By mid-2016, China began experiencing another turbulent event: the 2016 Hong Kong uprising which were originally similar to the Umbrella Revolution two years prior. Hong Kongers took to the streets and in a publicized act, stormed a police station and captured riot gear, tear gas, and some firearms. There were also reports of policemen defecting to the protestors. The Provisional Government of Hong Kong was formed, thus leading to the deployment of PLA forces via transport helicopters and a naval blockade. It was reported that the ROC sent special forces to aid the Provisional Government, yet Taiwan denies this. At the same time, tensions in Tibet and Xinjiang began to flare up. The PLA is currently deploying troops to these areas.
