Hong Kong protesters clash with riot police


DEVELOPMENT IN HONG KONG WHICH I MUST GET TO OUR VIEWERS. THAT IS LIVE PICTURES THERE, HONG KONG PROTESTERS BURSTING THROUGH. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT? ASHLEY: ACTUALLY ATTEMPTING TO STORM THE AIRPORT IN AN EFFORT TO GET THE PROTESTERS OUT. THERE YOU CAN SEE SOME SCUFFLES. WE UNDERSTAND A WITNESS IS TELLING REUTERS THE RIOT POLICE MANAGED TO PUSH BACK SOME PROTESTERS AT THE AIRPORT. THIS IS AN ONGOING SITUATION. AS YOU KNOW, THESE PROTESTS AT THE AIRPORT HAVE SHUT DOWN FLIGHTS FOR TWO DAYS IN A ROW, NONE COMING IN, NONE GOING OUT. WE WERE WONDERING AT WHAT POINT DO AUTHORITIES TRY TO TAKE CHARGE OF THE SITUATION. WELL, APPARENTLY IN THE LAST FEW MINUTES, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. RIOT POLICE GETTING INTO THE AIRPORT, TRYING TO GET PROTESTERS OUT. AS YOU CAN SEE, IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT PROCESS. STUART: THE CONFRONTATION WAS EXPECTED. ASHLEY: YES. STUART: SHUTTING DOWN THE AIRPORT HAS SEVERE CONSEQUENCES FOR HONG KONG AND FOR CHINA AS WELL. IT WAS EXPECTED THAT AT SOME POINT, ACTION WOULD BE TAKEN TO STOP THIS STOPPAGE OF THE AIRPORT AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT IS UNDER WAY AS WE SPEAK. ASHLEY: WE UNDERSTAND FROM HONG KONG AIRPORT THAT THE POLICE HAVE WITHDRAWN AFTER THIS FIRST ATTEMPT. STUART: REALLY? ASHLEY: YES. STUART: FASCINATING. SO IF THEY HAVE WITHDRAWN — ASHLEY: THEY AREN’T GOING AWAY BUT THE FIRST WAVE OF TRYING TO GET THESE PROTESTERS OUT. STUART: WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS TODAY REGARDING CHINA, AMERICA AND HONG KONG, IT IS AS FOLLOWS. ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF AGO, WE RECEIVED WORD THAT WE WERE GOING TO DELAY THE IMPOSITION OF TARIFFS ON A WIDE RANGE OF CHINESE PRODUCTS UNTIL DECEMBER 15th. THAT’S SOME BREATHING SPACE. THIS WAS A WIDE RANGE OF PRODUCTS FROM VIDEO GAMES, TOYS, COMPUTERS, FOOTWEAR, YOU NAME IT, A VAST SWATCH OF PRODUCTS MADE IN CHINA WOULD NOT BE SUBJECT TO TARIFFS AT LEAST UNTIL DECEMBER 15th. THAT WAS SEEN AS VERY MUCH A CALMING MOVE IN THE CHINA/U.S. TRADE TALKS AND THE RESULT WAS A VERY STRONG STOCK MARKET RALLY. NOW LITERALLY MOMENTS AGO, IN HONG KONG, THE POLICE HAVE ATTEMPTED TO GET RID OF THE DEMONSTRATORS, PUSH THEM OUT, FORCEFULLY OUT OF HONG KONG’S AIRPORT — ASHLEY: PROTESTERS THROWING OBJECTS AT THE RIOT POLICE, OR RIOT POLICE RESPONDING WITH PEPPER SPRAY. THEY APPARENTLY HAVE NOW JUST WITHDRAWN FROM THE INITIAL PART OF THE AIRPORT AND — STUART: GENE MUNSTER STILL WITH US. GENE, I WANT TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT BECAUSE I KNOW YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THIS. