Meanwhile, the protest leaders show no sign of backing down. Nathan Law, the youth activist celebrated in Washington and photographed meeting with US officials in Hong Kong, took to Twitter to urge his peers to soldier on: “We have to persist and keep the faith no matter how devastated the reality seems to be,” he wrote.
This is the characteristics of the pro-democracy protest leaders. They support the movement from behind--way way way behind, like in a foreign country in the comfort of their office/homes while the stupid students go to the front line doing the heavy work for them. If these leaders succeed and come to power, they will exhibit the same characteristics and that would be the end of Hong Kong.
