Earlier this month I wrote here about Hong Kong’s ‘Freedom Revolution’ — On the 11 November, I wrote here that Obama assured China regime President Xi Jinping, that the White House had no involvement in promoting Freedom and Democracy in Hong Kong.
“We have the right to have these things. We have the right to have Democracy –true Democracy and universal suffrage because this is a human right,” said Activist Glacier Kwong.
“What we need is international public opinion to keep watch on China so that they leave Hong Kong alone,” said Lee Cheuk-Yan, an activist arrested during Tiananmen Square protests adding, “We in Hong Kong we have nothing. We don’t have arms, we don’t have anything to protect ourselves. We have just the people.”
