Unscrupulous Shops Raise Price after Long Lines for Masks Citywide

The epidemic of Wuhan coronavirus continues to spread, making mask wearing an essential
defense. For the past few days, Hong Kong citizens rushed around to search for masks,
and Macau, which is close to Hong Kong, has already announced that those who hold
Macao resident ID cards or foreign workers blue cards can buy from 54 pharmacies
under the government link 10 masks for $8 at a time to ensure that everyone has a mask.
However, the Hong Kong government does nothing to facilitate the public to buy masks at a
reasonable cost. Even pro-establishment legislators have criticised the government for inaction.

Yesterday, the first day after the Lunar New Year holiday, thousands of citizens searched
for masks everywhere in different districts. In order to buy masks, citizens lined up
overnight ouside chainstores with supplies. However, owing to overwhelming
demand, most in the end went away with disappointment.

There are sporadic availability of masks. Some pharmacies still have small quantities, but
the price of masks has soared more than 10 times. A box of 50 masks from Sifoo Pharmacy
opposite Times Square in Causeway Bay sells for $500. There are consignment masks at
the nearby mobile phone shop, 45 for $600.

Bonjour chain store stated on Facebook that there will be replenishment of Korean masks
at noon today. Each person is limited to 2 packs of 5 masks at $30 each, limited quantity,
first come first served. Available at the Bonjour branches in Causeway Bay, Mong Kok
and Tsimshatsui.

At 10 am, hundreds of people have lined up at Bonjour, 5 Jardine's Bazaar, Causeway Bay,
waiting for the door to open at noon, and the queue extended to Lee Garden Two.

After opening at noon, South Korean masks were available, packs of 5 for $30, limited
to 2 packs, which was equivalent to 50 masks for $300.

Over 100 in Central Flashmob at IFC 'Lunch with You'

Today, office workers in Central continued their “lunch with you” flashmob and protested
in the International Finance Centre (IFC Mall), a landmark of Hong Kong.

Demonstrators pointed out: the Mainland condoned Wuhan's coronavirus, but the Hong
Kong government failed to keep it out. Police brutality threatening public safety and the
rule of law, and Hong Kong's core values are being eroded …. Be brave to guard our city.

At 1 pm, more than a hundred people gathered at the IFC Mall. Some people raised the
black flag of 'Liberate Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time'. An Italian tenor led the singing
of 'Glory to Hong Kong' and other protest songs. Later, the protest moved to the plaza
outside the Exchange Square and the demonstrators chanted, '5 Demands, Not One Less'
and other slogans, attracting many passers-by.

Social Democrats Protest Shutdown of Lunar New Year Stall as 'Political Persecution'

The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) had previously banned the
selling dry goods (non-flower) during the Lunar New Year's Market at Victoria Park,
and yesterday shut down and clear 2 market stalls of the League of Social Democrats
(LSD) after they were deemed political and in breach of their lease.

LSD met with the FEHD yesterday afternoon. After unsuccessful attempts to negotiate,
the department announced the unilateral termination of the contract. Avery Ng,
Chairman of LSD, criticised that the FEHD did not listen to their reasoning. Unilateral
termination of the contract is the suppression of the freedom of speech and political
persecution of Hong Kong people. The FEHD stated that the company's agreement
was terminated for violating Article 1 of the Second Schedule of the Concession
Agreement, which is unprecedented.

LSD leased two stalls for selling flowers at the Lunar New Year's Market, and posted
anti-extradition protests display boards for publicity. The FEHD believes that even
the displays are unrelated to the purpose of selling flowers. The police brutality
exhibits made visitors' 'enjoyment of the atmosphere of Chinese New Year reduced.'
Avery Ng criticised that 'the most loss is not about money, but the freedom of the
Hong Kong people.' The Department did not listen to his reasoning and unilaterally
terminated the contract and closed the stalls before the meeting. The approach
was extremely unreasonable. 'Inability to contain coronavirus but eager to do
political persecution'. As a result, the LSD lost over $40,000.

At about 5 pm yesterday, more than a dozen FEHD staff and outsourced workers cleared
the LSD's 2 market stalls and removed banners with anti-extradition slogans, as well as
political cartoons, by the famous political cartoonist Zunzi, which include chief executive
Carrie Lam and Commisioner of Police PK Tang and President Xi Jinping.

Over 10 members of LSD including Avery , Leung Kwok Hung (Long Hair), and Tsang
Kin-sing (Bull) went to the FEHD headquarters at Admiralty at 11 am to protest its
'inability to contain coronavirus but eager to do political persecution'. The
department sent a representative to receive the protest petition.

