The Hong Kong protests are now in its sixth month, but still, there is no end in sight.
The police force will likely be using more force to tackle the situation. China also needs to be tough despite this would damage its image in the international arena.
Any weakness from the Chinese side may lure other movements in China from minorities, such as the Uighurs, Kazakhs or Tibetans.
It is difficult to predict what would be the endgame. However, there are likely to be more unrest and more toughness from both the government and anti-government protesters.
Hong Kong has also now entered its first recession in a decade as protests continue. The Hong Kong economy reduced by 3.2% in July-September compared to the previous quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis.
