Beijing blocks free Hong Kong elections – The Vancouver Sun Reports

By Jonathan Manthorpe, Vancouver Sun

The Chinese government has made it clear it has no intention of living up to its promise to allow voters among Hong Kong’s 7.1 million people to freely elect their government leader.

Beijing has repeatedly put off the democratic reforms it promised 30 years ago during negotiations before the 1997 return of Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty after 155 years of British rule.

China’s stalling and its heavy-handed dealings with Hong Kong have sparked repeated peaceful demonstrations in Hong Kong since the handover.

But Beijing’s latest announcement that it will keep a veto over whatever Hong Kong voters decide has heightened demands for universal suffrage.

 

This is the first news article in the Western world that reports the situation without being biased. Clear evidence of China breaches the Sino-British Joint-Declaration by blocking a fair and free election in Hong Kong repeatedly (the so called political reformed in 2012 did not provide Hong Kong a more democratic election).

Hong Kong People Demand Referendum

Facebook has been the most important tool for many people movements and activists.

In a couple of months ago, over 120,000 Hong Kong people went on the street to protest against the Moral and National Education Curriculum. Hong Kong’s activities are using Facebook to call for actions and gather people who share the same or similar ideas.

Long See, is one of the famous ones on Facebook because of the pictures and graphics he/she produces on a regular (if not daily) basis. Today, Long See posted a new one:

1-Country-2-System is Destroyed
Joint Declaration is Lapsed
High degree of autonomy is Gone
We Demand Independence Referendum in HK

Looks like there are more and more people becoming painful away of the fact that the PRC government’s master plan on colonising Hong Kong. There are numerous evidences that point to this conclusion.

Again, something that I want to write more about – things just emerge so quickly and so frequently that I find it hard to keep up with. Please bear with me, I’ll do my best…

Stay tune to more articles about why many think that Hong Kong is dying (not those who live outside of HK), why it should be saved and who (in my point of view) should be responsible for foreseeable death of HK hence must help to Free Hong Kong!
