THE ART OF PROTEST - Defenders of Hong Kong. 2019

Tear Gas defender - Hong Kong Protest Art 2019
Hong Kong protest-art. This is a character I like to call
"TEAR GAS DEFENDER".  He is equipped to combat
police tear gas volleys. With his badminton racket he can
return some CS rounds, and for those already burning on
the asphalt, he covers with a warming lid from a restaurant.

The young people of Hong Kong are truly amazing.  They are are passionate about life and truly committed to defending the remaining freedoms that have made life tolerable since the Chinese occupation force arrived.  Hong Kong people are well-educated, creative, hard working and fiercely proud of the city and their Cantonese Culture.  What began as a protest months ago is now morphing into a revolution.  It is extremely impressive to witness their bravery and also their inexhaustible capability to innovate protest.  Western sheeple are easily bored, and in Hong Kong art  has become a tool in the competition for attention on the world stage.

"Fight for Freedom - Stand With Hong Kong" -  Hong Kong Protest art 2019
A pyramid of hero figures - and at its apex the Black flag of
Hong Kong' 2019 Revolution.  The battle colours of the
Hong Kong Revolution - Yellow and Black, are a superb
choice and a brilliant contrast to the sickening blood-colour
of the Chinese Communist Revolution.  Each hero figure depicted
is carefully crafted, and has something to the whole image.

It reads (in English) "LIBERATE HONG KONG; 

The students are using distributed-Network system of organization, with no identifiable leaders. Not so much to outfox the Hong Kong Police but to confuse China's secret services. The Chinese fascists are adept at snatching political opponents and taking them into China for interrogation and imprisonment.  Recently the Revolutionary movement issued a Manifesto and declared a "Provisional Government" in Hong Kong. Of course they were not taken seriously because they do not possess a single firearm. As MAO so famously declared in 1968, "Political power grows out of barrel of a gun."  Nevertheless, the banner of the Hong Kong Revolutionary Front does fly all over the city, and one proud Hong Konger recently carried the Freedom Flag to the summit of Mount Fuji in Japan. This is his photograph. (above)

This photograph of protest posters, inspirational messages,
symbols and graffiti, was taken recently in Hong Kong.
If the PLA is unleashed and Hong Kong falls, the history
of protest will be totally erased.  If you care about Freedom
and you have a heart for these brave people, please search for,
collect and spread the glorious record of their Revolution. 

A subversive Graphic - the Hong Kong "MTR TEAR GAS MAP"

And finally, something very clever, made from the weapons used by police to suppress the will of the Hong Kong people.  James Pomfret shared this photo on his social media page. A creative protester has gathered the base cups of dozens of spent tear gas cartridges, and used them  to outline the open-umbrella symbol of the "2014 Umbrella Revolution".  The handle of the umbrella is fashioned from four larger Federal-type gas cartridges.  A rather excellent sidewalk statement.

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

(H.K.) Lady Liberty

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.

Lady Liberty guards Hong Kong - October 2019

UPDATE -  9AM  Oct. 14, 2019

That didn't take long. Lady Liberty has already been assaulted and symbolically killed. 
A can of red spray-paint was used to inflict symbolic gashes,  including a slower, heavier 'cut' to her crotch. But at least she wasn't beheaded.  The was the work of a red "Ripper" and not a Muslim head-chopper.   Note also that the destruction was not thorough.  This guy was in a rage but he was also unsure of his footing and afraid of falling off Lion Rock.

Lady Liberty already vandalized in Hong Kong

HONG KONG RESISTANCE - student heroism has been unprecedented.

HK Cops arrest a pair of students disobeying the "No Mask" Ordinance
HK police wear balaclavas for the same reason Canadian police 
snipers and SWAT team members conceal identity. If they murder
or maim innocent civilians, it makes it harder to prosecute them.

This morning  I encountered this incredible photograph. (above) I was searching for news about the imposition, on October 6, 2019,  of the no-mask ordinance in Hong Kong and BAM! ... I found this shot of two bare-legged Hong Kong students being taken down by a trio of Hong Kong cops.  

The cops are wearing full-facial balaclavas, helmets and armour. They deploy with pistols, batons, and chemical agents in spray canisters. The students wear T-shirts and shorts, and they offend law enforcement by wearing surgical masks with elastic bands around the ears.  In a totalitarian jurisdiction it doesn't take much to piss off the demons!

I enlarged the arrest photo to full-screen and let it impress me all day.  My wife, who is Taiwan-Chinese, got upset and insisted on showing me "the other side of the story", video clips of HK policemen who were bloodied in one-on-one combat with rioters.  The news videos don't impress me as much as still photographs of kids standing their ground against oppression.  Some of the images of Hong Kong kids organizing themselves, and demonstrating for basic freedoms, are so damn humbling that I am embarrassed to be a mere bystander.

HK police constantly conceal their identity with "panty-masks"
In this photo we see Hong Kong police in "panty-masks".
This is to hide their identity. Masks are used to disrupt the 
efforts of citizen journalists and public evidence gathering.

Hong Kong schoolgirls defy Lam's anti-mask law

I clipped this a few hours ago.
In defiance of the H.K. government ban on demonstrators wearing any kind of masks, high school students formed human chains around their schools, and every student wore a light, disposable mask.
These kids have been witness to terrifying violence for weeks, and yet they are prepared to make this gutsy stand in front of their schools. And their teachers are being coerced into informing on them, no doubt under threat of losing their government employment. (See the clipping that follows.) 

Hong Kong highschool students form human-chain around their school

 And here are a couple of student spokesmen in Hong Kong today. 
"We must protect our home despite our limited strength."  Their parents will be frightened for them, but also extremely proud. No doubt of that.

RTHK interviews masked students who defy  "no mask" ordinance in Hong Kong
The Fascists in Beijing are "mad-as-bastards" that a million or more unarmed civilians in Hong Kong continue to defy them.   Most Canadians don't know that when China was still Communist it fomented revolutions and insurrections all over the globe. In Hong Kong, back in 1967, Red provocateurs  orchestrated a far more violent uprising than we have been witnessing in 2019. Reds terrorized the old British colony by planting thousands of bombs, most of which police and army sappers managed to defuse.  Still, 51 people were killed between May - August 1967.  The rulers of China remember what they did, but they demand we "foreigners" feign amnesia.

Extremely mouthy Beijing propagandists label the 2019 protesters "terrorists" and demand that foreign news media also use their mush-mouth jargon.  Let me instead quote directly from the PEKING REVIEW of  July 28, 1967.  The PEKING REVIEW was an official organ of the Chinese Communist Party.

"An old Chinese saying goes, it is discourteous not to give tit-for-tat. The Chinese people must reply with fitting counter-blows to British imperialist provocations."  It sounds 'made-up' to me, but lets play along and believe the Communist functionary.  Might I then suggest, that if HK Police or even PLA infantrymen beat on these wonderful kids, many tens of thousands of Dads and Uncles are sure to demand "tit-for-tat".  Just as a 'courtesy', mind you.
