I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

While we’re calling out youtubers with a large following who are total creeps, can we add Adrian Van Oyen to the list? He’s an Australian youtuber who legit made a video where he approached women naked, as in totally unclothed, and many of them were visibly distressed.

I know someone who was the victim of a pervert who chose to expose himself to her, and the dude went to jail. Because this is criminal behaviour. The video is age restricted, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is a disgusting example of sexual harassment. And completely illegal in Australia. 

I’ve been to the areas where he filmed this video, and it’s a family friendly park environment. I can only hope no children had to witness this asshat.

When he’s not taking a stroll sans clothing, he likes to use the phrase, ‘I’m just going to go for it,’ and kiss totally unsuspecting women without any consent. He has over a million subscribers and I hate to think about the influence this guy has, and he’s using it to do stupid crap like this. Can people please join me in reporting this guy? (You can find his channel here.)

(Also, heads up anyone from Brisbane, Australia. He likes to film in the City/Southbank, so keep an eye out.)

Ferguson residents return for another day of protesting to find that overnight the police had ripped up their signs and threw them in the dumpster.
