THIS IS WHAT HAPPENING IN HONG KONG NOW
This video is made by Crixus Yuen, I don’t own anything.
I am a Hong Konger, and we hold a pro-democracy protest to fight for the freedom we deserved. However, Hong Kong Police uses violence including tear gas and GUN to stop us, even though we did it in a peaceful way. Lots of people got hurt, INCLUDING THE ELDERLY AND TEENAGERS.
WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHT AND WE DONT DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT
It doesnt matter if you are a Hong Konger or not. If you support us to fight for our freedom. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO.
Shit happened to Ferguson is happening in Hong Kong right now!
Students were just protesting peacefully for genuine democracy around Admiralty and Central, yet the police force used pepper spray, tear gas and violence to disperse the crowd. According to the protesters, the police even raided a first aid booth with pepper spray.
I strongly believe that Hong Kong students need more support.
They are self driven. They are unarmed.
They fight for democracy yet what they earned was violence and pepper spray.
Indeed, every coin had two sides, in some cases police are antagonised, and some students are misled to do something extreme.
This riot should end. And we shall have genuine democracy.
Give them a voice.
All we need is universal suffrage, not universal suffering.
New Era of Civil Disobedience
Anti-government activists gather during a protest in Hong Kong, China, late Saturday and in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014.
Pro-democracy protesters kick-started an occupation of central Hong Kong after students clashed with the city’s police, prompting thousands of people to take to the streets in support.
China said last month that candidates for the 2017 leadership election must be vetted by a committee, angering pro-democracy campaigners who say the group is packed with business executives and lawmakers who favor Beijing.

CNN breaking news:
I’ve been living in Hong Kong since the day I was born, 1999. Yet, today will be a memorable one.
Today, 27th, is the day we students protest against the government.
I don’t quite pay attention to politics, but as a Form 4 student, I can’t let my classmates stand alone in the dark, they’ve been stayed outside the HK government office for days, they were arrested and pepper sprayed by once our honorable police, they were scolded by the elderlies, we are under pressure.
I argued with my parents, they concern my safety and firmly disagree I go, so I can only spread the news out and tell people outside the world what is happening in Hong Kong.
If anyone doesn’t know the ‘story’, I’ll tell you.
According to the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC), they will choose 1200 people from four parties in Hong Kong to form a nomination committee, and they will be representing us to elect the chief executive. They firstly will nominate 2-3 candidates, then after voting, candidates with more that 50% of the votes will be selected and it’s our turn to vote.
The problem here is those 1200 people does not represent our wish, they are mainly rich people and they don’t support us, so their decision must not be what we want, and it turns out we are choosing among the 2-3 candidates. Let’s take an example, 1200 people have chosen 3 rotten oranges, and they force you to choose one of them to eat, you want to choose the other one, but no, you have to choose among these three rotten oranges.
So, the battle begins, we protest.
