CRECCHKI strongly condemns the rapidly escalating violence of the extremists in recent days. Radical behaviour wreaked havoc on the city including the arson committed at various places, vandalism of public facilities, hurling of petrol bombs and suspected corrosive substances at police officers, intentional paralysis of traffic and transport network, and assaults on police officers and citizens. Many banks and shops were targeted by the extremists who broke into the shops, damaged the security gates of banks and set fire inside. The riots have already affected many businesses in the city and threatened the livelihoods of ordinary citizens.


We respect the public’s freedom to express views as well as the right to lawful assembly. However, we are against any form of illegal and violent acts which seriously disrupted our community. We support the enactment of anti-mask law and we believe this is one of the solutions to restore order in our city. We also trust the Hong Kong Police Force is capable to maintain law and order in our city and we support the police to use appropriate force to stop the outrageous violence.


Violence never seems to be a solution but rather a problem itself. We support the Hong Kong Government to continue peaceful and rational dialogue with the public and find solutions to some of the social problems.

 

Let’s build a better Hong Kong together.

全國工商聯房地產商會香港及國際分會強烈譴責近日激進示威者不斷升級的暴力行為,包括在各處縱火、刑事毀壞公眾設施及政府公物、向警務人員投擲汽油彈及懷疑腐蝕性物體等、意圖癱瘓各區的交通及交通網絡系統,甚至襲擊市民。許多銀行及商店成為激進示威者的破壞及攻擊目標。他們闖入商店,破壞銀行保安閘門,闖入縱火。暴亂已對本港眾多行業及普通市民生計造成嚴重的負面影響。

 

我們尊重公眾表達意見、言論及集會的自由。但我們反對任何違法及暴力行為而嚴重擾亂香港社會安寧。我們支持制定反蒙面法並相信這是恢復香港秩序的解決辦法之一。我們亦相信香港警隊有能力維護社會秩序,並支持警方使用適當武力,對所有違法及暴力行為嚴正執法。

 

暴力從來不是解決問題的辦法。我們支持政府繼續與市民進行理性和平的對話,並找出解決各種社會問題的方案。

 

讓我們一起建設更美好的香港。
