The Hong Kong police are firing live rounds at the protesters, and at least one protester has been shot. The police are escalating their response, but the paramilitary police arm of the PLA has not been deployed...yet. The ultimate crackdown has not begun. Will the protesters back down now that they risk being shot for real? They haven't so far. https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/politics/article/3031044/chaos-expected-across-hong-kong-anti-government-protesters #news #protests #HongKong #China #Beijing

Will the protesters attempt a major demonstration on October 1? That would be a huge slap in the face to President Xi, it being the anniversary date of the founding of the People's Republic Of #China. It could force matters to a resolution one way or another. It is unlikely at the moment, but a significant misstep by President Xi could topple his Presidency, which would send trade talks with the US into chaos. Or the protesters could choose to do nothing, to avoid provoking a disproportionate response. That also seems unlikely, unless the protesters are on the verge of giving up (of which there has been no sign so far). The next steps in Hong Kong could be quite consequential, even beyond China's borders. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-hongkong-protests/hong-kong-police-expect-violent-attack-on-sensitive-chinese-anniversary-idUSKBN1WF00Z #news #HongKong #protests #Beijing
