Every Voice Matters - a #HongKongProtest art thread

We take a look at some #MeiWithHongKong artwork, and explore the influences of gaming on our protest art, as well as the movement itself. 1/18
HK mvmt’s newest icon is a scientist called Mei from Xi’an who shoots w/ her ice guns. When Blizzard punished gamer @blitzchung for supporting HK in an after-match interview, netizens decided in all their chaotic goodness to co-opt Mei into a revolutionary protest figure. 2/18
The internet turned Mei into a HKer. She douses out tg. She's an ☂️ in hand, shield at her hips, & sensibly wears a gas mask. And she shouts the words that got @blitzchung banned, the words that hv become HKer's rallying cry - 'Liberate HK, Revolution of our times!’ 3/18

1/ I want to tell a story about me and violence.
It was back to July 21, I was dragging my body back home at midnight after a long day of protest. I lay in my bed, Priscilla was asleep, and I scroll on my phone in the dark. My newsfeed was swarmed with footages..
2/ featuring thugs who held metal rods and hit train passengers indiscriminately at a train station. These hired thugs, later confirmed as gangs connected to pro-Beijing lawmaker and the Chinese liaison office of Hong Kong. They were beating people under the watch of the police..
3/ some were escorted personally by riot police to their safe haven.

I barely slept that night, adrenaline in my body kept me awake. My mind kept rehearsing how would I defend the passengers if I was on the train. The next day, terror has occupied the atmosphere of Hong Kong.

China mentions #Kashmir

#Turkey and #Malaysia mentions #Kashmir

#Bangladesh mentions the 1971 genocide

But PM Modi didn't utter a word on





#Kurdistan or

declare to recognize #ArmenianGenocide

#India's idealism is frustrating
How can India argue for its place at #UNSC when we remain silent on major issues?

इतने ही तटस्थ हो नाव लेकर गंगा में काहे जाते हो

बैठो घाट पर और चिलम पियो

Yes, Kasmir is an issue

Make it an issue

Talk about #HinduGenocide in Pakistan

Talk about #Balochsitan #OrdinanceXX
PM Modi is the leader of India

His words matter

His anger will be discussed

His warning will be heeded to

Scrapping #Article370 is huge step in India but in global geopolitics, it is just a much-delayed step

Drop the hesitation...

6 days ago I made a Instagram post in support of freedom for Hong Kong. This is a 7 year old art that I've posted many times without issue. The only difference is this time I made the post in support of Hong Kong fighting for freedom against the oppressive Chinese government.
The next day, my post was removed for "hate speech". This isn't Instagram's fault. The Chinese government paid attackers to mass report me, thus triggering the algorithm to automatically remove my post. I appealed the removal and my art was restored.
However, ever since that day, I've been shadowbanned as well and I'm still shadowbanned. No doubt due to the same abuse of report button by the paid attackers. The Chinese government have figure out a way to censor and control free speech even outside of their country.

America says NO to the destructive plague of #globalism. It is not an alternative governing system, but an international criminal cooperative who rose up the political and corporate ladders to form an alliance of evil that seeks to enslave and eventually eliminate free people.
Don't fall for their lies or attempts to appeal to your empathy and good nature. They know you just want to do what's right so they say stuff you want to hear so they can grab the reins of power through your vote - then lock down the system so you cannot remove them. AWAKEN!
They've become so powerful, you would never dream that the most familiar of faces, the ones we thought were on our side, are members of this gargantuan organized crime gang; performing disgusting acts and crimes against humanity, all while mastering the art of public deception.

Sebuah panduan taktik para demonstran di Hongkong ketika berunjuk rasa. Panduan yang mungkin akan berguna saat melakukan aksi turun ke jalan.

Cara meredam gas air mata: jangan lupa bawa tumbler, tak lupa sarung tangan anti panas.
Jangan lupa bawa sarung tangan anti-panas. Suhu proyektil gas air mata yang baru ditembakkan bisa capai 70 derajat. Cukup buat kulitmu terkelupas.

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. #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"?… #Qanon #GreatAwakening #Itshappening

HK will likely ignite again on June 12 when the extradition bill is scheduled for second reading. Calls for actions have are now circulating in Telegram groups. Not heeding the popular will is going to have dire long term consequences for the HK government.
More calls for protest on June 12
Intersting poster, @jwassers. Goes to what you said the other week about protest as a form of learning and not an attempt to escape education.

Time lapse video of Hong Kong protests against extending the Chinese police state to the territory, by @stilltalkin
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.
