Hong Kong protests

Mainland Chinese run scared as Hong Kong protests turn nasty

Businesses linked to China feel brunt of rising anti-Beijing sentiment

HONG KONG -- Rising anti-China sentiment among Hong Kong's protesters has made investment banker Joanna Li so anxious that she is thinking about packing up and leaving the city.

"When I came to Hong Kong 11 years ago, I felt that it was a very open society," Li, 33-year-old mainlander, told the Nikkei Asian Review. "But now there has been more and more resistance against mainlanders. This is a sign of a society that is going downhill."
