I’m really emotional about this:

The protestors in Hong Kong’s “Umbrella Revolution” have begun to use “Do You Hear the People Sing?” as their anthem, and it’s just really striking that the message and music from Les Mis are so transcendental even 200 years after the events.

It’s almost like there’s solidarity across the time gap. Powerful.

What is this Student Strike and why is it happening in Hong Kong?

On 31st August 2014, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) made a decision on issues regarding the methods of election of the Chief Executive of HKSAR as well as the members of the Legislative Council of HKSAR in the years 2017 and 2016 respectively. The nomination of the Chief Executive, which holds the highest authority in Hong Kong, will be made by the Election Committee of the 2012 Chief Executive Election, but not the general public. This means that our choices for the Chief Executive is filtered by the Chinese government, and this violates the one country, two systems agreement that we have with China. 

The students in Hong Kong are striking at peace, with non-violent behaviours, yet the police are adamant in removing them from PUBLIC grounds by force, arresting our fellow classmates and using violence.

I understand that most of you may not live in Hong Kong, but the situation here is grave. We do not want a repeat of the Tiananmen Massacre and we are urging the government to release the arrested students.

Those who are not participating in the strike has currently been cut off from live feed from our major TV station and we are scared that this means the police will be stepping up their forces in removing students from the strike. 

Please support Hong Kong by signing our petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/support-hong-kong-democracy-and-prevent-second-tiananmen-massacre-hong-kong/dfdCpQZz

I have seen Tumblr work miracles, and I hope that you can help us too.
