Let Us never EVER forget why we had to do this in Hong kong! Because each year, the Communist Beijing Government refused to accept responsibility and denies the Tiananmen Student Massacre which occurred on the 4th June 1989 where they used Tanks to kill their own people! This is what to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) what it means to be “By the people, for the people!”
Let US NEVER EVER Let them use the GREAT Firewall of China to Deny what Tank Man did all those years ago!!!!!!! WE ARE ALL TANK MAN!!!!!!
