Such an unfortunate agitation. I lived in HK when it was a colony, and was 
there shortly before the hand 
 over, in '97. It has always been a mercantile center, and a port. That is its 
purpose, and even those in Beijing know that, and don't want to mess it up. 
Prior to this, I have heard nothing about sudden crackdowns, or undue 
restrictions in Hong Kong, that would result in this student protest.
