    You’ve misunderstood him. He means well, and actually thinks independence is the only meaningful solution for resolving the protests.

    Programme starts at 5 min into audio, debate/rant from ~8:00 - 29:00.


    (Exco, of course, is the exclusive council of sycophants appointed by Carrie Lam to advice Carrie Lam on gov't policies. Several months ago Carrie Lam acknowledged that these policies were the cause of popular discontent and wowed to also listen to voices from the lower strata of society, however not a single Exco or government appointee has been replaced to date, Tommy Cheung included.)

    Tommy Cheung is a regular guest always pushing the pro-big business angle but this day he just seemed lost and out of touch. Very odd. The highly aligned letters to backchat in the following days attacking the hosts of the show were ominous.

    HKFP: In Hong Kong, local entrepreneurs champion the pro-democracy cause


    On Radio Free Asia, political analyst Kay Lam explained the potential effect of the yellow economic circle:

    “The CCP has already set up the ‘red economic circle’ and compelled businessmen and entertainment artists to express their loyalty. Anyone who does not toe the line would be censored. The ‘red economic circle’ is initiated by state power, it is more effective and powerful than other initiatives … The so-called yellow economic circle is the result of the people’s political awakening triggered by the anti-extradition protests. Now, people are actively boycotting the pro-Beijing businesses and artists. One immediate effect of the yellow economic circle is to generate counter political pressure that compels businessmen and artists to have a second thought before they choose to participate in pro-government propaganda…”

    In case it's not obvious, Hung Hom Cafe is a blue business while the one to the right is a yellow business

    "Google has apparently joined Apple in taking down a Hong Kong mapping app under Chinese pressure."

    "This for an app that is being used by citizens in Hong Kong to look up pro-democracy shops to support with their business. Does Google consider peaceful mass protest to be a conflict, or an unfortunate event?"
