Hong Kong People demand universal suffrage; ChiComs threaten PLA intervention

NYT:

Occupy Central is a civil disobedience campaign ... to push for universal suffrage to choose the city’s leader in elections due in 2017. Hong Kong’s leader is now selected by an elite committee of about 1,200 people, many of them tycoons and others that Beijing considers friendly. “Occupy Central with Love and Peace,” to use the movement’s entire name, plans to organize thousands of people to occupy the Central district of Hong Kong or another part of the city, probably in July next year. Mr. Chan says he believes he could go to jail for staging such a major obstruction of the business heart of the city.

...

“We don’t want to overthrow the government. We just want a democratic system in Hong Kong. We are not interested in ending Communist rule in China,” he said. “To me, Hong Kong is mature enough to have democracy. But in China we need to build a civil society first,” said Mr. Chan.

South China Morning Post:

A new group set up two weeks ago has emerged as the leading force against Occupy Central, launching aggressive attacks on the pro-democracy campaign.

One of its convenors warned yesterday that the planned acts of civil disobedience could lead to "anarchy" and "intervention by the People's Liberation Army".

I'm sad. Democratic rumours have been going on since the Brits left.

I wish HKSAR would be just that, a SAR. In Full.

It seems so simple, really, but what's what?

The Coms in China love the monies given over in bribes, and The Honkees (much to their detriment) have established a pattern of paying the bribes.

IMO, stop the bribes back to BeiJing, keep yer monies for bullets and TOWs and SAMs . So what if the PLA is sent in? The Guangdong Province PLA are just a bunch of drunks, anyway..
