Do Not Cross
This was my last time joining a protest on the street. Every corner has riot police.
Bricks Will Be Back Soon
When riot police came, we would welcome them with bricks. Beneath the pavement, freedom.
An Illusion of Peace
Brick pavements were dug up as weapons or barricades against the police. The government simply covered the holes with cement and pretended nothing happened. But the holes in my mind will stay for the whole life.
Someone wanted to tear down the truth, but the truth is hard to be teared down — that the politicians are LIARs and Hong Kong wants True Universal Suffrage.
Graffiti “If you give up, who will defend our city?“
11 Feb 2023
Some choose to stay silence these days, some choose to move away. I have also once thought of giving up when all actions seem to be futile. But when many are still in jails, who am I to give up?
Not Everything is Gone
The government calls it “vandalism“, we call it “renovation“ (our codeword for direct action). We would spray over every CCTV so the authorities cannot identify us. These days, they try to make everything “nice“ again but fail.
2019 – now
We only support pro-democracy shops, which we called “Yellow shops”. Before I eat somewhere, I will check its “colour” first. If it is a “Blue shop” (pro-government shops), I won’t eat there.
The Lennon Walls
June 2019 – 2020
On these walls everyone write down their hopes, wishes and anger on colourful memos. This was the most beautiful Hong Kong I have ever seen.
Our Flag – Liberate Hong Kong, Revolution of our Times
This was one of the last time I have seen this flag on the street. Nobody wants to be caught by the National Security Law these days.
