Began in a heavy downpour of rain. Media was waiting for me (Next Magazine) as I arrived. People in out and out of court building heard a message of Protection and freedom for children. Men and women stopped by to give their support. A women told me of a wife who has been beaten and as she is not working but her husband is and she is afraid if she goes to court for a divorce she will lose her children in custody. She is very depressed. I passed on my phone number and the website humanrightchild.org to stay in contact.
3 Police stopped by and asked what I was doing in a park. When they found my reason they said “Oh, human rights for children advocate. No problem, stay until Friday is ok.”
St. James Settlement, a charity of social work stopped by and spoke to street sleepers who sleep in the park at night. They assumed I was homeless and we got into a good discussion over Hong Kong lifestyle for homeless.
Slogan of the day: Uncle hit the children. No, No, No. Children are not animals or robots they are human beings.
Tomorrow Slogan: 8 million dollars and the children have no food. Shame, Shame, Shame.
