[In every 700 #Hongkongers, one was arrested because of #HongKongProtests]

1. Since the outbreak of #HKprotests last year, 9672 #HKers have been arrested when they protested against injustice, with 2093 prosecuted.
2. With arrestees from 11yo kid to 84yo elderly, #hkpolice is now staging the biggest political purge across generations in the city, especially at the time when #hkgov attempting to rewrite history, whitewash #policebrutality and censor textbooks.
3. You may wonder what #HKers can still do under draconian #nationalsecuritylaw, arbitrary arrests, unchecked police violence that even targets pregnant women, and also the detentions of 12 asylum seekers in #China, with their fate still unknown for nearly 2 weeks.

[#Thread - 831 incident explained]

1/ On the night of 31 Aug 2019, a police operation that took place at Prince Edward MTR station has caused controversy and left us with many unanswered questions. Here's a timeline of what happened that night and beyond.

2/ At around 22:37, many protesters boarded a Kwun Tong (green) line train at Mong Kok after leaving street clashes with the police. A dispute erupted between protesters and some of the passengers on board as the train entered Prince Edward station.

3/ The dispute then escalated into a confrontation and a man was seen wielding a hammer towards protesters (the man appeared about 8 minutes into the video linked above).

رشتو/ رژیم #توتالیتر_پوشالی و نبرد ما 1:

کاربرانِ گرامی، رژیم ایران یک توتالیترِ فریبنده و پوشالی هست و این در چند واژۀ ساده یعنی، نه اقتدارِ نظامی دارد و نه اقتدارِ امنیتیِ آن، آن چیزیست که سالها پیش داشت!!.../
رژیم هایِ توتالیتر مبتنی بر ایدئولوژی، پس از مدتی که کارآمدیِ ایدئولوژیک و رهبرِ کاریزماتیکِ آنها (در این مثال خمینیِ شیطان) از بین میرود، تمامِ سحرآمیز بودن و مسخ شوندگیِ خود را از دست میدهند.../
خامنه ایِ ویروس، هیچوقت نتوانست کاریزمایِ خمینی را داشته باشد و از این رو بسیارهم عصبانی و حساس شده و این موضوعی بسیار شایانِ توجه است چرا که تمامی تلاشِ خود را برایِ بر قراریِ همان جذبۀ بنیانگزارِ ج.ا گذاشت اما نا توان مانده.../

I was just on my way to grab lunch when I saw officers wearing helmets and shields enter the luxury Landmark mall. They rounded up a handful of boys who had been staging a small lunchtime protest inside. #HongKongProtests Image
Multiple police vans and a couple dozen cops to deal with 4 boys inside a mall. ImageImage
Again, they’re quite young. One of them is a dedicated lunchtime protest leader. It appears as though the plainclothes cops were the ones charged with grabbing them and taking their info down. ImageImage

@HKMarkSimon , right hand man to @JimmyLaiApple DMed me amd asked if I wish to write for Apple daily. I have since refused. Note below that Next Digital, the owner of Apple Daily, which suffers from heavy losses for abt a decade seem to focus on fighting some "cause and belief "
As they have the money in the bank. What @HKMarkSimon fails to realise is that " money in the bank" belongs solely to the shareholders and not him or Jimmy. The listco duty to the shareholders is to maximize returns and not use their money to fight the #ccp or whatever cause.
I have asked Mark repeatedly whether his statement has been relayed to the market or the shareholders but he has failed to reply for over a week. Hence in the interest of transparency, I am sharing the screenshots above. Do exercise caution.

Police have raised a yellow flag warning the crowd that they are breaching the law in Causeway Bay. Police have essentially kettled this section of Lockhart Rd, with the only way out one MTR exit. People are not streaming out. #hongkongprotests Image
Police have so thoroughly blocked roads in Causeway Bay that @JessiePang0125 and I are forced to take the MTR one stop to get out. Despite there not being cars — because the police have blocked the roads — officers were still making ppl stay on the sidewalk.
Just got threatened with pepper spray for taking photos of an elderly man yelling at the police. They threatened him but others managed to pull him away.

