They won't stand anymore society is changing that it's not a challenge to the whole of Chinese society it's a Hong Kong as wanting to fix their own society but he basically thinks that even the most hardline protesters you have to understand why they are acting in self-defence cocoon cocoon and meanwhile no one then is backing down than this heads sort of inexorably towards more serious conflict I mean these these protests have been going on for as you say eighteen weeks do you get a sense that that military intervention is is is near I think we'll well it's easier to say is that there is a from the outside a disturbing lack of realism about is in Hong Kong have the very hardest line kind of radical protesters almost want the troops to come onto the streets because that would prove what China is like and triggered international response a lot of the youngsters that you talked to who are more moderate they just say Oh never happened actually the reverend chew he remembers being in the squad the day before the troops and tanks can chairman for the sake of the regime for the sake of the vast financial interests that China has in Hong Kong but also for the sake of his legacy who more widely I mean these protesters are a huge number of people but they aren't everyone in the territory what's the sense among the wider public about support or indeed concern I think we'll surprises throughout this eighteen weeks of process has been how public opinion hasn't really deserted the processes yet and every time they did something kind of unusually violent or stupid or attacks you know mainland tourists or were really very violent in some cases towards policemen all smashed up metro stations we thought the public with desert them then the police Gandhi something even more stupid and violent and that seems to rally public opinion once more I think whatever happens and the best case scenario is probably a really tightened grip by Beijing Hong Kong over the next few years that really kind of Russia lost their political freedoms what you can say I think would depressing certainty is that even if it ends without bloodshed which is kind of cold repression that Beijing is losing hearts and minds in Hong Kong in a very big way particularly the younger generation you know you talk to even school kids in school uniforms.

Hong Kong extradition: Debate over bill delayed amid protests
"Now to Hong Kong lawmakers have decided to delay debates about controversial Bill, that would allow extraditions to Maitland China amid huge protests in the safety. Some local companies have suspended work, and allowed staff to join the demonstration, but one businessman Langkwai phone group champion. Zemun has told Bloomberg why he backs the Bill people are word. I've heard of the firewall between Hong Kong and China is going away being eroded blessed thing, I think, at this point that China even wants is the firewall to be a road because lead Hong Kong to be one country, two systems. It's a big benefit for China, and especially with the trade war going on between the US and China at the moment. This is the last thing I think China, even wants. And so I think that the timing is not great for China. But I think at the end of the day, their aim is to keep Hong Kong as one country two systems and not one and a half systems. I think they don't want to take your freedoms, white. To the phone group chairman, Alan Siemen speaking. Let's live not to Hong Kong weapon begs. China government editor Karen Lee is standing by Karen. One take from one well known Hong Kong business. But how a business is generally viewing the Bill that all those, of course who oppose it. There are there are a lot of you points here there. There were a lot of businesses yesterday, especially local smaller enterprises, who were saying that they were going to allow people even take the day off or to make work hours, flexible today, so that people could go gather because it is, of course, mid day on a workday here. So we're seeing quite a range. Of viewpoints. It's amazing that they I mean, I was, I was surprised and I guess that just shows how strongly public opinion is against this. Why Islam going through with it? You know, this is something that people feel very passionate about on both sides, and Carrie Lam has argued in her government has argued to set it again, a few minutes ago that this is needed to close a loophole that would stop Hong Kong from being a refuge for fugitives. On the other side, you have people who say that this is basically, the long arm of Beijing, extending itself, down into Hong Kong and could help a road the economy and the independence that allows it to be the global financial center dot it is indeed and a move, quite a lot of international reaction, including in the US the latest being the US house beacon Nazi place, saying that the extradition Bill impels US Hong Kong ties. I mean, not as wise had so much local Anglo, but attention, isn't it? It's, it's about really how businesses on how the world views Hong Kong in the relationship with China's doesn't it? Absolutely. That's a huge factor in this Nancy Pelosi coming out and saying that the Bill was dangerous that would imperil the long standing very good relationship between Hong Kong and the United States that is that is a very strong statement. People here are worried that this is something that's going to stop Hong Kong from being really an independent place where people can come to business where the rule of law is upheld. They're worried that it's going to make it just another Chinese city. And you're seeing a lot of that anger spill onto the streets today. So, so it seems like if the entire society living in Hong Kong isn't worried truly about the island becoming a refuge for fugitives, and the US and other free nations are concerned about the independence. And the rule of law is Carrie Lam, just a puppet for the communist party in Beijing. You know, it's hard to know what is going on in her mind. At this point, we do know that she's cancelled some appearance. Today. So she might be preparing to speak at a later time. We do know that the government here is backed by Beijing, Hong Kong is part of China, and this is perhaps another move to bring Hong Kong closer into the Chinese fold joining other things like the greater bay area over the last year or so indeed, we've seen the reaction attempts at the hang sang.

The government said plans will go ahead for the second reading of the extradition Bill on Wednesday. Now, the organizers claiming that a million people took part in the March. Police put the figure at about a quarter of a million. If the estimate of one million is correct.

These protests are now Hong Kong's leader, carry lamb says she was behind the Bill. Not beijing. Is that true? A question for professor willy Lam expert on Chinese politics, the center for Chinese studies at the Chinese university of Hong Kong. Well, definitely it is an order coming from Beijing, and with short this, because the politburo standing committee, which is the highest ruling council in China came out, Saudi to support this tradition Bill and plus other more junior ministers also came out the Representative office from Beijing. Hong Kong has also been tied. The calling up pro establishment pro Beijing, members of the legislature asking them to guess, to this extradition bills that this is an initiative coming from. Beijing is just that Harry them is seen as very much a student shot Beijing. So she will do whatever Beijing, ask for to do people are oversleep, pretty concerned, as you can see from the protests. But what about specifically what really bothers them? Well, this time it's different because we have seen protesters up to one median guarding the Nice's coming from disparate sectors of society, including the traditional pro establishment business community while this speakers Hong Kong businessman, have a long tradition of doing business with counterparts in China and very often bribery and other less usually accepted ways of doing business has happy news in the past two decades. So this people are traded. They might be held hostage by what they have done it before, which was questioned the practice the use of advantage and bribes and so far for one day they might be held account and be sent back to China. So that is a confluence of interest and support gains. They saw coming from different sectors of society. You think that nevertheless, despite the protests, the law will be pushed through? What happened early letter? Remember that changed presidency paint kindle power less than seven years ago. He has been.
