A local girl from Hong Kong has called on her peers to speak out against violence as demonstrations in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region continue, striking a heavy blow to Hong Kong's economy and social stability, Guangzhou Daily reported on August 24, 2019.

"I am writing this letter because I don't think silence will help Hong Kong today. Every Hong Kong citizen with courage and a sense of justice should stand up and speak out," wrote Zheng Junzhi, who turned 18 this year.

"Both 'Hong Kong Independence' activists and anti-China forces have underestimated the central government's determination to maintain social stability in Hong Kong," Zheng wrote.

Zheng mentioned that some classmates asked her to go to the demonstration, but she didn't think this was appropriate behavior. In her opinion, the task of students is to study, to cultivate independent thinking, and to contribute to society. She tried to persuade her classmates not to interfere with their studies.

Zheng Junzhi and her family have taken part in several activities to support the police, including sending paintings to police officers. On the launch of a family fun day for Chinese companies in Hong Kong on Aug. 24, she showed off her latest painting depicting a pair of hands hold up "Hong Kong" and three police officers, with the text "Thank you, Sir! Support the police!"

As for the retaliation which might ensue from anti-China forces, she showed no fear.

"There's nothing wrong with what I'm doing, so I'm not afraid."

Zheng added that in the future, she hopes to become a teacher and pass on her thoughts and feelings of patriotism and love for Hong Kong to her students.

This summer, Zheng's family visited Yangshuo in Guilin, southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. In her letter, Zheng wrote of the beautiful scenery and hospitable people in Guilin.

"I would like to say to the young people who took part in the demonstration in Hong Kong to know more about the history of our motherland. Go back to our motherland to see and feel its rapid development. Don't be fooled by bad people or you may have regret for the rest of the life," said Zheng. (Source: People's Daily)

This little girl living under 'One Country Two Systems',  must be longing to be under Mainland system, not Hong Kong system!

I don't think so,        because H.K. is part of the Mainland, it been so before the Colonizers arrived and it'll be as long as there is a Middle Kingdom...
   
                Aside that, I'm rather surprised about the negative attitude you got about this person.
After all, defending the Motherland of ALL Chinese is a very noble way to express one feeling...

   Have a nice day,

You've misunderstood me!  My reading of her piece is that she prefers the Mainland system which is peaceful, plenty of opportunities for all, young n old, with the State making efforts to spread the wealth around;  HK system is almost purely capitalist with market forces determining their life.  And Yes, HK is indeed a part of China, no doubt about that, but it has a different system from Mainland, that's why there is 'One Country Two Systems'!

"because H.K. is part of the Mainland"  How does that work out ? Aren't there two systems - one on the mainland, one in HK ? Otherwise you might as well say that the mainland is part of Hong Kong and HK has been the most modern and progressive force leading the rest of the country for many years.

Haven't you visited any of the glitzy shopping districts in major Chinese cities ? For example, take a stroll along Nanjing Lu in Shanghai and I think you will see far more examples of capitalism than socialism at work. The stock exchange in the same city also is an intrinsic part of the way market forces influence the economy there, much the same as Hong Kong. I haven't seen any of the shops selling items made of gold making any efforts to "spread the wealth around".
