ADHRRF — The Hong Kong Anti-extradition Protest has now headed into its 4th month. On September 29, 2019, rallies in Sydney, Melbourne and other Australian cities, part of a global “anti-totalitarianism” rally, were kicked off in support of Hong Kong.
At 4 to 6 p.m that day, more than 200 protestors, including Hongkongers, Tibatan, Uygurs, Christians from The Church of Almighty God in Australia gathered outside the State Library Victoria, Melbourne.
At the beginning, a spokesperson for the rally introduced the Hong Kong demostration’s origin and five demands, and then the CCP’s persecution of Xinjiang Uygurs, Tibatants, Falun Gong practitioners, etc. and the Tiananmen Square Protests. Historical pictures of its killing of the Chinese people, which were demonstrated during the rally, revealed the numerous crimes the CCP totalitarian regime has committed since it came to power.
Mr. Zhang, one of the organizers, told the reporter that Hongkongers join street protests only fighting for their rights, but many of them were disappeared or suicided. “Hong Kong government, as a puppet government, does not have real power. It doesn’t listen to our voice, but instead, it treats its citizens with violence. It’s an obvious fact that the ‘one country, two systems’ policy exists in name only. We do not want our next generation to face such a totalitarian government. What we need is a government that speaks for and serves its people,” he said.
John Day, a postgraduate from Monash University, said that the biggest threat to Hong Kong’s democracy and freedom is the Chinese Communist government and he came here not because he was against Chinese people, but the CCP. He wished that China would be a better place.
He also said, “I think Chinese people are waking up. I feel this battle is not actually my battle, it is Chinese people’s battle.”
The same day, over 1,000 protestors stood before the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, in solidarity with Hong Kong’s Protest Against totalitarianism.
