25th August 2019 – (Hong Kong) Foreign flags are omnipresent in almost all street rallies in Hong Kong. Some of these flag-bearers may be waving them as a sign to call upon foreign nations for help while many are suspicious as to whether they were indeed paid to show patriotism. The funder of the movement could be paying protesters to wave flags of different nations to confuse others and to minimise suspicion.
In Kwun Tong yesterday, many American flag bearers were spotted at the street rally where protesters toppled and damaged around 6 multifunctional smart street lamps in which they found evidence of devices similar to the street lights used in Uyghur for mass surveillance purpose.
The practice of mass surveillance in the United States dates back to World War I wartime monitoring and censorship of international communications from, to, or which passed through the United States. From National Security Agency (NSA) to social media platforms which are mostly owned by U.S. companies, the American government has been at the forefront of surveillance. The manifestation of American ideology demonstrated by these local flag bearers is simply incomprehensible unless they are funded. Only a small percentage of the frontline protesters who engage in clashes are allegedly used as tools by a mastermind with hidden motive as 90% of the other genuine protesters conveniently share the same ant-Beijing agenda.
A man was spotted in the recent rally held at Causeway Bay waving a British colonial flag of Hong Kong. Another man approached him to ask him about the British flag. He then told the man that the flags were available for purchase in Causeway Bay and he repetitively asked him to leave as he was ‘working’.
