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.

    Sakurai: There it is, the standard question.
    Ninomiya: We've answered this around 10 million times now.
    Matsumoto: Not marriage but going out? (unexpectedly begins to consider this seriously)
    Ninomiya: Isn't it about time we added this topic to our profiles?
    Matsumoto: Monday would be with Aiba-kun, I think. We'll watch Arashi no Shukudai-kun together.
    Aiba: Ohh! There it is!
    Sakurai: That would definitely be fun.
    Matsumoto: Tuesday would be fishing with Leader.
    Ohno: I'll bring you with me~ ♥
    Matsumoto: Wednesday would be Nino. We'll go drinking together and he can show me magic tricks.
    Ninomiya: Ahh~ that's good, let's do it.
    Matsumoto: Then, I'll rest on Thursday.
    Sakurai: Ah, you're resting? What about me...?
    Matsumoto: (ignores) I'll watch Himitsu no Arashi-chan by myself, I think.
    Aiba: Time alone to yourself is important too.
    Ninomiya: Friday would be appearing on Mste (Music Station) with our new song~
    Matsumoto: Saturday I'll be going out all night~
    Sakurai: And then when you wake up the next morning, you'd be with Sakurai~
    Matsumoto: (ignores) Sunday would be sleeping in and waking up to watch a recording of VS Arashi from the day before. There!
    Sakurai: Then, Monday would be watching News Zero with Sakurai-kun. There!
    Aiba: No, Monday would be me again.
    Sakurai: Then, even once a month or something would be fine, wouldn't someone go out with me too? Like the third Thursday of each month or something.
    --- You wouldn't stick to one person?
    Matsumoto: Nah~ everyone's cool.
    Everyone: (explodes in laughter)
    Matsumoto: I can't choose (laugh)
    Aiba: That's a given.
    Matsumoto: They're all good guys.
    Ninomiya: Even if I did a simulation too, everything would be the same right down to the weekdays.
    Sakurai: Even down to me making an appearance once a month... (tear)
