Radicals breached ‘bottom line’ of law, spokeswoman says
Two organizations of the central government expressed strong indignation and condemnation on Wednesd上海419
ay over violent acts targeting mainland residents at Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the airport resumed operations on Wednesday after the High Court in the Hong Kong上海419品茶微信
Special Administrative Region issued an interim injunction banning unlawful obstruction of airport operations.
上海419The order, requested by Airport Authority Hong Kong, prohibits
any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with ope
rations at the airport, according to a statement issued by the authority on Wednesday morning.
The Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrativ上海419品茶微信
e Region and the State Council’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office responded to the violence at the airport.
Two mainland residents were illegally detained and beaten on Tuesday night by radical protesters who occupied and crip上海419
led the airport. The two are a Global Times reporter and a Shenzhen resident who was accused of being an undercover pol
ice officer from the mainland. After the assault, the two were taken to local hospitals for medical treatment.上海419品茶微信
“The atrocity has totally gone beyond the bottom line of a civilized society,
which is no different from terrorists’ acts,” the Liaison Office statement said.
The office pointed out that the protesters’ acts, including paralyzing operations of the airport and harassing passengers of var上海419
ious nationalities and ages, severely hurt others’ rights and damaged Hong Kong’s international reputation.
“This time the protesters have torn down their deceptive masks of ‘peace, rationality and nonviolence'”, the statement said.上海419品茶微信
The liaison office pledged that it will continue to stand behind relevant authoritie
s to safeguard the personal safety and legitimate rights of mainland residents in Hong Kong.
More than 80 percent of Chinese parents have made arrangements for their young children du
ring summer vacation, with extracurricular classes and travel their top choices, a recent survey found. 上海楼凤
The survey, conducted by the parenting channel on qq.com and Penguin Fa
irytale, an open content platform for kids, collected 10,410 samples from 28 cities.
上海楼凤女神会所More than 72 percent of the respondents had their children take extracurricular clas
ses and about 50 percent had their children go on a trip, according to the survey.
Among the respondents, 64.5 percent have only one child. More than half of the res 上海楼凤
pondents‘ children are pre-school age, and 38.3 percent are in elementary school.
When asked about the purpose of after-school tutoring, 66 percent of the p
上海楼凤arents said they want their children to adapt to this learning environment from a young age a
nd 27 percent said they are afraid their children will be left behind by their peers if others take such classes.
On the choice of extracurricular classes, parents tend to choose interest-oriented classes f 上海楼凤女神会所
or pre-school children, and academic classes for elementary school age children, the survey showed.
Learning happens not just in the classroom these days; summer camps, seeing shows 上海楼凤
and exhibitions and overseas study tours are becoming increasingly common, according to the sur
上海楼凤女神会所vey. Overseas study tours are especially popular among families in first- and second-tier cities.
For many families, summer vacation has become a new spending season for child
ren’s education besides the back-to-school time right before the new school year begins, the survey said. 上海楼凤
More than half of the surveyed families spent less than 10,000 yu
an ($1,422) this summer, about 20 percent spent more t
han 20,000 yuan, while nearly three percent splashed out more than 50,000 yuan. 上海楼凤女神会所
The biggest chunk of family spending during summer went to children’s edu
cation — 44.7 percent, followed by 32.6 percent on daily necessities and 22.7 percent on family travel.
criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.
And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园
tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited
上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.
If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所
eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa
st weeks has shown people around the world the ugly and violent side of Western-style democracy.
Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园
They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h
ijacked subway carriages so that people cannot go to work, they have attacked police officers, police stations and pol
上海后花园女神会所ice family quarters, even passers-by, and they have stormed the airport forcing it to shut down three times so far this month.
The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.
Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园
icians in the US have criticized the Hong Kong police claiming they have used excessive force. One only has to re
call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所
n. But using a double standard in this way has become typical US behavior. Anti-China forces in the West should not un
derestimate China’s determination to safeguard stability and prosperity in Hong Kong. Nor should they un上海后花园
derestimate China’s capability to defend its territorial sovereignty and security.
Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an
y illusion they may have that they will get away with their illegal acts and crimes. And th上海后花园女神会所
e SAR government will continue to enforce the law in the city and bring any lawbreakers to justice.
Police in 154 cities across the country have destroyed 107,000 illegal firearms, explosives and detonators that were co

On Monday morning, police in Wuhan, Hubei province, destroyed a number of air
上海419论坛品茶微信guns, shotguns and replica firearms as well as explosives and detonators by melting
them in a steel plant furnace, which was stoked to reach temperatures of up to 1,600 C.
“Gun- and explosives-related cases endanger people’s lives, public security and the co

“We will take effective measures to curb gun- and explosives-rel

In recent years, although such crimes have declined sign

In order to tackle the issue, the ministry, together with 23 other authorities, set up a mini上海419论坛品茶微信

Last year, police nationwide dealt with more than 30,000 gun- and explosives-related cases, u

Since January, police across the country dealt with 16,000 such cases, uncovered 163 organized crime operations and de上海419论坛品茶微信

Yang strongly condemned protesters who threw gasoline bombs at police officers on Sunday night.
上海419品茶微信A very small number of rioters hurled the bombs at police officers at police sta

An initial diagnosis showed that the officer suffered second-degree bu 上海419品茶微信

“We express our strong indignation and condemnation of this sinister, reckless and serious crime,” Yang said.
Such violent acts have brutally violated the rule of law and social order in Hong Kon 上海419

In response, the yuan fell to a low of just beyond 7-to-1 against the US dollar on Monday. Allowing the yuan to fall red
