The commentary said carrying weapons, smashing facilities, setting fires, blocking main streets and harassing passers-by, wherever the radicals have ventured, streets lie deserted, with shops closed and destruction in their wake.
 
Hong Kong's GDP in the second quarter increased by only 0.6 percent in real terms year on year with the three sectors of catering, tourism and retailing hit the hardest.
 
The commentary said these scenes, so unbearable to anyone with love for Hong Kong, are exactly what the radicals and their behind-the-scenes string-pullers desire.
 
It noted that by taking a look at the regions around the world that underwent "color revolutions" instigated by Western forces, one sees case after case of civil war, social disorder, ethnic conflict and human suffering.
 
This cannot become the future of Hong Kong.
 
The commentary emphasized that it is the common aspiration of the Hong Kong people to stop violence and the chaos, so that Hong Kong can restore order and return to prosperity and harmony. Anyone who harms the city will surely be severely punished by law and condemned by the people.
