Hong Kong and China ‘heading for bigger showdown’

"The situation is heading for a bigger showdown," said Michael Tien, a businessman and Hong Kong lawmaker who represents the territory in China's rubber-stamp National People's Congress, which is holding annual meetings this week. "Beijing is convinced that it was too liberal and that this has allowed Hong Kong to be destabilised. But the tighter they squeeze Hong Kong, the more the resistance. The DNA of Hong Kong people is different from mainlanders because of our history and upbringing."
