Tiananmen: China rebukes Pompeo on 30th anniversary of protests https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-48508202
Mr Pompeo criticised China's human rights record and called for it to reveal how many died in the crackdown.
A Chinese embassy spokesman in Washington DC said his comments were "an affront to the Chinese people".
In 1989, a large political protest in Beijing triggered a brutal clampdown by the communist authorities.

An estimated 1 million Hong Kong residents take to the streets over a new extradition law with the mainland. Now that is a protest.

As much as I agree with their protests, it'll do little for them. There's nothing HK citizens can do as they are now a part of China and have no recourse.
