Some people asked me why the public can't present their opinions in a peaceful way, and how all these turmoils would come to an end.
Instead of focusing on how these turmoils would end, maybe we should look back and see how all these started.
February 13, the Security Bureau launched public consultation on the Extradition Bill
March 4, the Hong Kong Bar Association announced its 'Observations of the Hong Kong Bar Association on the Security Bureau’s Proposal to Amend the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Ordinance, Cap. 525 and the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, Cap. 503', stating its opposition to the Bill.
March 19, The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce released the statement on 'Extradition Proposals Require Clearly-defined Framework; Changes Should Not Be Rushed'
April 2, the bill was proceeded to LegCo. The Hk Bar Assn. released 'Observations of the Hong Kong Bar Association on the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal and Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019'
April 3, the First Reading of the Bill was conducted in LegCo due to the support from the pro-Beijing legislators, despite general public outcry.
April 28, protest march with 130,000 participants
May 28, petitions by education and religion sectors.
June 6, protest march by law sector.
June 9, protest march with 1 million participants.
June 16, protest march with 2 million participants.
The government ignored any opposition, and rejected withdrawal of the Bill.
之後的故事，就在 150 枚催淚彈的響聲中揭開序幕。
What follows comes after the 150+ shots of tear gas.
Those who protest against the Bill are not only youngsters, but also the well educated from business and law sectors.
You claim to be ignorant of the problems arising from the Extradition Bill.
You claim to be uninformed of the 'rule of law', and you choose not to believe in views of the law professionals.
You claim to know little about the business world, but not trust the leading organisations of the business field.
You accuse the protesters of their having been incited with money benefits by foreign influences, in an attempt to overthrow the Beijing regime.
The city is dying, when its 'rule of law' and economy are being destroyed.
The general public have expressed their opinions and views in a peaceful manner, but you opt not to listen. So what else can the general public do?
And this is how all have started.
Can you tell me how all these would end?
When will the government respond to all the citizens, and tackle the problem, instead of dealing with those who raise their concerns?
