China FA: HK Footballer is a Foreigner

One interesting news in today’s Apple Daily (19/July):

Yapp Hung Fai is the goalie of Hong Kong’s First Division League club South China. Guizhou Renhe Football Club, a China Super League club, offered Yapp a 5 years contract and he’s supposed to join the club end of June.

There are some recent personnel changes in the China Football Association and quoted some sort of regulations that say China football teams cannot hire goalkeepers from Hong Kong and Macau, and refused to allow Yapp, a “foreign nationality” to join Guizhou Renhe.

So, even China comes out to admit that they don’t see Hong Kongers as its own people! This makes me smile – they keep banging on about how “blood is thicker than water” when there are earthquakes or floods, they keep banging on about Hong Kongers should tolerate their barbarian behaviours (defecating in the middle of the street and on the train, for example) because “Hong Kongers are Chinese too”.

Hong Kongers ARE NOT China citizens. For those who own HKSAR passport, you are free to travel to China, but you’ll never be a citizen of China, that is, you can’t get a China passport. So much of “one big family”! What a load of crap.

If you trust the Chinese (again, Chinese in China, not referring to ethnicity), it will cost you!

Over and out

Leaders of the PRC (China)

Pro-democracy, pro-HK-Independence and anti-CCP Facebook groups have been circulating an image in recent days – direct quotes from Premier Wen JiaBao’s government work report. Below is a translation of the caption:

43 Rounds of Applause 5 Years Ago…

“(We can) definitely guarantee the basic stability of market supply and market price”

“Make our motherland’s mountains greener, water clearer, sky more blue”

“We must ensure that our people’s minds are at easy when they eat and use (products), and make our export products to enjoy good reputation”

“(We will allow) everyone to enjoy basic health care services”

“We must be determined to push forward (our) real estate reform and development, making people and the public to live in peace and enjoy one’s work (note: a Chinese saying which means a stable and secured life with a roof above one’s head)”

“Only through distributing the fruits of economic development to the public, the harmony and stability of a society can be improved”

Five years have passed, NONE of the above was achieved.

HK Primary School Material: Cannot Call Onself Hong Konger – HK Newspaper

After the massive anti National & Moral Education Curriculum that forced the Hong Kong SAR government to “shelved” the curriculum, Ming Pao reveals on 3rd March 2013 that Hong Kong schools are brain washing primary school kids via different text books.

Summary of the article below:

Although the National & Moral Education is not a standalone subject in Hong Kong anymore after the months long protest led by Scholarism (formulated by school children), a lot of content about “identifying one’s recognition of China” is penetrating various subject in primary school subjects, including Chinese language, general studies and Mandarin.

Parents’ Concerns Group reviewed the top three most popular sets of primary school text books in Hong Kong and found that some materials deliberately emphasis the “expression of emotions”. A chapter called “Metaphor of Motherland”, one of the primary 5 Chinese language chapters, included a “patriotic poem”. The teacher handbook of this chapter says that teachers should instruct students to “use sonorous tone to slowly read the poem aloud, when reading out the character ‘country’, the final note of of the character should be lengthen (note: in Cantonese, as well as other Chinese languages, this means a strong emphasis of a term/word) in order to show one’s admiration and respect to the country (i.e. China)”. Another chapter described China’s national flag as something “that will listen attentively (to students)”.

In a General Studies textbook for primary 1 to 5 students, when it described the established of People’s Republic of China (PRC), it only sketchily mentioned Mao Zidong, the Chairman of China’s Communist Party found the PRC which became strong after many years. It omitted all the tragedies happened in between, including the Cultural Revolution and 4th June incident (also known as “Tiananmen Square massacre”).

In a primary 2 English General Studies textbook, when it explains nationality, the teacher handbook listed clearly that students should NOT called themselves “Hong Kong People” (i.e. Hong Kongers/Hong Kongese): “Many children call themselves HK people but this is not a correct concept. One should say “I am a Chinese citizen living in HK (direct quote from the handbook)“. Concern Group questioned that the teacher handbook clearly pointed out that “HK people” is a politically incorrect concept, and deny the identify of Hong Konger.

