Interview with Mainland Girls who firmly spoke in abusive attacks: I am not afraid, just afraid that they can not hear different voices (source: Netease video)
[Global Times-World Wide Web] When I was on stage, I was more calm in the face of the chokes and words of some local students. I even continued to talk to them with a laugh afterwards. Zhang Ting, a Mainland girl who has become popular on the Internet recently, said in an interview with Global Times-Global Network reporters that she was still resolutely completing her rational speech in the face of abusive attacks from local students at an exchange meeting of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Because it is precisely after I expressed the most basic principles of democracy and freedom, namely, rule of law, no rules and no square circle, that they are still there. I feel sad for our non-local students to obstruct their basic right of self-expression in public and in live pictures. So behind that smile, I was sad and funny.

In view of the current spread of street violence on campus in Hong Kong, Duan Chongzhi, President of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, invited students and alumni of the University to have an open dialogue on October 10. During the dialogue, Zhang Ting was drawn to speak, but when she spoke in Mandarin, she was abused by a large number of radical students. Zhang Ting firmly completed her rational expression in a chaotic situation. If not for my strong heart, I would be afraid to face your choking now. You are always condemning the mistakes of others, but you have never thought that it is you who are destroying the rule of law, freedom and democracy in Hong Kong. Her remarks won applause from many Mainland students present, and overnight blazed the Internet in Mainland China.

Zhang Tings memory of the 10th evening of the Global Times-Global Network still seemed calm and firm. She told reporters that although the onstage attacks continued at that time, she did not feel afraid for a moment. On the contrary, the louder the choke was, the more she wanted to express her voice and opinions. The only thing I care about is that their voices overwhelm my voices, she said, fearing that such different voices would not be heard by more radical local students.
After that night, Zhang Ting said that she would like to tell CUHK and more young people in Hong Kong one more sentence: We respect your freedom of speech, but also ask you to respect the freedom of speech of people with different political opinions... I also hope that you can express your appeal in a compliance manner and through the normal way of appeal. For example, the girl who claimed that she had been sexually assaulted by the police at the principals meeting that day could complain to the police or solve it through a lawyer, but she chose to express in such a way on such an occasion that it actually threatens the principal.
In recent years, the social unrest in Hong Kong has penetrated deeply into the major campuses. The Chinese University of Hong Kong is one of the most affected. At one time, it was nicknamed violent because a large number of students participated actively in street violence. Not long ago, a Mainland girl from CUHK hung a national flag in her dormitory window on October 1 to share the festival atmosphere. However, she was immediately attacked and harassed by several local students in Hong Kong, and her dormitory was damaged.
Zhang Ting told reporters that the study and life of non-local students in Zhongdali have been greatly affected, such as the suspension of classes due to the outage of the subway and the non-opening of catering facilities on campus at night. But these are all situations that we can overcome, and the more serious is the psychological impact and injury that we all suffer. She described the campus as a kind of black terror, and various posters can be seen everywhere in the campus. Non-local students want to speak out about it, but they are afraid of being bottom-up and attacked. She told reporters that the former undergraduate who was flying the national flag had left school because he felt that his personal safety was greatly threatened.
Nevertheless, Zhang Ting still hopes that mainland students in Hong Kong will not react too fiercely because of anger and fear. I dont want to exacerbate our antagonism with the local students in Hong Kong. The purpose of my speech that day was not to be fussy. She told the Global Times - Global Network reporter that she wanted to tell all mainland students in Hong Kong, The more difficult this is, the more we dont give up communication and communication. Through our own communication and communication, we should let local students know more about mainland students and their motherland.
At the same time, she also hopes that CUHK can do a good job of de-politicizing the campus. As President Duan said, universities should be places for learning, not for political competition, so schools should do a better job ofde-politicizingcampus. She said, for example, schools should clear political slogans all over the campus, ask teachers to be objective and neutral, and more importantly, when students violate school rules or even touch the law, schools should tell them that these are wrong, not indulgent.
What she wants most to persuade and communicate with is her peers in Hong Kong. Many local young people always say that we dont know Hong Kong. Not so. We not only understand, but also have our own judgment... On the contrary, I would like them to know more about their motherland, visit the mainland more, look at the mainland with a development perspective, and understand that the mainland used to be different from the present. She said that if young people in Hong Kong feel that there is something wrong with the Mainland, they hope they can make some contributions. Together, we will make our motherland better and better.
I also hope that the young people in Hong Kong can figure out what they want in the end. Is it reallyspeculating Hong Kong? She asked. Perhaps these young people can rethink what kind of Hong Kong they want. They can also think about it from a different angle. Dont just stand in Hong Kong and think about fragrance. Instead, Hong Kong will step out of its position, stand in a more international perspective, stand in the context of the Sino-US trade war, and rethink Hong Kongs problems. Perhaps they will get a new solution.

