Hong Kong On The Edge: Chinese Troops Gather In Shenzen; 100s Of Flights Cancelled Over Protester "Terrorism"

Protesters flooded Hong Kong's airport, one of the busiest in the world, on Monday, forcing authorities to cancel more than 100 flights as demonstrators expressed their anger over the violent police response to protests the night before.

Video of the airport terminal showed thick crowds chanting protest slogans.





Amid the unrest, Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's flagship carrier, has reportedly fired two employees and suspended a pilot for participating in the protests. The airline said over the weekend that it would 'comply with a directive from China's aviation authority'. According to the FT, Cathay's move was "the starkest sign yet of Beijing's growing readiness to make high-profile businesses choose between the protesters and the government. The company's shares were off more than 4% in recent trade.

More broadly speaking, European equities sold off as the developments in Hong Kong created a risk off mood on a morning that was mostly devoid of data.

Per the NYT, the protesters gathered throughout the day, first filling up the arrival halls, before expanding upstairs to the departure halls. Monday's protest is a continuation of a three-day peaceful sit-in at the airport which began on Friday. It bore none of the violence that demonstrations on Sunday night had, where police fired tear gas inside a subway station and charged at protesters on an escalator.

Some incoming flights were being diverted to Taiwan.



Noel Tse, a 29-year-old nurse, said she participated in the sit-in at the airport because she thought the police had acted to aggressively on Sunday. "As a member of Hong Kong, this incident is no longer a political issue," Tse said. "It is a battle between right and wrong."

But even more ominously, over the border in Shenzen, the Chinese city that lies directly across from Hong Kong, Chinese People's Liberation Army forces were building up ahead of what appears to be a "apparent large-scale exercise," according to the Global Times. "Numerous" armored personnel carriers, trucks and other vehicles of the paramilitary police were seen heading towards Shenzhen over the weekend. That means the long-awaited military intervention from the mainland could be just around the corner - something that the Hong Kong people have condemned.

Yang Guang, spokesman from China’s Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office, said there should be a crackdown on violence in the city, during a briefing.

Though a military conflict in Hong Kong would certainly rattle global markets. Remember what Steve "the Big Short" Eisman said last week. His biggest fear right now are the Hong Kong protests, which he says could endanger any kind of trade deal with China and hurt the global economy. "If things escalate even further in Hong Kong, that would have a real impact back on the global economy."

I recommend EVA AIR via Taipei
a wonderful airline

Bonus: you can eat unlimited quantities of Mövenpick Ice Cream in the Taipei Star Business Lounge!

He works for Hong Kong Disney, so he should at least be safe. He is more worried about his job than anything else. I know a lady that works as a English Tutor for a wealthy Chinese family, I just texted her

The led strip I ordered on Wish has been stuck for days at Shenzhen exchange station. Not sure if that's normal or is related to what the Chinese government is doing to their citizens... This is just as bad as what France is doing to the yellow vests.

I have flown EVA, they are often the lowest cost out of Chicago. Its a good airline and you cant beat Chicago to SE Asia for $600 or so dollars


Im jealous, I have never made it into a business lounge at Taipei. But for an airport, they have good food and well priced drinks

Could very well be connected to whats happening there. I usually order electronic component parts from various places in China/Hong Kong via EBay.

My Thai wife (who pays minimum attention to "news") noticed on Thai TV that Thai flights to Hong Kong were cancelled.
