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. Why did the massive crowd come out for the protest? It has been a long time such a massive crowd to join the protest. After the Umbrella Movement, numerous of pro democracy parties couldn’t draw a common goal of the future democratic movement of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is no longer the place you once knew. From the hint of this news, you know that the legal system might not be totally independent, which actually also need to consult the government, oh actually it might be the PRC. Yes yes, Hong Kong is somehow no longer a place which everybody is equal in front of the law. 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. Yes, yes and yes, it ...
