    In two back-to-back protests last weekend, police attempted to clear large crowds with rubber bullets and tear gas, while protesters pushed a flaming cart at police. Wright discusses eight broad categories of protest that have emerged in the generation since then, marked by breakneck modernization without political freedom. Ethnic Hui people in the region also experience tensions with the Han population. Much of the violence was broadcast or streamed live by news media. Some were killed.

Then, in November, the local riot squad was again mobilized to break up an anti-incinerator protest in Wenlou, Guangdong province—just 60 miles from Hong Kong. The Xiamen plant was cancelled, and a Ministry of Environmental Protection formed the following year. Xi Jinping said the continuous radical violent activities in Hong Kong seriously trampled the rule of law and the social order, seriously disturb Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and seriously challenge the ''one country, two systems'' bottom line, the Xinhua report said. And on August 5th, protesters held a labor and transportation strike.

    The protests began in June over an extradition bill that would have allowed some Hong Kong suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial. Building that kind of solidarity, and somehow uniting the disparate and mostly spontaneous protest movements in China, holds the only hope of mounting a real challenge to the current system of capitalist totalitarianism that is, unfortunately, providing a model for despots around the world. The disquieting situation in Hong Kong, which continues to witness mass protests, especially by youth that often turned violent figured high in Xi's customary New Year's eve address over the national television on December Wang Zhimin, the director of its liaison office in Hong Kong who coordinates between the local government of the former British colony and the central government in Beijing, has been replaced, official media here reported. The arrest of year-old Deng Yujiaowho killed a local government official in self-defense when he tried to sexually assault her, sparked outrage among Chinese netizens, resulting in some four million posts online. Last month during his visit to Nepal, Xi was quoted as saying that any attempts to drive a wedge between China and its territories will "end in crushed bodies and shattered bones".
