Hong Kong; from the Hong Kong Standard today

"Violent tactics will kill support base: Lau
(12-02 11:04)

The chairwoman of the Democratic Party says if pro-democracy protesters resort to violence, they'll lose the support of people who originally backed the Occupy movement.
Emily Lau Wai-hing was commenting on Monday' s clashes between demonstrators and police.
Protesters have been holding peaceful blockades across Hong Kong since September but are becoming frustrated at the lack of response from the government to their demands.
Lau told RTHK this morning that the Occupy movement had to make sure its message got across, adding that most people in Hong Kong supported democracy but might not support the occupation strategy. --RTHK"
