From henceforth, the Hong Kong Free Press will accept donations in the form of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. This is a spell-bounding move, as thousands are protesting against the anti-extradition bill and mainland rule in Hong Kong. For the past 10 weeks, people have never ceased to raise their voices.
You can donate to the Free Press via BitPay, and the chief editor is planning on bringing in other ways to facilitate P2P transactions. The ones in-charge in Beijing [essentially the Communist men and women who don’t believe in free speech] want citizens of Hong Kong to be extradited to the Chinese mainland when convicted. This gave rise to protests which have since spun out of control, as the government refuses to meet the demands of the people.
These are a few conditions placed by the pro-democracy freedom fighters:
- Withdrawal of the proposed extradition bill
- The resignation of Carrie Lam, who is the Chief Executive
- Actions of the police and army need to be scrutinized, and sadists should be punished after a proper inquiry
- those who have been imprisoned must not be deprived off their human rights
Bitcoin has always stood against the government, being the largest decentralized cryptocurrency known to mankind. Tom Grundy, who lead the HKFP has thanked those who have contributed to this great cause and hopes that humanity will be victorious before corruption encompasses Hong Kong.
