4 masked intruders dressed in black set a fire at the printing press of the #HongKong edition of @EpochTimes in the early hours of Nov. 19, marking the 4th attack to the facility since its opening more than a decade ago. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/masked-intrude…
The incident took place around 3:40AM, as the staff there were about to send off newly printed newspapers to the stands.

Moments after staff opened the factory door, 4 masked men walked into the facility and pointed batons towards the workers, shouting: “all of you don’t move!”
Surveillance footage shows 2 of the men dressed in all black carrying batons, while one of them holds newspapers, and another carries two containers containing a flammable liquid, which he poured onto the factory machines and newspapers.

“The Chinese miracle is over.”

In a wide-ranging conversation, top radio talk show hosts and senior @EpochTimes staff provided context to an audience of media professionals about some of the most important headlines regarding #China. theepochtimes.com/the-chinese-mi…
John @batchelorshow, a talk show host on WABC in New York, said the #TradeWar has highlighted how “China’s business model is broken.”

US #Tariffs have taught companies they can move their supply chains out of #China, without being subject to unfair trade practices.
@batchelorshow Tom @sullivanradio of #TalkMedia Network said he’s spoken with #Farmers and residents in the heartland states most affected by #China’s retaliatory #Tariffs on US #Agricultural products; they support President Trump tackling the #Chinese regime’s trade policies.

I think it will be more comprehensible for most #HongKongers to read in Chinese.

And I am happy to elaborate my ideas here if it is necessary.

wow! #HongKongers calling for international help to #StandWithHongKong and join the worldwide march on 9.29

#HongKong #HongKongProtest
Police banning a march again and again? #HongKongers will not be deterred to speak out again and again.
#HongKongers really don't give a damn whether there is @hkpoliceforce's "permission" to march, you can't silence the voices by suppression. This is Hong Kong, not in mainland China.

A huge factor in this refusal to be tyrannized is the historical make-up of the HK populatn - we are mostly descended from ppl who overcame great hardships to flee from Communist China during their repressive purges & econ collapses to settle in the safe haven that was British HK
2/ Not only did this historical fact distinguished #Hongkongers from other countries & cultures, it also distinguishes us from Communist Mainland in our desire to maintain our traditional Chinese cultural heritage in an environment that allowed us to the freedom to do so. That...
3/That was what was truly remarkable about British Hongkong --as ethnic Chinese our traditional culture was not being supplanted or eradicated by a coloniser as the British had done in other parts of its Empire, but was actually given the space to grow and thrive. There wasl...

Ever since #HongKong's protests began, I often got asked why the city's tycoons have stayed silent.

Today, HK's richest man Li Ka-shing has published two separate msgs on front pages newspapers across political spectrum.

Here are some interpretation on the 91-yo's wisdom:
The colour msg is more direct. It says “violence” with a cross through it, flanked by slogans calling for loving China and HK, and “stop anger and violence in the name of love”.
What not to miss is that it also says "the worst fruit [result] could be bore from the best cause".
The black-and-white msg is what left people guessing. It begins with: "As I have said before", & 8 Chinese characters: “The melon of Huangtai cannot bear the picking again.”

Li has used this line in addressing contentious political issues before. This is the story behind it:

I think Hong Kong’s protesters need a wee hearts and minds campaign. But seriously, how can anyone not love them? Look at this AMAZING supply chain they set up on Monday night 🙌
These lines involved hundreds of people, running for hundreds of metres, using only shouts and hand signals to convey supplies. How can you not adore them!
Supplies were being sent in for HOURS

I grew up in South London in the Thatcher years. There was a lot of hostility towards the police. When I moved to #HongKong in the early 90s, I was struck by the genial relations between people and the police. They were generally liked and respected 1/
#HongKong people were proud that their police force was not like the Public Security Bureau of China. There were always bad eggs but generally, the force was considered clean and professional. People trusted them 2/
I covered and attended many protests over the years. In the past they were almost always peaceful and there was little aggro from the police. This began to change in the CYLeung years as Beijing tightened the screws and society became more polarised 3/
