Hong Kong's LADY LIBERTY - She symbolizes a new People's Revolution


(H.K.) Lady Liberty
 香港民主女神像

She wears a  豬嘴 Juu Jui ("Snout") and goggles, to protect her from the riot chemicals fired by Hong Kong's police.  A helmet protects her head from their blows, and a folded umbrella symbolizes the first-stage of Hong Kong's courageous resistance - the so-called "Umbrella Revolution". In her left hand is a banner promoting a call to revolution.  The shape and form of that revolution is unknown, but we should not doubt that the people of Hong Kong are resolved to fight for what remains of their freedoms.

Lady Liberty is the new symbol of Hong Kong's defiance of the C.C.P. , the former "Chinese Communist Party"  which has morphed into the world's most dangerous fascist state.


Statue of the Hong Kong - LADY LIBERTY, 2019

The helmeted rebel has been left unpainted for an excellent reason.  When Hong Kong residents witness LADY LIBERTY carried through their streets, she is an instantaneous reminder of the GODDESS OF DEMOCRACY, evidence of a surviving hunger for freedom in China. The statue, crushed by tyrants, had been hurriedly sculpted of white plaster on a light skeletal frame.   The Goddess of Freedom was erected on Tienanmen Square in Beijing in 1989, a simple act of peaceful protest that succeeded in thrilling the entire world. I was just one among millions of television viewers who watched in horror, as an entire regiment of PLA tanks and several columns of motorized infantry, moved into the square and proceeded to massacre thousands of unarmed Beijing citizens.  Taking the example, and accepting the fallen torch of freedom, the good people of Hong Kong have commemorated the Beijing Massacre each and every summer, for thirty years.

  The 豬嘴 Juu Jui of open defiance

The protests in Hong Kong are the most sophisticated we have seen, and they are an unexpected but truly welcome indication of many clever stratagems and improvisations to come.  The fascist regime in Beijing is nearing completion of a truly Orwellian nightmare - a society where surveillance is constant, and resistance will be rewarded with torture and extermination.  Resistance in Hong Kong, which must certainly evolve into an underground revolutionary struggle, will ultimately infect other Chinese cities with the contagious germ of freedom. 

The protesters  have necessarily developed a rich slang vocabulary, and one has actually become a symbol  of the rebellion.

豬嘴 Juu Jui - Cantonese for "snout".  The name given to the industrial-grade gas masks that protesters have adopted in the streets of Hong Kong.

And a few have even crafted improvised masks, such as these which appeared on Facebook on September 30.


The photograph below is rather clever, and it is a great example of the creativity that is common to Hong Kong's well-educated and hard working people.   Hong Kong's LADY LIBERTY is modular and is often moved about the city to create a rally point for the highly-mobile legions of protesters.  We see here some of the team members who move her about. The five young people are each wearing the disposable type surgical masks that have been used to deny intelligence to the tens of thousands surveillance cameras deployed in the city. Worse, undercover spies don black T-Shirts and try to infiltrate the movement.  They take photos of all who take a swig of water or need to wipe itchy perspiration from their face. 

The photograph simulates a diorama kit, the type of toy or souvenir that is popular throughout Asia.

I have not encountered any merchandise supporting Hong Kong freedom, and it is even scarce on the Internet. China maintains an army of goblins to fuck with any online merchandiser who dares to stand up to their naked aggression. Ask Jeff Bezos, the Amazon billionaire.  Here is  a news scrape of two protest T-shirts that were spotted, and apologies demanded.  When I locate any good "HK Lady Liberty" merchandise I will add information and links to this article.
