I'm a Hong Konger amidst the protests here. AMA!
I'm a young Hong Kong person in the midst of the protests and police brutality. AMA about the political situation here. I am sided with the protesters (went to a few peaceful marches) but I will try to answer questions as unbiased as possible.
EDIT: I know you guys have a lot of questions but I'm really sorry I can't answer them instantly. I will try my best to answer as many questions as possible but please forgive me if I don't answer your question fully; try to ask for a follow-up and I'll try my best to get to you. Cheers!
EDIT 2: Since I'm in a different timezone, I'll answer questions in the morning. Sorry about that! Glad to see most people are supportive :) To those to aren't, I still respect your opinion but I hope you have a change of mind. Thank you guys!
EDIT 3: Okay, so I just woke up and WOW! This absolutely BLEW UP! Inbox is completely flooded with messages!! Thank you so much you all for your support and I will try to answer as many questions as I can. I sincerely apologize if I don't get to your question. Thank you all for the tremendous support!
EDIT 4: If you're interested, feel free to visit r/HongKong, an official Hong Kong subreddit. People there are friendly and will not hesitate to help you. Also visit r/HKsolidarity, made by u/hrfnrhfnr if you want. Thank you all again for the amounts of love and care from around the globe.
EDIT 5: Guys, I apologize again if I don’t get to you. There are over 680 questions in my inbox and I just can’t get to all of you. I want to thank some other Hong Kong people here that are answering questions as well.
EDIT 6: Special thanks to u/Cosmogally for answering questions as well. Also special thanks to everyone who’s answering questions!!
