Aug 2017 Protest in HK - Yellow Umbrella

PROTEST in a hot summer for our RIGHTS

Last Sunday, despite the burning temperature, thousands of citizens came out and protest for our legal system and the authentic universal suffrage, urging to release the student activists, as well as a lot of other reasons.

Sentencing the activists to prison is a “good” way for youngsters to learn a lesson – to learn that you are born to live under the shadows of the old and greedy and well-established corporation, which will never ever accept any innovation or creative destruction.
