    Probably, the council of election can be spread to the Chinese workers in mainland China

    That’s the way to go about it. Mass demonstrations plus the vote. Not violence or “direct action” alone.

    Further demonstration of our contention that, when a mass movement gets off the ground and the opportunity to vote exists, the movement will use the ballot box. The same can be expected to apply to the movement for socialism, leaving anarchists, ultraleftists and other anti-parliamentarists on the sidelines shouting “don’t vote” as workers pass them by on the way to the polling stations.

    The cadres of the left wants worker to get kill or become martyr, others want the workers to be killed by the so called socialist government of China because they are recaionary and counter-revolutionary. Old Leninist principles

    It appears from this that the protests in Hong Kong have had some sort of echo on the mainland:

    Except these are not socialist/communist organizations. They are Stalinist-Maoist.

    UK could offer British National (Overseas) passport holders in Hong Kong a path to UK citizenship if China does not suspend plans for a security law in the territory, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says.
    There are 300,000 BNO passport holders in Hong Kong.  An estimated 2.9 million people are eligible for a BNO passport

    In itself I have no objection, the more the merrier, in fact, but we already see the reluctance of the UK government to give similar rights to EU and non-EU migrants who all have to go through many difficult hurdles to achieve residency much less citizenship.

    Imagine the uproar among the right-wing if he said he was issuing 300,000 UK passports to Syrian refugees so to admit them.

    Where now is the argument that we are a small overcrowded island and that foreigners will steal  “our” jobs.

    But more than likely it he is just posturing and the invite will only be for the well-off Hong Kongers as it was back in 1997.

    It is just a political game of the British government. Why they did not give British citizenship when Hong Kong was an English colony? The ruling class has always opened their national border when they need cheap labour, the rest is just bullshit

    Absolutely.
