Massive protests in Hong Kong...this is what I've been waiting for!

via CNN
More than 1 million protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong Sunday, organizers said, to oppose a controversial extradition bill that would enable China to extradite fugitives from the city.

The mass of protesters would be the largest demonstration since the city was handed back to China in 1997. Civil Human Rights Front, the group that organized the protests, said 1.03 million people marched -- a figure that accounts for almost one in seven of the city's 7.48 million-strong population.
Story here. 

This is what I've been waiting for!  This will give us a GREAT indication of the course that China will take.

Will they crush dissent?

Will they seek some type of foreign crisis to serve as a distraction?


Whichever course they choose this will be telling.  What will be interesting is if they take a hands off approach and the protest continue...sort of a Chinese yellow vest movement.

If they go that route and this thing persists then all bets are off.

This bears watching.
