James is such a sweetheart it’s ridiculous.

James is the best pokémon trainer ever. He asks if his pokémon WANTS to join him.

I want the pokemon games to have a James option where you can decide  to ask a pokemon if they want to join your party.. it should be an option you can only pick at the start and if they say no you let them go and leave them alone

Night in Mong Kok                                                             

Hong Kong police clashed with about 9,000 protesters in the Mong Kok district overnight after authorities cleared barricades, and student leaders asked the government to hold promised talks by Oct. 22.

Police used batons, shields and pepper spray last night as they sought to reclaim roads filled with a crowd they estimated at 9,000. The made 26 arrests for alleged assault, causing damage, misconduct in public areas, resisting arrest, disrupting police services and possessing weapons, according to a statement on the Hong Kong government’s website. Some of the areas they reclaimed were later retaken by protesters.

Hey so recently the protests in Hong Kong have reached the eyes and ears of an international audience and I realize that people are reblogging these images of the various states of the protests and the interactions with the police including tear gas, pepper spray and excessive force. I also realize that most people don’t know what exactly is going on or only know vague facts and even though I no longer live there this hits very close to home and I want people to fully understand what is going on. So here’s a run down:

- Hong Kong was a colony of England until 1997 when it was turned over to China. The agreement was that Hong Kong would be allowed to hold their own democratic elections for the first time ever in 2017 to appoint their leader known as the Hong Kong Chief Executive. Currently, that position is filled by someone chosen by a Chinese commitee.  The system that would be put into place in 2017 is “one country two systems”. 

- In July 2014 specifically the Chinese government released a statement basically saying that Hong Kong citizens could vote democratically, but the only candidates that could run would be picked specifically by the Chinese government. China would literally pick who would be Chief Executive allowing for China to implement their own rules through the Chief Exec. on Hong Kong. 

- Benny Tai is the founder and head of Occupy Central a non-violent protest for universal suffrage (basically the right to vote) started in early 2013. Since the Chinese government revealed this set up more people have continued to join the protests which have escalated this past weekend. Just a reminder these were all peaceful protests in which the police responded starting with pepper spray and moving up to tear gas and rubber bullets extremely fast. 

- The importance of these protests though is not specifically the election in 2017 it’s whether Hong Kong will accept China’s slow invasion of Hong Kongers rights or not.  Hong Kong inhabitants throughout the years have been growingly nervous at the thought of a Chinese takeover specifically of another occurrence of Tiananmen Square where about 2.5 thousand peaceful protesters were massacred. Although Hong Kong was not directly targeted the thought that this could happen again in Hong Kong this time is increasingly worry some especially now with the crackdown on the protests.

Honestly the scariest part of this all is that Hong Kong is an international affluent city home to approximately 7.5 million people and one of the most important financial capitals of the world. This is not a small village or town that will be over run, it is a well oiled modern city that prides itself in being insanely efficient and a predominately safe atmosphere. Being a teenager there especially on Hong Kong Island was extremely easy as the number and seriousness of crimes were a bare minimum. Of course there are areas that you wouldn’t want to be walking alone around at night but what I’m trying to get at is this is not a city where excessive violence generally occurs.  So the fact that the police are the ones cracking down and there is fear and anxiety over the future of a democratic Hong Kong is genuinely terrifying.

I really hope you understand the importance of these protests and the impact they will have on the future of Hong Kong.

Note: The last image of the peace sign + umbrella is said to be the slogan for the protests due to the use of umbrellas during the protests to block pepper spray, direct contact to tear gas and for general protection against anything thrown at them. You will notice many people holding them open in the above photos

Foreign media has titled this movement the “Umbrella Revolution.” This is hardly a revolution. “Umbrella Movement” is a more suitable title in this context.

The only “weapons” we have, at most, are the umbrellas we always carry in our bags for the unpredictable weather. Hongkongers wish for nothing but stability. However, as much as we cannot see through the cloudy skies, we do not wish to be stormed upon.

"Umbrella Movement" represents a mellow but determined campaign: In the face of gale and storm, we will never back down!
