The democracy ship has sailed
“This action undermines the democratic processes and freedoms that have underpinned Hong Kong’s prosperity.”
“How vulnerable a country is to be afraid of a post by a group of teenagers.”
“a sweat camp for athletes.”
Not the same as it ever was
“We will get in trouble and we’ll be disappeared.”
“…authorities have the remit to dictate the way people around the world talk about the city’s contested politics.”
This is all happening at a record pace
Sweeping arrests for… carrying signs
“[T]hey have a different form of government.”
“Red lines shouldn’t be crossed.”
“Booing, changing the lyrics or disrespecting the song is now punishable with up to three years in prison…”
“China has replaced this promised formula of ‘one country, two systems’ with ‘one country, one system.'”
“…prosecutors charged Ms. Meng with fraudulently deceiving four banks into making transactions to help Huawei evade United States sanctions against Iran.”
“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China.”
Rubber bullets and tear gas, arrests… the usual
“This is the critical moment of the beginning of the end for every single citizen in HK.”
“…saddest day in Hong Kong history”
“[T]he effectiveness of mask-wearing against the coronavirus pandemic is huge.”
“the government may make wider use of so-called disqualification powers”
Starting July 1st.
Never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste
Flatten how many?
That had it under control until they didn’t
Also, when is a quarantine not a quarantine?
Shut it down
Captain Trips? Is that you?
New year, same protests for freedom.
“The night before Christmas was marked with tear gas and rubber bullets…”
Putting out the not welcome mat
I have a bad feeling about this.
“…they are enemies of the people.”
“…the man told his victims that Hong Kong belongs to China.”
“I am sorry and I accept accountability.”
“Whenever you see something wrong going on anywhere in the world, you should have the right to say, ‘That’s not right.'”
Might be a bit late to shut this down now
No harm, no foul
And the rose-err-nomination goes to…
The “blue flu” is spreading faster than COVID
The president is not king.
