I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

What's happening in Hong Kong?

fireinthehob:

  • The protests are being held in order to achieve universal suffrage in Hong Kong. Although democracy had been promised for 2017 in 2008, China announced this August that Hong Kong people would only be able to vote from a pool of 2-3 specially selected candidates (all of whom…

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENING IN HONG KONG NOW

This video is made by Crixus Yuen, I don’t own anything.

————————————————————————————————————-

I am a Hong Konger, and we hold a pro-democracy protest to fight for the freedom we deserved. However, Hong Kong Police uses violence including tear gas and GUN to stop us, even though we did it in a peaceful way. Lots of people got hurt, INCLUDING THE ELDERLY AND TEENAGERS.

WE ARE PROTECTING OUR RIGHT AND WE DONT DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT

It doesnt matter if you are a Hong Konger or not.  If you support us to fight for our freedom. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO.  

Please take a moment out of your day to share the video to support the people of Hong Kong. They are shooting people with rubber bullets and tear gassing them. This is not okay.

I’ve been drawing constantly these past few days. In lieu of NYFW, I thought to myself, what if Konoha had their own Fashion Week? So this is the product of said theory.

I went and incorporated certain aspects of their personality into their looks. Regarding Sakura, I didn’t want to pair her up with a red ensemble because pink and red are a pretty horrid color combo, so instead I drew her with a stylized Jounin flak jacket. Ino’s coat was the most fun to color, whilst Hinata’s entire look was the most challenging. As for the boys, it was pretty easy designing looks for them. Naruto’s orange sweater, Shikamaru’s button down, and Kiba’s shoes are probably what I would really want to wear in real life.

Time: Each piece took about 3 hours, but I did it within 3 days.

Materials: Bristol Board, Copic Markers, Gel Pen, Multiliners.

Hello!

Wow, it’s been a while huh? How are all of you doing?

I still check up on tumblr from time to time, but I don’t post anymore. You all probably know the reason why, since I did talk about it a few posts back. 

I hope all of you are doing well!

If you’d like, do check my new blog! I update on there regularly. It’s more streamlined and organized. You can find that, right over >—here—<

I’d appreciate if you did check it out, but if not then that’s totally okay. Until then! I’ll see you all soon!
