Following what many have described as the most violent weekend yet after 86 days, or 13 weeks of pro-Democracy protests in Hong Kong, which have led to the arrest of at least 1,117 residents, where the local police is now deploying water cannon in response to “rioters” using petrol bombs, China appears to have finally had enough and on Sunday, Beijing issued a stern ultimatum to not only Hong Kong protesters, but also the West on Sunday, reiterating that it will not tolerate any attempt to undermine Chinese sovereignty over the city.

“The end is coming for those attempting to disrupt Hong Kong and antagonize China,” stated a commentary piece published by the state’s Xinhua News Agency.

According to the Nikkei, the ultimatum was directed at “the rioters and their behind-the-scene supporters” – which should be interpreted as China’s latest accusation of Western meddling, with the article warning that “their attempt to ‘kidnap Hong Kong’ and press the central authorities is just a delusion,” adding, “No concession should be expected concerning such principle issues.”

The commentary said three red lines must not be crossed:

no one should harm Chinese sovereignty,
challenge the power of the central authorities
use Hong Kong to infiltrate and undermine the mainland.

“Anyone who dares to infringe upon these bottom lines and interfere in or damage the ‘one country, two systems’ principle will face nothing but failure,” the piece declared. “They should never misjudge the determination and ability of the central government… to safeguard the nation’s sovereignty, security and core interests.”
