    I've moved on.
    Until proven otherwise this was done by someone wanting to escalate tensions. If it was a protester I think they need to come forward and man up!

    Although, I admit at times I was frightened like a mouse, the moment, Carrie's chaps in green did something, my blood boiled and you know what after that.

    Happy New Year everyone.
    Thank you! Glad you made it home safe.

    Yup- and when there was no violence, only a bit of vandalism and some blockades to try to let people get home without arrests, they got desperate. You can always find a large group of people in CWB, probably always a shady character or two in the crowd.

    Surprised they didn't do the usual Mong Kok round up but I guess all the buses and vans were staged on HK Island.

    Anyway, had to arrest a pile of people to guarantee all the overtime to process them into detention. That's a lot of paperwork to fill out, it isn't going to write itself...

    Good news

    "We believe that the luxury landscape of Hong Kong will be profoundly reshaped," said Claudia D'Arpizio, partner at Bain & Company in Milan and lead writer of the company's annual luxury report. She believes Hong Kong's luxury market will find a "new equilibrium" through fewer physical stores and a refocus on "catering to local consumers."

    Another injury to add to slipping and falling on their own pepper spray for their count of police officer injuries associated with the protests?
