Thus, Fan said it was not strange that some people from Taiwan were assisting and financing the violent protesters.

The city was in shock after masked radical protesters escalated violence on July 1 by上海千花坊

storming into the city’s legislature and vandalizing the complex, resulting in an early recess of the legi

One of the lawless intruders, who took off his mask, was identified as a “pro-Hong Kong in

It was also reported by the media that a large group of violent rioters had fled to Taiwan to seek

上海千花坊Currently, liberal studies is a compulsory subject and examinations also are required.

“If students want to make high marks, they must follow what the teachers teach them an

d adapt to the style of the examination papers. In case the liberal studies teachers have上海千花坊品茶微信

strong political inclinations, they will instill anti-China and anti-establishment ideas in the mind of students.”
