With the launch of the constitutional reform consultation, "Occupy Central" has aroused wide public concern. "Occupy" is meant to forcibly take possession of geographic space; to forcibly take control of a territory or a position. The word "occupy" has important implications that involve the controversy over "legal" or "illegal" and whether it will affect the various areas including people's living, security state, social order, the normal operation of the financial, industrial and commercial sectors including the hotel and tourism businesses, the financial stability of our economy and local and foreign investment.
And those three main Organisers of "Occupy Central" clearly states that civil disobedience is an unlawful act. Definitely, "Occupy Central" movement and its impact on society and participants.
Roads are blocked, ambulance cannot go to certain area in case of emergency, many people (tourism Sector) has immediate pay cut due to reduced visits, Shops are not having many customers, those Watch and jewelry shop in Mongkok would be affected serious as if there is riot, they get no claims from their insurance policy , Hellenwinner, Chow Tai Fok, Chow Send, Seng, Oriental, Kwan Yan and Vintage Concept (could be better as it is not situated at Nathan Road).
He would be taking the freedom of most of the people free will to Occupy the road perform some kind of his Request for the Constitutional reform has already impacts our daily lives seriously.
Many of Watch fever readers ask, would it be an effect to the Watch sales in HK?
Yes, I believe those shops at Nathan Road have already reduced 60% of the sales I the October, I have known a few Friends on the blog has cancel or postpone his flight to HK buying Rolex. Even Some of the Rolex AD in TST has been affected, as people is sick of seeing this chaotic noisy tug of war episode on screen, I wonder why people would gather there not to join but to WATCH the protest at Mongkok. Really Mong Kok is a City of no Sleep!
Usually I help at least 5-8 people buying Rolex at AD in a month, now so far since Oct 1 , I have “0” visitor.
That is already an Index to reflect the HK Economy, I really wish that it would come to an end soon whatever way!
HK is being watched under an ambush mode by the adjacent countries and US to get a chance to fish in the financial sector. At the end, who are the loser!?
