Hong Kong people are most impressed by the news of the death of former party leader Jiang Zemin

The Xinhua News Agency of the Communist Party of China announced on November 30 that the former President of the Communist Party of China, Jiang Zemin, died of leukemia and multiple organ failure on the 30th at the age of 96.

Jiang Zemin visited Hong Kong four times before his death. For Hong Kong citizens, the most impressive thing is that he once angrily scolded Hong Kong reporters in Beijing in 2000, “Too simple! Sometimes naive!” (too simple, sometimes naive).

The incident took place on October 27, 2000. Jiang Zemin met Tung Chee-hwa, the then chief executive of Hong Kong, in Zhongnanhai. At that time, Tung Chee-hwa, the first term of office of Tung, was about to expire, and rumors of his re-election were rampant.

Hong Kong journalists who followed Tung Chee-hwa to Beijing asked Jiang Zemin whether he supported Tung Chee-hwa’s re-election, and the other party responded “Yes” in Cantonese. However, when Zhang Baohua, a cable TV reporter present, asked whether the CCP had “appointed” Tung Chee-hwa as chief executive, Jiang Zemin immediately “changed his face” and approached the press booth and reprimanded him loudly: “You journalists should learn from it. I have experienced many battles… the media You must also improve your knowledge level, you can run faster than Western reporters, but ask questions, too simple! Sometimes naive!”

The incident once became the focus of news in Hong Kong, and it is still talked about from time to time.

In addition, since Jiang Zemin resigned from office in 2004, his health has been the focus of the outside world. News of his critical illness and even his death has been repeatedly reported. Among them, ATV’s false report of his death was the most sensational.

In 2011, Jiang Zemin’s absence from the CCP’s 90th anniversary party celebration sparked speculation that he was critically ill. On July 6 of the same year, ATV reported Jiang Zemin’s death from liver tumors on Hong Kong and Taiwan’s “Six O’clock News“, which immediately became the focus of public opinion at home and abroad. However, Xinhua News Agency issued an article at noon the next day stating that the news of Jiang Zemin’s death was purely a rumor. ATV immediately withdrew the report and issued a statement to apologize.

When the “white paper revolution” broke out in the mainland, the CCP officially announced the death of Jiang Zemin, which aroused heated discussions among Hong Kong people.

Some netizens said, “Because of the closure of the city, the organ harvesting was cleared, so the rescue was lost.”, “We will spend alcohol and drink tonight.”

Another netizen pointed out, “Wu Yifan will step out of Jiang Zemin if it doesn’t work, it’s a great way to divert attention!”

Lawyer Sang Pu, a senior current affairs commentator, told this station that Jiang Zemin was extremely corrupt during his lifetime. The Shanghai gang he surrounded did many evils and played a very corrupt role in the entire Chinese politics. During Jiang Zemin’s administration, there were also numerous violations of human rights, “the suppression of Falun Gong is one of them.”

Combined with the recent “white paper revolution” in mainland China that has aroused global attention and solidarity, Samp said, “I believe that Jiang Zemin left this world with lingering fears, because a lot of dissatisfaction with the Communist Party has surfaced.”

The fire tragedy in Urumqi, Xinjiang ignited China‘s largest civil protest since June 4th. People took to the streets with blank papers in their hands to protest the CCP’s three-year inhumane blockade policy. The ongoing ferment of the protests has attracted the attention of the outside world and has been described as a “blank paper revolution”. On the 29th, 52 Hong Kong people’s groups from all over the world issued a joint statement in Chinese and English, expressing solidarity with the Chinese protesters and calling on all walks of life to unite and oppose the CCP’s tyranny.

The statement stated: “As Hong Kong people, we stand with our friends who are fighting for freedom and justice from the CCP. We understand the courage and sacrifice required to face the CCP, and we will do our best to support our friends.”

The statement stated, “From the fire in Urumqi to the forced labor at the Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou, the CCP’s arbitrary and unreasonable anti-epidemic measures have caused many victims. The problems of the leaders and the system have been exposed, and demonstrations have followed everywhere under the CCP’s rule. spread.”

The statement continued, “Since the Sitong Bridge incident, the voice for change has never been clearer,” emphasizing that “at this moment, cross-border solidarity is more important than ever, and we should all be united.”

The statement concluded, “In 2019, Hong Kong people took to the streets with the motto of ‘Be Water’ (Be Water). Today, when millions of people from all over the world unite to form a river, courage and faith will surely be greater. echo.”
