Suitcases stuffed with hundreds of thousands of dollars. Luxury watches. Trips to the sauna. This is a story of bribery and western companies in China.

With China again threatening to block rare-earth exports to the US as a weapon in the trade war, I visited one of its mining strongholds to look at how it does—and doesn’t—have leverage. (1/)

Quoted @JanePerlez

A mother, her four children went to Belgian embassy in Beijing for visas to join the father in Brussels. They are Uighur Muslims. Belgians evicted them. Chinese cops drove them 30 hours home for possible detention. Where are they? My story @janeperlez https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/18/world/asia/china-xinjiang-uighurs-belgium.html …

This is shocking. They were dragged away after the Chinese police were allowed to enter the embassy.

For many mainland Chinese, Hong Kong has been a refuge that offers safety while still being close to China. They worry that could soon change. From ⁦@emilysteel⁩ and ⁦@caocli

“I would like to tender my sincere apologies to the citizens of Hong Kong. I have come to understand I could have done better, I should have done a better job.” - Carrie Lam https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/18/world/asia/hong-kong-carrie-lam-apology.html …

An embattled leader who starts a sentence “I would like to tender my...” usually ends it differently. Did she just troll the whole of Hong Kong?

For the next stage of damage control, will Carrie Lam break out the first-person apology?

"For decades, Beijing has asked the former British colony for loyalty, if not love. Time and again, its people have responded with distrust, if not loathing." Sharp piece by @gerryshih on Hong Kong's fierce rejection of China's dominance:

Today's The Daily podcast from the New York Times is on Hong Kong. @mikiebarb and crew for made me sound far smarter than I felt after yesterday's protests. And Amos Yip, out marching a week before his high school graduation, was a great interview

In my past street reporting, Hong Kongers were suspicious and reluctant to speak to strangers. This is different. Seeing our neon-orange press vests, protesters in a congested spot cleared a path to let @jotted and me pass, as they did for ambulances, wheelchairs, buses, etc.

Still processing the kindness extended to me and my fellow reporters these past few days. Offers of water, food and goggles. People pulling us away when tear gas was fired. Crowds parting to help us move. I'm used to being ignored at best and, at worse, threatened.

Just drove by Pacific Place, and passing all the flowers left there for the protester who died was quite moving. Hong Kong is a huge bustling place where people often keep their heads down but these past few days the city reminded us again that it has heart.

Parents in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region took to the streets on Sunday to urge US politicians to not interfere with the SAR's extradition amendments and its internal affairs. #HongKong

Goodness. This is quite remarkable.

Like many in the crowd, they wanted to see Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, step down. “I think that most people want her to not to withhold but to withdraw the bill. Most people want her to step down,” Mr. Ho said. Read for from today’s protest:

His father, Chris Ho, said they were shocked to see tear gas being used Wednesday on protesters who surrounded a government building. "Teenagers came out and they fought for the future, but the reaction from the government and police was quite aggressive."

They all wanted to speak when I approached them. But Torrey Ho, one of the three kids, was really bursting to talk. “We need to speak out for freedom,” he said. “He described the experience of marching today as “unforgettable,” mainly “because I can shout.”

Many stories coming out from Hong Kong's peaceful demonstration. I'd like to share one. I met a family of nine, spanning three generations. The grandfather marched last Sunday. Today the whole family decided to come out together after witnessing events that unfolded this week

It’s 11pm and there is still a crowd surrounding Hong Kong’s Legislative Council building. The mood is at times festival-like and cheers broke out after the organisers of today’s march say 2 million attended the demonstration

At a vigil for a man who police say jumped of metal scaffolding after unfurling a banner in protest of a proposed extradition bill, hundreds of people in the crowd hold up their phones

Today the people of Hong Kong march again in protest of a controversial bill. Even though Carrie Lam backed down yesterday, promising to postpone the bill, her critics say it’s not enough

Packed subway full of people dressed in black headed to the start of today’s parade. Seems Carrie Lam’s suspension of the extradition bill doing little to cut turnout.
