i‘ve started to record the graffiti left behind by protesters since they stormed the legislature on July 1. it gives you a glimpse of what they‘re thinking. here are some i took from #PolyU today:
“Why would uni be turned into battlefield?”
“Young people have died, but you live.”
“give me back my ‘sau zuk’ (which means ‘hands and feet’- the term protesters call each other)”
“it’s a sin to be numb and indifference”
“give me liberty or give me death”
“I have nth to lose. I have no stake in the society” (mocking carrie lam’s earlier remarks)
“why should we attend classes when there is no future”
“how much you have to lose in order to wake you up?” (“death”)
“go on strike, adults”
“i only want to study. why would i come out to block bullets if i have a choice?”
“i’m willing to sacrifice myself for our land”
“until the final victory”
“i would only marry the girls who back us up [in the protests]”
(“i would only marry the boys on the frontline”)
“it was the govt who taught us peaceful protests are useless”
“please dont waste the ‘fire magic’ (petrol bombs)! it’s very difficult to take them here!”
“stop wasting fire magic! they are very precious”

apparently some have been practising how to hurl petrol bombs at the pool here
“dear comrades, we have brought lots of troubles to you all in #polyU because of our insufficient preparation. we’re terribly sorry!”
(“it’s ok. we forgive you guys.”)
