I see no one disputing that here, what's your point?

The global internet community, not just Hong Kong people, urge the Hong Kong administration to protect Edward Snowden, simply on the basis of civil liberty.

Yeah, don't count on UK for civil liberty when it involves US. We still have the wikileak boss holed up in Ecuador embassy in London to avoid extradition. Admittedly, it is a disgrace. So UK government can afford to have snowden in London.

If you hear the hk protesters message, Chinese government should let Hong Kong carried out its law. The fact that snowden chose hk over UK is a testimonial to hk civil liberty.

Is Shenzhen River deep enough to drown you?

You bastard should jump into that filthy river as you scumbag has a very convoluted and filthy mouth!

Are you an expat pretending to be a Chinese to cause more problem between people in China and Hong Kong?

This issue is not about Hong Kong's separation from the mainland. It is about a former American agent defecting to Hong Kong/China. China as a big country cannot hide its head in the sand anymore.

Do you moron understand it?

What an irony?

(1) The country which claims (pretends) to be victim of hacking is in fact the most advanced country in the world in information security technology, and whose IT firms dominate the world.

(2) The country which claims to be protector of information freedom, human rights and democracy is in fact the biggest hacker and runs the most extensive surveillance network together with its high tech firms and allies (Autralia, Japan, United Kingdom) to not only monitor activities of foreign countries but also American citizens in USA and overseas.

Snowden can't defect to UK or other NATO country.

Don't forget Julian Assange's (founder of wikileaks dot com)experience.

I'm sure China always knew about our NSA's hack of google, facebook etc. and hence its hostility towards them. I'm sure China is doing the same with its own social networks. Only difference is our hypocrisy knows no bounds.

The difference is when China first discovered about it through her intelligence, she takes very quiet and positive step to eliminate the loopholes.

USA responded by politicizing the issue and in the process demonize China e.g. Google, facebook, etc. Ignorant netizens who believe the USA version started attacking the authority as being dictatorial without knowing the truth about the breach in security of China.

Although on the surface China and USA appears normal, in fact they are hotly engaged in cyber-warfare today. That is why this is not beneficial to both countries as Global Terrorism will not be resolved.

USA and the Western hidden hands in Syria is unknown to most ignorant Americans but not to us.

Like in the case of Iraq, USA is using chemical weapon as an excuse to interfere in the war in Syria. Sound familiar?

Many states are silently happy that both Russia and China in the UNSC is protecting the principle of independence of sovereignty states as enshrine in the UN chapters. But Western Media are demonizing both Russian and China instead. Russia is now inviting China to intervene by sending their troops there but will China agrees. I do not think so.
