We've been told to work from home ha ha. I'm going in anyway. I saw a lot of this first hand yesterday and it's no worse or better than anything I've seen in the City over the years. For anyone that knows the Wan Chai scene it was quite surreal yesterday evening to see a couple of thousand protestors have running battles in the Main Street with others enjoying a Sunday evening pint or more along the sides.

Interesting though especially the original reason behind this. A real test of character and appetite on both sides but like most things taken over by those who just want disruption because they've nothing better to do with their lives. Tear gas is an interesting step and the other thing out here is there is much more sympathy for the protestors than would be the case in the UK. The locals value their separation from the mainland and are not taking too kindly to the footage of police tactics here. The authorities need to tread a fine line on upholding the law on this one.
