    So.. what's your passion about the matter? Do you have
    relatives there?

    It's a sad commentary that democracy cannot gain a foothold
    there. But there is absolutely no way that the CP will
    capitulate. The CP will simply continue to make things more
    and more difficult for the people of Beijing. The folks in HK
    won't have it much easier either.
