wow! #HongKongers calling for international help to #StandWithHongKong and join the worldwide march on 9.29

#HongKong #HongKongProtest
Police banning a march again and again? #HongKongers will not be deterred to speak out again and again.
#HongKongers really don't give a damn whether there is @hkpoliceforce's "permission" to march, you can't silence the voices by suppression. This is Hong Kong, not in mainland China.

A Trump delete/retweet with no grammatical changes - but code is still easy.
Note is posted on 6/13/2019 -"not ready today"
He deletes at 13th minute = 13th day = today
He retweets it 21st minute = something big to happen in #Iran within 8 days! #Qanon
New Trump tweet delete changing "i" to "u"
1st tweet = 12th min = Day of interview which has been used in countless hit pieces since. Changing "i" to "u" of "Ridiculous" = Asking allies to turn this argument from himself to them. trumptwitterarchive.com/archive #Qanon #GreatAwakening
Trump misspelling - Lockheed -> Lockhead - context of Coatesville- Pennsylvania = connected with 9/11- and Lockheed = planes perhaps some info is about to get "unlocked"? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coatesvil… #Qanon #GreatAwakening #Itshappening

Important point by @AsiaMTI director @GregPoling — the police state founded by Mao is not the only possible future for China, but a better one depends on international support for free expression such as #Hongkongprotest today.
