Originally, the question was “How do you feel about the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement,” but a lot has happened since then.
There was the Fishball Revolution during the Chinese New Year holiday, the rise of localist groups and (previously unheard of) pro-independence groups. Then there was the LegCo election that saw localist candidates capture seats and the subsequent controversy over improperly taken oaths and the resulting interepretation of the Basic Law by the NPCSC.
Therefore, let’s make this a more general discussion page for Hong Kong politics. What are you view of events during the last couple of years? What do you hope for?
