Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

September 28th

theyre literally kidnapping people and telling the protesters theyll be released on condition, then breaking that condition. This shouldnt be allowed to happen

jean-grey-o-lantern:

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Pray for Hong Kong! (and signal boost the hell out of this)

Police in Hong Kong are responding to a gathering of unarmed and non-violent pro-democracy protesters (many of which are students) with rubber bullets, multiple rounds of tear gas, baton attacks, and pepper spray

28th September 7.09pm HKT: Chu Kai-lun, 31, claimed he was tricked by police. “A senior inspector told us to sit down, saying they won’t do anything,” he said, adding moments later police pulled on their gas masks and launched a volley of gas.

This is a day after they pepper-sprayed an elderly man in the face at point-blank range

The two photos below shows activists using umbrellas to avoid the effects of tear gas and pepper spray.

Long story short. On 22nd September 2014 student groups launched a week-long boycott of classes in protest. Thousands of student-led pro-democratic protesters went on a strike, calling for democratic reforms. Things escalated out of hand yesterday (28th September) with the police force using more dangerous and violent methods to contain the protesters when Occupy Central joined the event.

How can you help?

  • If you’re a British citizen, you can sign this petition to raise the awareness of the British Government and Members of the Parliament.
  • Pray for the safety of those who are still out in the streets fighting for Hong Kong’s future and those who have been arrested and are still not let out.
  • Signal boost the hell out of this post! We need as much attention we can get from everyone! This isn’t just our fight but also the whole world’s! These people are all fighting for a good cause, but if we lose, if the Chinese government takes over Hong Kong, it won’t be just affecting those who live there but all countries around the world that are related to Hong Kong in one way or another (whether business or international relations).

Please don’t just ignore this! We need your help!

It is difficult for me to put into words, but simply put, University students started a class boycott movement demanding democracy and universal suffrage from the Hong Kong and Chinese…

church was actually really great today. Near the end everyone was singing and the music was so loud and everyone just seemed so happy. I’m so glad I went today. That was the happiest ive been all month.