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE IMPACT OF WHAT’S GOING ON NOW IN HONG KONG AND THE CHINA TRADE TALKS?>>STUART, WHAT WE’RE SEEING IN HONG KONG IS KIND OF ONE OF THE THREE LEGS TO THIS DISPUTE MORE BROADLY. WE HAVE WHAT’S GOING ON IN CHINA AND MAINLAND CHINA MANAGING THAT SITUATION. WE HAVE THE TRADE DISPUTE AND THEN SEPARATELY, WE HAVE NATIONAL SECURITY THAT GETS PULLED INTO THE TRADE CONVERSATION AROUND HUAWEI. THESE ARE THREE DISTINCT PIECES BUT THEY ALL ARE INTERRELATED AS YOU ARE DISCUSSING. I THINK THE SIMPLE TAKE-AWAY IS THIS. WHAT WE ARE SEEING TODAY IN HONG KONG IS REPRESENTATIVE OF A VERY COMPLICATED EQUATION BETWEEN THOSE THREE VERTICALS. THIS IS GOING TO TAKE MORE TIME THAN INVESTORS I THINK WOULD LIKE FOR IT TO SORT ITSELF OUT, TO REALLY MOVE FORWARD. WE ARE SEEING SOME RELIEF IN THE MARKET TODAY BUT I JUST WANT TO REALLY ENCOURAGE INVESTORS TO HAVE CLEAR-HEADED THINKING BECAUSE WE WILL HAVE WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THIS MINUTE IN HONG KONG AIRPORT, AND THEN THAT WILL BE WHETHER SOME TALKS IN THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS AND IF WE THINK FAST FORWARD OVER THE NEXT YEAR, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE THESE UPS AND DOWNS, AND THE SIMPLE TAKE-AWAY IS THIS, STUART, IS FOR INVESTORS TO HAVE CLEAR-HEADED THINKING AND NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN WHAT I WOULD CALL IDLE SPECULATION ABOUT WHAT THE IMPACT IS. THE IMPACT IS PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD. THE U.S. AND CHINA ARE BOTH LONG-TERM STRONG ECONOMIES AND I THINK THAT THEY ULTIMATELY WILL POWER THROUGH THIS WHAT I WILL CALL A YEAR OF TRADE DISPUTE. STUART: AT THIS MOMENT, THERE HAS BEEN NO SIGNIFICANT REACTION ON THE STOCK MARKET TO THIS MOVE BY THE POLICE IN HONG KONG TO GET THE PROTESTERS OUT OF THE AIRPORT. BY THE WAY, AS ASHLEY POINTS OUT, WE DO HAVE REPORTS, THERE’S THE VIDEO OF THE POLICE WITHDRAWING. PULLING OUT OF THE AIRPORT. THEY MADE AN INITIAL ATTEMPT TO CLEAR IT. THEY WERE MET WITH SOME SIGNIFICANT RESISTANCE. WE SAW SOME PROTESTERS THROWING STUFF RIGHT THERE. NOW LOOK AT THAT, THERE YOU HAVE IT, THE POLICE ARE WITHDRAWING. NOW, THEY’RE NOT GOING AWAY COMPLETELY. THEY ARE WITHDRAWING TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING, BUT WITHDRAWING THEY ARE. NO RESPONSE ON THE MARKET. WHEN WE FIRST STARTED SHOWING THIS VIDEO, WHEN THE FIRST REPORTS CAME ACROSS OF HONG KONG, THE DOW WAS UP ABOUT 360, 370. WELL, NOW IT’S UP 350 AND THE S&P IS HOLDING UP 38 AND THE NASDAQ IS HOLDING UP 122. SO FOR ONCE, THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE IN HONG KONG, AND I WILL CALL THAT VIOLENCE, HAS NOT HAD A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE MARKET. IN FACT, WHAT HAS HAD A POSITIVE IMPACT VERY CLEARLY IS THE DELAY

