dissent. it's a startling visual reminder of the power of paper and pen face clashes this week left many concerns that message is being eclipsed by violence. but step away from the protest front lines of the scale of peaceful dissent becomes clear. this train station now an ever growing testimony to the resilience of activists and the people power that fuels them. when you walk through this tunnel the sheer number of messages papering these moves is really overwhelming no to all to note these protesters to carry on what the protest movement now needs to work out is how to maintain the momentum and this level of support over the coming weeks. just 15 years old this young activist is choosing post at night and priestesses as her new weapon of protest. once on the front lines of the demonstrations herself

support of the government now this protest here has been authorized the police is said very clearly that people are not allowed to stray from the permitted route but what we have seen so many times over the last few weeks is that these protesters do do spreads they do break those police rules and occasionally yes they do and in clashes ok now a chinese state media editorial this week stated that if hong kong can't restore the rule of law on its own it will it is quite imperative for the central government to take direct action now what to statements like that suggests what effect that they having on the protesters. clearly there is a big cause of concern for people who are on the streets here that ram tough rhetoric is happening in tandem with images that we're seeing of the palin merely paramilitary people's arms police who are taking part in exercises along the border

very very close from hit to here so people to all concerned although most people that we spoke to don't think that they are going to see imminently any troops from beijing on the streets of hong kong people here believe that that is going to be too high a cost but they both politically and economically they believe that beijing has other ways of getting these protesters on these protests under control like for example putting pressure on authorities here to make sure they clamp down and we have heard from police in the last few days that they say that they can keep these protests under control protesters here they are deeply concerned about what that may mean they say that police are becoming increasingly heavy handed in dealing with these protests as they go on into the evening all right shiela telson killed reporting for us from hong kong thanks so much. all right let's have a look at some of the other stories making news around the world today a u.s.
