Brain - China warns Hong Kong protesters not to mistake restraint for weakness
Key Highlights

Radical protesters must not mistake China's restraint for weakness, China's Hong Kong affairs office said

"I would like to warn all of the criminals: don't ever misjudge the situation and mistake our restraint for weakness," the Chinese government's Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office said in a document issued during a briefing in Beijing

The protests surpassed once again to meet any of the protesters' demands

The protests are the greatest political threat to Hong Kong's government since the territory returned to Chinese rule in 1997, and one of the biggest popular challenges to Xi Jinping
