Hong Kong riot cops forced to withdraw after democracy protesters copy ‘Don’t shoot’ gesture used by US demonstrators after police shot unarmed black teenager.

Tens of thousands of people, mainly students, have brought central Hong Kong to a standstill, blocking roads and forcing the closure of banks and schools, in a major pushback against Beijing’s decision to limit democratic reforms (bottom). They have responded to the government’s use of tear gas (top right) by using the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ gesture (top left), first employed by demonstrators in Ferguson, Missouri, last month as they marched over the police shooting of unarmed black teenager Mike Brown. There, the gesture became a symbol of the fight against racism and police violence in America. Source.

Hong Kong protesters could change Beijing’s thinking 

Let’s hope so.

The protests are making me cry. I feel so connected with the Hong Kong movement. These people are my brothers and sisters. There must be some hope out there.

My heart goes out to the protesters in Hong Kong. 

gwydionmisha:

I am old enough to remember Tianamen Square and my worry on behalf these brave protesters is more than I can bear.  As of this writing it’s mostly been tear gas and the like, but I see the drone footage and I think of tanks and air strikes and the fragility of humans armed only with umbrellas and their convictions.  I want them to win so badly; I want them to survive.  I have no faith that that will happen.  I know my wishing them well does nothing and that all I can do is be a witness.

donutchildren:

The people of Hong Kong are fighting in the streets for their democracy in the face of the might of China. I hope that the world will stand behind them and that they will inspire us all to see the value of democracy and participating in our society. Totalitarianism must be kept back in the shapes of communism, fascism, plutocracy, false representation, or any other form it may take. If you stand for democracy and freedom then today you stand with hong kong. I only wish I could be with them today.

"The fundamental thing for democracy is participation and responsibility, which they are showing. How can people say that Hong Kong is not ready? How you deny democracy to people like this?"

i’m so scared for the pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong.

honestly. i’m so worried for them. how can this end well? how can this possibly end well? the Chinese government is utterly brutal.

and the fact that pro-Beijing people exist - i mean, the kind of propaganda they’ve had to have consumed to actually want to fight against their own freedom… it is really disturbing.

i’m very worried. i hardly want to see new news about the protests because i’m worried any moment now there’s going to be death and maiming and various forms of agony.

this is really scary and i have so little hope. it’s not just history being made right now - the future is being made.

all i feel is worry and fear. but they must continue to fight. they must.
