Cyberpunk Dystopias in Real Time: Hong Kong #cyberpunk

As any fan of cyberpunk fiction is undoubtedly aware, the tech-saturated, semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong was a significant inspiration to first-wave cyberpunk authors.

Here is Hong Kong today. In this series of dramatic, disturbing photos, taken of the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill protests last year by French photographer Rémy Soubanère, show a dystopian HK that even the original cyberpunk Fab 4 (Gibson, Sterling, Shirley, Rucker) might not have been able to imagine.

Hong Kong, 2019 © Rémy Soubanère — From “Frontliners” photo series. This series shows “the braves” as the frontline demonstrators call themselves, police and all those who take part of these near everyday fights. — Full series at: http://remysoubanere.com/hk — Context. The 2019 Hong Kong protests, also known as Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement or Anti-ELAB Movement, are an ongoing series of demonstrations in Hong Kong, which began with the aim to oppose the introduction of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill proposed by the Hong Kong government. If enacted, the bill would allow local authorities to detain and extradite criminal fugitives who are wanted in territories with which Hong Kong does not have extradition agreements, including Taiwan and mainland China. People were concerned that the bill would subject Hong Kong citizens and visitors to the mainland Chinese jurisdiction, undermining the autonomy of the regionand its civil liberties. As the protests progressed, the protesters laid out five key demands, including over the alleged police misconduct and democratic reform which has stagnated since the 2014 Umbrella Revolution. The Chinese central government has stated it is “the worst crisis in Hong Kong” since the handover in 1997. — Prints at: remysoubanere@gmail.com — #hongkongprotests #hongkong #hongkongprotest #standwithhongkong #documentary #photojournalism #hkprotest #nochinaextradition #hongkongprotests2019 #FreedomHKG #sonya7riii #capturestreets #teargas #protest #freedomhk #timeless_streets #hongkonger #humanistphotography #streetphotography #socialphotography #today_street #protest #reframinghk #capturehongkong #visualhongkong #reportagespotlight #antielabhk #antiextraditionlaw #revolutionofourtimes #photojournalism2020

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
