Join us! Draw this in your style or any Blizzard game characters as a Hong Kong protester. Don't let the Chinese government control our free speech!
Your painting is amazing, She did become one of the symbols of we Hongkongners fighting for freedom and thank you for standing with Hong Kong. LIBERATE HONG KONG, REVOLUTION OF OUR TIMES! ( from a honkonger who loves hk really much)
Fighting for our peace with the violence
People trading blood with the diamonds
I feel like we might never learn Shots to the sky,
shots to the sky Shadows we use to fight darkness
But this the light we need to harness
Make lovers glow with reflection
And now it's time to lay down the weaponry
Fight fire with water, we can't let this be So let it be
No more jeopardy when it comes to the future

I’m not sure if people, who followed your view here, know objectively Hongkong’s history and current situation.
Hongkong was ruled by U.K. government. However, on 1st July 1997, China resumed its rule over Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region was established. Since then, Hongkong has entered a new period of development. Especially with the high-speed establishement and development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Hongkong is creating a better –and-better future. More and more international guests visit, invest and stay here. Local citizens live a better-and-better life in Hongkong. Nobody can destroy this harmonious picture. This is the objective embodiment of “one country, two systems”.
In your view, it’s like there is a parade in Texas, so there is a fight for “freedom”. NO! Hongkong is part of China. What you’ve got is not what it should be. History will prove some politician stretch out their hands too long, but it's useless. Let “color revolution” go fucking.
Your paintings is good and I liked. But no this issue, I must refute you totally.
Dude your profile was just made has no uploads. This is incredibly shady...
Also, Texas reserves the right to secede, so bad example to use. Unless you believe that Hong Kong has the right to secede?
Their is already a major difference most terrorist attacks in the U.S. are made by people looking for attention or trying to impose tyrannical laws on the public. They aren't freedom fighters because they aren't fighting for freedom, they are terrorists because they want to impose their agenda on others thru fear. That being said someone can be both a Freedom Fighter and a Terrorist.
In Hong Kong people are fighting for independence as an American I cannot condemn them, even if I don't condone their actions. I cannot know the full extent of things but from what I understand their are some protesters who have escalated things, though it would appear that the police are not entirely blameless either (Of course inevitably their will always be bad apples on both sides of any conflict). I will say that no I do not condone the use of explosives in civilian centers, or the assault/murder of a police officer. Violence and Armed Rebellion should only be used as a last resort, as a response to excessive demonstrations of force. However, If I hear that their are any atrocities or excessive demonstrations of force coming out of the Hong Kong or Chines Government I will quickly shift gears.
That being said while I do not currently think violence is called for, the existence of bad actors does not invalidate the validity of their point. You cannot condemn an entire group based on the fact that some of them are acting in an immoral or violent fashion, you must engage with their argument, and from where I am standing the protesters would appear to be in the right. Though I suppose as a native of Hong Kong that is for you and your peers to decide not some Yanky from Don't Trust the Government U.S.A., I will remain appraised of the situation and allow what fact i can glean to color my opinions as necessary. For now all i can do is pray things work out for the best, my country has it's own problems to worry about.
