The time of writing , just black civil rights leaders in Washington Post , “I have a dream ” speech 50 anniversary. Two years after the speech , the U.S. Congress passed a bill were to revoke the policy of apartheid , and let the nation’s blacks have equal voting rights .
Of course, not only the great mission of a speech can accomplish , but by countless people come to fight long-term disobedience . In 1955, the United States there are laws in Montgomery , when the bus seat is low, blacks should give seats to whites ; when even the stations are insufficient, the blacks would get off ! One day, a man named Parkes (RosaParks) lady with three black passengers were requested by the driver seat to whites , three seat , except Ms. Parks reluctant to obey , was eventually arrested.
The matter immediately trigger dozens of local black leaders to discuss the follow-up protest actions . They elected the Reverend Martin Luther King , led by the young and lead them on the unjust apartheid laws, carried out wave after wave of civil disobedience . Such as the maintenance of the bus boycott movement more than a year , but also to mobilize blacks to whites only allowed to use the library and churches and other local sit-in protest .
Over the years, violent repression by the government , who jailed numerous , but instead touched more people to come out and join the peace protest . Finally , just 50 years ago today, 25 million people to protest in Washington, DC , the sense of peace and immense power but firmly so that Congress finally withdrew , the achievements of many people dream of equal rights .
Back to Hong Kong today , and put forward a Professor Dai Yaoting “peaceful accounted for in ” civil disobedience movement. Some people criticized the proposal is too ” radical ” , why should rattling , not with the Government and Beijing ” have close ” ? Martin Luther King wrote in a letter from Birmingham Jail , may be able to provide you with the answer –
“You may ask: ” Why fight ? Why sit-ins, marches ? Negotiating it not better ? ” You’re right, of course, to negotiations – negotiations initiated protest is precisely the purpose of the masses through nonviolent struggle is to manufacture crisis , cohesion tension , forcing people to face long refused to negotiate our demands , opening the door to negotiations . ”
We do not need everyone when the Martin Luther King to lead the democratic movement ; But Everyone in Hong Kong to face the choice of Ms. Parks . We are sitting in the same seat that frame to give real estate hegemony , Liang pink people on buses . When false introduced universal suffrage , you have only two choices: To defeat injustice exit , or for justice insisted disobedience ? Your choice will rewrite the history of Hong Kong .
