Quotes

...and Britain has been almost negligible thus far ( a statement from the American consulate in Hong Kong said America did not “take sides” or support "any particular individuals or groups involved”) . Many of the territory’s 7m citizens are sympathetic to the demonstrations. But in most neighbourhoods people are going about their business as usual.
