2020 New Year's March @ Hong Kong Island

[2020 Jan 1] What a first day of the New Year and new decade for Hongkongers. Over a million of people took to the street again and I went out for my research projects as usual. After setting up the set of mini mobile Lennon Walls near Chater Garden in Central, I rushed to Tin Hau to join the crowd and march on. I was waiting to get into Victoria Park with thousands of Hongkongers around me. Three hours, we waited three hours in Tin Hau station and outside Victoria Park and then we received a message that Hong Kong Police Force suddenly and forcefully ended the peaceful and lawful demonstration, once again violating Hongkonger’s rights to protest and to express their opinion freely. The New Year protest has opened up a possibly tough 2020–a year that people in Hong Kong will have to continue the fight. #FightForFreedom #StandWithHongKong

今夏的反送中抗爭已經持續超過兩個月,幾百人被捕、受傷、數人失去生命,都換不到政府對廣大市民訴求的正視,「撤回」二字還是遙不可及!市民用各種抗爭手法,理性誠懇地表達訴求。我都繼續好好做自己的崗位。 最新文宣手足的宣傳品太利害,十分精美!我都不得不改進下自己的questionnaire guideline。之前印的過千張問卷指引已全部派清!今天準備了第二波!香港人,加油!#五大訴求決一不可 #反送中
