A contingent of the Chinese troops PLA from China entered Hong Kong at night on June 14 to prepare for the July 1 Handover anniversary. The contingent is described by HK media as serving an anti-protester purpose in the face of the increasing number of democratic protests held in HK this year, instability in China (the incoming changing of the CCP politburo this year), and instability in Hong Kong (the changing of the HKSAR government on July 1).
