Police fire rubber bullets at Hong Kong extradition protesters

HONG KONG β€” Police goons have fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators protesting against a new bill that would allow extradition to China.

According to the BBC, protesters blocked important roads around government buildings and hurled bricks and projectiles at police.

Hong Kongers are worried the new "law" would allow Beijing to target its political opponents and with China's total lack of human rightsβ€”they are right to be concerned.

The BBC reported that the CCP's puppet, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, condemned the "organized riots." Officials say 72 people have been injured so far in skirmishes, with two men in critical condition.

Of course, the Hong Kong government has said its still backing the bill and it's expected to pass its final rubber stamp vote on June 20.

Thank Beijing for that.

It has promised legally binding human rights safeguards and other measures it says should allay concerns.

Human rights safeguards with Xi Jin-pooh's approval?

According to the BBC, the protests have been for the most part peaceful, but ramped up when demonstrators tried to storm government buildings.

Unsurprisingly, there's been almost no media coverage of the Hong Kong protests in China.

Search results either come up Hong Kong officials have said its courts would have the final say over whether to grant extradition requests, and that suspects accused of political and religious crimes will not be extradited.

Let's not be naive, clearly the CCP is the one making all the decisions, and they WILL have the final say.
