thing with the. protests. in a critical. but i somehow cover weeks now i thought the reason the prize. come to this author all we have live rounds being fired although one of soccer fired up and. today's protests were banned by police why are people so determined to take to the streets on china's national day. now there are more well there are those. are the people. i don't love them off on the strong coast on the phone from problems of all. the mother to long haul down the well who want someone who was once more how come come.
71 of those who found it was time the people who want to care for all the mobile phones and to some other who are. sort of wild about the money not want to. stay with a shell that will hear from some of the protesters and come back to you. so one thing i got it i think the one called people got to be fully involved if you don't go out today probably even if every last chance that you could go out after after so no less no fight what happened in the last 100 days or so we're seeing that $1.03 to me getting a lot blessed and been told so i feel like today when there was a national day or anything we have to come out we. don't want to be an out of mainland china city because the government and the hong kong police don't one hong kong people to go out today but i think the basic law protect it is our right so we want to fight for our own right and freedom and we don't want to do this
today we re come to say so why so i would ask have. no. criminal. citizen see your home you just fight for freedom stand for phone call. to show itself some peril and hong kong i shall get your sense of some video footage showing a protest by a lone woman talk us through it as we watch. yeah i'm not that long ago we were soaping district packed with. one woman on the price. but a lot more got out of line with more thought she had. wrapped around her was not the way. so far toward. going back he was confronting. her the break or the number thought to borrow.
some of the other part of the bargain. we couldn't. confront the one who got. 7 her. the really wrong. child has chosen and hong kong thank you for that. so as you mentioned china is staging huge celebrations to mock 70 years of communist role the people's republic of china has changed beyond all recognition since it was founded after better civil war with nationalists today presentation pink told the guy that crowd said the country's development would be peaceful but that its minute she would safeguard its sovereignty and security. strength discipline and vision this was the message from
a state that has defied the odds for 70 years on tuesday the world's longest surviving communist nation celebrated its achievements on a grand scale standing where chairman mao proclaimed the people's republic in 1949 president struck a combative note. today a socialist china is standing proudly in the world's east. and no force can change the position of our great motherland and no force can stop the chinese people and the chinese nation from stepping forward. the spectacle that followed was designed to highlight china's rise from a nation in despair to a global superpower. at the forefront of that newfound confidence a display of military might on a massive scale advanced weaponry including nuclear capable mistrials rumbling
through beijing. the event comes at a crucial time growth is slowing as the trade war with the u.s. takes its toll on the economy and calls for more democracy grow louder both in hong kong and among the middle classes in mainland china. i spoke with former boss is it to china. asked him if the celebrations were purely for domestic consumption. yes indeed you see the whole population is excluded from the celebrations the joy that she jingping in this speech this morning spoke as cannot cannot would be seen why because this is a strong message to the people of the people it is not only china has risen china's the 2nd greatest economic power in the world it is also the party has achieved this this is the best mainly about the party 70 years ago 28 years of civil war and war ended there were 6 super and 6 in the ration of joy because the party had finally
created peace in china and now china has achieved so much more under the leadership of the communist party don't forget that that is the message why i one of president g. is his grip on power now absolute and unchallenged. well it's not on challenge because there are unfortunately for him there's the hong kong problem which he has not managed to resolve so that obviously is for the chinese to see even so the interpretation of what's happening there is carefully scripted by the party but still it is obviously a scratch in his image and it creates doubts on this authority but basically of course he has still been attached to show he has it calmed and he may be the strongest political his strongest political leader ever since more it's a term that's is the image she wanted to create and i think he achieved that and so how visible than 30 hong kong protests to people in mainland china. well as
a set this is carefully. controlled to the news out of our kong so obviously the message is these are. rebels against the mother country and they have no no effect at all but still it happens and it happens since months now and obviously one child and 2 systems is not a system that would enable the communist party to control what is happening in hong kong that is something in which there is xi jinping would like to cool off and so he is powerful and that's what he wanted to show so that as a that's this little scratch in his image that even the majority of the people in the people's republic who quite believe what the party tells them namely these are rebels without consequence what they see. that was former german
