THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION
We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.
風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.
It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.
Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.
Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.
SAVE HONG KONG.
DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

Pro-democracy protesters kick-started an occupation of central Hong Kong after students clashed with the city’s police, prompting thousands of people to take to the streets in support.

Depression is such a cruel punishment. There are no fevers, no rashes, no blood tests to send people scurrying in concern. Just the slow erosion of the self, as insidious as any cancer. And, like cancer, it is essentially a solitary experience. A room in hell with only your name on the door.

These days our city has faced her darkest time.
It is very hard. We only got umbrellas with our hands, a pair of laboratory goggles, and a raincoat. But our police, has pepper spray,tear gas and some more weapons towards us.
But we will not be afraid and we’re not gonna stop our step to go further.
The light of hope will never dim.
I am so proud to be a hongkonger.
God bless my city, god bless hong kong.