The chairman of a teachers group focuses on Liberal Studies in HK said that the evaluation forms of many study tours that go to China (PRC) focus on how students’ perception of China (PRC) change after the tours, but do not cover students’ genuine impressions.

It’s not about this Chief Executive, it’s about the system – independence is the way to go

A number of independent groups of people began the discussion of the 1st January 2013 anti-CY-Leung-demonstration a couple of months ago, more and more people and groups join this discussion and it’s believed that a significant number of Hong Kong citizens will be going onto the street to demand the current Chief Executive of Hong Kong to step down. Some so-called politicians and parties joint and are currently trying to claim this protest. This is exactly why we should not rely on the politicians. They didn’t start this, they’ve been sitting back to watch how the people’s anger over the existing Hong Kong government unfolds. The politicians and some of the pan-democrats are either openly or secretly pro-Peking and neglects the well-beings and welfare of the people in Hong Kong. They didn’t want the current government to be overthrown, because without the angry and discontent of the general public, they will have no more bargaining chip to continue having a obscenely high-paid job. The preset objective of each rally organised by political parties in recent history is to “get people on the street and have a bit of shouting and then peacefully dismiss”.

Anyone would know, peaceful demonstration will not grant the people anything they ask for. The government knows and they understand the fundamental weakness of Hong Kongers – they all need to have a job to keep themselves and their families alive. A bowl of rice/ a loaf of bread is more important than freedom.

To me, the theme of the upcoming demonstration is useless. Even if CY Leung steps down, what’s going to happen? The Peking (Beijing) government will “elect” (hand pick) another person, with the title of “Chief Executive” to execute orders from them. Basically, the people calling this protest is barking up the wrong damn tree.

The key here is to completely abolish the existing system – One Country Two Systems where One Country sits above Two Systems, meaning the system Hong Kong had been working so hard to build and defend cannot be freely executed unless the China government agrees and allows. This is something recently has been spoken out in the public by a number of China government officials.

Separation of executive, legislative and judicial powers has long been the core value of Hong Kong, and allow each of these power to function effectively whilst none of them could enjoy the absolute power Not to mention there are ICAC and the Ombudsman to monitor all the government departments).

China government has been repeatedly violating the One Country Two System model (by interpreting Hong Kong Court’s judgement, directing the executive power in Hong Kong). There is no need to further reason why the so-called “System” is not fully implemented – it’s just a glorify term where no body respects, particularly China.

Time and time again, people said “we need to have universal suffrage”. It’s not going to happen as long as China is still has sovereignty over Hong Kong. How could a dictatorship allow some of its people to have freedom and democracy? It threatens the dictator and could potentially overthrown the dictatorship completely.

There are two solutions:

– China collapses and a new groups of countries to be formulated (Tibet, Mongolia, etc) – let’s face it, China is too big a country to be ruled by only a small group of people

– Hong Kong to go independent (does not mean trades and financial transactions with China cannot be carried out, no Chinese would say no to money)

I hope that on 1st January 2013, Hong Kong people will all be awakened and brave enough to call for independence. All revolution comes with a price, but no price is bigger than the loss of freedom, dignity and honour.

We must not give up. People laugh and say Hong Kong is too small, they say people rely on China on all aspects. If you read history and statistics, you’d know Hong Kong had been supporting China for many many years. All the food, water, and daily supplies were PAID for – all fair and square transactions (some are unfair, actually, for example, water – Hong Kong paid substantially more than others in China for water from the same source).

How did China’s companies get access to international capital? Through Hong Kong. How many of the listed China companies made a huge profit by going IPO (to capture a handsome amount of cash) and delist a few years later at a massively reduced price?

Who’s supporting? Who relying on the other?
