14 Pictures From Immense Protests In Hong Kong Illustrates Discipline And Respect

The City of Hong Kong was recently rocked by an immense protest following a controversial extradition bill that allows a suspect to be taken back to Mainland China for interrogation.  The extradition bill has now re-opened grievances and old injuries.

Initially, the former British Colony which was handed over to Chinese rule in 1997 had tolerated an unfriendly relationship with the Mainland while also attempting to maintain its special status of a ‘One Country, Two Systems’ Consensus.

Now an attempt by the Chinese Communist Party to further impose its decision on its citizen has now resulted in a protest and civil disobedience. An estimated 2 million people representing about 25% of the population have taken part in this protest and they are appealing that both the local government as well as the Beijing Government revisit their decision.

The protest, which had no occurrence of violence and wild actions depicted that Hong Kongers handle the protest differently. They displayed discipline, respect, and unity for the city and this is an expression of peaceful people at its best. It is, however, an action other nations can learn from when trying to fight repressive policies proposed by top officials in government.

Specifically, their fear about the bill is that authorities will be able to target political contenders and criticizers and the conviction rates are extremely high in mainland China, with denial of representation, torture, and arbitrary detention also rampant.
