This is my emotional series on the anti-authoritarian movement happening started from June in Hong Kong. It is the most serious conflict after the handover of Hong Kong from the hand of Britain to China since 1997. Millions of people marched on the street to fight for their freedom away from China's threat, but the Hong Kong government took very little actions to reply their citizens positively. Instead, the brutality of police force and emergency law are used to suppress the freedom of expression and demonstration. As a Hongkonger, I feel upset and frustrated that the old Hong Kong is gone.
