National Education Centre Asks Schools for Endorsement

Following on my previous post about National and Moral Education Curriculum, despite the fact that the Curriculum is quietly embedded in various subjects, the National Education Centre continues to work on establishing a new subject for students in Hong Kong in order to further brainwash children.

SupportNationalEducationAbove picture obtained from House News, for original article in Cantonese/Chinese, please refer to here.

The National Education Centre issued letters to all schools in Hong Kong, which provides a simple letter that says:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Since the National Education Centre always strives to promote national education and national quality education, I am happy to support the Centre to continue servicing the education sector and its continuous operation.

Best regards,

____________

Cheung Yui-Fai, a liberal studies teacher, posted the letter onto the Facebook page of National Education Parents’ Concern Group. As a committee member of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union, Cheung questioned the agenda behind the Centre’s letter – does this mean the biased National Education Curriculum is returning in full form (base on the “coincident” of the HKSAR government’s mentioned National Education in its Human Rights report which was submitted to the United Nation recently).

Cheung also added that the Centre has not done anything ever since the people won the “war” which forced the HKSAR government to “shelved” the curriculum.

On the second page of the letter issued by the Centre, a survey asked the schools if they have participate any of the activities organised by the Centre and what recommendations they have for the activities.

In the Human Rights report submitted to the United Nation, Chapter 2.21, says “This new initiative is expected to be implemented in the 2013/14 school year to further enhance the elements of national education”, and completely omitted the fact that the HKSAR government has announced the curriculum is shelved in September 2012.

Follow up on Beijing Woman Slams Hong Kong Movie “Vulgaria”

Please refer to my last post Beijing Woman Slams Hong Kong Movie “Vulgaria” to get an understanding of this news.

After investigations, the netizens and media found out a bit more about this prize winner. Jia XuanNing wrote another “critic piece” on a China produced movie “Lost in Thailand (泰囧)” which was openly accused by the Thailand government for insulting Thai people. Ms. Jia praised this movie in her critic and said that “(the movie) brings popular fun to the pre-Lunar New Year dullness in China”. The movie itself, according to sources and Thai people, blatantly smears the Thai. Ms. Jia’s critic piece is available in Simplified Chinese here.

Columnists today, in response to this new “discovery”, wrote a fair few pieces (example 1 and 2). In short, they think that Ms. Jia is “double standard” and “is a typical China Communist party member – who defends China and Chinese blindly even though they are in the wrong”.

According to netizens, in a nut shell, the mentality of China Communists is: people outside of China (that is the rest of the world including Hong Kong) who portrait the negatives of Chinese and China are discriminating Chinese because they envy China’s wealth, but Chinese can do whatever they like (mocking other races, calling Caucasians names despite faking a smile in front of them, etc) and Chinese people would glorify their acts and use propaganda to influence (some call it “brainwash”) other Chinese people; and the outsiders (including Hong Kongers) is wrong about doing a certain thing, but it’s perfectly ok for Chinese to do the same thing.

In Ms. Jia’s critic piece on “Lost in Thailand” she said the complete opposite of what she wrote in the critic about the HK movie Vulgaria:

China produced comedy may create a new style of “Lunar New Year movie”, to demonstrate a stronger local character (of China) to the world.

In her critic on Vulgaria (the HK produced movie that targets HK locals), Ms. Jia said that the sarcasm of Chinese in Vulgaria is discriminating Chinese (Ms. Jia is accused to have selectively ignored the fact that the movie makes fun of local Hong Kongers most of the time).

A few columnists said that Ms. Jia is only a higher paid “50 cents” (she won HK$50,000 for what she wrote about Vulgaria). Newspapers also reported today that Ms. Jia is closely related to the judge panel of this prize, which is supported by the HKSAR government (that is tax payers are funding it). Some said that this is only a little step of China’s influence and propaganda to brainwash and “correct” Hong Kongers’ feelings against Chinese.

 

Hong Kong is still a Colony

Hong Kong is still a colony

This video was first uploaded on Youtube few weeks ago in Cantonese. English subtitle version is now available to help the fellow Hong Kongers who don’t speak Cantonese and the rest of the world understand what’s the CCP government doing to Hong Kong.

This bloke in the video is quite famous to netizens in Hog Kong. He’s famous for mocking the CCP-HKSAR government and producing clips that take the mickey out of politicians and has never been seen serious in front of camera.

Latest on Baby Forumla Powder Shortage

Since the CCP-HKSAR government continues to fail to tackle the formula powder smuggling problem in Hong Kong, Netizens are taking the issues into their own hands!

Below are new

A petition has been created and some are considering to send the below new poster created by a famour Netizen to the United Nations.

