Loss Ficlet: 180 Seconds

missclairebelle:

🔥Welcome to the Summer of Smut! 🔥

This is the first of three ficlets that will be posted as part of the Summer of Smut project that I’m working on with @desperationandgin and @smashing-teacups.  Check out Gin’s blog tomorrow and S-T’s blog on Sunday for their spin on our first theme/item to incorporate (water). I’ve had an absolute blast working on this wee project with you two, and am so grateful for all of the cheering from the sidelines that you’ve done to bring this across the finish line. Special thanks to @kkruml​ for putting up with me and calling me out on my nonsense, and to @ttwaffles for repeatedly sending me an ask with only an avocado emoji until I relented. 

HAPPY READING!

180 Seconds
June 2019

Slow and pulsing, Friday bled into Saturday.

Well into the sixteenth hour I had spent on my feet, I emerged from the sterile, artificial ventilation of the hospital into fresh air. It was just past midnight. My lungs ached drawing in the heavy, wet greenness of the outdoors. It had been pissing rain (Jamie’s term) for more than seventeen days, and Edinburgh felt lush. Inhaling, I tipped my face towards the sky, looking for nothing at all and exhaled an entire week’s worth of worry (the confounding cases, odd complications, departmental in-fighting, and a dodgy tuna fish sandwich procured by Geillis that made me green in the gills shortly before five).

“Ye look like ye could scream.”

My head snapped to the right, and my face broke.

Jamie.

In film noir, the disembodied voice would have belonged to a trench coat-clad man in a pork pie hat, the deepest of shadows and grey filmy cigarette smoke obscuring the rest of his form.

Reality was better.

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.

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.
