Q: How much do #HKPolice’s pro-#China cowards fear FREEDOM & DEMOCRACY?

A: So much that they’ll use 8 heavily-armored thugs to beat one of #HongKong’s peaceful protestors into submission.

#HKPolice have literally BASHED THIS MAN’S SKULL 💀. He has profuse bleeding from his head. Pray for him & #PrayforHongKong. 🙏

#HongKong’s #PoliceTerrorism must STOP. #Congress must pass the #HKHumanRightsandDemocracyAct & @POTUS must SANCTION #HKPF.

… there are literally no words to describe #HKPolice’s excessive force other than “#PoliceBrutality & #PoliceTerrorism.”

WATCH how #HongKong’s #HKPF are indiscriminately beating young, peaceful protestors & bystanders. Many are probably just commuters!

So, if we're interested in transparency with accountability, we shdn't just bloviate on social media. We also have to take advocacy for access to quality public education v seriously. Without accessible quality education, accountable democracy has limited reach
