For those wondering why there are increasing conflicts between pro-nation state China and pro-HK folks, it is due to different understandings and beliefs of what the #HongKongProtests are about:

1. Belief in ethnic and cultural unity as a collective supersedes individualism.
Geopolitical reasons aside, this belief by mainland nationalists is also one of the key reasoning why they lay “claim” to Taiwan. Sorry, let alone how Taiwan is culturally and ethnically diverse, along with active reconciliation efforts toward aboriginal peoples on the island,
this type of identity politics to justify geopolitical aggression and construction and reinforcement of blind hegemonic nationalism is very dangerous.

We’ve already seen religious and ethnic minority cleansing, most notable with Tibet and now in #Xinjiang with the #Uyghurs.

10/01: Within an hour of the #LennonWall being built at Aberdeen Station, pro-CCP Mainland Chinese nationalists are destroying it and intimidating people. Ugly, disrespectful actions.

Part 1:

📍Richmond, Canada.
#HongKongProtests #cansaveHK
Part 2:

(not in video but important situational context) Lennon Wall Organizers and event-goers reported on the telegram group that they are being followed by Pro-CCP people as they leave the event. They don't feel safe.

Police stepped in, luckily. Pics coming.
Pro-CCP people, translated:

"It's our freedom (to be here and destroy the wall)."
"China killed people? Hong Kong killed people. Hasn't Canada killed people too?"
"It's you that started insulting us."
"Doesnt Canada doesn't have problems too?"
"Who hit who? No one hit anyone"

Hong Kong's "Summer of Dissent" [thread]. I'm starting a series of illustrations to explain some of the context of the current protests. I think what is happening right now is history in the making and I want to add perspective to some of the reporting I've seen. #hongkongprotest
