NEWS – Frontlines: Umbrellas vs Riot Shields as Occupy Camp Expands

A HongWrong.com / Huffington Post cross-feature.

At around 9:40pm last night, a small group of Umbrella Movement activists dragged metal barriers on to Lung Wo Road at the rear of government headquarters. The area near the main Occupy camp was previously open to traffic. But after some debate, a small group of demonstrators moved in to block the road.

With fewer than a dozen police officers on the scene, pro-democracy protesters reinforced barriers on the eastbound side of Lung Wo Road with cable ties. The move came after police cleared an area of barricades at the southern end of the main protest site earlier in the day.

BLOG – Derrick Pang of Chun Wo Development Cancels HKU Funds Over Occupy 5

Chun Wo Development Holdings CompanyDerrick Pang has withdrawn scholarship funding from the University of Hong Kong in light of the “radical” and “illegal” Occupy Central protests.

A letter from deputy chairman Derrick Pang to HKU’s vice-chancellor stated that the movement will “destroy our sound and effectual law system” and that the company would therefore be cancelling its two HK$10,000 bursaries (worth HK$880 per month).

Chun Wo Development is a multi-million dollar construction company founded in 1968. Its revenue last year totalled HK$6.55 billion.

The letter wrongly states that the movement has “ruined the prosperity of Hong Kong“. In fact, tourism is up 4.83% since this time last year and the government has repeatedly published press releases stating that the stock market, banking system and currency exchange are operating normally.
