Hong Kong says to vote, or else

We bring you this message from Hong Kong because the Chinese Communist Party wants the world to forget how it crushed the autonomy it promised the territory. Authorities on Monday issued arrest warrants for two pro-democracy exiles who used social media to urge Hong Kong people to boycott the mock parliamentary elections scheduled for December.

Former pro-democracy lawmaker Ted Hui urged Hong Kongers to protest by voting white, and former district councilor Yau Man-chun urged a boycott. The two now face multiple charges for “engagement [in] illegal behavior of inducing another person not to vote, or casting an invalid vote, through activity in public during the election period, ”authorities said on Monday. The penalty can be up to three years in prison.
