Rebellion in Hong Kong? — Magpie

Study on demographics, ideology and demands of protestors. Inconclusive, but it appears that the HK plutocracy opposes (bad for finance, commerce, and asset value).

Quite a bit has been written about this lately and from what I can gather the protestors are far from homogenous, representing different interest groups with different agendas and objectives. The so-called  black groups of violent radicals are as usual only a minority of the population of protestors and the protestors are a minority of the population of HK. The numbers appear to be inflated in the Western media, seemingly for propaganda purposes in the echo chamber that runs the narrative rather than resulting from observational error.
