  • Mr You Wenze spokesman for the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People's Congress said that some US politicians have glorified violent crimes in Hong Kong as protests for human rights and freedom

"And now some of the real leaders have been arrested by the police".

Congress also has the power to pass legislation affecting Hong Kong's relationship with the USA in ways that could further erode the territory's reputation for stability and rule of law. One professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong says the protesters have already won a victory of sorts.

In Beijing, You Wenze, a spokesman for China's ceremonial legislature, condemned statements from U.S. politicians supportive of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement.

"We have started our rallies very peacefully but after two and a half months it seems that the Hong Kong government has not responded to our five demands so one thing leads to another and it may cause escalation", the speaker, named Wang, said.

"Then they proposed a compromise, which was to have me write a letter of guarantee to ensure that I do not Hong Kong during this time", Lai said, adding that he had agreed to this after some consideration.

Initially triggered by opposition to a planned extradition law, the protests have evolved into a wider movement for democratic reforms.

Accusations of police brutality have been growing lately, after a female volunteer medic was shot in the right eye, reportedly by rubber bullets, during clashes between police and protesters on August 11. Recently, President Trump urged Chinese President Xi Jinping to meet with protesters to find a middle ground to end the demonstrations.

"This is not just for the issue of our own freedom, it's also for human dignity", Ng said.

Hong Kong's 11th Week of Unrest Culiminates in Large Rally
Isaac Cheng Ka Long, vice chairman of the pro-democracy party Demosisto, said that it is organizing a mass student strike to further advance the movement.

The United States has also called for dialogue.

It said China was hoping Hong Kong's internal forces were able to restore order with the support of the central government, but said "strong intervention" from China would be the only choice if Hong Kong is unable to do so. The student has since been released.

Twitter, which is blocked in mainland China, has been caught running ads paid for by China's state-run news agency, Xinhua, condemning the Hong Kong protests, reports Business Insider.

He has not specifically expressed being in favor of the protests but has expressed amazement by the number of protesters and has emphasized that he supports "liberty" and "democracy". It's basic human rights. The Washington Post reported in January that approximately 10 million Chinese citizens actively user Twitter via VPN, but it has become a valuable tool for criticism of the countries Communist regime. "America hears the people of Hong Kong".

Their goal, it said, was to "sow political discord" in the territory and to "undermine the legitimacy and political positions" of the pro-democracy protesters who have brought one of the world's major financial centres to a standstill.

A canopy of umbrellas hangs over the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Long on Sunday.

The police should not issue an objection for the event if they can "understand that they will have a hard time preventing citizens from joining the protest", CHRF stated on its Facebook page.
