Thank you for reblogging and sharing the post! 🙂
Please know that my friends and I and all those Vietnamese refugees who had fled Vietnam are on your side. Moreover, my Chinese blood make my heart aches!
Many thanks for your kind sentiments!
I’m really intrigued by every post you make with photos from Hong Kong. I’m glad you’re documenting this and sharing it with us all 🙂 In Australia there’s been nothing about this protest for weeks.
Thanks! This is history in the making.
