As a non-Chinese, how do you feel about the 'Occupy Central ' movement of Hong Kong?
It is originaly an interesting initiative following Occupy Wall Street and the reflexions about the role and practices of the financial sector worldwide. Having this critical reflexion about the money business in HK is really needed as it is such a key piece of the global banking system.
Currently, the scope have shift from the global case of banking to the local case of Hongkongers protecting their own rights. By centering the actions against Beijing and the CCP, it fails to grasp the bigger picture and lower the political debate so it is now mostly lead by haters.
Hong Kong may be one of the most corrupted place in the world. Directing Occupy Central ‘s protesters hate towards Beijing looks like an easy trick to not face the real problems ongoing there.
