Hong Kong Protests In Focus

Aug 14, 2019

Protests inside an airport in Hong Kong grew violent this week, as anti-government demonstrations continued for another week.

Chinese state media released videos of troop movement by China near the Hong Kong border.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted “Many are blaming me, and the United States, for the problems going on in Hong Kong. I can’t imagine why?” It wasn’t immediately apparent who the “many” he was referring to are.

What are the potential outcomes of these demonstrations? What is causing the violence?

We provide analysis on these protests.
