Hong Kong Tycoon Warns Protesters and Beijing Against Violence
Hong Kong’s richest man bought the full front pages of many local newspapers Friday morning to run a pair of ads that cautioned protesters and authorities against further violence.

Some pro-Beijing scholars admit it is not that Beijing does not know the popular will of the pro-democracy movement, but rather that it has neither the will nor the intention to act upon their demands.

“Take the calls for universal suffrage as an example,” said Lau, the former Hong Kong government adviser. “In Beijing’s eyes, there are still anti-communist and anti-China forces in Hong Kong, who are hoping to seize power to rule Hong Kong via general election.
