Bold tactic - let's see how this works out for the protesters ….
Quote
Chinese soldiers issued a warning to Hong Kong protesters on Sunday who shone lasers at their barracks in the city, in the first direct interaction with mainland military forces in four months of anti-government demonstrations.

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) garrison in Kowloon district warned a crowd of a few hundred protesters they could be arrested for targeting its troops and barracks walls with laser lights.

One officer shouted through a loudhailer in broken Cantonese - the main language of Hong Kong - “Bear consequences for your actions.”

The stand-off with the PLA came after rallies attended by tens of thousands of protesters earlier on Sunday ended in violent clashes in several locations. Police fired tear gas and baton-charged the crowds, while some demonstrators threw bricks and petrol bombs at police as night fell ...

Not an invasion, but just helping out, right?

Chinese soldiers marched out of their barracks for the first time in more than five months of civil unrest in Hong Kong to help clear roadblocks and debris left by radical protesters.

Unarmed and dressed in plain clothes, about 50 soldiers in two neatly arrayed files strode out of the Kowloon East barracks at about 4pm. They immediately began to clear Renfrew Road, which the barracks share with Baptist University’s campus.

One of the soldiers said their action had nothing to do with the Hong Kong government.

“We volunteered! Stopping violence and ending chaos is our responsibility,” he said, quoting a phrase used by President Xi Jinping.

Joined by dozens of local residents, firefighters and police officers, the soldiers made quick work of the roadblocks, barbed wire and bricks left behind by protesters earlier. At 5pm, they regrouped and marched back to their barracks, shouting patriotic slogans in unison ...

The PLA was deployed on trash pickup in Hong Kong. With the protests The use of the Army in a non threatening manner sent a very public message to all in HK.

It looked more like the Gypsy's warning.....

This* from Chinese military media, outlining the need for no worries with the latest PLA clean-up detail in Hong Kong ...
Quote
Several Video clips on November 16 captured a group of Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Hong Kong Garrison soldiers, with their casual clothes, gathering debris and cleaning up the road barricades left by the protesters near the Hong Kong Baptist University.

Some voices accused the PLA soldiers' of not having the permission from either the SAR Government or the Central Government, which would violate the Garrison Law of the HKSAR, and assumed recklessly that further interference from the Hong Kong Garrison would be imperative in the coming days.

Regardless of their intentions, those irresponsible and over-interpreting words make no sense logically.

After experiencing a week-long escalated nightmarish violence and chaos in Hong Kong, the lamed city is in his worst condition and needs to recover from the unrest urgently. Numerous Hong Kong citizens have made great efforts to keep the city functioning since the rioters started to paralyze roads, loot shops and sabotage transportation systems.

With the aid of all forces to save the city, the PLA is not an exception. According to a PLA officer, their cleaning up actions are voluntary and only aimed at the HK residents' convenience.

Actually, it is not the first time that the PLA participated in charitable activity. In October 2018, after Typhoon Mangkhut invaded Hong Kong, more than 400 PLA soldiers helped remove the fallen trees in HK's country parks.

Last year, the Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-chiu said the PLA could freely decide on whether to send soldiers in to perform volunteer services outside military sites and the local government had no record of how many times this had happened.

Besides, the Hong Kong Garrison has also taken part in various voluntary activities like tree planting and blood donation events or visiting elderly homes and kindergartens in different districts of Hong Kong.

Thus in no way should the soldiers' actions to voluntarily clean up the street be seen as a breach to the Basic law. But the controversy and sensitivity it has raised have only again demonstrated the deep-rooted biases some Hong Kong people have towards the Central Government: that they do not care what they are doing but only what they represent. In fact, according to some video footage circulating online, the PLA was cheered and appreciated by many passers-by ...

Not directly related to the military, but just an indication of how someone who's been able to sneak past all sorts of social media firewalls has been able to gamify the Hong Kong riots ...
Quote
According to China’s state-operated Global Times, there’s a new hit mobile game called Fight the Traitors Together, which lets players join in assaulting and beating Hong Kong protesters.

While the source of the game is unknown, the glowing writeup it received in the Global Times implies that it has at least tacit sanction as a work of propaganda, especially since there is little evidence on Chinese social media that the game has attracted any real audience. In an undeniably clumsy way, it points at the increasing violence and official intolerance being directed at the Hong Kong protesters.

Fight the Traitors Together, which can be played in web browsers and on phones, features what is clearly meant to be unflattering cartoon versions of prominent Hong Kong activists such as Joshua Wong and Nathan Law. Players whack them with hands, flip-flops, and baseball bats in the game, the quirky tone of which is rather at odds with the graveness of the protests, which have been rumbling in the semi-autonomous region since June ...
More from CHN nationalist media ...

An online game calling on players to hunt down traitors who seek to separate Hong Kong from China and fuel street violence has reportedly begun to attract players across Chinese mainland social media platforms.

The game, "fight the traitors together," is set against the backdrop of the social unrest that has persisted in Hong Kong. The script asks the player to find eight secessionists hidden in the crowd participating in Hong Kong protests.

Players can knock them down with slaps or rotten eggs until they are captured. Online gamers claim the game allows them to vent their anger at the separatist behavior of secessionists during the recent Hong Kong riots.

The eight traitors in the game, caricatured based on real people, include Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, Martin Lee Chu-ming and Joshua Wong Chi-fung, prominent opposition figures who have played a major role in inciting unrest in Hong Kong. There are also traitor figures in ancient China.

"Hong Kong is part of China and this can't be meddled with by outside powers," reads the game cover page.

"The practices of these modern traitors have long been irritating," Yang Qian, one player told the Global Times. "While they are free in real life, at least in the game they should pay for what they have done."

In the game, amid a crowd of black-clad rioters wearing yellow hats and face masks, Anson Chan Fang On-sang, another leading opposition figure, carries a bag with a US flag, clutches a stack of US dollars and holds a loudspeaker to incite violence in the streets. The game also features Western faces, including characters that appear to be Julie Eadeh, a political unit chief of the US consulate general in Hong Kong.
This may feel familiar to anyone who's seen Starship Troopers ...
