cisphobicmac: thecringeandwincefactory: i-hate-chick-fil-a: This guide will be useful to Americans when we need to protest This is great stuff for situations where you’re dealing primarily with cops - just please keep in mind that one size does not necessarily fit all situations. We’ve found locally, for instance, that nazis here like to use knives. A lot of knife injuries come from attempting to fend off an attack, and thus result in slashing injuries to the arms. Fortunately there are very light, flexible, and relatively inexpensive products originally intended for butchers to use that are great for this and will cover your whole arm or forearm. Always research this stuff ahead of time and look at what other people in similar situations are doing and share the information you find. And remember that you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to protect yourself. And always mask up. This persons comment wasn’t rebloggable but I felt was an important addition. : Hong Kong Protest Gear Summer 2019 Yellow construction helmet Goggles For flying debris Protects against rubber bullets, tear gas canisters, flying bricks Gas Mask Protecting against tear gas, which Hong Kong police use liberally Broad face cover To counter facial-recognition technology Black t-shirt Uniform adopted by Hong Kong protestors in contrast to white Ts, worn by Beijing supporters Backpack Typically holds snacks, water, change of clothes. tools and sometimes laser pens Lycra skin covers To protect against tear gas effects to shine in officers eyes.

We really need senators to know this so Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act can still be passed. I am now kneeling on the ground and begging you to share this out to your representatives (most importantly Ted Cruz) to help save Hong Kong.: To those who think Hong Kongers have won in this movement. This is a TRAP. We have got nothing we asked for. In this afternoon, our chief executive Carrie Lam announced that she would propose the withdrawal of the bill in the legislative council. But the truth is that the legislative council is currently dominated by pro-Beijing camp. The motion will probably be voted down in October. What's more -Over 1000 protesters were arrested -3 protesters were permanently blinded by rubber bullets -8 protesters sacrificed his/her life -Police did not arrive at the scene until 39 minutes later than when the mob attack on 21st July happened -Police brutality was not properly investigated -Protesters were sexually asulted by police officers -And the countless sleepless nights that you brought to us All these things cannot be ignored by a simple "withdrawal" of the bill The fact is, we got nothing until now. Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act must be passed at all Costs A fellow Hong Konger Please share this out in social media and to your representatives, help save Hong Kong We really need senators to know this so Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act can still be passed.

The heartfelt words from a 15 years old front-line protester in Hong Kong. #teenagersareawesome: THE HEARTFELT WORDS FROM A 15 Y/0 FRONTLINE PROTESTOR 15 歲前線的心聲 「我出事,好過你哋出事! 」 "IWOULD RATHER GET HURT MYSELF THAN FOR YOU GUYS TO GET HURT" 1.Are people at the frontline anxiously searching for "undercover cops"? No, it's still the same (as before protestors found out police are going undercover). People at the frontline knows right from wrong, and usually we would discuss in groups of about 20-30 regarding our actions, which would then be decided through voting. I don't think we would be swayed by the "undercover cops" 7. Do you think the continual escalation at the protest frontline is effective in pressuring the government? Do you think it is useful? If the government continues to ignore our demands, then naturally our level of resistance would escalate, which would definitely cause pressure to the government I'm not sure this will bring actual results, but I'm just doing as much as I can. 8. Are you afraid of getting shot by the police? No, not all all. "If we burn, you burn with us. Plus I would rather get shot myself instead of the girls, 2. How does it feel getting hit by tear gas and rubber bullets? Getting hit by tear gas hurts a lot. It feels like getting burnt by fire, and my urine also turned red (after I got hit because girls' facial appearance is very important. by tear gas) when I pee, though I'm not sure if it's related Would rather get hurt myself than seeing other Getting hit by rubber bullets also hurts a lot, with the swelling and bruising taking an entire week to fade away. people getting hurt. 9. Do you usually go protesting by yourself? No, I normally go out with my friends. But once the police takes action, we often get separated because We all need to move quickly and can't focus too much on staying together. After that I would just team up with other protestors; And actually I feel like people with gears (helmet, respirators, black t-shirts) are rarely "undercover cops" 3. Did your parents get mad at you, or stops you from going out? don't think my dad knows about it, but my mum is really open-minded. She doesn't really comment much on it, though she did laugh at where Í got shot (at the butt). 4. How do you view the rumour, that protestors are paid to join demonstrations? Getting shot in the eye and turning blind is a life-long effect. Just think about it, no amount of money can motivate anyone to 10. What are you feeling now? Very helpless, I don't see the reason why the government isn't responding to us. I feel useless, not being able to achieve anything, and it also feels hopeless despite our efforts hat 5. What makes you willing to risk your future in order to achieve the unimaginable? Liberate Hong Kong, Revolution of our Times. 11. What do you want to do the most right now? I want to grow up quickly, so that I can try drinking and other things that I have not done before. 1 also want to have a girlfriend! 6. Are you going to be discouraged if not as much people attend today's rally (18th Aug 2019)? A little, but I do understand that people geť tired; The most important thing is that we all do our very best. I will carry on for them. A frontline protestor- 15 y/o boy The heartfelt words from a 15 years old front-line protester in Hong Kong. #teenagersareawesome

seagog: i’m going to take a moment to deviate from my usual posts, so bear with me: the actress starring in the 2020 Mulan remake, Liu Yifei, has just voiced her support for the Hong Kong police. these are the police who have been brutalizing protestors for several months now with batons, tear gas, and rubber bullets, and recently blinded a young medic in one eye. Liu has a social media platform of 65 million followers, and has been in the national spotlight since her casting - her words have influence and impact. her conscious decision to stand by the HK police sends a clear message: that violence against civilians is acceptable as a means of control, intimidation, and suppression. this breaks my heart. as a person of Chinese descent, Mulan’s character was a source of inspiration and empowerment throughout my childhood, and I’m sure I wasn’t alone in my excitement to see the remake, but I’m even more saddened and disgusted by Liu Yifei’s support of the police. note that Liu is a naturalized American citizen, and reaps the benefits of freedom and democracy in the US while supporting those who are fighting to silence it in China. if Mulan were real and here now, she would be out on the streets of Hong Kong, fighting for the fundamental rights of 7 million Hong Kong citizens. please, please, please consider boycotting this movie. skip it, pirate it, do what you need to do, but show that you won’t stand for police brutality. : JUPPORT HK PROTESTORS 'BOYCOTT MULAN seagog: i’m going to take a moment to deviate from my usual posts, so bear with me: the actress starring in the 2020 Mulan remake, Liu Yifei, has just voiced her support for the Hong Kong police. these are the police who have been brutalizing protestors for several months now with batons, tear gas, and rubber bullets, and recently blinded a young medic in one eye.
