Power to the people: Hong Kong protesters hold ‘first civil press conference’


We are Hong Kong citizens
from different positions of the movement. We are here today, this
is the first civil press conference of Hong Kong, by the
people, for the people. The chief execute of the HKSAR,
Mrs Carrie Lam, announced on 5th August, that a press
conference would be held on a daily basis, by the
police force. In response, a group of Hong
Kong citizens have initiated a citizens press
conference to bring the people’s unheard voice to
the public and to highlight the repeated condemnation
and empty rhetoric presented by the HKSAR government. Some members of the public
are saddened and discontent by the officials’ distortion of the
facts, defamation of the protestors and clear ignorance of the
culprits, which has led to the series of recent events. We are extremely saddened
by the police force’s use of excessive violence against
the protestors and intentional assault to civilians. We hereby, again, urge the HKSAR
government to investigate the abuse of power by some
members of the police force and in particular, it’s response
to the attack on civilians by suspected triads in Yuen Long
on 21st June.

    I suggest protesters use a firecracker play with police.

    Purge the CCP and prosecute all its high ranking criminals. This is the only true way the region and the world can move forward.

    You have lost credibility with all the videos showing the violent nature of the protests . All the unneccessary disruption of MTR , roads and airports serve what purpose if not to inconvenience fellow HKers?

    Would you hire any of these freedom fighters to work for you in your company? 1 day they will gang up with others to create similar havoc in your companies too.

    You are so peaceful in your mind but your actions and demonstrations contradictory. Criminal always wear mask. Back color stands for evil. So why you choose that to represent your cause?

    No Movement will win peoples' sympathy if it turns violent, damage businesses and inconvenient the public. Worse still, the protesters framed the Police for brutality when they destroyed Gov buildings and properties, stopped MTR and blocked the Harbour Tunnel. Shame for the Civil Servants and Air Traffic Controllers who cannot see through these.

    Why they want to cover up. I thought they are very proud to fight for HK ppl (or destroying their own HK people).
    They are the one who is violent

    I'm truly saddened by the pro-China commenters here. It's a shame people don't stand for basic freedoms and self-determination.

    I like to give insider and spy information. Freedom fighter Kids be careful with Undercover police dressing black. They are planning Purge attacks on Mainlander civilians and protestors behind. They are looking mainlanders to blame freedom fighters; so, garrison can launch advance attack.

    Beatup undercover police quisiling whatever you can.

    Kudos for your courage! Keep standing for democracy! These are not scripted by the US. These are sincere Hong Kong citizens asserting their rights.

    You are anarchist and rioters. Your demands would not be entertained. You will be hunted down and shot by the CCP.

    Funny to see so many below 'concern' about riots and violence in HK when Brexit is only less than 3 months away and they don't have a clue what is happening.

    The HK people are being screwed by their govt, which has misused their power to benefit Beijing.

    In the HK scenario, the HK people have been ordered by their govt since 1997 to accept XYZ state of affairs and shut up. How can this be acceptable?

    Who wants to live in a gilded cage? You want to be like the puppet Emperor of old China who had to obey Prime Minister Cao Cao's every word? I don't want! I would rather live a poor but free man on my calloused feet than live a rich man on my Prada padded knees. HK forever!

    They do not represent the other millions of Hong Kong Chinese people!! Stopping the infrastructure of transportation and making Hong Kong into a danger tourist place don’t help small businesses that depends on the trade!!!

    I don't know which country's peace marchers wear masks and shields. This is obviously a terrorist act. Only terrorists wear masks, and people don’t know who they are!
    我不知道哪个国家的和平游行者戴口罩和盾牌。 这显然是一种恐怖主义行为。 只有恐怖分子戴口罩,人们不知道他们是谁!

    You are representing terrorist! Now you guys can make bombs and weapon. Threaten civilians, beat up innocent people, destroy properties, take over trains, bully the old and weak, damage public facilities. Protesters are wasting taxpayer money! In a few days time they will be able to bomb and kill civilians.

    Hah you rioters don't represent HK. Constructive criticism of the establishment welcome, but not violence and destruction (the existence of which is undeniable for any rational person)!
