In other words, according to Beijing's way.
Chinese state media didn't report on the massive march at all but instead that 500,000 people took part in 150 events marking the 17th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China.
Interesting that one of them was the People's Liberation Army having an open house so that ordinary citizens could take a look at the barracks, meet soldiers and get to see some military hardware.
Even more intriguing is that many people are keen to check out the PLA. Or are they gathering intel for us?
In any event, we are waiting to hear what the Leung administration and Beijing have to say about the march, or any oblique reference to it.
That response will determine whether Occupy Central will happen or not. And with the first indication from Zhang, it gives a hint of things to come.
