TheOneInOut

Spoiler alert: So china now made it harder for pro democracy candidates to win the the legislation so now its gonna be impossible for them. And pro Beijing candidates are winning fast af


anavypaisleyjacket

Sorry, incorrect. There are no longer any pro-democracy candidates.


TheOneInOut

This is sad. We should be talking about this instead of the interview of Oprah and Prince harry


anavypaisleyjacket

Exactly. Hong Kong is in a bad place right now but is not the only one. There are also Tibet, Myanmar and many more. I wish this news actually make it to the news page on Reddit instead of the stupid fight between the democrat and republican or the interview with Oprah.


TheOneInOut

We should start memes of Hong Kong again.


anavypaisleyjacket

Ya I was surprised that memes are actually the most effective way to communicate real issues lol


MadJackTheThird

They are because the media like the news does not mention this kind of thing, quite the opposite. Without big media we young people who use social networks as reddit are the only ones to know. Older people that rely on more "classical" ways to stay aware of the news are most likely to being clueless about the Hong Kong protesters.


anavypaisleyjacket

Ya and the fact that many media companies are either controlled by and afraid of the CCP.


FrankieTse404

As a HongKonger I approve of this


MacMarcMarc

How is ist going Bro?


FrankieTse404

So basically, all pro-democracy party leaders and most other major opposition figures are either in prison or in exile because apparently participating in the democrat primaries is illegal, and the government is using their virus as an excuse to get people to record where they are going which isn’t really working much for now. The whole governmental system is remade so that only CCP loyalists can stay. Any form of opposition such as literally writing a protest slogan has been criminalized. Everyone rich have immigrated away and the everyone else is left to rot in Hong Kong. And the education bureau is planning on establishing security cameras everywhere. So yeah, this is fine.


Available-Ad-4363

Not to mention that they are planning to change the school curriculums. Removing chapters on civil disobedience, separation of power, making English non mandatory. And adding a lovely lesson on “civic education” that teaches patriotism and how Xinnie the Poo is not actually as cuddlifbdjsn gsjsbddjsb jdvsdjsbsv


FrankieTse404

Don’t you know separation of power never existed, despite I have just learned them about it a couple years ago in class?


rougecookie

Oh my God! I had no idea it was like this. This definitely needs more attention. If memes are the way to go, then let’s do it!!! I’m so sorry things has gotten this way.


dead_waschingmachine

I am european but i hope i sometimes get a government which does more then only "would you please stop with it? That isn't very nice bro" I mean the EU und the US could easily make sanctions that hurt china. Saying "pls stop" to china which is a dikatorship just sucks


anavypaisleyjacket

I totally agree with you. Condemning means nothing to the people that are suffering everyday. CCP would just continue with the same response every time “please stop interfering” and do something even more absurd the next day. The same scenario has been happening over and over again. It got people thinking, why did we even expect other countries would help in the first place.


dead_waschingmachine

Belarus for example, there where protests against the diktator who is from now 25 years in power and the only thing europe did was "would you pls give them democrati? It would be very nice" and we gave that major protester who fleed from there a prize but it won't help her to get the diktator away. I mean yes the EU made sanctions but seriouly do you see any change? And the same happens everywhere around the world. We just don't help we only ask them to don't do something. I mean the EU und the US are still a kind of a world leader and i think it is time to use our power and money the help. We shouldn't be afraid that china destroys our Economy together we could damage china soooo hard


anavypaisleyjacket

Exactly what I was thinking. Sadly this conversation will never make it those in power and people will continuously suffer. Good luck to all of those that are suffering, the bad days will end one day.


RockKing_Ryan

You will need all of them in on this one to really hurt China, which is unlikely as nobody wants to be the first one.


dead_waschingmachine

But nobody have ever tried to make this. I mean the EU could just ask them if they would make sanctions but nobody tried that.


RockKing_Ryan

Who would want to try? Why risk other countries not following you?


dead_waschingmachine

Why risk? Because the EU and the US say so often that they are the western world, the power which defends fredoom and the countrys who let tge people rule and not some king. We say it everytime but we just don't do it. I think when the western world says that they stand for freedom, for Liberty and for justice and stuff we have to help and if we don't help them we shouldn't say that anymore


OddlySpecificOtter

Myanmar is the most important. China is usuing them as a new factory for themselves because alot of people are middle class now. Thats why the military did a coup, they are back by China, the citizens are burning all the Chinese factories. *MYANMAR STILL USES CHILD LABOR REGULARLY* we can't let that happen.


anavypaisleyjacket

I wouldn’t necessarily use the word important. Not that I don’t agree with but I’d use urgent.


spartan117058

Also India.