Duan Chongzhi, President of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, has an open dialogue on recent social events and alumni
[Global Times-Global Network Report] In view of the spread of street violence on campus in Hong Kong, Duan Chongzhi, President of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, invited students and alumni to have an open dialogue on October 10. During the dialogue, Duan Chongzhi said that there have been many acts of vandalism on campus and public goods recently, and that bullying of students with different opinions has also occurred in CUHK. He felt very sad and hoped that students would stop the violence. At the same time, he said that the school was deeply distressed by the recent arrest of some middle school students, who would be provided with legal aid. However, Duan Chongzhi was repeatedly interrupted by shouts from radical students on the floor during his speech. Some students also abused him roughly and shot him in the face with a laser pen. Dialogue was almost impossible, and there was chaos on the ground.
Global Times - Global Network reporters saw at the scene that the students were almost full of Shao Yifu Hall where dialogue was held. Many radical students wore masks or even masks. Others held up protest cards and laser pens. When Duan Chongzhi persuaded the students to look calmly at the situation and express their appeals peacefully, they were aroused, shouted and applauded by the radical students, as well as assaulted by the students with loud insults, calling them Duan Dog and the shame of Zhongda.
During the dialogue, a middle-aged alumnus was chosen to speak. He said that he was very sad to see the recent violence on CUHK campus and some students unreasonable and intelligent criticism and abuse of the principal, and believed that young students should respect the principal, the country and Hong Kong. But as soon as he spoke a few words, he was interrupted by loud shouts and abuses from radical students on the ground. Some students even stood up and sang songs from the demonstration in order to stop the alumni from speaking. Ultimately, the alumni ended his speech in extreme confusion and hostility.
When another young girl spoke in Mandarin and expressed her hope that local students in Hong Kong would respect their freedom of expression, she was abused and abused by radical students on the scene, such as fuck you and your mother is dead. But she firmly completed her speech.

Many Mainland students attending the dialogue meeting saw the principal and his classmates insulted and angry. A middle school student named Joyce angrily told the Global Times-Global Network reporter that these radical students were not communicating at all. As soon as the principal opened his mouth, they began to abuse him. If they agree with their ideas, they will cheer and if they do not, they will curse people. They are simply a group of madmen. She also said that many masked students asked ridiculous questions. They asked the principal what to do without the subway affecting the class? Didnt they smash the subway? They were going to strike again, and schools were not allowed to deduct their credits. Thats ridiculous!
Natalie, another mainland student studying pedagogy at high school, told the Global Times-Global. com that these radical students are double-labeled, they can express their demands freely, but not allow others to refute them. They can abuse them freely when we express our patriotism and our demands for guaranteeing everyones safety and normal learning life. I hope they can find out what is the freedom expression of appeal, is educated rational expression, not casual abuse and beating people. On the spot, Global Times - Global Network reporters noticed that many mainland students left early before the end of the dialogue due to fear of retaliation and malicious ending. Some students told reporters that although they had anticipated this situation, they had no idea that Hong Kong students were so radical and crazy that they felt very unsafe to study in CUHK.