Rally at Yuen Long for July 21 Terror Attack 6 Months O

Today is the 6-month anniversary of the 21 July Yuen Long Terrorist Attack. On that day,
people dressed in white attacked the public indiscriminately at the MTR West Rail Yuen
Long Station, causing a large number of citizens to be physically and psychologically
injured. However, after 6 months, most witnesses have not been approached by the
police, the government still refused to set up an independent commission of inquiry
to thoroughly investigate the incident. Kam Tin District Councilor Lee Chung-ki
launched the 'July 21 Screening Memorial' at Yuen Long West Rail Station Exit G
at 7 pm and has received a letter of no objection.

Democratic Party Lam Cheuk-ting and Wan Shiu-kin held a press conference with 8
victims of July 21 today, accusing P K Tang, the Commissioner of Police, and the
police of failing to perform their duties to protect the citizens in the incident. Many
innocent citizens were injured and compensation was required in a planned civil suit.

At 7 pm, over 100 people gathered at the West Rail Yuen Long Station. Videos were
screened and photos displayed showing the terror attack on citizens indiscriminately
on 21 July, attracting many passers-by. Most of the demonstrators were in black and
wore masks, chanting slogans such as 'Free Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time',
'July 21 Police Missing' and 'August 31 Police Murders'. At around 8 pm, the crowd
moved to YOHO Mall I for a sit-in protest.

Hundreds in Central Flashmob to Protest Limiting Freedom of Assembly

against the government limiting freedom of assembly and condonung police brutality
and arbitrary arrests. 'We can’t tolerate, we can’t accept and we can’t forget this'.

Yesterday, the lawful 'Global Sanctions' rally at Chater Garden was cut off by the police
followed by tear gas rounds and large-scale raids in less than two hours after kick-off.

'Global Sanctions' Rally Floods Chater - Exit Crowds Flows to Admiralty

As Hong Kong enters 2020, the government did not make any further concessions in the face
of the strong '5 demands' of the civil society. Faced with the unauthorized departure
of district officers from district council meetings, undercover police arresting young
people for taking pictures in public places, the Independent Police Complaints Council
delayed the submission of investigation report... the protests of Hong Kong people
have not ebbed. The Civil Assembly Team organized a rally today to show public
opinion to the international community, hoping that governments will implement
sanctions against Hong Kong officials and police who persecute Hong Kong people.

The Civil Assembly Team was originally scheduled to launch a 'Global Sanctions' march
today, but the police objected and the appeal was rejected. Only the rally received a
letter of no objection.

The theme of the rally was to urge the governments to implement democratic political
reforms immediately or face sanctions from other countries. In addition to Hong Kong,
22 cities in 12 countries around the world also held events today, including the United
States, Canada, Europe and Australia.

It was originally scheduled to start at Chater Garden at 3 pm, and a large number of
citizens have gathered at 2 pm. The rally will be conducted in a flowing manner. The
entire Chater Road will be the scope of the rally. Tens of thoysands flooded Chater
Garden and Chater Road. When the venue is full, the organizer called on some people
to exit to the east towards Admiralty to make room for new comers, undaunted by
massive riot police deployed in Central and Admiralty.

Don't Shoot Our Kids - Revolution of Our Times Photo Exhibition in Vancouver

6,000 people - most of them mothers, dressed in black holding carnations - joined a sit-in
against police brutality and the China extradition law - completely filled Chater Garden in
Central on 14 June 2019. Some raised "Don't shoot our kids", "Mother is Strong" and other
placards. On 12 June, police violently cleared the young protesters using tear gas, bean
bags and rubber bullets.

One of 2 images of this photographer that are selected in the Revolution of Our Times (RooT),
a multi-city photographic exhibition sharing the collective work of photojournalists who were on
the ground, covering the 2019 Anti-Extradition Law Protests in Hong Kong. The exhibition
seeks to illuminate stories and ideas that go far beyond the headlines of conventional media coverage.

Our fast moving global media environment tends to purge nuance, and gloss over complexity,
in favor of delivering small digestible bits of information. Revolution of Our Times embraces
complexity by exploring a variety of themes including: police intervention, control and
influence, the role and uses of power in society, cultural division with long histories,
the role of propaganda, leadership and resilience, and the effects of disruption to
the daily life of a society.

RooT endeavors to share this important body of work by bringing photos, artifacts, artwork,
and human stories to major world cities with the goal of making the struggle of the citizens
of Hong Kong real, and to put their fight into context. It will quickly become apparent that
despite the distance, cultural divide, and differing histories, there are a set of human
values for which we all yearn, and a brave and desperate few are willing to fight for.

We invite you to step out of our world for a moment, and join us on the streets of Hong Kong
and to experience the Revolution of Our Times.

The anti-extradition protests son-going for 7 months. Netizens called on posting messages
at the Admiralty Lennon Wall from 2 pm today and at Lennon Walls in 18 districts all over
the city at 7-10 pm.

their opinions in a peaceful and rational manner, rather than resorting to violence.
Sounds like a warning to the demonstrators.

