¿Qué pasó?

Hong Kong es una ciudad con una población de 7,4 millones de personas. El 9 de junio,1.000.000 personas tomaron las calles, seguido por un mitin el 12 de junio. La Policía de Hong Kong atacó a los manifestantes pacíficos con fuerza excesiva e innecesaria. El gobierno ignoró el consenso de los ciudadanos a quienes debería de servir. En el 15 de junio, tuvimos la primera pérdida. “El Hombre en el Impermeable Amarillo” se cayó trágicamente desde un centro comercial cerca de la sede central del gobierno tras desplegar una pancarta grande en contra del proyecto de la Ley de Extradición. El 16 de junio, 2.000.000 personas tomaron las calles tras el estallido violento del 12 de junio. Exigimos que el gobierno retire el proyecto de la Ley de Extradición, que traiga justicia a los manifestantes detenidos y que empieza una investigación independiente sobre el uso excesivo de violencia de la Policía el 12 de junio.

    El Rechazo
    landing
    The government ignored the chorus of public opposition. The government insisted on putting the Extradition Bill forward for its final vote at the Legislative Council meeting on 12 June despite the unprecedented turnout of protesters against the bill on 9 June.

    El Fin del Juego
    landing
    Protesters demanded an immediate stop to the second reading of the Extradition Bill. Ignored by the government, tens of thousands of Hongkongers attempted to prevent legislative proceedings on the Extradition Bill by surrounding the Legislative Council, where they faced excessive violence from the police.

    La Violencia
    landing
    The police used excessive violence against protesters during a largely peaceful protest. The police used pepper spray, batons, rubber bullets, bean bag rounds and over 150 rounds of tear gas against unarmed students, journalists and even first-aid personnel. The government later characterised the protest as a "riot".

    La Trampa
    landing
    Police dangerously encircled and forced peaceful protesters into a commercial building. Protesters within the designated protest zone were encircled and ambushed by the police from both sides of the zone. The police fired tear gas into the centre of the crowd, forcing them to flee into a commercial building through a narrow entrance. This almost led to a stampede.

    El Verdicto
    landing
    Numerous NGOs and governments around the world condemned the violence that the protesters endured on 12 June. Amnesty International verified that the Hong Kong police had violated international law and standards on the use of force by law enforcement officials on 12 June. The unlawful police actions included: 1. Brutally beating protesters; 2. Firing of multiple rounds of tear gas at hundreds of trapped protesters; 3. Firing of rubber bullets towards protesters in close range; 4. Improper usage of pepper spray; 5. Obstructing media from reporting; and 6. Blockage of emergency ambulances.

    The First Death
    landing
    The movement suffered its first death when a man killed himself in protest against the Extradition Bill. "The Man in the Yellow Raincoat", Mr. Leung, threw himself off a building and plunged to his death near the Government Headquarters after unfurling a large protest banner against the Extradition Bill.

    Delaying Tactics
    landing
    The government finally responded to the public, but refused to fully withdraw the bill and to drop the rioting charges against the protesters. Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, refused to withdraw the Extradition Bill but only temporarily suspended it. At the same time, internal orders were given to medical staff in hospitals to disclose protesters’ personal information to the police, resulting in at least five injured demonstrators being arrested in hospitals. Some injured protesters did not seek medical treatment for fear of being arrested.

    The People Speak Again
    landing
    2,000,000 citizens marched to demand that the government fully withdraw the Extradition Bill, investigate into the excessive violence used by police on 12 June, unconditionally release arrested protesters and retract the government’s characterization of the 12 June protest as a "riot".

    Nunca Olvidar, Nunca Perdonar
    landing
    The government apologised for inadequately “educating” the public on the bill but decided it was not responsible for the damage that it has inflicted on society. Se disculpó, pero no se hizo responsable por el daño que la política causó a la sociedad. El Gobierno ha hecho poco sino enfadar a los ciudadanos de Hong Kong. To date, the government still refuses to heed the pleas of the citizens and continues to justify the excessive force used by the police despite widespread condemnation. Hasta la fecha, el gobierno sigue negándose a escuchar la llamada de los ciudadanos. Sigue justificando la fuerza excesiva que usó la policía pese a la condena generalizada.

    Se Salió Con Toda la Suya
    landing
    The government has done nothing concrete to address the public’s demands. The government failed to agree to any of the demands made by the public. On 21 June, protesters surrounded the Police Headquarters and demanded the Commissioner of Police, Stephen Lo, to respond to issues of police brutality. The protesters also urged the Commissioner to explain why on-duty police officers failed to show their identifying documents during the 12 June protest, which made it impossible to file complaints against police actions.

    La Segunda Muerte
    landing
    Una estudiante universitaria de 21 años se suicidó saltando de un edificio residencial. Antes de su muerte, escribió las demandas del público en un muro cercano y le pidió a los Hongkoneses que siguieran luchando hasta el final.
