🇭🇰“Be Water” is a slogan widespread in the Hong Kong anti-extradition protests over the 11 month, spoken by the well known martial arts star, Bruce Lee in television series Longstreet. .
💧Protesters have adopted the philosophy of water to the strategical spirits of the protest: adapting quickly to circumstances, cutting losses, being mobile and agile, and creatively coming up with different forms of public civil resistance. Taking the elemental spirit a notch further, they urge each other to be “strong like ice, flow like water, gather like dew, and disperse like fog.” Things haven’t gone better even though the extradition bill was withdrawn in Oct 2019. The draft decision to establish “National People's Congress Decision on Hong Kong national security legislation” was suddenly proposed by the Hong Kong government in May 2020. This act has threatened a lot of Hong Kongers that the “One Country Two Systems” and freedom of speech in Hong Kong will be violated. Therefore, a strike is taking place in Hong Kong on 27 May in response to China’s plan to adopt a new national security law.
Be water, my friends 🖤🇭🇰 #527
