@mydogisahusky Beijing is going to crack down on those people, I'm afraid. Shutting down the airport, which is a major shipping hub was a tactical mistake on part of the protestors. It will provoke an outsized response.

@TallTim @mydogisahusky it's even more infuriating that this might be a false flag...
Otoh, Beijing can't just send troops and smash it, this would be an utter disaster, including from domestic policy pov

@Sosthene @TallTim @mydogisahusky Yeah sending in military would just look bad. its not 1989 anymore.

@christinabahk @mydogisahusky @Sosthene I take no pleasure in pointing it out, and I agree. I just think that Xi's psychology won't allow a compromise.
