I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

PLEASE, LET MORE PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THIS.
I’m from Hong Kong, I love my city. She need help now.

blackcatwildfox:

Scout Willis, arguably one of the coolest chicks around, recently posted these photos on twitter after instagram deleted her account for breaking community guidelines even though men like Dan Bilzerian are totally free to objectify women’s bodies and don’t get any form of censorship whatsoever. Scout’s protest is more about the ability to post freely on istagram, its about fighting for the right for women to be able to have control over their bodies. Think about it, it’s 2014 and women are still shamed for breast feeding in public yet women are constantly objectified and sexualized in the media. #freethenipple

Tortoise Beetle - Botanochara impressa
The tortoise beetles (Coleoptera - Chrysomelidae - Cassidinae) are herbivorous insects with rounded body shape, in which the pronotum and elytra are flared or explanate, and have the head retracted into the pronotum. Their elytra are fully developed and completely cover the abdomen in dorsal aspect. Generally, the elytra are strongly sclerotized, heavy, and rigid.
Botanochara impressa (pictured) is a neotropical species native to South America (Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina). At first glance this species is striking for its color, and because the elytra are reticulated and punctured.
