The celebrations to mark the 22nd anniversary of the founding of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as well as its image as Asia’s World City were
上海品茶微信marred by a large mob of anti-government protestors who stormed and vandalized the Legislative Council complex in Admiralty.
It was a watershed moment for the SAR, as it let the world see who is upholding the rule of law and other core values of Hong Kong society and who is trying to undermine them.上海品茶微信女神会所
But as well as the shocking rampage on Monday, in which a roused rabble broke into Hong Kong’s legislature and defaced the portraits

As a matter of fact, the anger among many of those resorting to violence has been inflamed by opposition lawmakers’ rude
上海品茶微信女神会所behavior inside the legislative chamber over the years and they have been emboldened in their unruliness. Now
these politicians do not have the courage to acknowledge their responsibility for the monster they have fostered and unleashed.
While the opposition camp has remained tight-lipped over the eruption of violence by those whose growing temerity they have helped to上海品茶微信女神会所
nurture, law-abiding Hong Kong residents have been horrified by such a brazen challenge to Hong Kong’s law and order.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said she hopes the wider Hong Kong community will com

illegal actions that undermine Hong Kong’s rule of law and social order and harm the fundamental interests of its residents.
That is why the Commissioner’s Office of the Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR issued a statement on Tuesday denouncing foreign
interference in Hong Kong affairs and demanding those Western governments stop fanning political unrest in Hong Kong.

ngsu province, said that apart from the economic recovery underpinned by su
pportive policies, cyclical factors also imply that earnings growth will continue to recover in the rest of the year.

ings growth, a determinant of the market trend, is likely to be on the recovery path,” Yan said in a note.
