Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I leave this message because I want to indicate the words ‘including guns’ you used in the features article “Tufts students react to Hong Kong protests” are inappropriate. What the police used was tear gas, a legal weapon in dispersing demonstrators, but not guns, which may cause misunderstanding. What’s more, in my opinion, this report is not objective enough because of the lack of viewpoints from anti-occupy groups. In reality, the poll by the Chinese University of Hong Kong showed that only 31.3 percent of people in Hong Kong supported this occupation and 46.3 percent were against it. And after one week, there were severe conflicts between pro- and anti-occupy people because this movement had led to serious traffic jam as well as economic problems. Most of my Chinese friends in fact are clearly opposed to this so-called revolution because of the chaos the movement caused. I hope that Tufts Daily can reflect the facts comprehensively when reporting news regarding foreign politics.

Sincerely,

Yaoshen Yuan
