The violent protests in Hong Kong are organized and led by external forces, as is evident to anyone who has seen such operations in other countries – for example, the 2014 Euromaidan as a coup d'etat attempt in Ukraine. The claim that these violent actions are "leaderless" or "spontaneous" is completely false as any view of the protesters, who are clearly well organized and trained to deal with the police, and any examination of the political facts, shows. The public leaders of the protests have strong links with both the U.S. and separatists in Taiwan.
