RTHK Hong Kong Connection : Minimal Force ?
Updated: May 7
The evening of 31 August 2019 at Prince Edward MTR station, inside train carriages and on the platform, police armed with batons without cause, provocation nor warning attacked hundreds of commuters, including Hong Kong (HK) protesters returning home from a peaceful protest.
Similarly roughly one month earlier in the evening of 21 July 2019 armed triads (gangsters), encouraged and supported by CCP and the police, had attacked an MTR train of commuters and peaceful protesters.
As the police attack unfolded and citizens called emergency numbers the police refused First Aiders to attend to those injured inside the MTR. For reasons known only to the police, everyone, including the injured, was transported by MTR to another station in Yau Ma Tei.
Despite many calls to release the full CCTV footage of events in Prince Edward and Yau Ma Tei MTR stations, authorities have chosen to keep the truth a secret. HK public is of the opinion that MTR passengers were 'murdered' by police : Hence the shrine that was erected outside Prince Edward MTR - which coincidentally is adjacent to a police station.
CCP is trying hard to whitewash the truth of HK protests.
WTPOHK is keeping history alive and honest.
Gai yau (add oil)!
CCP please answer these UN letters to China:
THANK YOU! Our respect and appreciation to RTHK staff who have for decades provided excellent and impartial media coverage - that was until recently when CCP decided RTHK had to broadcast its propaganda!