This problem could be easily resolved by the government should it be determined and pledged to serve its people – the CCP-HKSAR Government is only loyal to the China Government, meaning whatever order they give the CCP-HKSAR government will execute. There are at least three options provided by commentators, all of them are legal, practical and reasonable, including imposing formula powder export tax, amending Importation and Exportation Ordinance, and listing formula powder under the Reserved Commodities Ordinance.

The HKSAR government does not have the gut to do any of the above measures because (I dare say) they cannot stop Chinese from coming to Hong Kong nor discourage them – because that sabotage China’s master plan to colonise and erase the Hong Kong race, by then Hong Kong will truly be part of China – Hong Kong City of Guangdong (Canton) Province of the People’s Republic of China. Hong Kong will be erased from the history. A master plan that will require a lot more explanation.

Bear in mind the fact that they’ve done it in the past and still doing in Tibet…

Chinese Causes Global Milk Powder Shortage – 2

Since the previous blog post, the HKSAR government (aka, the CCP-HKSAR government) has proposed a new “policy” which is a glorified rationed system: Hong Kong mothers can join “Mother’s Clubs” in Hong Kong which are profit making organisations set up by baby milk powder manufacturers to secure guaranteed supply of three tins every two weeks.

I am most against this “policy”. What this “policy” suggests is that Hong Kong people have to allow Chinese to raid every shop in Hong Kong for formula powder. Many countries who face threats from the Chinese are imposing quota for individuals who purchase formula powder from shops.

Below is a world map of the footprint of Chinese raids for formula powder:

A few things we need to know before we can understand Chinese’s global raid:

First of all, there is an import tax on formula powder in China, ranging from 15% to 20%. In Hong Kong, there is no import tax imposed on baby milk powder.Those who buy in bulk in Hong Kong smuggled those formula powder across the border to China, a clear tax evasion situation. Market rumours (I think no one will doubt it’s in fact the truth) say that China’s customs received bribe from those smuggler groups (RMB10 per each person each time they cross the border with smuggled goods) so that they will not arrest nor prosecute smugglers.

Given that Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the US dollar, Hong Kong dollar is weaker than China’s RMB. Given the general public’s concern over locally produced or imported milk powder through distributors (Chinese think that any imported products that are packaged in China are unsafe), there is a huge demand for formula powder for infants in China.

This sets the background – Chinese have to go overseas (including Hong Kong) to buy safe milk powder to supply the 1.3 billion population’s demand.

How is a country as small as Hong Kong have sufficient supply for a country (China) which is millions times bigger than herself? Why is it Hong Kong’s responsibility to support China’s demand for a type of product that cannot be replaced?

Some argued that if Americans or Germans or people from any other countries would come to raid Hong Kong’s electronic appliances, Hong Kongers would not against it because they are free trade and helps the economy. This is a completely insane metaphor:

  • Baby formula powder = necessity; Electronic appliances = luxury products (involving the elasticity of demand)
  • Hong Kong’s size and supply of milk powder VS China’s size and demand for milk powder
  • Chinese who come to Hong Kong (or any part of the world) do not just purchase a small amount, they buy in absolute bulk
  • Being inconsiderate and selfish, Chinese do not care about if the local babies will suffer. All they care about is: having abundant supply for their own babies and making money from this trade


All of these are fomula powder!

The attitude of Chinese provokes Hong Kongers further, making one can’t help but think: You’re taking advantage of Hong Kong, distorting Hong Kong’s economy and destroying people’s livelihood, yet still claim to be doing good for the Hong Kongers?

A Facebook page posted the below recently about a message posted by a Chinese on Weibo (a China version of Twitter as Twitter isn’t allowed in China because of the censorship) – I’m keeping the Simplified Chinese characters here even though I (and many Hong Kongers) despise this broken language created by the Communists, I will try to write something about this in the near future.

Please note that this is not an isolated case, many people are bragging about their victory in raiding Hong Kong’s formula powder and mocking Hong Kongers as slaves and secondary citizens. Some even said “when the time comes, I will invade Hong Kong armed and kill every traitor and British-running-dog (i.e. Hong Kongers) I spot, so to make sure Hong Kong is part of China for good”:

From Hong Kong & China NOT the SAME 中港大不同

Once again, Mainland Chinese is showing off the milk powder and says this is a GREAT success of the socialism has “defeated” capitalism. They are happy because Hong Kong Mothers couldn’t get the milk powder for Hong Kong babies and they are delighted for Hong Kong government is being controlled by the CCP, so that they can take as much as they want.
THIS IS AN INVASION. Stop telling us to be kind and ‘you have to help to poor’ – We have 1 million “poor” HongKongese and those PRChinese who come to take everything, even stay here, they are NOT that poor. Yet they are trying their best to ruin the city.
WE ARE HONGKONGESE, NOT CHINESE.「我们雄壮的社会主义大军硬是把资本主义的香港活活的从商品经济逼退回计划经济,国人威武啊!给力奶粉今天到货啦!何其壮观啊!看着房间的奶粉墙相当满足!」

Wan Chin, a scholar in Hong Kong, who’s the thought leader of city-state autonomy for Hong Kong commented on the issue about CCP-HKSAR government’s new policy.

