Hong Kong is one of the more confusing aspects of Chinese policy. However as was stated by Hu Jintao, HK falls under the one China two systems that the government has adopted for situations like HK and Taiwan. This is the idea that ultimately HK is under the control of the Chinese government but is not subjected to the same rules as the mainland. This is evident in the protests and rallies that took place this last week against the lack of political freedoms for the people of HK. As the article states, the numbers from last year’s demonstration has risen substantially and this could be a sign for the beginning of a powerful political movement. It will be interesting to see how the long the momentum of these recent demonstrations lasts.
