- The HK protesters have LOST the propaganda war! They have LOST the moral high ground. How can you beat up anyone just because you suspect him of being a spy or undercover cop. Even if he is an undercover cop, it is ILLEGAL to beat him up as he is carrying out his duty.

A mainland journalist assaulted by anti-government protesters at Hong Kong International Airport received a hero’s welcome from dozens of supporters, after being discharged from hospital on Wednesday.
Fu Guohao, a reporter with Chinese state newspaper Global Times, was kicked and hit with umbrellas repeatedly by protesters on Tuesday night after refusing to show his press credentials, and was found with a T-shirt in his backpack featuring the slogan “I love HK police”.
Another man, who protesters believed was an undercover agent from mainland China, was earlier released from North Lantau Hospital, in Tung Chung. Protesters, who found him carrying wooden sticks, had bound his hands with cable-ties. Fu, who was wearing a white T-shirt and a face mask, spoke to media briefly before leaving Princess Margaret Hospital, in Kwai Chung, around midday.
“In Hong Kong, I complied with everything a citizen should do. I didn’t do anything unlawful or behave in a way that would stir up controversy,” he said. “I think I should not be treated violently. “I did not suffer from any serious injuries, but I felt pain in my head and hands.”
