“I think if you’re a Hong Konger, you need to come out, because the mainland is taking our freedom of speech, and ‘one country, two systems’ away.” https://t.co/p5iolxhXvf

Powerful. “You have to choose which knee you will defend. There are no half choices; there is no room for indifference. There is only the knee of protest or the knee on the neck.” https://t.co/n96ZYj9IHi

"America has looted black people. America looted the Native Americans when they first came here, looting is what you do. We learned it from you. We learned violence from you. If you want us to do better, then damnit, you do better.” —Tamika Mallory, Nat. Co-Chair of Women's March https://t.co/EP2VpnCYMw

Quoted @Kaepernick7

In fighting for liberation there‘s always retaliation. We must protect our Freedom Fighters. We started a legal defense initiative to give legal representation to Freedom Fighters in Minneapolis paid for by @yourrightscamp For representation or to donate https://t.co/q0pzAObCiG

These are things we can do wherever we are. We need to contribute to this conversation, to act. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that what happens in one country affects us all as one human race. If you're upset about what's happening, use that to fuel change.

4. Be compassionate. To those around you, to people in your communities that have often been discriminated against. Let them know you support them, provide assistance where you can, and be open and willing to learn from them, to understand their lived experiences.

3. Leverage the privileges you have to help. What are ways you can use your privilege to protect Black people and other minorities? Use that to inform your own behavior. Call out people who act and speak wrongly. Now is not the time to be silent.

2. Educate yourself. This is not about the "other" or "them," this is about humanity, this is about "us." Read and learn about the oppression that Black people and minorities face on the daily. And acknowledge your privilege. Once you do...

1. Examine your lives. Look at how your own words and actions and lives support this sort of racism. We are not immune of this in Asia. In China, we saw racism against Black people during COVID-19. In many parts of Asia, people with darker skin color are discriminated against.

It's heartbreaking to see what's happening in America and the systemic abuse and killings of Black people. How can we, outside the United States, help? What are ways we can be allies? Here are some ways:

By the time EMS put him in the ambulance, Floyd didn't have a pulse. Read: New Video Shows 3 Cops Kneeling on George Floyd as He Lay Dying - VICE https://t.co/rw17IXGNTG

George Floyd was held down for almost 3 minutes after he went unresponsive and had no pulse. https://t.co/SNyQobeJHj

Thousands of protesters are raging against George Floyd's killing. Here's what's happening at the nationwide protests. https://t.co/U2EkIvoMZM

Fixed the headline: Anti-government protesters in America take to streets of Minnesota to call for an end to human rights abuses and the murder of black people by government forces. The country's President has threatened a violent response.

There needs to be some rhetorical space between "Hong Kong is dead" and "Hong Kong will be fine." The national security law is an unprecedented threat. But anyone who has been watching knows that Hong Kong people are going to keep fighting—just as they have for years.

Will never not link out to this disturbing, alarming investigative series by @natashya_g on how desperate women are dying in backstreet clinics, with no accountability for the quacks running these operations. #WomensHealthMatters #SRHRisEssential https://t.co/AyObdJKYgH https://t.co/OOYEfRTZLh

As China's parliament approves Hong Kong's national security legislation, @joshuawongcf and @KwongGlacier explain why it's especially crucial now for the world to stand by Hong Kong. https://t.co/Kw16MGKsCY

Proud to host such important content on @viceasia. An Op-Ed from student activists @joshuawongcf and @glacierkwong on the national security law. Hear the youth's voices. READ: Forfeiting Hong Kong Is Not an Option: This Is the Place We Call Home https://t.co/Q4ahsSYZ9x
