Hong Kong activist goes on defensive after being photographed with US consulate official



読み通りの展開となりました。抗議運動の活動家が米国総領事館の幹部とホテルで会っていた現場の写真が出てきました。警察署への投石の現場に星条旗が掲げられています。街頭にも星条旗を振る人が。香港でも相当の活動資金が使われています。活動家の出国を止めこの証拠写真をもとに反逆罪や騒乱罪で処罰できます。

中国は暴徒を暴れさせ事実を積み重ねて米国と対峙
管理人は、ツイッターでこの運動を礼賛、歓迎していた人たちのフォローを外しましたが、日本人はある程度社会問題に関心を持つ人でも、米国が「民主化」と称して反政府運動を支援、推進していることは理解できていないというお粗末な状況です。早くから状況を見抜いて発信していたのは、mko@trappedsoldier氏はじめ数少ない人たち。
北京の対応はしたたかになって来ています。


China Warns Hong Kong Rioters as Airport Grounds All Departures
TEHRAN (FNA)- Violent anti-government marchers in Hong Kong are showing signs of terrorist activity, China warned, as the protesters have flooded the city’s airport, causing all flights from Hong Kong to be cancelled.

Yang Guang, the Spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office in Beijing, blasted the protesters for undermining the city’s “rule of law and social order”, Asia News reported.

"Hong Kong’s radical demonstrators have repeatedly used extremely dangerous tools to attack police officers, which already constitutes a serious violent crime, and also shows the first signs of terrorism emerging, Yang stated.

The rioting poses “a serious challenge to Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability”, Yang noted.

The large-scale protests in Hong Kong, China’s self-governing territory, entered into their tenth consecutive week over the weekend. The protesters erected barricades, marched to police stations, and hurled bricks and petrol bombs at officers. Riot police used tear gas to disperse the unruly crowds.

On Monday, thousands of demonstrators flocked to Hong Kong International Airport, where they staged a massive sit-in. The action “seriously disrupted” the airport’s work, the administration announced, and led to all flights out of the city being cancelled.

"Airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted ... all flights have been cancelled," the city's airport authority said in a statement.

With roads to the airport congested and car parks reported full, the authority advised all passengers to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible.

The protests, which were initially against the now suspended extradition bill that would have allowed suspects in criminal cases to be moved to mainland China for trial, now demand broader political reform and the resignation of city officials.

The Chinese government has been consistently accusing external forces of attempting to destabilise the situation by supporting the protesters.

On Saturday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Hua Chunying advised her US colleague, Morgan Ortagus, on Friday to rethink her statements instead of trying to conceal the United States' involvement in the Hong Kong crisis by accusing China.

"The official spokeswoman of the US State Department should first reevaluate her statements and actions, and not discuss media reports and use them as an excuse to attack other countries’ governments … trying to cover the facts of the United States' interference in China's domestic affairs," Hua said.

The spokeswoman stated that the United States' actions had caused outrage in China and in Hong Kong, calling for Washington to respect international law and the fundamental principles of international relations.

On Thursday, a pro-Beijing newspaper published a report on a meeting between a US diplomat and the opposition's leaders. The office of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong issued a stern warning against such activities by US diplomats. In response, Ortagus likened the Chinese actions to those of a "thuggish regime", chiding Beijing for being irresponsible.

On Sunday, China warned Britain to stay out of its internal affairs after British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab called for an independent investigation into the riots in its former colony.

The angry reaction came after the British Foreign Office announced on Friday Raab had talked on phone with Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam and reminded her of citizens' right to hold protests in Hong Kong.

“It is simply wrong for the British government to directly call Hong Kong’s Chief Executive to exert pressure,” Hua said, noting that Hong Kong is no longer a British colony and the UK has no supervisory rights.

“The Chinese side seriously urges the UK to stop its interference in China’s internal affairs and stop making random and inflammatory accusations on Hong Kong,” she stated.

中国政府がはっきりと「カラー革命」という言葉を使い、反撃に出ましたね。まずは香港の人々に真実を知らせ、自分たちで、米国から距離を置くように説得する。宣伝戦から入っているように見えます。

Hong Kong activist goes on defensive after being photographed with US consulate official
A Hong Kong activist who has played an active role in the ongoing anti-Beijing protests has raised suspicions after being photographed meeting with a senior official from the US consulate.

Joshua Wong Chi-fung, the secretary-general of pro-democracy party Demosisto, told the Hong Kong Standard that there was nothing sinister behind his recent meeting with Julie Eadeh, a political unit chief of the US consulate general in Hong Kong. Their rendezvous, which was caught on camera, was quickly seized upon by pro-Beijing media.
"I even went to Washington several ti
mes, so what's so special about meeting a US consul?" Wong told the Standard.

He claimed that their discussion focused on the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act – a bill proposed in the US Congress which calls for involvement in safeguarding “democracy” in Hong Kong. The two also reportedly discussed banning US exports of equipment to Hong Kong police.

When contacted by AFP for comment, a State Department spokesperson said representatives of the US government "meet regularly with a wide cross section of people across Hong Kong and Macau."

On Thursday, China’s Foreign Ministry expressed “strong dissatisfaction” over media reports alleging that a senior official at the US consulate had met with a Hong Kong “independence group.”

In a statement, the ministry urged Washington to "immediately make a clean break with various anti-China rioters" and "stop interfering in Hong Kong's affairs immediately."

Protests continue to rock Hong Kong, weeks after demonstrations erupted in opposition to a now-suspended extradition bill which would allow suspects to face trial in mainland China. A video that circulated on Twitter on Wednesday showed a demonstrator waving an American flag, as his comrades hurled projectiles at a Hong Kong police station.

この写真は、ロビーかどこかで離れたところから撮影されています。今は隠しカメラを使わなくてもスマホのカメラの性能が良くなっていて相手に気づかれずに撮影するのは容易です。シャッターボタンを押さずとも、スマホの画面へのタッチや音声でシャッターがおります。
特に音声に反応して撮影するようにしておくと、しゃべっている間中バチバチと写真が撮れますから、その中からうまく撮れたものを選びます。

防犯カメラも多いし、どこで写真を撮られているかわからない時代です。
