There is a #misunderstanding
from the international world that the #Extradition
Law has already been withdrawn, and that the #government
. We have been receiving congratulations messages from #UnitedStates
. Although heart warming, your “congratulations” on the bull being withdrawn cannot be further away from the #truth
The official statement made by the CE #CarrieLam
, used the words “suspend indefinitely“. By #definition
, to suspend indefinitely is to temporarily pause an action for a endless and or unknown period of time.
The Chinese words used, “暫緩”, merely means a TEMPORARY SLOWDOWN.
As you can see, the #translation
are two ends of the spectrum. The English release of Carrie Lam means to cease the bill, but the original work spoken by her is nothing of the sort.
The government is clearly playing #wordgames
. Trying to hide their intention, hoping it would be lost in translation. Spreading a #different
message to the English-speaking world. So that the rest of the world would falsely believe #HongKong
is now safe from the bill, and would not pay as much #attention
, keeping investor’s #money
here in Hong Kong.
Furthermore, Hong Kong would definitely be one of the burning #questions
waiting for #XiJinping
in the upcoming G20 meeting. By #coolingdown
, and falsely shape the situation that Hong Kong is now safe, Xi can face less diplomatic stress when China and US leader meet in G20.
We’re so touched that you care about HK democratic status. But we still haven’t won. The withdrawal of #Chinaextraditionlaw
is further from success.
the word, and let the whole world know we haven't achieved victory yet. Hong Kong is still under the siege from the extradition #bill
We need #support
and attention from everyone. To prevail against such oppression and tyranny that is the #CommunistParty
Pass this #message
on so that we can have our city with #freedom
