” A freedom fighter learns hard way that it is the oppressor who defines the nature of the struggles and the oppressed is often left no recourse but to use methods that mirror those of the oppressor. At a certain point, they can only fight fire with fire” – Nelson Mandela
That is something which really touched my nerve when I read Long Walk To Freedom. The Umbrella Revolution reminds me of that quote.
As a Hong Konger, I am so proud of being involved in this “Revolution”. We fight for “Real Democracy” through demanding for “Real Universal Suffrage”. Several months ago, when discussing with my friends, I commented that Occupying Central would hardly happen. I underestimated it. There are a lot of things to be blamed, mourned for – unreasonably high housing prices, barbarian Chinese conquering HK…… People later on believe that selecting our own Chief Executive will be the only solution. Well, isn’t it?
Even we have a new CE selected by local people, what’s next? We still do not solve the fundamental problem – We Lack The VISION. WE NEED SOME GROUPS, LEADERS LEADING HK TO NEXT LEVEL, NOT JUST UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE.
Tearing HK people apart is not the correct direction. We need to be together and have same direction. That’s the right approach.
I am so afraid that we are repeating the history – 4th of June, 1989. That’s exactly the same. WE NEED PEACE AND LOVE IN HK.