  1. Chinese troops should be in Hong Kong before long. To "restore order"
    This is the next Crimea unfolding right now

  2. The United States wants to establish an intelligence department in Hong Kong. The Chinese government is preparing to eliminate this sector. The United States will launch a color campaign in China to encourage young people to riot. In America ,they all already died

  3. Criminals should go where criminals belong: prison.
    When the prisons in Hong Kong get full and I am sure they will soon, send these rioters (disguised as democracy supporters) to some maximum-security prisons inside China, not as extradition but on the basis of borrowing incarceration spaces from China. I have a good feeling that the fellow prisoners in China will offer special treatment to these HK rioters, When this becomes the norm, I guarantee that the number of rioters in the future in HK will be much decreased.

  4. Xi is a complete failure as he continues to crap on the Chinese people. Hong Kong (failed), economy (failed), trade talks (failed), Taiwan (failed). Time for the PLA to intervene and either send Xi off to a re-education camp, or assassinate him. The Chinese people deserve better.

  5. You protestor are traitors to your own race. Chinese.

    You flow Chinese blood you look like chinese and you are Chinese. But you become traitor of your own identity.

    Carrying British and American flags seriously, if you goto America or British, you are still Chinese not American or British and they wont see you to be one.

    Dont you feel ashamed for being a traitor of your own race?? British taken chinese lands by force and you people seems to forget that, instead you worship them for making you their slaves and want to be their puppets.

    I advise is for you traitors to leave china and go to and continue to be slaves to Britain.. just leave and stop destorying hong Kong and China.

  6. Globalisation collapse has proven Hong Kong's down fall as China no longer sees them as a useful connection to guiding Western nations (USA) into compliance with that system. Hong Kong saved its own hide by steering China into the World Trade Organization after 1997 control from their 99 year colonial lease to Great Britain. Now the chickens have come home to roost and Hong Kong may sooner or later be getting their crushing Tiananmen Square experience from the Bejing Lordship as they currently are breathing on the shores of their border on this day August 13, 2019.

  7. It is premature and reckless to assume this protest has anything to do with the trade talks. While there is a possible connection, we don't have enough information to make an assumption.

  8. China state media says west will never get Hong Kong back, let that sink in! Time for a reaction from western world, we shouldnt accept this!

  9. The police were there to rescue the victim. The victim said:"I support Hong Kong police, you hit me." What a shame to HK. What happened in Hong Kong Airport in 13/8/2019 is unforgivable, forever.

  10. Do you guys even know that what is happening in Hong Kong is not a protest anymore, it's a riot now. Last night, two innocent people were beaten up severely by those "protesters". Hong Kong police has been restraint through out this riot. Imagine what you happen if you beat up a police officer or throw a Molotov cocktail to police officers in the U.S, or any other countries? That's what's happening in HongKong right now! And western media won't even report that! So, people please, open your eyes and learn how to think without all the bias that's in your mind.

  11. The difference with these guys, Chances are They will lose their Freedom, their children and grandchildren will live under communism. Fight and die now if necessary or just die later. They use facial recognition, they must know that they will be hunted down by china one day.

  12. They were trying to rescue a journalist who was attacked by rioters, and those rioters are in the airport illegally!!. Do you think they would clear the airport with these little men.

  13. This is horrible fake news. They are trying to link these protests to tarrifs. This has NOTHING to do with tarrifs. These guys are liars. This has to do with extradition and Hong Kong independence.

  14. Be careful not to be infiltrated, Xi hongkongers hates you so buzz off!
    You squatted an island belonging to the Phils. Now you're bullying Hong Kong too! What's next? The Alcatraz?

  15. 年轻人血气方刚,太容易被蛊惑了,这样的行为跟街头小混混无差,都很爽很兴奋,感觉自己做了英雄事迹,岂不知还是因为自己太年轻。打砸抢又不用负责任,不用上学,花着父母的钱,当然爽的很。

  16. fox news=fake news. These were not riot police, ther were trying to rescue a journalist tied and beaten by riots protesters inside the airport.

  17. HK POLICE AND MAINLAND CHINESE WERE BEING FRAMED UP AND BEATEN IN HK, currently we cannot post anything that is truly happening in UK on foreign social medias!!! It is not demonstration anymore!!It is barbaric violence!!! Really hope there are responsible reporters come to hongkong and tell the truth to the world!! I LOVE HK,I LOVE CHINESE!!! Thank you!!

  18. They are not peaceful protesters. They are terrorists,
    probably having funding help from western countries to disrupt HK society.  These terrorists must be stopped with whatever
    means possible.

  19. These rioters nearly killed a guy they thought was a Chinese spy! It turned out later he was a tourist from China! Why isn't this incident shown?….. What a shame of HK.

  20. the info from Fox is wrong. flights did leave and arrive but around 100 flights approx were cancelled. the airport is open all along,

  21. The dragon will eat the snake.
    The snake will bite the dragon in his belly.

    The dragon will get sick and never be the same.

