Our concern is that Beijing may enter Hong Kong and the peaceful (somewhat peaceful) protests may be put down with force.
What will it take for Beijing to lose patience with the ever-more-violent protesters in Hong Kong. Of course, many are peace loving protesters who are exercising their right to assemble. However, a small crowd of them are now fighting with police and even throwing metal rods and have objects. The Hong Kong police just banned Mass Weekend Protest March, according to an organizer. One Hong Kong newspaper cited safety concerns and the Civial Human Rights Front are saying their protest might be forced to cancel.
