Ideas

In January 2017, protests begin once again in Hong Kong as new Restriction laws are approved by the National People's Congress, believed by many Hongkongers as a step to full annexation. Riots and civil unrest in the region increases, soon resulting in tourists being advised not to enter.

With this, as well as other strains, in February, the Chinese economy suffers a complete breakdown. Almost immediately, the unrest in Tibet increases, whilst peaceful protests begin in East Turkestan and Inner Mongolia. However, as these get more violent, these areas are quickly declared independent. The PRC declares military action against them, whilst the Republic of China, based on Taiwan, declares war on these movements, in an attempt to retain legitimacy. By late February reports of Russian troops movements near the Manchurian border.

In April, Taiwan recognises the Tibet, Uyghurstan (East Turkestan/Xinjiang) and Inner Mongolian governments, and sends diplomats to negotiate with them.. The rioters in Lasa, Tibet, manage to throw out the pro-Beijing government. The soldiers and police, now leaderless, either retreat, desert, surrender, or some few ever defect. On the 17th India moves troops into the now vacant Kashmir, and begins discussions with Tibet on assisting them. There are also talks of the return of the Dalai Lama.

Meanwhilst Hong Kong has descended into near anarchy. Several Embassies in Hong Kong withdraw after the British embassy is ransacked. China immiatly declares marshall law, and removes Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, claiming that he was unable to fullfull his role. The situation is out of hand now in Tibet, with the region almost completely independent, whilst Uygurstan is experiencing fighting between a democratic government, the PRC and an Islamist group. Meanwhile, Mongolia has assisted Inner Mongolia, though has not yet given military aid.

In July, China finally resorts to moving troops into Yuen Long, Tsuen Wan, Lantau Island, Tai Po and Kowloon. Whilst being able to originally hold these areas, the troops sent are outnumbered in Kowloon, and the PLA units are forced to retreat to their stronghold in San Tin in Yuen Long. The new Chief Executive, an installed military chief, narrowly escapes after militias storm the Government House. With little options and seeming weak, China begins to withdraw troops, whilst starting the bombing of ports and small towns, allowing a counter-offensive into these towns.

India has now pledged full support of Tibet, and its army moves into Tibet, helping secure it. The war in Uyghurstan increases. However, in October, Russian troops are reported in Manchuria, and in December locals declare a Republic of Manchuria, though many media outlets report it as being a Russian puppet.

The bombing of Hong Kong intensifies, resulting in the UN establishing a no fly zone over Hong Kong and parts of Southern China. The raids catch the eye of Taiwan, they retaliate by military intervention taken advantage over China’s weaknesses and hoping to end China's rule in Hong Kong. A Month later the Taiwanese Forces set up a provisional government and created the National Liberation Front of Hong Kong form by the first Independent Party, the Hong Kong National Party.

"The Future of Hong Kong, 2027 During the 2020's Hong Kong reaches a tipping point cause by riots and civil unrest in the region brought on by new Restriction laws approved by the National People's Congress. Many Hongkongers begin to believe that this is one step from a full Chinese annexation of Hong Kong. Anarchy soon takes over and tourists are warned not to enter or go to Hong Kong in fear of endangerment. In 2026 Several Embassies settled in Hong Kong closes after a British embassy was ransacked by rioters, China's reactions is immediate, declaring martial law on the region and the removal of Hong Kong's Head representative Chunan Pin on the grounds that he was unable to fulfill his duties as chief executive. His replacement was a former Military General from Shanxi Province unlike Chunan Pin who is himself a Hongkonger. The following year riots in Hong Kong worsens as police and riot squads are put in high alert however protests over restrictions and increasing distrust over China results in a major mutiny within Hong Kong law enforcement. Riot squads make common cause with the protesters and form militia groups against the government. With authority out of control the People's Republic of China authorize an attack on Hong Kong while sending a small army to remove Anti-Chinese Militias posing as a threat to Chinese rule over Hong Kong.

The Troops are sent to the Yuen Long, the Tsuen Wan, the Lantau Island and the Tai Po Districts as well as the city of Kowloon but astonishingly they are outnumbered and suffer heavy casualties forcing the Chinese to retreat to their small stronghold of San Tin in the District of Yuen Long, before long the chief executive flees Hong Kong narrowly avoiding the militias storming into Government House. Defeated and with little options, China arranges a full-scale invasion of Hong Kong first by bombing major ports and small towns allowing them to enter freely whilst simultaneously weakening the opposes.

The first bombing raid begins within days after Chinese forces pulls out of Hong Kong, the result causes the UN to establish a no fly zone over Hong Kong and parts of Southern China. The raids caught the eye of Taiwan, they retaliate by military intervention taken advantage over China’s weaknesses and hoping to end China's rule in Hong Kong. A Month later the Taiwanese Forces set up a provisional government and created the National Liberation Front of Hong Kong form by the first Independent Party, the Hong Kong National Party. The flag of Hong Kong is also altered slightly changing the red background into a more conservative blue and removing the Red stars from the Hong Kong Orchid Tree flower in the centre. Before long Hong Kong establishing its own army and becomes an Independent state which is recognised by Several Countries including Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia as well as partial recognition in the Philippines and Germany (who is the first European country to recognised Hong Kong as an independent state). By 2029 China announced a ceasefire and withdraws all of its forces base in Hong Kong failing to crush the resistances however China never recognizes Hong Kong's sovereignty, this also includes countries that have close ties with China like Russia, Pakistan and Zimbabwe. Throughout the 2030's Hong Kong slowly rebuilds itself economically, becomes a Member of the United Nations and ceremonially re-enters into the Commonwealth just months before the 26th Commonwealth Games commences."
