WATCH: Hong Kong Protesters Make ‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’ Their Anthem
Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong protesters, fighting for judicial autonomy and protesting a Beijing edict to transport accused criminals to mainland China for trial and incarceration sing and sway together, “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord.”
Their spirit of determined solidarity grows by the day, even as their beautiful city is besieged by hundreds of thousands of communist Chinese troops that are massed at the Hong Kong border and have infiltrated both the Hong Kong police force and civil service sector.
Pepe the Frog may be their chosen mascot and the American flag their favorite symbol, but now, Hong Kong’s inspirational yearning for freedom has an official anthem as protesters have adopted “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord,” as their common prayer for humanitarian recognition of their struggle against the tyranny of Beijing.
The looming threat of violent invasion and suppression of the Hong Kong protests has most experts predicting a spectacle that could dwarf the carnage and bloodshed of the Tiananmen Square student uprising in 1989 that left 60,000 dead and another 40,000 incarcerated or executed for sympathizing with that movement as People’s Liberation Army soldiers mowed down waves of protesters and ran them over with armored vehicles and tanks.
So far, skirmishes between protesters and police have been episodic and limited in scale. Observers believe Beijing is simply waiting until sufficient numbers of PLA resources are staged in the area in order to quell the uprising with overwhelming force.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has reiterated a message of no compromise regarding an extension of Beijing’s jurisdiction over Hong Kong criminal code and the handling of prisoners and accused criminals via extradition to the Chinese mainland where prisoners are routinely “disappeared,” summarily executed and even placed on life support for the extraction of their valuable organs prior to their death.
He is listening, friends. He hears your cry, just as Abel’s blood cried out from the ground. God bless and shelter those good hearted people of courage, longing to breathe free.
