What happened in Prince Edward MTR Station? (31/8)
Aggressive ‘protesters’ with helmets and gas masks attacked ordinary passenger at Prince Edward station on Saturday 31/8. It’s obvious the rioters attacked first. To protect himself and the commuters a blue-shirt old man whipped out a hammer. Subsequently, the rioters rushed the train trying to beat him, with the rest of the rioters screaming ‘beat him, beat him…’. But the old man managed to keep the rioters at bay and chased them off the train:

About ten minutes later riot police arrived the station and arrested many:

’Pro democracy’ youths brutally attacking an elderly man (Saturday 14/9?). Most of the attackers are wearing masks. They attack in turns from different angels, and supporters put up umbrellas to prevent filming of the abuse. «Photographers» and «Press» are blocking the way. Who the brave, helping man in blue shirt and the women are, is unclear.

Pansy Ho Chiu-king, chairperson of the Hong Kong Federation of Women, makes a statement before the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Switzerland, to condemn the violent nature of the protests, pointing out that in the span of 95 days, there were over 130 protests, over 110 of which have ended violently. Young kids are reportedly pressured by their peers to subscribe to anti-establishment beliefs, perform school strikes, and will be fervently harassed if they refuse.

«Secrets of the Hong Kong protesters. Out Smarting The Government. Next Level Protesting»

A video made in Hong Kong by WeAreChange.org: From 5:10– 6:10 the cameraman is revealing information about the military-like well-organized, and dynamic coordination of protesters:

– I haven’t seen this in any other protest I have covered around the world. (Showing a map on his mobile of a building): The real time maps are ridiculous. … They will have a floor-plan of whatever area the protesters are going on. They have a little legend. They will have orange areas for protesters. … Same things for law-enforcement presence. That will be labeled on the map as blue. There will be areas for movement. There will be different icon for where there is an aid station, where it’s safe to rest, ways to escape, and ways that are blocked off.» Reporter: – And they are doing all this on ‘Telegram’. Many times deciding what action they are going to take through a Telegram-vote … definitely something that’s just totally, totally different from what we have in the United States.»

Interview with Dr. Michael Pillsbury, Defense Policy Advisor and Senior Fellow at the Hudson Institute. Note that Pillsbury assisted in drafting the legislation that created the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) in 1983. Pillsbury has also been, according to Wikipedia, a member of the Board of Freedom House, which is partly funded by NED.

Legal origin of NED is U.S. Congress resolution H.R. 2915 (H.R. means House Resolution). Wikipedia: «H.R. 2915 was adopted by the House on November 17, 1983 and the Senate the following day»

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Endowment_for_Democracy

The Washington Post, Sept. 22, 1991: «In 1991, Allen Weinstein, who helped draft the legislation establishing NED in 1983, candidly said: ‘A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA.’»

Transcript of Pillsbury’s answer to the first question of whether «Occupy Central» is America’s fault: «It’s not all our fault, but we’re partially involved. We have a large consulate there that’s in charge with taking care of the Hong Kong policy act, passed by Congress to ensure democracy in Hong Kong. We also have funded millions of dollars in programs through the National Endowment for Democracy to help democracy in Hong Kong, so in that sense the Chinese accusation [that it’s America’s fault] is not totally false.»

BBC-interview with Jamila Raqib, Executive Director of Albert Einstein Institution (AEI):
At the dimsumdaily.hk website there is a BBC-video from a conference called the «Oslo Freedom Forum». There Jamila Raqib from AEI talked about how they helped the «Occupy Central movement» (also called «Umbrella movement») in 2014. Dimsumdaily.hk writes: «In 2014, many of the student protesters at Occupy Central were trained two years before they took it to the streets. They were described as Weapon of Mass Destruction to challenge the Chinese government.»

Transcript of what Jamila Raqib (AEI) said in the interview (2:30–3:12): «Protesters were taught how to behave during a protest, how to keep ranks, how to speak to police, how to manage their own movement, how to use «marshals» within the movement. These are people who are specially trained… . Also how to behave when arrested. You know … practical things like the need for food and water. You know … that the movement can last longer when people are taken care of. And also how to manage a water cannon used against you. And other types of police violence». BBC correspondent: «It’s meticulous?». Raqib: «Absolutely!»
