Valentine's Day 2020: We Have Each Other

More on: https://t.me/guardiansofhongkong/17171

We have spent the latter half of 2019 shrouded in clouds of tear gas. We wear masks and even gas masks to show our defiance against the unelected government and the police state.

We have spent most days of 2020 in the midst of an omnipresent novel coronavirus. Ever since Lunar New Year up until Valentine's Day today, we still have to wear masks, even when we want to kiss our dearest ones.

Against all odds, the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong will live on and the people of Hong Kong will continue the battle against authoritarianiam.

While thinking of your loved ones, never forget the protesters in Hong Kong fighting for human rights, democracy and freedom— no matter where you are from, we are all Hong Kongers.

Resident of Coronavirus-hit Building Attributes the Government's Incompetence to the Epidemic Outbreak

Residing in Hong Mei House where infection cases were found, Reeve expressed absolute frustration with the Hong Kong authorities for perpetrating a series of mistakes in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak. This included the government's refusal to completely seal the borders with China, leading to the epidemic outbreak in local community.

Living in the Coronavirus-hit environment with inadequate supply, Reeve bought takeaways for his family before queuing up to get the disinfection pack distributed by pro-democracy district councilor.

In order to avoid infecting his family after going out, he only ate takeaways in the corridors to lessen close contact with his wife and son.
