...rubber bullets, tear gas, hand grenades. These are only a few of the things that are being used in the Hong Kong protests. As you can imagine, this is very dangerous and a risk to people living in Hong Kong. They are at risk of their life yet people are still doing it. You might ask, why? That is what this post is about.
Probably, you know why the protests in Hong Kong are happening. If you don't, it is because of a new law being put in saying that anyone in Hong Kong who needs to be questioned about a crime will be put to trial in China. Obviously, HongKongers were angry about this as if someone, who wasn't even guilty, was thought to have commited a crime would have to be sent to China and there was no point as they could have been put on trial in Hong Kong. But why are the so violent?: this is why.
The protests are now not just about the new law. They are about having their human rights not respected and about China not following the one country, two systems agreement and they are getting into Hong Kong business, which they have a policy of not doing. But all this is the wrong thing to do. China are becoming more stubborn and more angry and if Hong Kong continue like they are doing, will refuse completely and will definitely not give them their freedoms and rights back - in short, Hong Kong should stop. They need to be peaceful and tell China what they want as it will only get worse.
