Chances are if you are reading this journal you will probably noticed that I changed my avatar to a yellow ribbon. This is to show my support for the umbrella revolution happening right now back in Hong Kong, my home city. I don't usually talk about politics here on my DeviantArt page, but as a citizen of Hong Kong, I just have to since politics and arts are directly influencing each other.

Before I start, let's have a brief history lesson. Hong Kong was under British rule before 1997, and in the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984, both sides agree that Hong Kong will hand back to China in July 1997. So under the "One Country, Two Systems" principle, Hong Kong will still enjoy a high degree of autonomy sans the diplomacy and military defense, meaning Hong Kong is pretty much a nation by itself like Singapore except that it's still under China. The Basic Law stated that the Chief Executive, the leader of Hong Kong, will eventually be selected through election, i.e. universal suffrage. Eventually both Hong Kong and China agreed that HongKongers can elect their own Chief Executive by 2017.

But that's just what's written on paper. In reality however, China's National People's Congress stated that "you can still have your election--- as long as we got to screen the candidates to make sure that they are patriotic". That's not how democracy works, obviously, so students begin to boycott classes for one week. But then things begin to escalates when the cops decided to clear them out using pepper spray when they are protesting peacefully, so everyone rushed to help them by delivering the supplies to the Government HQ, where they are protesting. Soon enough it breaks into a full-scale civil disobedience after the police used tear gas in an attempt to drive off the crowd, with people occupying the CBDs of Hong Kong. They survived pepper spray, tear gas, triad and Anti-Occupy Central mob attacks (I'm not making this shit up, there REALLY are triad gang members who are paid to wreck a havoc and beating the living shit out of the protestors WHO DID NOTHING BUT PROTESTING PEACEFULLY in one of our occupy zones. This is a very common tactic in totalitarian states, including Russia under Vladimir Putin.) yet here I am in Canada, I can't do anything but watching the whole movement unfold, or at least, went to a march to protest about it.

Even we faced waves of challenges, from the onslaught from the police and the Anti-Occupy Central activists (though most of them are like rent-a-thugs), to the slander of the Chinese state media and local pro-Beijing media, we Hongkongese, still stands strong against a government that does not listen to the people's voices. I never feel so proud as a HongKonger in my life.

I will just leave a Wikipedia link for those who want to read more about it: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Hon…


Go Hong Kong! 香港加油!

Do you take requests?
Can you draw Sonic with two heads talking to each other politely?
Or can you make a picture of two Sonics hugging each other?
