Occupy Central Founders Say They Will Surrender to Police
Hong Kong’s Occupy Central movement that seeks
a general election has lasted for 66 days, but still has failed to
achieve its primary goal.
On Dec.2, the three founders of the movement wrote
an open letter to Hong Kong residents, saying they will
surrender to police on 3rd,
hoping to stop violence and take responsibility by themselves.
The three said the move is to take legal responsibility
and show respect for the rule of law.
The letter says that, surrender “is not a sign of cowardice".
“It shows our courage to honor our commitment…
It’s not a failure but a complaint against
the government’s indifference."
The open letter condemned Hong Kong Police for violent
suppression against protesters in the past two weeks.
The three founders said it was sad to see youngsters
bleeding when defending against batons with their body.
The letter also says that a government that has to protect its
power with batons and violence has become unreasonable.
For the sake of the occupiers’ safety, for the sake of our
original intention of love and peace,
the letter urges students to retreat from occupied areas and
transform the movement into other modes.
