Hong Kong anti-government demonstrations escalate
Protesters in Hong Kong have added to their arsenal javelins and bows and arrows, in addition to bricks and petrol bombs as they clash with police armed with tear gas, water cannon, and live bullets, in violent standoffs now spilling into university campuses.

Some of the sharpest clashes have taken place at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, where police say protesters shot arrows dipped in gasoline and lit on fire, even using electric saws to target officers.

Marine police used a boat Wednesday to evacuate dozens of mainland Chinese students at their request from the CUHK campus, which remains barricaded by protesters preparing for more skirmishes.

Protests – now in their sixth month – have plunged Hong Kong into its worst political crisis ever, in a direct challenge to the authority of Xi Jinping, the leader of the Chinese Communist Party. ...

I don't think he's praising them any more, Mike wrote:
The city's current Beijing-backed chief executive, Carrie Lam, said her Government would "listen humbly" to the public after voters dealt a humiliating election setback to the political establishment she heads.

Key points:

•A record 71 per cent of registered people voted in the election
•Pro-democracy supporters said the Government must listen to voters
•A stand-off between protesters and police at a university continues....

excerpt from, "Hong Kong's democrats sweep local elections in snub to Beijing-backed establishment"

Thank goodness they stop the writing long enough to get the election done ❗👍

Yes we should have a biblical perspective on authority. So in your view, that means if the protesters do that which is good, Xi Jinping would praise them, for the Chinese Communist party chief is a minister of God to them for good.

Hong Kong police threatened on Monday to respond with live bullets if "rioters" used lethal weapons and committed other acts of violence, amid a standoff with protesters who have been hurling petrol bombs outside a university campus.
"Rioters continue to launch hard objects and petrol bombs with large catapults at police officers," police said in a statement.

"The shooting range of such large catapults can reach up to 40 metres ... Police warn that the violent activities in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have escalated to rioting."
"We are not afraid," said a year-three student Ah Long, who chose not to disclose his full name.

"If we don't persist, we will fail. So why not [go] all in?"...

Apparently the situation has evolved, DF. It's turned from a hymn sing to a knock-down, drag-out brawl. Read today that the pro-independence groups are now shooting bows and flaming arrows.

You'd have to think Communism is a valid form of government, rather than the criminal enterprise it is, to conclude the protests are anti- government

Does anyone remember the story posted here at SA about the protestors singing hymns? It made it seem like it was a Christian protest. I guess it really isn't, right?
Second, let's do a Reality Check: didn't these folk know that Big Changes were in store for them as the Chinese on the mainland took back the land that had always been 'theirs' except those International Masters, the British, got involved with opium in the area. Next thing you know, we had the Opium Wars and after that, Hong Kong was now a British colony. (please don't trust wikipedia to review any of these details, best to go to an old-fashioned library with encyclopedias you can look up).
