I know I don’t usually post about politics or anything so ignore this if you don’t care:
This week in Hong Kong the citizens have continued to fight for their freedoms and rights to retain their democratic lifestyles. However, the Government and the police have seemed to turn their backs on these people. Corruption in the the government in place by Beijing has neglected their citizens and Hong Kong is being turned into a war zone. The “White Shirts” are a Mafia affiliated gang which is Pro-Beijing and they have attacked innocent people in the city of Yuen Long, across the border to China, south of Shenzhen. These Aggressive men have attacked many people leaving the mass transit stations and walking the streets bashing in windows and windshields of cars and assaulting pedestrians with canes, Umbrellas, Police Batons and other blunt objects. Those traveling on the mass transit are being charged at by the white shirts who wait at the station to beat on innocent men women and children, seemingly not caring who’s in their way. One woman who was pregnant was attacked in the metro and she was almost killed. Sadly her child was unable to survive and her story has gone viral over the last few days. Many more have been viciously attacked. Hong Kong Citizens suspect that these men are being sent there by the Chinese government to create instill and chaos.
Meanwhile, in Sheung Wan, south of Tsim Sha Tsui, Police continue to batter the crowd of unbroken protesters, spraying tear gas, beating with batons and shooting with rubber bullets. There have been several cases of these rubber bullets being fired by police without any warning and some have been sent to hospitals to receive treatments to their faces from injuries.
The Hong Kong people do not deserve this. It hurts me to see that a city that I love is being torn apart by a corrupt government which cares not for its people. It seems that the political landscape for Hong Kong has turned too volatile for an easy recovery and the conflict is far from over.
