Os Estivadores de Hong Kong solidarizaram-se com os estudantes, um ano depois dos estudantes se terem solidarizado com eles: “A year ago, students stood out for us. And now, we will stand for them. Today we are allowed to have 15-minute break and to go to toilet during work. It is all because students stood out and fought with us. I decide to strike today, support students classroom boycotts, and I won’t go back to work tonight. This is my own decision, and I understand I might get fired. But I am clear what I am doing!”
Assim se alargam as fronteiras da guerra aberta contra o capital e o imperialismo chinês.
