Vindictive CCP Trash Media Defaming HK Student Leaders
Three weeks have passed since the Occupy Central
At the leading edge of the movement, Hong Kong students
have drawn attention from global media.
In sharp contrast to most international media, the Chinese
Communist Party (CCP) mouthpieces keep striking at student
protesters in an extreme vicious manner.
However most Hong Kong people are not moved by such
However, some worry that the CCP may use violence to
suppress the students once they find that the media assaults
do not work.
After the CCP’s NPC issued a statement that refuses universal
suffrage in Hong Kong, HK students were amongst the first
ones to protested against the decision.
They started the strike, which was then joined by an ever
increasing number of HK civilians.
Initially, the CCP might not have taken the HK students strike
However, they quickly lost control of the situation.
As the leading group of the Occupy Central movement,
HK students became the focus of global media.
In such a situation, CCP mouthpieces again showed the world
how they “act, speak and conspire" in concert with the party.
CCTV, People’s Daily, Global times and pro-CCP HK media
such as Ta Kung Pao and Wen Wei Po have spared no efforts
in attacking student protesters.
Major portal websites in mainland China have also followed
closely, by releasing all kinds of scandalous articles to defame HK
On Sept. 5, People’s Daily started the shameful attacks with an
“Too Young and Warm-Blood, HK Students Don’t Know
They Are Being Used and Coerced by Street Politics."
The article sneered that HK students “don’t even know
what a political reform is like" and “are being used
as a political weapon".
Yu-shek Cheng, professor of political science at City
University of Hong Kong:
“We live in Hong Kong and we know clearly that the CCP
does not give us real political rights.
They attempt to turn Hong Kong into a place
similar to all other big cities in mainland China.
We don’t want to accept that and therefore stand out
to let our voices be heard.
We know that if we don’t speak out today, maybe we won’t
have a second chance to do that.
We go to streets to protect our core values and life style,
as well as our dignity. Those young people mostly
joined the movement voluntarily."
Furthermore, CCP mouthpieces have shown
“special interest" in the organization of HK student groups.
They claimed that the HK Federation of Students (HKFS)
and Scholarism are “financially and political" supported
and there are “inside storie" behind the scenes.
They also defamed HKFS secretary-general Chow Yong-kang
as a “supporter of Taiwan and HK independence".
Another student leader Joshua Wong was also reported
as a “U.S. spy".
As usual, the CCP again attributed the movement to so-called
“foreign forces" that attempt to overturn the CCP.
Being neutral on what occurred in Hong Kong, a Chinese
legal professional said that:
regardless of whether what the CCP mouthpieces said is true
or false, its attacks against the HK student leader sounds like
Those reports are badly organized and illogical, and lack
evidences to support what they said.
Zhao Guojun, chief-editor of Chinese Lawyer Watcher
“I think Wen Wei Po or People’s Daily are too assertive in
making conclusions and those are irresponsible remarks.
Saying someone is incited by foreign forces to do something
is descriptive language used in literatures.
Legally, you need to present evidences to prove
he committed the crime of espionage or surrendered
to the enemy.
There are strict legal definitions of those acts.
So evidences needs to be presented in order to
make serious charges like that.
For this reason, I think those official reports are too hasty,
making them sound like media incitement."
For most HKers, what CCP mouthpieces said against the student
leaders sound like tabloid trash.
Yu-shek Cheng:"Of course the CCP has always been
playing tricks like that.
Currently they are just trying harder than usual
to throw mud at others.
We don’t believe what they say as we clearly see that
people joined Occupy Central movement of their own will.
They are not led by any group. So it is useless discrediting
one or two student leaders, no matter how hard they try."
The CCP’s media attacks have abated as they have little
effect on Hong Kong residents.
On the other hand, those experiencing CCP’s political
movements begin to worry that this may only be
the peace ahead of a storm.
In the past, the CCP would use violence and terror
when lies were not enough to “maintain stability"
of its regime.
