[Hong Kong protests resources]

Hong Kong version of Reddit, lihkg.com, has been DDOSed, to the advantage of the Chicoms.

It has regained functionality but it looks like access is limited (VPN into certain countries works).

To fight back, HK netizens have posted a list of Telegram channels already used regularly by them. In addition they are starting to use Reddit as a backup.

I am copy pasting here for interested parties.

I use Google. Here's some search tips:

1. Use quotes around a phrase to force search results to include it, like "Trump accomplishments". Try it! You can even put other keywords outside the quoted phrase or do multiple quoted phrases.

@ThomasWic @hbgilmore

Thomas, I remember once that you described death as walking into another room. It was the first time I had heard someone else express that thought.

One of these days, I would like to hear more about why you feel that way. I've had dreams about opening a door and walking into another room where people I have lost are happily living their lives as if death never occurred. My dream never sorts out why the people that were around them in life are no longer there though.

More than two-thirds of Americans approve of President Trump’s hardline approach to China, despite believing tariffs will negatively impact U.S. prices and jobs, a new survey found.

A Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey showed that 67 percent of registered voters said Washington should confront China’s unfair trade practices.

Stop praying, its pointless.

All is lost.

Trump has lost already. One term Prez.

Try to get Fitton elected President in 2028. He can do the heavy lifting that will be needed after 8 years of a Biden Presidency.

It's your only hope.

Addendum

I forgot to say something about the losers:

FAKE NEWS

“In the U.S. Congress, we look forward to swiftly advancing the bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act to reaffirm the U.S. commitment to democracy, human rights and the rule of law in the face of Beijing’s crackdown. Democrats and Republicans continue to stand united with the people of Hong Kong in demanding the hopeful, free and democratic future that is their right.”

“The pro-Beijing leadership in Hong Kong must ensure a political system accountable to the people, including granting universal suffrage and investigating police violence. The escalating violence and use of force perpetrated by the Hong Kong authorities against their own people in recent weeks, which has led to tragic loss of life, must end now."

Pelosi Statement on Withdrawal of Hong Kong Extradition Bill

“The long-overdue withdrawal of the dangerous extradition bill is welcome news, but much more must be done to fully realize the legitimate aspirations of the Hong Kong people, as guaranteed under ‘One Country, Two Systems.

The people of Hong Kong deserve the future of justice, real autonomy and freedom from fear that they were promised, and for which they have long been courageously fighting.

Time is being bought.

But what's this?

NANCY PELOSI is acting BIPARTISAN?!

Hear all that jubilant noise about Hong Kong stocks?

What a pretty sound.

Who convenes Sep 9th?

The US Congress.

TIMING.

TIMING IS KEY.

The *proposal* to remove the Extradition Bill is OCTOBER.

"First, the Government will formally withdraw the Bill in order to fully allay public concerns. The Secretary for Security will move a motion according to the Rules of Procedure when the Legislative Council resumes."

When.

Good advice; but The President already knows that China is "ass-ho"

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
