The police was out of control on 7 July evening. They told the protesters to leave but at the same time surrounded them, making it difficult for the people to leave.

They used the baton and shield to beat the people, regardless who they were attacking, whether they are protesters, passerbys or journalists.

Here is a clip of how the police attacked the protesters even there was no resistance.

Photo: HK01, you can see the cops trying to beat the reporters

One journalist was accused of attacking an officer when he was pushed by the police and fell on the ground, luckily other journalists witnessed and shouted at the cops, asking them to arrest the accused journalist immediately if he did attacked. End up the cops back down and told the media to calm down.

Some of the cops even entered a MacDonald to beat and arrest anyone wearing black. There are people asking the restaurant to release their security camera clip to expose this but they received no response.

The situation is horrible, those who supposed to be protecting the citizens are now treating the citizens as their enemy, they do not follow the law (a cop yelled at the protesters, saying ’fight me if you dare’, there were policemen didn’t show their identities when they’re on duty, which is against the law)

There was a time when we were proud to say Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the world, and now the police acting as the tool of the government to suppress unfavorable opinions.

You may see not see us on your local headlines anymore but Hong Kong people are still fighting!! Our people haven’t give up to injustice and brutality under the authoritarian rule that the capitalists in Wall Street are more than happy to do business with. Our people are going strong and standing up tall to what is wrong and cruel. Our people are unafraid of the batons and teargas. We are unafraid, we will not surrender but we don’t want to die quietly without waking up the world of the threat of this expanding authritarian regime.  If our people have to lose our freedom and autonomy eventually, please let our courage and dignity be remembered and World, please continue to fight the unfinished battle.

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.

The police are now stopping ambulances trying to help the injured and are taking people out of the ambulances and arresting them insteading of letting them get the help they need. This could cost people their lives, their vision (they aimed the rubber bullets in the heads of the protesters), etc. It’s like those police officers forgot what their jobs actually are and lost their humanity in the process.

The man covered in blood and lying on the floor in one of the photos above is a journalist and the police shot him in the head! The protesters moved to let the ambulance pass through and directed them to the man and let them pass to the hospital freely, clapping at the ambulance workers all the while. The man has since lost consciousness and his condition is reported as being serious.

Meanwhile, the police had since blocked other ambulance vehicles from passing through and arrested the injured.

A video of the journalist being shot was captured and is currently spreading on social media – in it, you can see that the man was just standing there and didn’t do anything to warrant being shot whatsoever.

approx. 10 riot police beating up lone protester while journalists (in yellow vests) film

earlier (approx 5:30 HKT 12/6/19 (dd/m/yy)) a protester was shot in the face ; not sure if its by rubber bullet or bean bag

Urgent medical supplies the protestors need:

This is today, 6/12/19. Please note that even though it’s posted by “one-time-I-dreamt” this is not a dream. This is actual news that is happening now, and searching Google for it (”china protest where can I help”) finds nothing on the first page about the violence the protesters are suffering, despite being covered in articles about the Hong Kong extradition protest.

Does anyone know where people in other countries can help? Is there an organized medical group working with this?

That’s a sign your government is filtering results. I’m in Canada and soon as I type in China protest all this and more comes up. As yet there is no clear agency organizing rescue and relief so how to help doesn’t bring up much. Generally speaking Red Cross is who usually organizes this kind of thing so contacting them about it is probably your best bet.

Unarmed peaceful protesters were brutally assaulted by police and then charged with incitement of riot. We HKers demand the Hong Kong government to retract the riot categorisation for more than a week. The Government not only didn’t respond to this demand but openly praised the police of diligently carrying out their duties. We will never surrender to violence and injustice. We have faith in humanity and the international society. Please spread the news and let more people know about what’s going on in Hong Kong. It will save us as long as you care. Thank you. Thank you so much.

Can someone add that GIF of them letting the ambulances through?

Hey Hongkonger here. You ask and you shall receive. Here is the ambulance crossing of the Red Sea gif.

Hongkongers are in desperate need of spreading the news to the world when the leaders are gathering at G20. Hongkongers are courageous in fighting against authoritarian rule and police brutality. We know many in different parts of the world suffer and are fighting the same battle. Please don’t give up because look, only a few millions of Hong Kongers stand unafraid against China with the population of 1.4 billions, the second largest economic system in the world. You know why? Because we know you’re there looking out for us, speaking up for us, standing up for us. We never lose faith in humanity and international society. We believe in you. We have successfully crowdfunded for an open-letter advertisement on the following papers:

– U.S.:Washington Post、NYT

– UK:Financial Times

– Germany:Süddeutsche Zeitung

– Japan:讀賣新聞、朝日新聞、The Japan Times

– Korea:朝鮮日報

– Australia:The Australian

– Canada:The Globe and Mail

– Taiwan:蘋果日報

– Belgium:Politico

Please buy a copy in your country and help spread the news. Being informed and connected are empowerment of conscientious citizens across the world.
