LIGNET's Chang: China Deploys 'Goons' in Hong Kong

By    |   Friday, 03 Oct 2014 07:35 PM

The Chinese government may be employing Mafia toughs to take on protestors in Hong Kong in a bid to stop residents on the mainland from launching a similar rebellion, according to lawyer Gordon Chang, a contributor to the global forecasting and intelligence service LIGNET.

"Today we saw the goons attack pro-democracy demonstrators,'' Chang told Rick Ungar and John Fund, guest hosts of Friday's edition of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The communist party is worried that people in Shanghai are going to say, well what about me? Why can't I vote in an election?"

"Therefore they might want to use force in Hong Kong to teach a lesson not only to the people in Hong Kong, but more important to the people in Mainland China itself."

The massive protests were triggered by China's announcement in August that while Hong Kong residents will be able to vote for their next leader in 2017, only those candidates approved by Beijing can run.

The demonstrations are the most turbulent protests China has seen since taking control of Hong Kong from the British in 1997.

"The Mafia, [has been] very prevalent in Hong Kong, especially after Britain handed Hong Kong to China," Chang said.

The Triads have become very, very powerful in Hong Kong and today we saw them attack the pro-democracy demonstrators, two separate locations, same tactics, at the same time.

"[The police] were pepper spraying students who were running down Triad members who had attacked them, and so the police were allowing the Triad members to escape. This shows that there is very close coordination on the part of the Hong Kong government with Beijing, with the Triads, with the police."
