中大歷史系教授：Ian MORLEY, professor of History Department CUHK
PLEASE SHARE: I'm on CUHK campus right now. What is obviously is that most protesters are not NOT CUHK students. They are persons from elsewhere, they are masked and dressed in black (as the student protesters were in the past days) but they are armed to the teeth with molotov cocktails and weapons of various descriptions. The situation is very tense - a dramatic change from my campus visit 24 hours ago - and most students have now left. Very few 'real students' about now!!! Yet the persons manning the barricades, etc., who are they?! So, don't come onto campus! It's extremely volatile and most persons from CUHK - staff and students - have gone. Also, be careful of statements from 'students' in the press. Who gave the statement about the bridge being reopened this morning? People I have spoken to don't know who they are. There are many persons on campus with their own agenda, and the ultimate outcome could be massive damage to the university infrastructure and university reputation! So, please share, it's apparently the same at other campuses in Hong Kong...the campuses are full of outsiders looking to cause trouble, and no doubt they will! Oh, and as before, no communication from the University administration! Why, oh why, is it so difficult for them to send an email?
