Hong Kong Protest Shows Thirst for More Liberty

-Ron Paul
The pro-democracy demonstration in Hong Kong continues to grow, with tens of thousands joining the continuous rally now going on for more than three days.

Riot police and tear gas did nothing to thwart the crowds from forming. The government has rightly withdrawn the police and the demonstrations so far have continued peacefully. The police use of tear gas did nothing to dispel the crowds and probably caused more protesters to join in.
