Shit happened to Ferguson is happening in Hong Kong right now!

Students were just protesting peacefully for genuine democracy around Admiralty and Central, yet the police forced used pepper spray, tear gas and violence to disperse the crowd….

The White House “we the people” site is an international site, so signing it can raise awareness.
I made this post a few days ago. The White House already said they are aware of the umbrella revolution and support democracy. To be frank, you should probably do other things like
1. understand what’s going on in Hong Kong
2. Ask your friends or Tumblr artist to raise awareness by talking and drawing related things
3. Join overseas events.

Hong Kong, not like China, is a harmonic place and usually these kind of things won’t happen. Hong Kong and China are two different places. Please do your research.

The protest in Hong Kong is continuing.

People are starting to call it the umbrella revolution.

Because of the umbrellas being used to deflect pepper spray and tear gas.

Because the government is pepper-spraying and tear-gassing students who are peacefully protesting..

But then, I guess this is nothing new for China, right?

Hong Kong people are standing tall and strong.

Spread the word. REBLOG. LET THE WORLD KNOW.

The Umbrella Revolution….

HONG KONG (September 30, 2014) —  In one of the biggest political challenges for The People’s Republic of China (aka Communist China) since the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, pro-democracy protesters took to the streets Tuesday in a growing confrontation with China over the financial hub’s future as either an enclave of freedom or another communist-controlled city.

Some protesters are already labeling the movement The Umbrella Revolution for the umbrellas many are holding to deflect pepper spray and tear gas that was lobbed by police on Sunday night.That fueled even more protesters to come out in force Monday. Tens of thousands of young demonstrators blocked what are normally some of Hong Kong’s busiest streets.

China, which has ruled Hong Kong since 1997 as “one country, two systems,” has denounced the week-long protest and, in typical communist behavior, blocked information about it from reaching the mainland of China.

Ever wonder how and why America fought for freedom in the late 18th century during the American Revolution? Look to Hong Kong today, and the Umbrella Revolution…..

                                           *          *          *          *

I've visited Hong Kong more often than any other city in the world, including cities within my own country, the United States of America….at least two dozen visits throughout my lifetime….as a child….as a United States Naval Officer….as a private world traveler in my retirement.

There are few places as fascinating, dynamic, industrious or exciting as Hong Kong!

I watched with heartbreaking sadness as Hong Kong left the British Commonwealth in 1997 and passed to the jurisdiction of Communist China.

I now watch with a held-breath, trepidation, and the greatest of joy and hope as the young people of Hong Kong fight for their freedom from the bondages of Communist China.

I sincerely wish the free people of Hong Kong all the very best of luck in their pursuits!

我衷心祝愿香港所有的好运的自由人在自己的追求! [Chinese (Simplified) translation]

And a final note to the “rulers” in Beijing: you might do best to let Hong Kong go their own way if you value your own economy and future!
