What they say
Taiwan independence is a dead end. Taiwan compatriots should be on the right side of history, understand where their future and interests lie, safeguard the prospect of the motherland’s peaceful reunification and jointly move toward that glorious future with mainland compatriots. The great motherland will always firmly back forces that uphold patriotism and support reunification. I appeal to all Chinese people to unite and pool our invincible power to achieve the historic mission of the motherland’s complete reunification and jointly write a new chapter of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
Liu Jieyi, head of the Taiwan Work Office of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council
Hong Kong people have unique conditions to carry forward the great aspirations of the revolutionaries, as these historic events took place where Hong Kong people now live. The special administrative region government has launched many heritage conservation programs to protect these historic sites and promote and pass on the revolutionary spirit.

Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the country is moving steadily toward a future of higherquality development. The “Hong Kong dream” will be realized under the Chinese Dream.
