🇭🇰 Hong Kong's 'Occupy Central' activists handed prison terms | Al Jazeera English



Leaders of the “Occupy” democracy movement in Hong Kong have been jailed on public nuisance charges.
Their protests in 2014 lasted almost three months and brought Hong Kong to a virtual standstill as hundreds of thousands of people blocked roads, demanding open elections.
Nine activists appeared for sentencing in court on Wednesday.

  1. Teach your youngsters to compete, to innovate, and to modernize. Look at your neighbor 1.4 billion population. Ripe, rich and ready for harvest to do business.Teach your youngsters in street demonstration for personal agenda? No wonder your tiny island heading towards living in small cubicles in future with many shortchanges in learning after paying huge sum of money in education by their parents. Practically all countries of the world look at your huge neighbor to reap future dividends in development on housing, health care and education. Gone are the ways of colonial thinking. Give a thought for your young generation. Not running in packs on the streets to get personal agenda to be heard. They should be finding ways how to be enrich themselves and to integrate in a richer and more advance and progressive society.