  23. Democracy , Freedom and Human Rights , I personally give the highest salute and thumb up to China . They allowing such naive act happened in own country . Also I personally think this is the world biggest jokes so far ever happen in human kind civilised history for develop country occupying the airport with stupid reason . If this happen in JFK , New York airport . They will know what's is the consequences for this naive act

  24. Many Hong Kong young people think that English is better than Chinese. How to prove that Chinese is a great language?

  25. They are uneducated people. How dare u interrupt traveller to go back their country. Shame on Hongkong poor country people. If u act like this U guys deserve stay under chinca forever. We shall never visit Hongkong so that they suffer and regret. I want all these stupid people gets even more poor and can’t even buy proper food once in a day time.

  26. Down with these communist bastards! Long live Hong Kong! If you have to slaughter people to maintain power, you don't deserve to hold power.

  27. Looking at the comments it seems there are a lot of CCP sent 5 cents internet trolls to curb opinions and blurr perceptions. Average Chinese people in China can't even access YouTube. Chinese who access Youtube attack western media and Hong Kong people's fight against corrupt, despicable and violent government is a JOKE!

  28. There are lots of CCP paid commentators that are actually Chinese but they create accounts that has 'western' name. Sneaky sneaky

  29. Why didn't you report the riots and violence of those mobs? They attack tourists, citizens, police and journalists and take over railways and airport. They set fires, shoot steel balls and beat up innocent people. Why covering the face if you feel so righteous and proud of your behavior? Why waving flags of UK and US and meet with foreign government officers? Media is nothing but tools of politicians now? Riot police? Your own visitors there said the police was already restrained enough from what he saw.

  30. No! Get your fact straight if you call yourselves reporter/journalist.

    The police was not planning to be there. They were asked to rescue a tortureed reporter from China, who was unconscious, the terrorists would not let the ambulance people taking the man. So as soon as the ambulence left, the police left.

  31. Americans may have had something to do with this, though, to be fair, Hong Kong itself may also be blamed. Be wary of those Hong Kong based games, especially those King and emperor types of games, as they maybe used for spreading propaganda. Could hurt China Philippine relations. A lot of people seemed to forget the potential credit card fraud and scams associated with some Hong Kong based Android games. And potential malware and spyware too. Now, amidst this riot, I was wondering the impact on Huawei sales.

  32. The HK police should have shot the protests with tranquilizer or something. They're so horrible. They even hit their own local people out of nowhere.

  33. Evacuate workers, then introduce non lethal bioagents that cause vomit and diarrhea into the airport ventilation system. When everyone gets sick, they will go home. Happy ending.

  34. Disgusting.. barely any words about the actual situation or why people are fighting – main focus is: do we gets to keep our moneyz???

  35. to these fake news makers and brain-damaged blind ppl: did China say a word about the protests or terrorists of USA or Europe? why the USA always care about China? because China become stronger with a different system and they are all yellow?

  36. T:I have a good idea.We planned a riot in Hong Kong.We can benefit a lot from it.
    A: Yeah this's great!I can use the media to help you publicize.The theme is to defend freedom.
    E: If it succeeds, Hong Kong will still be under my control.
    A Whisper for E : Taiwan is under my control
    E:Yeah !! let's do this~
    A: Yeah~

  37. 我支持警察,现在你们可以打我了。 I support the police, and now you can hit me. 私は警察に支持して、今あなた達は私を殴ることができます。 Estoy de acuerdo con la policía. Ahora pueden golpearme. Je soutiens la police, et maintenant tu peux me frapper. Ich unterstütze die Polizei und jetzt kannst du mich schlagen. яподдерживаю полицию, и теперь ты можешь ударить меня.

  38. I like how the western media relates the riots to the trade war. Only idiots would think this whole thing is about an extradition law.

  39. HK is a part of China forever🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

  40. The US Army M320 Grenade Launcher is in the protesters' hand. There is no denying that the US is the black hand behind HK's chaos.

  41. Meanwhile, some other reports from the other side claims the police was there to 'rescue' 2 mainland Chinese. Some protesters suspect they are government agent or undercover police, so they detained the 2 mainland Chinese, and one of them was beaten up after protesters searched him and find a T-shirt with 'I love police'.
