Extreme radicals have initiated violent activities in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and seriously violated the bottom line of "one country, two systems" principle, endangering the normal life and property of residents, disrupting the region's prosperity and stability, and challenging the authority of the government.

The radicals have recruited mainly young people who are less experienced into causing chaos for them.

They are naive as to believe that citizens will be manipulated. The HKSAR government dares not to take counter-measures, and China can't handle such chaos.

Fuelled by the incitement from external forces, they live in a fantasy world, not knowing that their violent behaviors are doomed to fail as they run counter to the rule of law and the resolve of the Hong Kong people and entire country.

The most pressing and overriding task facing all Hong Kong residents is to stop violence, end the chaos and restore order.

However, it is unrealistic to expect the criminals to come to their senses. As puppets of external forces, they have committed shocking crimes.

The only way to make them atone for their crimes is to firmly support the Hong Kong police in strictly enforcing law and in punishing violent criminals in accordance with the law.

The "silent majority" in HK should be silent no more. Compatriots in Hong Kong should take action to stop the radicals, safeguard their homeland and prevent Hong Kong from sinking into an abyss.
