Interview: ‘I Was Arrested at a National Day Protest in Hong Kong’

Kelvin (R), who was among 87 people arrested on Oct. 1, as thousands of protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong in defiance of a police ban, shows injuries to his hand (L) sustained when he was shoved to the groundRFA

Hong Kong police made at least 87 arrests on Oct. 1, as thousands of protesters took to the streets in defiance of a police ban on a protest march in support of 12 activists detained by the China Coast Guard as they tried to flee to democratic Taiwan. Among the arrestees was a man who was surrounded by riot police as he was smoking a cigarette on the street. In an incident filmed by the media, the man was later shoved to the ground, his glasses flying off his face. The man, who gave only the nickname Kelvin, spoke to RFA’s Cantonese Service about his experiences in police custody:

I told the riot police they should either charge me or arrest me. One of them snatched away my phone. I told them if they wanted to arrest me, they should arrest me, not rob me of my personal property. I said I would give them my belongings for safekeeping if they completed a normal arrest procedure.

I was very upset that they just stole my personal property without going through proper procedures.

I told them: “I don’t have a problem if you want to give me a ticket or arrest me, but I want you to do it legally.”

[The police proceeded to arrest Kelvin, who later asked for medical treatment for injuries sustained during the arrest.]

After I arrived at the hospital, I was told by a riot police officer I didn’t know and hadn’t seen before that the officers had used excessive force, and that he didn’t see any reason to arrest me.

He told me: “How about we just make a symbolic arrest. Your personal belongings or phone won’t be confiscated and you won’t be cuffed when you go onto the ward.”

When we got to the triage station at Ruttonjee Hospital, the riot police couldn’t undo the cable ties [used to secure my hands]. My hands were bruised and bleeding.

Then they got very nervous and started asking around for scissors, asking a woman working in the emergency room if they could borrow some. They managed to cut it open, but I was left with cuts from the scissors on my right and left hands.

They are supposed to be professionally trained to use appropriate force and restraining methods, but they couldn’t even get the cable tie open. I think it was unreasonable of them to injure an arrested person trying to get the cable tie open.

This was totally an arbitrary arrest. As members of the public, we have no control over arbitrary arrests by police, who can arrest as many people as they like. But there’s no way to press charges against them after you have been arrested, so what’s the point [of complaining]?

I think people who have acted against their conscience will be punished one day.

After the video was released, I was asked if I was afraid of getting into more trouble with police.

I would like to say that from the first day I took to the streets, I was expecting to be arrested. I am not afraid.

[Police later released Kelvin and three others arrested at the same time on bail. They are required to report to local police stations this month.]

How to identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.

Beware of Fake News or Fake Photos/Videos Relating to Communal Hatred

Always check the fact checking sites if you have some doubts about the authenticity of any information or picture.

The Same Method Applies to You Tube Videos Check the Source the credibility of the Source.To Check Fake You Tube Videos Check and Recheck the sources. Does the person have the legal right to the video posted? Did that person capture the video? Whether it has been altered?

But due to advancement of technology we can not really wipe out fake news.According to experts advent of  Artificial Intelligence(AI) some companies small or big one developing  technologies that can  lay digitally created script to anybody's voice  even words,sentences never said by the person.Even they a.re developing a technology which can create fake video footage,images,audios like originals.So be cautious! Rumour-mongers are active everywhere whether in physical world or cyber world.

Without evidence or with fake evidence, a conspiracy theory will always remain a conspiracy theory.
