康有為 胡志明 孫中山 斯諾登以及其他許許多多這百多年來足跡遍佈香港嘅人，不論他們甚麼身份－革命家、知識分子、有良知的人、國父 加上更多無明但又係佢哋拯救世界之時路過香港的英雄 。這些在他們年代獨當一面的人物，想想現代的香港要政治打壓引導他們去別處受審？只能講句『送你條尾』！
rattrapant sur le sujet de l’extradition dans les derniers articles, je vous montre ces quartre noms parmi des nombreux
kang you wei, sun yat sen, ho chi minh, edward snowden
tous ces hommes, et plusieurs femmes et hommes connu-es et inconnu-es de leurs ères, ont changé pour le mieux le monde. tu me dirais l’extradition de hong kong à l’heure actuelle? j’ai deux mots pour toi – mon oeil!
the girl who lost the right eye to a bean bag round shot by the hong kong police on 11 August 2019 finally gathered some energy to give a brief statement. a lot of public anger in the past two weeks calling for “an eye for an eye”. i can’t imagine the courage and how poised she has been in the video. if i were put into the same situation, traumatized is an understatement.
lots of flyers/artwork also emerged and keep on pumping out on various lennon walls in hong kong. here are a few of the examples.
alluding to street fighters or protesters:
another bloodied eye also appeared on the background towards the right above!
alleged gangster, people like him bring shame to new territories folks, given i grew up and my parents devoted their youth and career in the NT.

Lee Tung Ave, under the new year’s celebrative red was not quite it was for those small business owners and residents who got chased out of the area for this development. Now, full of roman alphabet signage next to the occasional, seasonal tradition chinese festivals’ decor, one must wonder how much of the original characteristics of the community have been preserved, if at all.
meanwhile, over the other side of the pond by tsim sha tsui waterfront, setting-up and rehearsals for the lunar new year day parade and performances are underway.
pourquoi cet art national qui démontre normalement la beauté de la vie ou le bonheur montre un visage semblablement méchant? peut être c’est un cœur dur et froid qui fait une apparition non-déguisée.
So this has been a weekend loaded with activities I attended haphazrdly. The Kowloon City Bookfair, which is running its 6th annual leg, finally fit into my junky, over-the-head, boisterous music-by-the-habourfront weekend. Organised by young literary connoisseurs, back by a creativity-oriented high school, a think tank, etc., the bookfair is a mélange of talks, roundtables, flea market, mini-bookfair and a mini-concert. Free of charge to everybody, coarse but ever-evolving, it’s what this overcrowded and over-developped city needs if Hong Kong were to slow down and smell some roses, or fresh air!
Thanks to a random gift of kindness, I set foot in West Kowloon waterfront for Clockenflap, probably the last time in a while by the West Kowloon waterfront since constructions will be swung into actions in the coming years.
My previous impression of this “music festival” has been some gweilos replicating rock concerts spiced with burning man. Upon entering I was upset with the overfloated plastic recycle bin with all types of trash. A day later however, a politically charged performance by “my little airport” sort of eased my displeasure. Well, in a non-perfect world, room for improvement is the key!
This might be the first in a series, for a duration not yet known, on the latest civil disobedience in Hong Kong in 2014. Let’s build up curiosity by looking at media, especially state media first!
Maybe Russia and China really are secretly in love, or are they not-so-secret buddies?
Russia Today said “protest turns violent” at the title of its piece posted September 28, 2014 16:33(Moscow time?)
even though it did use the words “pro-democracy” in the report.
Hong Kong police used tear gas and pepper spray on a crowd of pro-democracy protesters who ignored warnings and blocked the city’s main highway. The violence came after several days of student protests.
Meanwhile, China’s official news portal labelled the protest “spun out of control” http://www.china.org.cn/china/2014-09/29/content_33643206.htm

Manifestantes prodemocracia paralizan puntos neurálgicos en Hong Kong
Paralyse it we should, not neuro-logistical centre of Hong Kong, rather the injustice of puppet electoral systems, oligarchy and neoliberalism! Can we?
