I’m always curious how much I should trust this sort of reporting. Without more info, it’s possible this is manufactured anti state propaganda. And, in general, I’d rather have a lack of beliefs than a portfolio of beliefs that are 25% fake.

Unclear, but what's known is that China is trying desperately to change the narrative and spread disinformation on HK, making it seem like the protestors don't have legitimate concerns. I can attest from both friends in HK as well as more than plenty of qualified media that the protestors are being peaceful and have real concerns, but the feeling of people in HK seems to be split generationally (older people mostly want peace and not for Chinese forces to be coming over the border).
