Domestic helper abused

HEY!!! We’re really sorry that we haven’t updated the page in a LONG time!!! Sorry about that…my computer has been fucked up for more then a week and finally I got it together. We have some new pictures which I’ll be adding in the next few days. Some strange things have happened in the past few days in Hong Kong which has surprised us:

#1: Abuse of a Domestic Helper (Gong Yan)

We were so happy to hear that a lady was thrown in jail for 3 years for physically and mentally abusing her domestic helper for more then one year. Some of the abuse we still can’t believe – the most serious abuse was in the following form: The boss asked the domestic helper to undress upon which she stomped all over her fracturing the helper’s ribs and other bones. When I read this newspaper article I was shocked and stunned. What could cause one human to act towards another human in such a degrading and evil manner? How could this lady treat her domestic helper as a bag of flesh and bones for her to punch, kick, swear, yell and torment? We’re sad to think that in our modern world things like this can go on without anybody being able to take care of herself. What is even scarier is that there are around 250,000 thousand helpers from the Philippines, Indonesia, China and other surrounding countries who are in Hong Kong working – how many thousands of them must endure the same humiliating life daily? How many of them are too scared to say anything against their bosses? When the maid in the above story had her bones broken and was admitted to the hospital, the boss came to the hospital to see her. She did not come to the hospital to say “sorry” she came to threaten the maid – she told the maid that if she told anyone about this, the boss was going to kill her family back in Indonesia. Can you believe that? We couldn’t…its a sad world we live in.

#2 tomorrow…

Last night’s show

Last night’s show was amazing…thanks to everybody who came to watch us and Fat Job. We were the first two bands to play and we were a little worried that no one was going to be there. But that wasn’t the case…the bar was full before we even finished SOUNDCHECK!? Cool…Alex talked about certain things that have bothered us in the past few days. His point was regarding those people who are posting negative messages on other music websites around Hong Kong about us and what the other hardcore bands in Hong Kong are doing. Everyone is entitled to their views and we all respect that – but if you are going to make a judgment about something then all we ask is to get your FACTS straight. Make sure you know what happened at a certain show before you say something negative about the show – or better yet, at least GO WATCH the show. None of us really think its a big problem, he just felt it was important to bring the subject up. Anyway…thanks to everyone who came to the show last night for making it such a GREAT show. Remember that hardcore is NOT only bands – everyone who is interested in the culture, music and idea is PART of hardcore as well.
