Has anyone looked into this "Freedom HKG" organization that bought the ads?

Doing a simple "WHOIS" search online (FreedomHKG.net) shows that it was registered June 26

The crowdfunding page was established on June 24

My Chinese is not the best, but on their crowdfunding page, I believe it asks not to donate via PayPal because of anti money laundering preventing fund transfer.
On the

, it says funds collected via credit card require 7 days clearing time before deposit.
Also on the crowdfunding page, it says that they were buying NYT full page ad for $200,000.

The ad was published by June 27

How is it possible that the ad would be published so quickly?
If the money was instantly collected, the earliest day funds could be transferred is July 1
Furthermore, I imagine that NYT requires approval and payment ahead of time for an ad, which would mean it would need to be done at least the 25th (This is a logical deduction since the paper printed on the 27th would be printed on the 26th, which is even before the website was established) This doesn't even include the time it would take to design the ad.

Now it could be possible that the payment was made before the crowdfunding, but what kind of "ordinary group of volunteers" (according to SCMP site:

) would have $200,000 lying around?

My research did not include looking at "LIHKG" in detail due to my lack of Chinese proficiency, so perhaps I missed something there.

Anyhow, TL;DR, the amount of money and speed of publishing almost guarantees state actors being involved.
Appears my 2019 analysis was correct

So much for unsafe city, and everyone is leaving. "Democracy and freedom" sound very hollow indeed.

Hong Kong came in as the eighth safest city in the world with 78.6 points, according to the Safe Cities Index 2021 conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit.

The survey is sponsored by NEC Corporation and is based on the fourth iteration of the index, which ranks 60 cities across 76 indicators including digital, health, infrastructure, personal and environmental security.

Copenhagen in Denmark scored 82.4 points to come in first as the safest city, followed by Toronto in Canada with 82.2 points.

Hong Kong ranked eighth on the list with 78.6 points. The city topped the list on infrastructure security at 93.4 points and ranked third on health security with 84 points.

Although Hong Kong's overall ranking jumped to the eighth from 20th in 2019, the score was still lower than the score of 83.7 points achieved in 2019.

Hong Kong scored 70.1 points to rank 21st on digital security, while Beijing scored 53.3 points and ranked 45th on the list. As for personal security, Hong Kong scored 70.4 points to rank 21st, marking a decrease of 21.5 points.

The report also listed other key findings, like income and transparency, as factors that remain strongly correlated with higher index scores, and noted that while most cities have strong environmental policies, they must now deliver results.

Let's keep in mind that this news was from "The Economist". This study is a mish mash of mumbo jumbo talking points straight out of the more delusional parts of western academia. The criteria they used are digital, health, infrastructure, personal and environmental security. When people speak of and think of what is safe, they mean safe from attacks of some kind or other situations harmful to their well being. This is reminiscent of the Global Health Security Index, a ranking of countries most prepared for global pandemics.

Some cockroach familes are returning, various reasons - can't some work, victims of discrimination, ran out of money etc. Fuck I hope it's just a minority of them that are heading back.
Apparently some parents who took their kids out from school in Hong Kong before immigrating are now calling the schools back to ask if their kids could re-enroll.

My parents just flew back to Hong Kong after spending the past month with me. Their inbound flight to Heathrow was a cockroach infestation, and they were shocked to find that their outbound flight had a sizeable cockroach representation. There was a dude dressed as a woman on the flight, and my dad is pretty sure he's done so to evade prosecution going through Hong Kong immigration.

Oh how I wish their MSM would report this with the same fanfare headlines they gave to those used condoms arriving in the U.K. somehow I think I'm going to have a long wait.

In my golf club, and college where I teach, golfing members and colleagues were giving me hard time about how wonderful Great Britain is by offering places for all these used condoms to come in. Blah blah blah. (Because BBC did a report on it).

Of course, being diplomatic, and not wishing to alienate myself, (after all, I've got to work and play with these people). I just diplomatically shrug and say it'll all come out in the wash.

Well here it is. Come on BBC. Do the honourable thing. But somehow I doubt they will.

The news coming out from Hong Kong just gets better and better. And the western MSM just not reporting these used condoms anymore, now their server their purpose, and will serve their time all on their own.