The #NatSecLaw is officially in use. HKPF stated chanting slogans and waving flags, or even just having those intentions, would land you in jail.

#BREAKING: The national security law imposed by Beijing gazetted. In force immediately, the widely-disputed law is deemed by many to further squeeze Hong Kong people’s liberty. Many organisations have disbanded afterwards. #HongKongProtests…
One of the characteristics is this law is its overarching scope. Article 38 says this law is also applicable to non-Hong Kong permanent residents. If they violate the law outside Hong Kong, they can be held justiciable. #HongKongProtests
According to article 29 (5), any behaviour that triggers hatred towards the central govt and the Hong Kong govt are also punishable by this law. This again has shown the overarching quality of this law, which has seldom been seen in other existing laws in the city.

I've been a (not hugely active) volunteer member of the advisory board for years, which means that periodically I hear from people who want to know - given the US's long history of overseas spook fuckery - why they shouldn't assume this is a CIA front.

I have a great answer for them! You can tell this isn't a nefarious scheme to backdoor the tools that marginalized and oppressed people around the world (and in the USA) rely on because all that code is free and open. You can audit it for backdoors. Others can too. They have.

#chinaindiaborder Cooking is an organized activity. you practically know every ingredient, action and are certain with 99.9% confidence you are in control.
Let us assume a husband, as he has to eat the food ( patriarchy, yes) wants to know a report readiness of each step +
#chinaindiaborder wants to get status update, wants to know the temperature of fire, and in between wants third party validation on risk of gas running out and HSE audit.
Actually what he wants to know is knowable. Feasible. But marriage is the price#
#chinaindiaborder compare it to what is happening in border. Everything is evolving. Nothing is in control. I can understand the Chinese stooges cranking up for stutus, a minute by minute status. But why are outside bright spots doing it?
That is our curse.

Lunchtime protest happening right now at Pacific Place. You never really know how many protesters actually showed up (and how many are just curious bystanders) until you hear them chant.
It’s one of the bigger lunchtime protests I’ve seen: the march has 50-100 participants.
This is the first time I’ve heard the popular #BlackLivesMatter chant “no justice, no peace” at the #HongKongProtests

Protestors have once again taken to the streets in Central, temporarily paralyzing road traffic as they begin their march in defiance of a ban issued by the police.
Earlier: Chater Garden, onlookers on a bus heading home as the anti-riot police cordon off the area. Today marks the 1yr anniversary of the day where a million took to the streets in protest of the #AntiExtraditionBill that would later be also known as the #HongKongProtests.
The police have once again raised the blue flag as the march down Queen's Road Central, traffic at a complete standstill.

It is the one-year anniversary of the first major march of the #HongKongProtests. Earlier, people spilled over from Chater Garden into the nearby luxury malls. The chants were deafening in the pedestrian tunnel.
Protesters had started marching westward, taking up at least half of queen’s road.
Police charged down from the west side of the road, making a handful of arrests. Police have now formed a line on Jubilee St.

for those who don’t have fb, an update from the BLM protest

this means police are 100% gonna be there and in close proximity to protestors, so be very careful
however this exchange really worried me. can someone who is Safe on facebook explain to her why people are worried???????????? christ almighty asking for proof of safety in hk is not trolling
“let’s avoid drama”, “stop trolling” — i.e. the HKPF are our friends and your concerns are annoying. stop trying to confirm your safety and just don’t show up if you disagree

Major events that led to 1962 Indo-China war(1/n)

1. In 1947, #India and Pakistan are formed. In 1949, Communist China win Civil war. Communists form People's Republic of China(PRC) - #China and Nationalists form Republic of China(ROC)-Taiwan.

2. Following this in 1950, Chacha rejects a permanent seat offered to India in the UN Security Council by US. It was assumed that India replacing China in UNSC would offend both PRC and USSR. India favours China. China becomes permanent UNSC member.

3. 1n 1950, China shows interest in acquiring Tibet(Led by Spiritual/Political leader, The Dalai Lama 14th). Chacha refused to think of the idea of using military force to deter the Chinese. No support given to Tibet. India sides with China.