Ration, is an extremely measure that responsible government would implement during war time in order to ensure that its people have sufficient daily supply, including food.

Imposing this system in Hong Kong but not controlling the invasion from China is rather putting the cart before the horse!

To protect Hong Kong and Hong Kongers, we must go independent!

Stay tune for more about Hong Kong.

Freedoms erode – a blatant violation of the Basic Law and Sino-British Joint Declaration

In light of recent rapid decline in freedoms in Hong Kong, the people of Hong Kong must not stand and watch Hong Kong burn. That’s why Hong Kongers took it to the street and the demonstration on 1st January 2013 opened a new chapter of Hong Kong’s continuous battle for freedom and universal suffrage.

I believe that every human being is born free. Before I go into the details of the demonstration, it’s important for me to talk about how freedoms in Hong Kong erode after the handover of sovereignty in 1997.

In the Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law stated clearly that Hong Kongers’ freedoms are protected:

Sino-British Joint Declaration

(5) The current social and economic systems in Hong Kong will remain unchanged, and so will the life-style. Rights and freedoms, including those of the person, of speech, of the press, of assembly, of association, of travel, of movement, of correspondence, of strike, of choice of occupation, of academic research and of religious belief will be ensured by law in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Private property, ownership of enterprises, legitimate right of inheritance and foreign investment will be protected by law.

The Basic Law

Article 27
Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of speech, of the press and of publication; freedom of association, of assembly, of procession and of demonstration; and the right and freedom to form and join trade unions, and to strike.

Article 28
The freedom of the person of Hong Kong residents shall be inviolable.

No Hong Kong resident shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful arrest, detention or imprisonment. Arbitrary or unlawful search of the body of any resident or deprivation or restriction of the freedom of the person shall be prohibited. Torture of any resident or arbitrary or unlawful deprivation of the life of any resident shall be prohibited.

The truth is, the freedoms we enjoy in Hong Kong is gradually being taken away. Not ripped from us all at the same time, but bit by bit…

News reports (over the past years) are clear evidence of these. A few recent news reports are used below to outline what’s been going on in Hong Kong. You’d notice that only one publication is quoted – this is another evidence of the self-censorship amongst the Hong Kong media. Note: some other publications follow up with these reports, and a number of them are relatively unbiased whilst some completely ignore any of the above and continue supporting the Hong Kong SAR government and the China government.

Apple Daily (8th Jan, 2013) “Limiting access to records of registered companies, stops media from investigating and confirming identities – harms public interest”

Investigative journalism is important to a free nation, where people are informed the stories that matter to their livelihood.

Apple Daily (1st Aug, 2012) – Mr Paul CHAN Mo-po, Secretary for Development, was found to own sub-division flats under a company (sub-division flats are illegal in Hong Kong). In light of this scandal, the government stopped the public, including journalists, from obtaining drivers’ identity via going through records of licence plate number. (Mr. CHAN, who’s also recorded in camera for drink driving, is free from any prosecution and charges Apple Daily (4th Oct, 2012))

Apple Daily (13th Dec 2012) – End of 2012, Apple Daily also exposed a massive scandal about “ditch oil” (basically “processed” used oil that’s dumped by restaurants (some even “collect” it from the drains, hence the name), it’s proven to be cancer causing and China has been producing and selling within China for years). The story revealed that a China company has been selling ditch oil to at least one Hong Kong distributor and many restaurant chains have been using such oil. This China company is owned by a State-Owned-Enterprise, which emerged in recent years and already became one of the largest (cooking) oil companies in the PRC.

When the newspaper further investigated the matter in China, the journalists were taken to the police in China and threatened they will not be welcome to China if they report the story. One of the China journalists who first uncovered the ditch oil in the first place was found dead with multiple stab wounds soon after the news was published. The ditch oil business is believed to be owned by the powerful.

Censorship in Hong Kong is not done by the government nor in the form of active involvement. With the number of newspaper in Hong Kong, only one or maybe two would report government’s inadequacy or scandals related to local government officials as well as the government in China.

I’ll follow with another piece about the 1st Jan 2013 demonstration, and media in Hong Kong once again were clearly categorised into two groups: pro-China (the majority) and pro-democracy (minority).

Please leave your comments.

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?
