China Goes Back On Its Promise to Hong Kong.

In case you haven’t heard yet, China has gone back on its promise to Hong Kong that it will allow open nominations for the 2017 elections. (Read more)

GUYS. I’m from Hong Kong, please hear me out. This is really important because if we keep pushing this, nothing will get resolved in the way it should be. The truth is that, despite the amount of people taking part in Occupy Central, this is not even close to half of Hong Kong’s population, and the movement is only what a small portion of Hong Kong citizens believe in. Moreover, the scarier part of it is that this method of protesting will most likely not, in any way, have a good impact on the government.

The main motive of many Hong Kong protesters right now is centered around the wealth gap and the worsening economy, and this, along with social media (which blew things up way out of proportion), ultimately affects the students’ political perspective and leads them to protest in masses. This is essentially why so many people are gathered around the busiest places of Hong Kong and threatening to boycott.. education, basically. On the other hand, there are, of course, many better ways to try to convince the government to rethink its system, but this takes a lot of work and cannot be achieved simply by protesting. In other words, it is not exactly reasonable to demand a good economy and, basically, a good lifestyle and hope that will change over one night.

Politically speaking, there is actually no evidence that China goes back on its promise to Hong Kong, so the title of this post is extremely misleading. Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of China, and thus after the handover to China (Hong Kong was once a British colony), the One Country, Two Systems principle stated that the government system was not to be changed within 50 years. Most importantly, and I quote directly from article 45 of the Hong Kong Basic Law, “The ultimate aim is the selection of the Chief Executive by universal suffrage upon nomination by a broadly representative nominating committee in accordance with democratic procedures.” In other words, the Hong Kong Chief Executive was not and is not elected by everyone, but a selected group of people chosen from each profession. Due to the One Country, Two Systems principle, techincally, this should not change within the 50 years since the handover.

Additionally, regarding the chief executive, whom everyone is so frustrated about at the moment, I have something really important to say. Many Hong Kong citizens overestimate the chief executive’s power and believe that once the chief executive steps down, all their problems will be solved — the leader of the Occupy Central movement actually said that, I heard it when I was watching the news today. The truth is that not only is the chief executive unable to change Hong Kong’s economy, he is also unable to change the law. Needless to say that it is barely possible for him to convince China to have a democratic system. I mean, it’s pretty much like trying to convince the Chinese government to suddenly switch to a democratic system. How hard can that possibly be? Ha-ha. 

Yes, the chief executive has his faults. His management of the situation yesterday was not a good example of leadership. He is not, in fact, the best leader, and he is not able to make the brightest decisions. But all of this has nothing to do with the protests because even if he was the best leader in the world, he would not have been able to do all the things the protestors were demaning for. And that, alone, is a clear evidence of how little the protesters had thought about what they were doing prior to Occupy Central.

Let’s not even go into the potential dangers that may arise if Hong Kong protestors keep testing the limits of the government. 

This source from CNN also explains my point of view quite clearly.

Please help spread the word about this, and I hope social media does not fuel the fire that is already out of control.

Ok guys, Im really sorry if I mislead anyone.

This is the more politically correct version of the story.

PLEASE LISTEN 

Peaceful student protesters in Hong Kong are being tear gassed and pepper sprayed. They are protesting pro-democracy rights and simply want they’re voices to be heard. 

You can read all about the situation here 

Too many times peaceful protesters have been victims of police brutality in an attempt to silence them. This needs to stop before some even more serious damage can be done and by that I mean the loss of lives.

Hong Kong- Occupy Central

poetrystolemyheart:

Hong Kong is in chaos now, I am deeply shocked by how the Hong Kong Police and the Hong Kong Government treat the protesters. Please help us to spread this out and help us fight for democracy.

The protestors are trying to protest in a peaceful way, but all of a sudden there are TEAR GAS and VIOLENCE,  we did not do anything wrong. Hong Kong is dying, but we don’t want to see it die, we must do something.They can’t kill us all.

A photo essay.

One of the most peaceful public gatherings I have been to. Not one person pushed the barricade and yet we were gassed multiple times. There were at least 20 shots on our side within 2 hours.

And what did the people do to deserve this? They p
handed out supplies of water, clear wrap and masks to protect ourselves from the tear gas. Young men helped older ladies climb over the tall barriers.

Hong Kong people love being complacent and timid. Why have we stood out like this? No amount of tear gas can silence us.

Stay safe. Fight on.

FUCK THEY STARTED FIRING

Hong Kong police repeatedly used tear gas on non-aggressive protesters.

China Goes Back On Its “Promise” to Hong Kong.

kaimu-kaimu:

In case you haven’t heard yet, China has gone back on its “promise” to Hong Kong that it will allow open nominations for the 2017 elections.

In August 2014 China’s top legislative committee ruled that voters will only have a choice from a list of two or three candidates selected by a nominating committee. Since the nominating committee is very much pro-Beijing, it is likely that any candidates who oppose China and want change for Hong Kong will not be selected. If this continues, there will be no change for Hong Kong unless it’s ‘approved’ by the big guns in China.

Although Hong Kong technically ‘belongs’ to China, It has it’s own legal system and rights but now China has basically said “Fuck it, HK, I don’t care what we promised, we’re just gonna control your government even more just because we fucking want to”

Controlled democracy is not a democracy at all.

Right Now, Pro-Democracy activists in Hong Kong, the largest group being “Occupy Central” are holding rallies in protest along side student campaigners who held a 5 day boycott of classes. Hundreds of students rushed Hong Kong government headquarters Sept. 26, resulting in clashes with riot police. At least 28 people were injured, including police. More than 60 people were arrested including a prominent student activist and a local politician. The students chanted the slogan: “No fear for civil disobedience” as they were led away by police. It is alleged that pepper spray and tear gas has been used against protesters without mercy. I know that my cousins are protesting against this right now and I hope for them to keep safe.

Many people fear that the Tienanmen Square Massacre incident is happening again in Hong Kong.

I know that HK is only small but that doesn’t mean we should be ignored.

I’m not sure how much of an impact this petition will have but its the best thing the west can do right now, so please sign it in the hope that we can make China honour it’s promise to Hong Kong.

Is this the Hong Kong that we know?

Is this what should happen in Hong Kong?

Is this your impression of Hong Kong?

Please, spread it around the world now and let more people know about the issue, as this should not have been happened in a city like Hong Kong.

The current situation in Hong Kong only serves as a reminder that there is nothing more dangerous than being right when your government is wrong.
