Happening right now in Hong Kong - the police is firing rubber bullets and using batons, pepper spray, tear gas and water cannons on peaceful protesters who took the streets to protest against the passing of a controversial law which would allow China to extradite people.

Protesters set up camps, gave out snacks and surgical masks before all of this started. Tanks are apparenrly out in the streets as well and people are being hurt as I write this, but they are not backing down.

Most of the protesters are young people, university students, even high schoolers.

Date: New York Times, 12 June 2019

I’m from Hong Kong. On 12 June, peaceful and unarmed protesters were provoked and then assaulted by Hong Kong Police Force violently with out of proportion deployment of tear gas. Protesters were being shot in the head with rubber bullets and beanbags. While protesters were provoked by the police to throw water bottles, umbrellas and bricks, no burning and robbery or riot activities were commited by these protesters. HKPF sent their full-geared riot police, not to clear the protest and restore order, but to take this opportunity to assault these protesters and even journalists.  Unarmed protesters were scared and ran for their life.  They only had umbrella and medical face masks to protect themselves. They were taking a break, sitting or already lying on the ground. They can no longer defend themselves nor had they charged at police at all. They were being pepper sprayed and brutally beaten by the riot police. Journalists with equipment screamed their identity and riot police continued to charge or sneak behind them to apply pepper spray.

On 16 June, two millions, lined up for hours for public transport, took the street to say no to extradition law but also to demand the government to retract the “Riot” designation and to condemn police’s excessive force. The leader’s apology is no more than a lip service without even acknowledging the mass turnout on 16 June and their grieve concerns about police’s abuse of authority. We are fighting for Hong Kong and for anyone who still believe in justice.

This doesn’t fit this blog but THIS IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW PLEASE READ IT ALL

I’m from Hong Kong. Today is 18 June and Hong Kongers are still fighting  against the Hong Kong Government about the abuse of excessive force and demanding the retraction of the “Riot” designation.

On 15 June, the Chief Executive (the Governor) of Hong Kong held a press conference to address the controversy, not only she didn’t look into the outrage about police’s blatant abuse of authority nor have any plan to set up an independent committee to investigate, she stated very clearly that she supported the police and considered what the police did was justified.

An unknown protester fell to his death after the press conference, demanding justice. (https://www.ettoday.net/news/20190616/1468311.htm)

Over the past few days, the Hong Kong Government has not expressed any regrets and sorrow towards his death. The Hong Kong Government insisted that they did nothing wrong but the people didn’t understand the extradition law. The Hong Kong Government continued to insult the people’s intelligence and disrespect the people’s wish.

On 16 June, two millions out of some seven millions of Hong Kong people gathered again to rally against the Government. When we occupied all roads, ten of thousands of protesters split apart to let ambulance and public buses passing like crossing of the Red Sea.

Hong Kong protesters are environmental conscious. We always clean up our streets and recycle after demonstrations and rally.  Teenagers picked up empty bottles after things quieted down at night. We set up recycle stations. The streets after a million-strong rally were almost trash-free. Because we love our city.

Rewinding to 12 June, peaceful protesters on pedestrian areas were being thrown tear gas for no obvious reasons.  Protesters were being cornered to escape for life and almost resulted in a stampede.
