Hong Kong’s beleaguered democracy camp will continue to fight Beijing’s crackdown on the city’s political freedoms, prominent dissident Joshua Wong said Friday after he and 11 other activists were barred from standing for election. Dressed in a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words “They can’t kill us all”, 23-year-old Wong slammed authorities for disqualifying some of the city’s best-known democracy activists from standing in September’s legislative elections.

Alan Martofel is the CEO of Feminist Apparel, a T-shirt company run out of a New Jersey strip mall.
After Donald Trump’s election, a number of Feminist Apparel campaigns and products went viral—and its shirts were a common sight at women’s marches. It was a Hashtag Resistance success story, with 360,000 followers on social media and a growing staff.
But this past July Feminist Apparel became the focus of a global Internet shitstorm, when Alan fired all but one of his employees.
It started five years ago, when Alan wrote a Facebook post admitting to having ”grinded up on women on buses and at concerts without their consent” and once putting “a woman’s hand on my dick while she was sleeping.”
He cataloged his sins, apologized, and declared the creation of Feminist Apparel his “humble attempt” at penance.
The post was public — and has since been deleted. But his employees had no idea. And when they discovered it, they were furious.
Alan had other ideas. Feminist Apparel would remain in business. But in an email to staff, he informed 9 of his 10 employees that they had been fired.
Feminist Apparel’s ex-employees say that the truth about the company’s founding is only part of their problem with Alan.

Struggling to find work, a group of Mexicans deported from the United States have created a new T-shirt business, selling garments featuring slogans that denounce President Trump’s immigration policies.
Police are looking for a jogger who appeared to push a woman in front of a London bus during a bizarre unprovoked attack.
The London Metropolitan Police on Tuesday released CCTV footage of the dramatic incident, which took place on May 5 around 7.40 a.m.
The 33-year-old victim was walking across Put ney Bridge toward the underground station at the time.
As can be seen in the video, the jogger — in a light grey T-shirt and dark blue shorts — pushed the victim off the pavement as they crossed each other’s paths.
Luckily for the victim, an oncoming bus managed to swerve out the way to avoid a crash. The victim received minor injuries, and Putney police praised the “superb quick reactions of the bus driver.”
Fifteen minutes after the incident, the jogger encountered the victim again when he returned to the bridge on his run. The victim tried to speak to him, but he did not acknowledge her and continued jogging, police said.
Police described the jogger as a white man in his early- to mid-30s, with brown eyes, and short brown hair. They have appealed for the jogger to come forward to speak to them