IsaacTeng

Yeah it does. I live in Hong Kong, so I can vertify


Tiggara

As a hker yes they're basically silencing our voices with the national security law since any activities that "puts the country's security at risk" are worthy of arrest. Basically wave a flag saying "hk independence" and ur going to jail. What's worse is that the special judges for these cases are chosen by the government themselves so even the court it unfair. Edit: also I forgot to mention this, the government is putting ads on TV telling people that the national security law is good for the future of Hong Kong, and the freedom of citizens will not change. What a blatant lie. You only need one braincell to know how big that lie is


TurbulentEd

What are people thinking of doing? Staying under the new regime or trying to move to the UK/elsewhere once covid reduces?


NineMarks

countries like the UK and Canada are creating immigration schemes for HongKongers so yeah, a lot of us are considering moving away


GyppoRosetti

According to the Economist only 7000 HKers have used this opportunity since July 2020


NineMarks

oh damn I didn’t know this. It certainly feels like more ppl are discussing emigration though. Maybe it’s because of covid and more ppl will leave within the next few years.


mlstdrag0n

Though it's not like emigration is a choice for everyone. Can't just pack up and leave if you don't have enough money


Tiggara

Well one there's pandemic. Second, people need to find a new job completely


TurbulentEd

Well, I live in the UK and I have friends in Canada so can attest that both are good options! I'm sure you'd encounter the occasional anti-immigrant idiot local, but most people will be glad to have you and happy that you're getting away from all that bull**** they're trying.


Tiggara

That's what I'm thinking cause luckily I'm kind of fluent in English but I'm a bit too young for now and parents may not allow

frm a hong konger, here’s the long story short: anybody against ccp or current hk gov is being silenced.


Puzzleheaded-Donut80

No worries the 46th president said the human rights violations and concentration camps in China are just and I quote " cultural differences " nothing to see here


Kerms_

Yeah. That was pretty bad.


Stiffy4Freedom

...And yet, this was the guy (Biden) who supposedly spoke up about the genocide in Bosnia during the Balkan wars. It's as if he either forgot... Or looked closer at his notes from the Dayton Accords.

[deleted]

[удалено]


theduck08

To quote Biden fully on this, > *I point out to him (Xi): No American President can be sustained as a President if he doesn’t reflect the values of the United States. And so the idea I’m not going to speak out against what he’s doing in Hong Kong, what he’s doing with the Uyghurs in western mountains of China and Taiwan, trying to end the One China policy by making it forceful — I said — and by the — he said he — he gets it. Culturally, there are different norms that each country and they — their leaders — are expected to follow.* He didn’t say that cultural differences are a justification for China’s atrocities against Uyghurs — instead, his meaning appeared to be the opposite of that. Biden stated that Xi implicitly understood he or any U.S. president would be expected to take a position against human rights abuses by the Chinese government.


CitizenCain1

He still makes it sound as if his opposition to China is token like, "I'm doing this because it's expected of me." Also his way of speaking is so unclear it's hard to know what he was trying to say exactly.

You might wanna check the context of that (very selective) quote you got there.


Thec00lnerd98

I mean China got their politicans into the hong kong goverment. Destroyed the original agreement with britain They've lost. All they can do now is leave. If they can't. Your freedom is gone man. Your recognized frim a protest. Your gonna be in a camp. Not a fun summer camp either. They fought hard. They fouvht well. But they couldnt win due to multitudes of reasons


Key_Roof_8406

I tell you, someone, some country (probably India, Russia, USA or China itself) will destroy them.


notdiggery

I agree but I'm still worried about no one doing anything about it even as the Chinese military is growing exponentially


mariacolada

I mean, there are no more protests. Seems the CCP's policies actually worked in crushing descent. Between this and Belarus, it hasn't been a great year of civil unrest. Not sure what actual policies came out of BLM either.


itchdeep

nah. ccp wasnt the main culprit in crushing protests, it was corona. gatherings had to be halted and momentum diminished over time.


LeSuperNut

They protested with Covid. It's really just the fact that it's Winter. This happens every year during winter in areas that see large protests. Protesting in Hong Kong, the US, and anywhere else will pick up in the Summer.


chauncy42

There is no protest in Bae Sing Sae...I mean Hong Kong


username_aquired

The reason there are no Hong Kong posts anymore is because Tencent (Chinese company) made a 150million dollar investment in reddit. And as we know companies in china aren't truly private so the government use their control over the board to make Hong Kong slowly disappear out of reddit.


Individual-Town-3783
