A true Filipino don't hides under a Vietnamese identity. Shame on you!

And you ?

Are you a Pekinese Pincher or an American Poodle ?

What you don't understand? Your incapable government screw up big time on the rescue of the hostag ...

Your incapable security guards on TNM-Square could have blocked the car which intetially run into a crowd of tourist killing several people, among them a Filipino.

No ?

Oh, I forgot, it is not their job, they are only looking with sharp eyes to identify possible protestors.

HELPERS – Another Domestic Maid Tortured by HK Employer Flees; Hospitalised.

Erwiana Sulistayaniangsih, a foreign domestic helper from Indonesia, fled Hong Kong last week after being beaten by her employer in Tsueng Kwan O for months on end.

Indonesian NGO ‘Asosiasi Tenaga Kerja Indonesia di Hong Kong‘ (ATKI) said that Erwiana came to the city last May and was beaten daily for 8 months with sticks and hangers for performing poorly at her job. She was released when she was no longer able to walk and was allowed to return home with HK$100. Throughout her ordeal, she was warned not to speak to any other Indonesians.

The name and address of her former employer have been published online as the photos went viral amongst HK’s Indonesian community.

Ms Sringatin from the Indonesian Migrant Workers Union said that.”Everyday they beat her, they poured hot water on her hands and feet. The employer said she was lazy. She tried to contact the agency in Indonesia but the agency didn’t do anything. They asked her to continue her job…”

Upon arriving in Java last week, Erwian’s legs were bleeding. She posted photos of her condition to her helper friends back in Hong Kong and her parents sent her to hospital where she apparently remains now.

Her local employment agent, Chan’s Asia Recruitment, have denied ignoring her complaints, according to ATKI. Officers at HK Immigration asked if she wanted to press charges, but Erwian denied being beaten and said she simply wished to go home.

Hundreds of migrant workers gathered at the Indonesian Consulate at 4pm yesterday demonstrating their solidarity and protesting against domestic helper abuse in Hong Kong. Tonight, local NGO Open Door will gather in Tseung Kwan O to speak to residents and express sympathy for Erwiana.

Leo Tang from the HKCTU said, “This case highlights that the live-in rule is open to abuse. It needs to be a choice between employer and employee”. Today’s photos emerged months after another case of torture against a domestic helper made headlines around the world.

A 2012 Mission for Migrant Workers survey found that 58% of workers had faced verbal abuse, 18% had suffered physical abuse and 6% had been sexually abused.

Football hooliganism in Hong Kong? Filipino fans claim racial abuse

Football match at Mong Kok Stadium turns not-so-friendly

Hong Kong football fans were accused of racial abuse, including yelling “you’re all just slaves”, as an international friendly turned not-so-friendly at Mong Kok Stadium on Tuesday night.

Social media sites were alive on Wednesday morning with Philippines fans accusing a section of the Hong Kong supporters of “calling us a slave nation”, throwing bottles at mostly women and children and booing the Philippine national anthem.

One Filipino called it a “traumatic experience”, while another said she was reduced to tears.

One expatriate fan said he was disgusted by the Hong Kong supporters, who were further incensed as Hong Kong went on to lose the game 1-0.

“At the end of the game there were ugly scenes when the Philippines side tried to celebrate with their fans and were subjected to such abuse - verbal, gestures and physical - as they were pelted with bottles and other objects,” the Englishman told the South China Morning Post on Wednesday morning.

“Then I was even more disgusted to hear some local guys shouting to the group of Philippine men, women and children, who were happily celebrating, that they were 'all just slaves'...and making obscene gestures to them.”

He said they also booed loudly throughout the playing of the national anthem and it was not reciprocated by the many Filipinos during the Chinese anthem, as they stood with reasonable respect.
