They seem to be bad, still; but like everything, after the initial shock/outrade, the Western media seem to accept it as the norm and move on to the next newsworthy shock. I had a meeting with one of our HK team today, and she was saying that it was starting to get some of her direct reports down.

Without reading this whole thread, can someone explain what exactly the protestors are protesting about?

The media seems to have moved on from the original reason (what ever that was) and just reports on the clashes.

PLA on the street over the weekend. Not in uniform but armed with brooms and shovels to help clean up. Probably a subtle hint from Bejing that they are there although confined to barracks. Not sure how long until they unleash them with more malicious intent.
