# \#metoo
*Oct 10 2019*
We’ve frontline 'braves', but the real revolution in HK is being undertaken by courageous men & women who're standing up to talk openly abt sexual assaults by the HKPF, breaking taboos. I believe their stories. We must not fail them.
![t27-p1](images/thread27/t27-p1.jpg)
Rumours of sexual assaults by the HKPF have been swirling since Aug. Our art illustrates succinctly what these attacks boil down to - an asymmetry of power that allows perpetrators to demean and more importantly, silence their victims with absolutely no consequences.
![t27-p2](images/thread27/t27-p2.jpg)
![t27-p3](images/thread27/t27-p3.jpg)
![t27-p4](images/thread27/t27-p4.jpg)
But the city has rallied round these victims of assault. In Aug, we held a big #ProtestToo event which gave both women *&* men a platform to give their testimonies abt the violence inflicted on their bodies and psyches. We supported them, we welcomed them, we believed them.
![t27-p5](images/thread27/t27-p5.jpg)
![t27-p6](images/thread27/t27-p6.jpg)
![t27-p7](images/thread27/t27-p7.jpg)
Bcos we can all see the asymmetry in power now, even those whose wealth and gender had previously made them immune to it - & therefore blind to it - before. We understand that when someone feels they can crush you with force, they will find so many other ways to violate you.
![t27-p8](images/thread27/t27-p8.jpg)
![t27-p9](images/thread27/t27-p9.jpg)
![t27-p10](images/thread27/t27-p10.jpg)
Our art here links sexual violence to the physical hits & verbal abuse we've suffered at the hands of the HKPF in the last 5 mths. The shot to the eye, the one to the heart, being called an 'object'... Sexual assault has become just another weapon in the HKPF's arsenal.
![t27-p11](images/thread27/t27-p11.jpg)
![t27-p12](images/thread27/t27-p12.jpg)
![t27-p13](images/thread27/t27-p13.jpg)
But we're uncowed - our art shows many going 'fuck it'; we'll keep telling the world the truth. #metoo is abt power asymmetries but we must not wait until we're at the powerless end of a dynamic to empathise. We must believe victims now.
We speak up, we wise up, we rise up.

# The Weight of Words
*Oct 12 2019*
Language has become another frontline of HKers' resistance. Canto and trad. Ch. are used almost exclusively in our art, & increasingly complex new words are created to describe increasingly complex political realities.
![t28-p1](images/thread28/t28-p1.jpg)
Primer for those abroad. HKers *speak* Cantonese, distinct from Mandarin, lingua franca w/in China. HKers *write* in trad. Ch., while mainlanders use simplified Ch. What's written in trad. Ch. is seldom verbatim what we speak - lexicon & grammar differs... it's complicated.
![t28-p2](images/thread28/t28-p2.jpg)
![t28-p3](images/thread28/t28-p3.jpg)
But HKers hv embraced our complicated language & weaponised it as a protest tool. Following the☂Mvmt, majority of current mvmt's art are written in trad. Ch. &/or written in verbatim Cantonese. It is our way of proudly announcing we hv a distinct voice, a distinct identity.
![t28-p4](images/thread28/t28-p4.jpg)
![t28-p5](images/thread28/t28-p5.jpg)
![t28-p6](images/thread28/t28-p6.jpg)
We took it to some extremes. An effort to confound mainland 'spies' was to use Kongish, spelling out Canto words in Eng & throw in some Eng words for giggles. Problem: Canto has 9 tones - 'si' can take on at least 9 meanings. It indeed confounded & the effort lasted <48hrs 🤣
