The protest in Hong Kong has no sign of dying down after a year of violent fight since June, 2019. Began as an objection to the Extradition Bill to China, it has evolved to a comprehensive protest over the future of this city. Police brutality does not only affect the protesters, but every ordinary Hong Kong citizen. "The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting." Scar and bruise may fade, but we have to remember how they get through. Here are the wounds of the casualties.
