Photo Of The Day

10 Days In Beijing Air

The vice Dean of China Law University, He Bing put this photo on his blog: after 10 days' use, he washed his new air purifier, this is the result.

Thousands of Chinese bloggers have passed this photo around, and wonder how their lungs take all this in just days?!

Business booming!! ... On 4th Dec, Taobao, a Chinese online shop sold 30 thousands fabric face musks,  3 times the number of sales of past 2 weeks; on 5th Dec it sold 80 thousand face masks, 30 thousand to Beijing buyers. The sale of air filters also  increased by a multiple of 5.

Mr. He Bing's family live at the outer circle of the Beijing CBD, "five ring" area,  marked with red line below.

Hong Kong Warns Protesters Face Arrest PDF Print E-mail
Real China
VOA   

A senior Hong Kong official is warning protesters they face arrest if they do not clear the streets, where they have been camped out for weeks demanding democratic reforms.

Chief secretary Carrie Lam on Tuesday urged protesters to "quickly and peacefully" leave the roads, which she said are being "unlawfully occupied." She did not say if or when police would act to clear the sites.

Lam, the government's second-in-command, said she sees "no room for dialogue for the time being" with the student-led protesters, which she said have not demonstrated sincerity in previous talks.

On Monday, Hong Kong's High Court ruled that police could arrest protesters who defy attempts to clear the protest sites, raising fears of renewed clashes.

Past attempts by police to break up the protests have backlashed, causing the demonstrations to grow. At one point, tens of thousands of people joined the movement.

The protesters are calling for fully democratic elections in the semiautonomous Chinese territory's 2017 elections for chief executive. China ruled in August that all candidates must be approved by a committee stacked with pro-Beijing loyalists.
