Occupy Central Hong Kong: leave a message on their wall

A massive projector has been set up at Occupy Central Hong Kong.

They have a system whereby you can submit messages to be projected on their actual wall (not a FB thing).

Looks a bit like this (actual size).

Hong Kong protest from the air

 

 

 

This should give you an idea of the scale of the protest.

The footage is from a drone owned by a protester.

*There is no audio (sound) so don’t bother turning up the volume.

Occupy Central Hong Kong

struggle for democracy

Some things never change, always have a good shield.

Occupy Central Hong Kong

In response to China’s planned erosion of democratic electoral process in the SAR of Hong Kong  (China proposing to only allow their approved candidates to stand for election), an occupation has begun.

The people republic of China has always held democratic reforms as being dangerous and unpalatable and to this day many Chinese residents are completely unaware of  the Tienanmen square pro democracy protest from 1989 and the gruesome way in which it ended.

Many of the protesters have taken to wearing eye protection with some using a improvised saran wrap (AKA cling film/ glad wrap) as a ‘better than nothing’ protection from presumably noxious gasses that may be released by authorities to break up the protest.

Thousands take to the street in Hong Kong in protest of Chinese government wanting to reduce democratic freedoms.

Wikileaks Oz-SEA corruption coverup exposed

Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.

In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.

What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.

 

From wikileaks.org  press release:

Australia-wide censorship order for corruption case involving Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam
WikiLeaks release: July 29, 2014
Blanket censorship order preventing reporting on Australia’s largest financial corruption case and any derived allegations against the current and former heads of state of Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam and other senior officials.
The document also specifically bans publication of the order itself and the June 2014 affidavit of Australia’s newly appointed representative to the UN, Gillian Bird. The order was granted under “national security” grounds in order to “prevent damage to Australia’s international relations”. The order was issued following the indictment of seven senior executives related to the Reserve Bank of Australia. The case concerns allegations of multi-million-dollar payments to persons with high-level political connections in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia in order to secure contracts for the production of Australian plastic currency banknotes for these countries.

Joko (Jokowi) Widodo

 

Joko widodo peace sign nixonesque

Just to the North of Australia lies a series of islands known as Indonesia, known to Australians as a place of booze and drug filled ‘spring break’ style getaways, and one of the worst places to get on the wrong side of the law.

Having Just had it’s election for president, only the second time a democratic election for the office was announced, for the very first time a non-elite candidate was run and apparently won with 53% of the vote.

A political new comer to the national political scene Joko Widodo (Jokowi) cut his teeth as Governor of Jakarta and previously as Mayor of Solo.

Some commentators as saying he is too close to the much more experienced and politically connected former President  Megawati Sukanoputri, and may be unduly influenced by her and her circle.

His presidential  election opponent Probowo Subianto ( a more typical Indonesian military strong man president archetype)  has called for a recount in a largely symbolic (and slightly sour grapes) move, though the result is unlikely to change.

Joko Widodo made his fortune in the furniture export business, and had flagged infrastructure and heath as major areas for improvement for Indonesia’s 240 Million People.

 

Significance?

240 Million people on your doorstep have a new political direction.

48 million of them didn’t eat enough today either.
