Very good to take some time@our from election observation to tell #JuniusHo in person that I was responsible for the revocation of his honorary doctorate from @AngliaRuskin #Sorrynotsorry https://t.co/3y2TdWgbfS
This video is insane. Many reports that some police are advancing on #PolyU with lethal weapons + police chief has requested official permission for their use.
Carrie Lam’s Tiananmen may well be a university campus.
The world is watching.
Lord Hogan-Howe has just said:
“Reports that police in Hong Kong are armed with live ammunition and approaching the sit-ins is alarming. I urge the police to not use lethal force because it can only make the situation worse. Unless life is at risk hold back.”
BREAKING: Mass disqualifications of democratic candidates in #HongKong happening right now.
Another hammer-blow to Hong King’s autonomy.
“Lifeboat” policies have clearly been inadequate to curb Beijing’s bullying. It’s time for coordinated sanctions. twitter.com/XinqiSu/status…..
One party state.
One “President for Life”.
One response: non-violent, resolute resistance.
Heading back to London.
Thank you #HK for letting us share in your unforgettable victory.
香港人, 加油 🇬🇧🇭🇰 https://t.co/4uwUb4D71D
Terribly sorry to hear the tragic news that #JuniusHo appears to have lost by 17 votes. A great shame for #HongKong and the world.
Do you think the international community should declare its support for universal suffrage in Hong Kong?
HKers - I need your help.
I'm compiling evidence of police brutality involving Rupert Dover, David Jordan and Justin Shave for a legal project 😉
Can you help me by posting links to reports/videos/intel etc in this thread (or DM me)?
Boris Johnson reportedly said he is going to help Hong Kongers in a Ugandan-style "lifeboat" immigration scheme. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
We should be cautious. We need to see the detail - and @Number10press response - BUT: https://t.co/glPrXYEvEU
HKers can you help, please?
I have heard from a number of politicians/ journalists who have asked for help verifying this video.
Any concrete leads, please DM me.
If these are protestors who have indeed been taken to the Mainland, the world needs to know.
Shocked to learn that this man, reportedly Stephen Ng, seen here perpetrating the vicious 7/21 Yuen Long attacks in #HongKong has fled and taken refuge in Cambridge.
The U.K. should not be a haven for people like this. We will be raising this with the local authorities. https://t.co/0dKNIiQ46f
@DominicRaab has just declared that the National Security Law represents a violation of the Sino-British Joint Declaration.
Now let's hear the consequences.
This has completely floored me.
Tweeted last week that my fam was struggling to find food.
This week #HKers sent packages containing masks, dried food and even loo roll!
We will take what we need and donate anything else.
😭 Words fail. Thank you. ❤️🥰
Over my dead body will you be permitted to settle in the UK.
This scheme isn’t for triad-colluding, hate-mongering, authoritarian-hugging thugs.
If you come here, we will prosecute you.
Sorry, la https://t.co/eOqRMfWtNg
The police commander in this video is caught on tape clearly saying take a “straight shot at the head”. After the past two days of unrestrained police brutality, will the world finally wake up to what is happening in #HongKong? #HongKongStrong #DefendtheNewFrontline twitter.com/HomeKong__/sta…..
This is a disaster.
@DominicRaab @tariqahmadbt @nadams @UKinHongKong we've been holding out and holding out some more, hoping that we could salvage something from the Joint Declaration.
We cannot hold out any more. Beijing is making its move on #HongKong and we MUST act now. twitter.com/phoebe_kongwy/…..
Hong Kong Twitter is noticeably quieter - the chilling effect of the National Security Law.
I wish I had the ability to reassure friends that tweets won’t be held against them - because the world needs to hear #HK voice.
Thank you to those who continue to speak out.
