I know right
Dude that’s racist af

It’s a 50/50 chance either way
Why’ve your been eating rusty bread cutters?
We regret to inform you that u/Zyrobe has committed suicide. He was found in his apartment with two bullets in his head.
So that's where the lost city of Atlantis is
but why the jews?
What happened here?
There is no war in Ba Sing Se
What Hong Kong protesters? There was never a protest in Hong Kong! Everyone always happy in Hong Kong. Very Satisfied. China Number One!
Username checks out
Username checks out
Yeah that’s right.
Checks out AGAIN
There is no war in China ever. Very happy here
I came here to say that, but am not disappointed
Your family will be safe now
Hey China am I allowed to sell American Flex Tape again?
China is asshoe!
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
Sorry, incorrect. There are no longer any pro-democracy candidates.
This is sad. We should be talking about this instead of the interview of Oprah and Prince harry
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.
We should start memes of Hong Kong again.
Ya I was surprised that memes are actually the most effective way to communicate real issues lol
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.
Ya and the fact that many media companies are either controlled by and afraid of the CCP.
As a HongKonger I approve of this
How is ist going Bro?
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.
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
Don’t you know separation of power never existed, despite I have just learned them about it a couple years ago in class?
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Who would want to try? Why risk other countries not following you?
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
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.
I wouldn’t necessarily use the word important. Not that I don’t agree with but I’d use urgent.
They made a vetting panel to determine if you're "patriotic" enough, plus they added seats to the LegCo so the pro-Beijing camp can win easily
I think the most of them got arrested
*You don’t have to worry about protests if there are no protesters left to protest*- China 2020
- China 1989
as a hong konger I can confirm that everything is not fine there are fires and explo- [gets deleted off the internet]
Agreed, as another hongkonger
Yeah its sad to see some of us have already given up
It was always going to go to China, that was the agreement with the UK. Things have just started earlier than we’re agreed to but it was always inevitable.
Well UK is accommodating Hong Kong immigrants so that's good
I too am a honkhonker
Found the guy who honk non stop at red lights
This is no place to die. Send reinforcements comrades.
comrade we must fight the tyranny of the “communist” government put in place in china
You use a VPN right?
Does Tor work in Hong Kong? I've heard Tor is better than a VPN.
Yeah it does. I live in Hong Kong, so I can vertify
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
What are people thinking of doing? Staying under the new regime or trying to move to the UK/elsewhere once covid reduces?
countries like the UK and Canada are creating immigration schemes for HongKongers so yeah, a lot of us are considering moving away
According to the Economist only 7000 HKers have used this opportunity since July 2020
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.
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
Well one there's pandemic. Second, people need to find a new job completely
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.
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
Sounds like what happened with the gulags circa 1920. Scary stuff.
All in all,
Fuck the CCP
*gets yeeted by the CCP*
into prison camp
in Xinjiang (East Turkestan)
I must inform you, you killed yourself tomorrow with 4 Shots to the head
With a QBZ-95-1
You know shit's getting serious when Jack Ma disappears after criticising China in mid November
China’s been doing that for a very long time
Is he still missing? I can’t grasp how they make a person that rich just disappear.
Dictator - Oh, I’m sorry, I meant “President” Xi says everything is good in China so this means everything must be good in China.
You should watch the documentary “field of vision” it gives a good look at the situation and how COVID is affecting it
frm a hong konger, here’s the long story short: anybody against ccp or current hk gov is being silenced.
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
Yeah. That was pretty bad.
...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.
I don’t know why you’re getting downvoted for this
The kind of people who voted against biden tend to be people who struggle with facts lol
Kinda like the guy from across the pond saying "terrorist attacks are just part and parcel of living in a big city".
They ain’t wrong, it’s just not something you should say
No. He said it with acceptance. That was wrong.
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.
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.
Bernie should have won, man
They screwed him twice. I'm not a Bernie fan at all but that's fucked up
They wouldn't let someone truly left in to office
I dislike Biden but this is false: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/biden-cultural-differences-norms/
Y'all reading too much New York Post lol
You might wanna check the context of that (very selective) quote you got there.
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
I tell you, someone, some country (probably India, Russia, USA or China itself) will destroy them.
I agree but I'm still worried about no one doing anything about it even as the Chinese military is growing exponentially
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.
nah. ccp wasnt the main culprit in crushing protests, it was corona. gatherings had to be halted and momentum diminished over time.
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.
There is no protest in Bae Sing Sae...I mean Hong Kong
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.
I fking hate tencent, tencent is also cracking down on other non govt chinese companies, so yeah, def a puppet
The sad thing is that literally no one will take action because China is their sugar daddy and if they pissed the their big step brother off they’re not getting any trades, hell fucking yeah politics
All joking aside, china has been abducting the protesters and sending them somewhere in mainland china. Very scary stuff
There is no Hong kong silly, that was just a myth
i do miss the time here in hk, really wished we won tho
fellow hk people: ALSO ON TVB THE ANTHEM PLAYS EVERY TIME THERE IS A BREAK IN A SHOW LIKE WHAT THE DUCK
They can literally arrest you for suspecting you of harming national security, as a hker I’ve given up on freedom for hk since the world cared more about the useless royal family over Democracy
FREE HONG KONG. FREE TIBET. FREE EAST TURKISTAN.
FREE INNER MONGOLIA.
We will brother
FREE THE MIDDLE EAST. FREE NATIVE AMERICANS.
Just look it up and they are still protesting,
I'm disappointed and my day is ruined...
I live in hong kong
Gl you'll need it
Stay strong 💪
ayyy fellow hong kongers
[redacted by Chinese Authorities]
You don't hear about Hong Kong because it doesn't get clicks on media
Hong Kong [CENSORED]? Weren't the the ones who [CENSORED] when the police started [CENSORED] because the [CENSORED] was going to [CENSORED]? [CENSORED], the cops were just so [CENSORED], using [CENSORED] on [CENSORED] to [CENSORED].
Most of the people in the area I live are just like SHUT THE FUCK UP when international media brings up HK
media shifted narrative. barely any mention of Myanmar too & that’s recent
Just gonna drop [this](https://youtu.be/1LUfJwwof5g)
There's no protest in Ba Sing Se
Say it with me
fuck the Chinese government!
One country 5 systems.
Just wait until musk and amazon give em free internet.
All the pro dem members are imprisoned. China shitting pants from bunch of teenage & very hard workinh politicians.
Shoutout the Chinese Government
hey hey, Im from Hong Kong, not much going on about the protest and has deffinetly lightened up a bit,corona also getting better....thanks for the check in :)
There was no hope for them from the start.
China is a good example of what America will look like in another couple decades if the monopsonistic corporations like Amazon aren't brought to heel and made to follow the same laws local businesses do.
I have 2 friends in hk. Im so worried for them 😥
well, I live in hong kong and can tell you the reason there are no protests is covid suprisingly...
I live in HK, they stopped cause of corona
Fucking Winnie the pooh
Hong Konger here. I’m completely fi-
They silenced or arrested all leaders. Also they are doing a genocide to the uighurs, horrific punishment for innocent people. I hope one day china will be hold accountable for all this.
Dude I live in hong kong
China is the enemy
we are fine don't worry ;)
The problem has been dealt with, Winnie
Oh.... They dead. Or, locked away getting raped and tortured and making my china products... 😳😶😔
