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.

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

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

We need your help.

I guess I will be taken to prison by Chinese government one day, because of this art I drew, or the things I said.

I am from Hong Kong. As you may not know, this is a special administration region of China. We (still) have our own legal system, and freedom of speech, that’s why I can access to everywhere in the internet without censorship (I get ask a lot).

Recently, over a million of people are protesting against the Extradition Law. It was an extremely-almost-impossible fight and many students are injured horribly by the police force. I WAS THERE.

If the extradition law is passed, which means that China can “took” anyone from Hong Kong back to China as “prisoners”. Oh you don’t wanna know what China will do to those innocent people …

The government is forcing the law on us. We couldn’t do this on our own. We need more attention from other countries. Please spread this message out.

15/6 UPDATE: One of our man just jump off from the roof – he suicided because of THIS. 

His last words were “Full withdrawal of Extradition Bill. We are not rioters. Release injured students. Step down Carrie Lam. Help Hong Kong. No Extradition To China. Make Love No Shot.” 

We are all heartbroken. You will be missed. R.I.P.

I’m from Hong Kong now working in China.
Hong Kong is considered the world’s freest economy for more than two decades, which means we have hundred of thousands of expats and
entrepreneurs

from all over the world.

The Hong Kong Stock Exchange has been among the top global Initial Public Offerings raising markets in the past decade, which means we have one of the biggest pools of foreign investments and money. 
Hong Kong hosts nearly 90 international media organisations including major broadcasters, newspapers and news agencies.

Hong Kong belongs to Hong Kong people, but Hong Kong also belongs to the international society. 
 Over 70 of the world’s 100 top banks operate in Hong Kong.

At the moment you are reading this, I am 100% sure there are your fellow people living and working in Hong Kong, I am 100% sure parts of your investment or fund can be traced back to Hong Kong market. We are all connected.

The proposed extradition law not only is going to send Hong Kongers to China, it actually extends to everyone who is physically in Hong Kong, even you are just transiting to somewhere else, if China considers you have committed a crime. It is not reaching and accusative if you make sense of this law now proposed in Hong Kong in the context of hostage diplomacy (https://thegeopolitics.com/chinas-hostage-diplomacy/).  While one may pend for the leniency of the government if such law is passed and executed, no one should live in fear.

While the western countries have been doing business with China feeding and growing the monster of the Communist
authoritarian regime, millions of Hong Kongers are courageous and conscientious to stand up to say no to this extradition law. One and two millions of us took the streets on 9 and 16 June respectively.
Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.

Between two massive rallies, a peaceful demonstration on 12 June was violently suppressed by the Hong Kong Police Force. Unarmed protesters and journalists were being assaulted by unjustified and excessive use of force. Protesters running for life were cornered with teargas, being shot in the heads with rubber bullets and beanbags. Despite of the casuality of these civilians, Police is going to charge some of them of inciting riots.

China and Hong Kong governments are now laying low to wait for G20 to pass, where the world leaders will come together to discuss economic and political matters.  Please spread this news and don’t let our cry be unheard.
