The whole issue is the "extradition treaty" between HK and China.
I get it.....
The worry is that China would start demanding HK to hand over their citizens who are critical to the CPC.
The easy fix to this would be "nonpolitical" extradition for such things as violent crimes.
Political "crimes" would be exempt.

Don't get me wrong....
I'm all about protesting something that is wrong or unjust.
In this case....
China did NOTHING!
These protesters made their point and should step back to see what happens.
Many eye's are on this.

HK people did not experience the real deal that mainlanders had back in 60s, so they now look very c ...
Back in the day when HK was handed over to China, they needed some kind of peaceful assurance that the "status quo" be maintained.
HK provided a sizable financial interest to the national GDP.
Now that China has grown out of its financial infancy, HK is not as important as before.
They are acting like a spoiled child encouraged by western powers.
One thing that should arouse our attention is that not every HK local is Chinese in blood, most of whom are decendents of other countries like the UK, Viet Nam, the Philippines, so do not expect them to have close and friendly relationship toward mainlanders.
HK is losing its strategic importance, that is true, because what it played can be easily substituted by other cities like Shanghai, Shenzhen or Guangzhou. Even Guizhou, a poor province in China but with advanced IT investments, can take the place of HK in 5G age.
