There is no doubt that the illegal blockade and occupation of public roads in Hong Kong and Kowloon have caused more than a billion dollars of damages to the residents of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China.

That is this man-made is beyond doubt.

If HKSAR is governed by what we call "the Rule of Law", shouldn't the HKSAR government be actively seeking compensation from the perpetrators of this economic crime against the 7.3 million people of Hong Kong?  Surely, the sum involved required top priority and attention?

So, what has the HKSAR done to demonstrate to its residents and to the world that Hong Kong is ruled by law?

Failure to redress the wrongs inflicted on the Hong Kong people would only prove the opposite, that in Hong Kong all foreign stooges and colonial leftovers can do whatever they please because in Hong Kong "Westerners Remain Above all Chinese Laws".

Failure to implement the rule of law, nay, failure to even pass the badly needed "Law of National Soveregnty" in Hong Kong, is not only a miscarriage of justice, but also a dereliction of duty, that merits removal or demotion.  Otherwise, how can Beijing say it rules Hong Kong in the name of China's sovereignty, and in accordance with its national constitution?  After all, the Basic Law was passed by the National People's Congress, wasn't it?

After the economic debacles of Occupy Central with "Love and Peace" and the Student Rebellion, it is time for the Hong Kong Legco to do its duty to implement Article 23.  It is long, long overdue.

If not now, when?  

If not the LegCo, who?

Although I disagree with the protestors' methods, there's a reason for it. Unfortunately most people in China do not understand the true reason of the protests since it's not reported in the papers objectively.