Centre and the CITIC Tower pedestrian walkways. Dozens of people wearing masks gathered
near the Lennon Wall in Admiralty, staying for more than an hour, but no action was taken.

walkway and posted messages plus posters there. There were no police officers on the
scene, but a police car was parked under the walkway. The crowd dispersed peacefully

10m Illustration at Mongkok Cafe Documents 6 Months of Protests

Artist Chan Ah-lac hand-painted illustrations of the half-year of anti-extradition protests on

it has become a hot topic on social media. Many people made a special trip to view it.
Business is good and there is often a long queue outside.

The owner of the cafe, Eric, is a full-time interior designer. He said, 'the themes of illustration
are resistance, cats and food. As the cafe has two cat, they are also included. In addition,
the illustration includes The characters of the entire movement, such as a couple wearing
masks hugging in a subway station; Students holding their hands with a pen while forming
a human chain, I turned the pen into a drink; a protester holding a petrol bomb and a brick,
I changed it to a pineapple bun. Because the social atmosphere is too negative, I want it to

Thousands Rally in Central Against White Terror in Education

The anti-extradition protests continued. About 80 teachers and teaching assistants were
arrested in the past six months. The Education Bureau sent a letter to the schools last
month, suggesting that the arrested and prosecuted teachers involved in riots should
be suspended. Kevin Yeung, Secretary for Education, said in a recent media interview
that if the school does not cooperate with the investigation of teachers, the Bureau
had the right to cancel the principal's qualification, which caused a backlash in
the education sector.

Fung Wai-wah, President of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers' Union (HKPTU), criticized
the repeated pressure from the Education Bureau to intimidate the education sector and
create white terror. A rally tonight was organised to show the government that the sector
resists political interference and defends the professionalism of teachers. It also plans to
launch a crowdfunding campaign to support suppressed teachers to counter
unreasonable prosecution.

HKPTU's Fung said that during the anti-extradition protests, the government ignored the
public's opinions with wrong assessments, aroused public indignation, and should correct
its mistakes, but now it is doing the opposite - blaming general education, teacher remarks,
impeding university funding, and more. He criticized the repeated pressure from the
Education Bureau to intimidate the education sector and create white terror, indicating that
the sector would not be muffled, and rally to resist political interference and defend
the teacher profession.

Tonight, HKPTU held a 'Anti-White Terror in Education' rally in Central. At 7 pm, a large
number of citizens filled the Edinburgh Place outside City Hall in Central. A large 'Free HK'
light panel was erected. A Pepe doll holding a plague 'Defend our profession, Safeguard
our conscience' was raised. Thousands arrived to protest against pressure from the
Education Bureau to intimidate the education community.

Hundreds in Central Flashmob To Protest Halting Legal March

The Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) launched a New Year's Day march yesterday. A China
Life Insurance shop in Wanchai was damaged during the march yesterday. Witnesses at
the scene questioned the two masked men as disguised police officers. They ran
towards the direction of more than a dozen riot police officers at the scene. After
the two yelled "same team" to the riot police, the police let them go.

Later, without any warning, police used pepper spray and tear gas rounds on the public.
The police soon use this as an excuse to halt the march and demanded that all citizens
be dispersed within 30 minutes. CHRF was forced to announce the end of the march.

Today, netizens organised a 'Lunch with You in Central' flashmob to complete the march
together to protest against the government's violation of freedom of assembly and
unreasonably cut off legal protest march. Starting at 12:45 pm, hundreds of people
and office workers gathered in Statue Square in Central and chanted '5 Demands,
Not One Less'. Someone raised a poster reading 'Standup for Hong Kong'.

Million March on 2020 New Year's Day Flooding Hong Kong Island

The anti-extradition movement in the second half of 2019 connected millions of Hong
Kong people and rewrote Hong Kong's history. A large number of citizens who have
never participated in any protest or march before joined in.

Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) held a 'Don't forget your commitment, Stand with us'
march today on January 1, 2020, and recently received a letter of no objection from
the police. The march starts from Victoria Park Central Lawn and ends at the
pedestrian zone on Chater Road, Central.

CHRF stated, 'Hong Kong people believe that there are still only 5 wishes for the new
year - 5 demands, not one less. In 2020, there is too much work to be done: Even if the
district councils achieve unexpected results, the community front must still fight for
the yellow economic circle and the trade union front must move slowly under pressure;
once street protests are relaxed, the government will settle the score.'

Starting at 1 pm, crowd began to gather on the central lawn of Victoria Park in Causeway
Bay, chanting, '5 Demands, Not One Less' and Free Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time.'
Starting at 2 pm, the march started and crowds occupied all lanes of Causeway Road
and set off to Central, flooding the streets of Hong Kong Island. 1.03 million marched,
according to the organisers.
