Yesterday was a very special day in Taiwan because President Tsai held her inauguration address to the people of Taiwan and in it, she stated so many inspiring things letting the world know that she’s first and foremost all about the people of Taiwan. She states clearly that she and the people of Taiwan refuse the idiotic “One Country, Two Systems” bullshit that the CCP keeps touting as the way to solve the China/Taiwan issue. We here in Hong Kong are proof that this One Country, Two Systems facade doesn’t work. Here‘s a full article about her speech.
On the same day that she addressed Taiwan, we here in Hong Kong sat solemnly noticing the stark difference between our two “leaders”. Where Taiwan has someone who was voted in by the people of Taiwan, who speaks with calm, intellect, hope, empathy, understanding, yet is still strong in her stance and hope for Taiwan, we are stuck with someone who was not voted in by the people of Hong Kong and whose only duty is to fulfill the orders of Beijing to the detriment to our culture, language and core values and under whom the fabric of this city will continue to burn with rage.
One day this will change for us and we, the people of Hong Kong, will be able to vote for our own leader. Someone that puts the interests of the people of Hong Kong above everything else.
Taiwan – keep it up…we in Hong Kong love everything about you.
Also on the same day, Taiwan’s biggest metal export to the entire planet – Chthonic – released one of the most epicly shot and edited fullset live videos. The band performed with an orchestra to over 50,000 adoring fans AND in front of the Presidential Palace. CRAZY RIGHT!? That’s how much the band is respected and supported in Taiwan.
Here’s the setlist and the video is further below.
