A central government spokesperson on Monday called on people in Hong Kong to take a clear-cut stand to oppose and resist violence.

Yang Guang, spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, made the appeal at a press conference held in Beijing.

The development in the situation in Hong Kong, especially the violent acts of a small number of radicals, has severely damaged Hong Kong's overall situation of prosperity and stability, severely challenged Hong Kong's rule of law and social order, severely threatened the safety of Hong Kong residents' life and property, crossed the bottom line of the "one country, two systems," which are absolutely intolerable, Yang said.

Noting that no civilized society ruled by law can tolerate the prevalence of violence, Yang said he hopes that Hong Kong residents can see clearly the seriousness of the current situation, denounce the evil deeds and crimes committed by the radicals and stop their misdeeds damaging Hong Kong.
