AFP, HONG KONG

Tai said protesters had learned from the failures of 2014 and modified their protest tactics, with the current movement providing a long-awaited “break-out point.”

Echoing the protesters’ demands, he said a “general pardon, including unlawful acts of police and protesters” during this period and an independent inquiry are “needed in the short run.”

However, there is seemingly no end in sight to the turmoil engulfing the territory.

Lam has shown no sign of backing down beyond agreeing to suspend the extradition bill.
