Lausan 流傘 - Sharing decolonial left perspectives on Hong Kong
September 17, 2019 7:09 AM   Subscribe

Lausan 流傘 is a collective of writers, researchers, activists and artists from Hong Kong and its diasporas, engaging with the city’s political struggle.

From articles on Hong Kong's migrant workers to the translation of the housewives' letter for the movement, Lausan covers Hong Kong from a "decolonial left perspective", asking all of us to reimagine a future free of Chinese and Western imperalism.

Ooooh thank you. Excited to read through everything when I get a chance. While not a decolonial left perspective, from what I could tell, I used to read the Occupy Central posts at EastSouthWestNorth but they haven't posted since 2018.

I absolutely needed to read this this evening, having just landed back in the city from the Mid-Autumn break. Their about page is inspiring and I can't wait to read more. Thanks for posting.
