RTHK, paid for by HK's Public Purse, video since removed by RTHK from the internet. Enjoy!
On the evening of 21 July 2019 ('721'), at Yuen Long MTR station, inside train carriages and on the platform 200 local triads (gangsters) armed with sticks attacked a trainload of commuters, including peaceful Hong Kong (HK) protesters returning from a peaceful protest.
Today we commemorate the second anniversary of 721.
The Stand News video released on the second anniversary of 712.
In a parallel turn of events, in HK now a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) imposed 'national security law' (NSL) is being used to scare and coerce everyone in a desperate bid for CCP's prosperity and legitimacy in the city : This is NOT a security law! It is in reality a law for repression. By enacting HK's NSL in 2020 CCP halted the lawful, natural freedom and development of HK people - as it did in China's Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989! CCP acts exactly like the Yuen Long thugs, attacking people indiscriminately.
Days before the MTR station attack CCP officials had met with triads and locals at a dinner in Yuen Long and encouraged them to resist outside 'interference'.
As the attack unfolded and citizens called emergency numbers the police stood by for approximately 39 minutes and did nothing to stop the attack nor to help those injured. The police have attempted to change the narrative on this incident by criminally charging those who were attacked.
HK protesters uphold the Joint Declaration and the rule OF law : The CCP, the HK government and their supporters do NOT!
There are many lies throughout the history of CCP which are used as part of its structural violence of torture by coercion of the people of China for 'stability and prosperity' to ensure that CCP remains in power : i.e. if you want 'prosperity' then you must accept and support CCP's actions for 'stability' which includes arbitrary disappearances, murder, Tiananmen massacre, COVID-19 source and spreading, Xinjiang genocide, etc.
The UN supreme human right is our "right to life". This right has been repeatedly violated in HK by CCP and the HK government.
HK peoples have their UN right to truth - to know what really took place in Yuen Long that awful night, and to know about state-sponsored terrorism, including violations of human rights, forced disappearances, and torture which includes coercion. One of HK protester's '5 demands' is for an independent Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the actions of the police and HK government since 9 June 2019 : To date there has been no COI.
CCP and HK government are trying hard to whitewash the truth of HK protests including 721 Yuen Long MTR attack by triads. The police even attempted to change the narrative by saying that this was a gang fight between two opposing groups and that the anyone who was beaten by the triads was part of a rival gang!
WTPOHK is keeping history alive and honest.
HK protesters keep the flame burning bright. Gai yau (add oil).
[Update 22 July 2021] Seven men convicted by HK Court given sentences 3.5 - 7years : Judge comments 'they had lost their minds'. The real questions remain :
1. When will the other 200 triads be charged?
2. When will there be an independent Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the actions of the CCP, police, pro-CCP lawmakers and others at Yuen Long MTR on 21 July 2019?
CCP please answer all of the following UN letters sent to you:
Mandates of the UN Special Rapporteur 28 June 2019 (On 12 June 2021 protest)
