I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Taiwan and China should secede from the mainland. They have entirely different cultures and political beliefs, and for Hong Kong different official language from mainland China, to remain under China’s jurisdiction.

Singapore separated from Malaysia, and I’m glad we did as we’re doing better than any administered region could ever hope to achieve. Being governed by another larger territory will always suppress a region’s economy from achieving it’s fullest potential.

#Do you hear the people sing?

I would like to change my ACNL villagers according to a town theme. Like maybe everyone has something related to Cornwall, but I feel as though I will be forced to take on villagers I don’t really like aesthetically to match the theme or keep the ratio balanced.

I was thinking:
Cherry, sassy - cherry PIE, our native fruit is cherry
Pecan, snooty - her Japanese name Rebecca from Daphne du Maurier’s novel set in Cornwall, also pecan PIE
Felicity, peppy - her gardening interior represents the Eden Project
Coco, sweetie- no theme just the creep factor to match the 444 dream address
Ava/Broffina/Becky, sweetie & snooty - I really dislike the chickens but I need a Cornish hen

Cole, lazy - Cornwall’s coal mining industry
Jacques, smug - the Chough, a heraldry symbol. I dislike his house but he’s a cool character
Octavian, cranky - fisherman, fish house with fish smoke. Represents the fishing industry. He is an octopus.
Bud, jock - the famous beaches in Cornwall. He’s gay and (Terrence) “mannnnn”
Drago, lazy - mythical dragon. England was full of dragons and we need an Asian character to go in the bamboo grove and persimmon area.
Beardo, smug - my dear Watson, you can’t get more British than this!

My problem is I can’t have more than 10, but I can’t include all of them. And I want balanced genders. Anyone with better knowledge of the villagers can help me?

Today I went for a buffet. I ate so much that I puked out a river of chocolate pudding. It was disgusting,
