BLOG – New Anti-Occupy Central Ad Appears in the South China Morning Post 13

Rendered in Comic Sans typeface, an anti-Occupy Central advert has appeared today in the South China Morning Post. It was placed by the pro-government ‘Silent Majority’ group (famed for their anti-Occupy video).

The ad laments how the government is under ‘tremendous pressure from external forces‘ and a ‘hugely biased and inflammatory media‘. It also, oddly, expresses sympathy with “the massive HK citizens“.

Hundreds of police officers, many in riot gear, swooped into the Mong Kok Occupy encampment in the early hours of this morning.

Police and street cleaners removed barricades and tents, leaving protesters restricted to a smaller area of Nathan Rd on the southbound side only.
