Hong Kong (15/11). Let’s start with the Elephant in the room. Black is his colour. Black Bloc is his name. In the recent interview with Deutsche Welle the spokesperson for several rioting student unions in Hong Kong Joey Siu was interviewed by the experienced journalist Tim Sebastian who issued this stark warning,
“If Hong Kong’s pro-democratic movement imaged it had the unqualified support from the international community it better thinks again. The British government has slammed what it calls, a hard core of demonstrators warning their violence is unacceptable and had to stop.”
Joey Siu reply is deeply disturbing and displays all the hallmark of an extremist movement. Like any other terror groups Siu wraps the justification for violence into a childish narrative of justified self-defence.
