claimed that any of this will reduce global warming to any appreciable degree. It’s all about making money, increasing taxes, and controlling people in the name of a supposedly good cause. It’s a great business for con artists.
