It seems apparent that the people of Hong Kong haven’t given up their fight against the mainland authorities, as their fight continues in a very disparate way of going between a manual protest and a democratic protest of actually fighting the manipulative system.
The primary for the opposition party stark on going against the authorities in control as of status quo has started in a mass promulgation with the weather being not very helpful, as it was very hot and humid in Hong Kong.
The said vote was held 10 days after the mainland’s forceful imposing of the novel security law that was taken into place this week.
The pro-democracy and autonomous will was subdued immediately with the Sino-forces actually taking the side of the mainland opinion rather than their very own people.The opposition party has used this for its advantage as they aspire to take control of an unprecedented parliamentary majority in the upcoming election.
This would be a hard task at the best of times, and the government has already hinted that it may bar potentially dozens of candidates from those elections under the new security law, which criminalizes secession, subversion, terrorism, and collusion with foreign forces.
“Hong Kong people have made history again,” Benny Tai, one of the organizers, said after the polling ended on Sunday night.
“Hong Kong people have demonstrated to the world, and also to the authorities, that we have not given up to strive for democracy.
Erick Tsang, Hong Kong’s Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, said on Friday “Those who have organized, planned or participated in the primary election should avoid carelessly violating the law,” he said.
Late Friday night, police raided the offices of the Public Opinion Research Institute, a polling company that was helping to organize the primary.Organizers denounced the move as an attempt to disrupt the vote or intimidate people, while police said it was related to a tip about potential hacked data.
Speaking to the South China Morning Post, one woman said “Hong Kong will become just like the mainland one day. I did wonder whether it would be the last time I took part in such a primary,” Kitty Yau told the paper. “But I am not afraid of any ‘white terror’ as I am just exercising my rights.”
