A community performance of Les Misérables in Mei Foo. The performers are musicians who hope to reach Hongkongers from all walks of life. The final song of the night is the unofficial anthem, Glory to Hong Kong, and it is a hit with the audience.
Renowned writer Tang Siu Wa who was arrested at #PolyU on a rioting charge was the guest of the night. She shared her experiences and recommended Eduardo Galeano’s “El libro de los abrazos” to the audience. Aye, Writers! They gotta namedrop and get others to read all the time! (:
A lovely older gentleman shared with me, “Great performance tonight! Although I only know this song.” This is “Do You Hear the People Sing”, now a protest anthem in Hong Kong. Fun fact: the song is now banned in China.
@OzraeliAvi was there to film and conduct interviews, but people were queuing up to take photos with him.
#GrandpaChan said, “We must fight for justice, for the oppressed, and those who have sacrificed.” Audience immediately responded by chanting, “Disband the police”. The elderly activist had suffered from an officer’s senseless use of pepper spray, an unforgettable scene to many.
