PHR is gravely concerned about the health effects of law enforcement’s use of indiscriminate crowd-control weapons during #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd demonstrations. 

The dangers are made more extreme by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Joint statement by the Vice-Chancellors of 5 Hong Kong universities on #NatSecLaw is disappointing. 
But it won't go unnoticed that the text is full of qualifications; "FULLY SUPPORT 1 country, 2 systems" but "UNDERSTAND the need for national security legislation"

What really happened to George Floyd? This reconstruction by my colleagues gives us by far the most comprehensive look of that evening. It’s difficult to watch, but you have to watch it. https://t.co/GTAIsvzPwg

Police have now officially banned the annual June 4th vigil in Victoria Park for the 1st time in 30 years. I'm reposting this message from Lee Cheuk-yan calling for individual commemoration across Hong Kong and the world #6431truth #StandWithHongKong https://t.co/S9gWyL5A73 https://t.co/A3Rxwp978X

An unprecedented intervention by Association of Directors of Public Health - calling on UK government to delay easing lockdown until tracing system is robust. How on earth has it come to this? https://t.co/iyX8MweBdC

I want to take some time to make use of my professional training as a linguistic anthropologist and explain WHY this is such a good headline. 1/ https://t.co/4ojzWlPXTm

Interesting and thoughtful thread. I particularly like the response that points out the naturalistic fatalism of a word like "erupt". https://t.co/QLI0xP7jEj

Dominic Lee, who said he would report @nathanlawkc for colluding with foreign forces when #NatSecLaw comes into effect, in different times. https://t.co/HQiKBadRga https://t.co/qv2kv1OozU

Very interesting indeed. It appears Chiang is not the only one saying somebody signed the support petition on his behalf https://t.co/SzpYpkvt21

Reminds me of the recent blue-ribbon blacklist that included names of Szeto Wah and Allen Lee https://t.co/Hknkrs6o1d

I very rarely draw Cultural Revolution parallels but party-state mouthpiece Wen Wei Po reports that a 300-strong volunteer parent group has been mobilised to monitor and expose "yellow" (pro-democracy) schoolteachers in Hong Kong. It's called "Save the Children"(obv not THAT one) https://t.co/0jSMfbLSuQ

Hong Kong has no one to blame but itself for Beijing’s intervention in national security legislation https://t.co/1Z86iTtlbA

Victim blaming fm guy who castigated women who "throw on 2 or more shapeless quilts & stagger around looking like eskimos who took a wrong turn at the North Pole" instead of flashing "just a glimpse of thigh, nothing immodest ... but enough to light a spark in an old man’s eye" https://t.co/zoiU5KqJrl

Let’s be clear here. Just because the government says it’s safe to go out now, it doesn’t mean it is. It means they’re ready for you to get sick. If your mental health / finances allow you to keep socially distancing, please do so. For all our sakes. 🙏https://t.co/EdVuem4C6C

Quoted @KillerMartinis

an update: I am permanently blind in my left eye, and the docs absolutely refuse to let me go back to work for they say six weeks. I’m definitely not allowed to be near smoke or gas. Usually if I had to stay home I’d spend a lot of time amplifying folk but reading hurts today

When states attack journalists, they attack #PressFreedom https://t.co/BlpkB0rhlf
