image for Hong Kong protests: Video shows paramilitary forces assembling in Shenzhen

Amidst fears that the Tienanmen Square massacre could be repeated as protests in Hong Kong continue into their tenth week, a newly-released video shows China’s paramilitary forces amassing dozens of military vehicles in the neighbouring city of Shenzhen.

In a video obtained and released by Chinese state-owned media website Global Times, dozens of military trucks and over a dozen Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) can be seen assembling in Shenzhen — less than 30km from Hong Kong — for military 'exercises'.

The Global Times reported that the People's Armed Police (PAP) "have been assembling in Shenzhen, a city bordering Hong Kong, in advance of apparent large-scale exercises" based on the video.

They added that the APC's main guns appeared to have been removed and that the vehicles have been assembling over the weekend.

The video of the military vehicles was edited with dramatic music and is similar to the propaganda video released earlier as a warning by a garrison of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in Hong Kong.

If we allow these types of terrorist activities to continue, then Hong Kong will slide into a bottomless abyss.".

On Monday, outbound flights from Hong Kong were cancelled as protestors occupied the main terminal of the Hong Kong International Airport for the fourth consecutive day. »

In fact, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat went on Twitter to mock anyone who took Trump seriously for lobbing false accusations of murder. »
