[ THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM ]

1. Both @realDonaldTrump and @mike_pence have just spoken out with grave concern over situation in HK.

2. We face extreme uncertainty over whether the army will intervene. How should HKers react if we wake up and see tanks rumbling along Central?

3. 1.7 million HKers who took to the streets has shown #EmperorXi that our democracy movement is far from over.

4. As Xi looks forward to the 70th anniversary of the PRC’s founding, he has good reasons to authorize a swift crackdown on HK despite the economic risk.

5. The @WhiteHouse must put HK’s human rights front and center in this new round of trade talks with Chinese representatives.

6. Hong Kong is on the brink of bloodshed. God bless Hong Kong.
