Another day begins in #Hongkong
, another day of resisting against the slow erosion of fundamentals freedoms and justice.
In the face of tyranny and power, the people of Hong Kong do not cower.
The media is full of images of police using water cannons and tear gas and rubber bullets against protesting civilians. There is a harrowing video of a young protester being surrounded and mercilessly beaten by armoured police. The People's Liberation Army is reported by Chinese media to be mobilised and standing by. In some alternative universe, the Chinese government spokesperson just yesterday praised the success of the One Country, Two System model.
Almighty China and #xijinping #習大大
must be so petrified of "picnicking" Hongkongers and deviant open umbrellas on the streets. 30 years after Tiananmen, the image of demonstrators and banners calling for democracy must be send shivers down the backs of the Chinese Communist Party.

I woke up feeling extremely distressed from the situation here in Hong Kong, my hometown and due to my health conditions I’m not able to stand out there to support my fellow peers. Hence I would like to reach out to the international community via my social media.
Without going into politics, I ask that everyone to send prayers, love and light to Hong Kong my hometown. Last Sunday, 1.03 million Hong Kongers took to the streets to call for the safeguard of fundamental human rights. Today, the demonstrations are still on - showing the determination of Hong Kongers on our respect for fundamental human rights, rule of law and justice.
Let’s all pray and send light for Hong Kong -
Let it be safe,
Let it be peaceful,
Let fundamental human rights, rule of law and justice to prevail,
Let those who have the power to change this to find in their hearts and conscience and to make the right choice for the common good of Hong Kong against tyranny.
