That sucks :(

This is totally overdone, people have lost their self containment and is very radical too.

Man those bad nuts are shutting the city’s important gate infrastructures down (i.e. MTR, Buses, and now HKIA), and what’s more important than keeping the region moving?

Sounds really bad over there in HKG…

To sum it up from CNN…

  • All flights grounded: All departing flights have been cancelled in Hong Kong, as thousands of demonstrators descend on the city’s International Airport.
  • Alleged police brutality: A small number of protesters have been demonstrating at the airport all weekend, but today’s mass gathering was sparked by allegations of unnecessary police violence on Sunday.

Sheesh, I hate when government politics swiftly jump into to the aviation industry and ruin the safest mode of transportation!

Wow! That is so cool. Look at all the people

Agreed, but I don’t feel a need that this had to happen at the airport. That’s what I’m saying. I have nothing about the protests, I hate the fact that due to something, all flights had to be grounded.

Alright boy, look if you didn’t watch the news a enormous mob of protesting students, after the YL assaults have protested around many other MTR stations last Monday so people can’t go to work and more stores had to shut down. Tell me why that’s significant.

Hookay this is gonna get ugly reaaaal fast. My suggestion is unless you really know what’s going on over here, you stay quiet. We are fighting for the future of our freedom and our city, and it’s a much much much bigger issue than you might think. Read about it elsewhere if you want.

香港人加油💪
