To protect the lives and property of citizens. Hong Kong can no longer go on in chaos, the lives and property of the people can no longer be lost in vain, and "one country, two systems" can no longer bleed. Fighting violence and rioting is the greatest well-being of Hong Kong, the will of the people and the entrustment of the Central people's Government to the Hong Kong Special Administrative region (SAR). The SAR Government must transform the affirmation and trust of the Central people's Government into the force of violence and rioting.

It has brought great confidence and injected great strength into the SAR Government and all sectors of the community to combat violence and riots. President Xi has made demands on stabilizing the situation in Hong Kong and guided navigation, giving the SAR Government strong support in curbing violence. Without fear of violence and obscenity, the public have come forward to restore order. What is more, the Government must show its commitment and courage, take positive actions, act vigorously, stop violence and contain chaos, restore the stability of the rule of law, and live up to the ardent expectations of the Central people's Government and the people of Hong Kong.
