Do You Hear the People Sing in Hong Kong? (Video)

This song is popular in Hong Kong at the moment, as protesters, mostly students, call for democracy.

It also went viral in the city earlier this year, ahead of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

The little girl is singing in in Cantonese, and the tune is from Les Miserables song Do You Hear the People Sing?


Who Hasn’t Been Woken Up Yet?

I ask who dares say nothing?

I have sworn to guard our city.

I have the right and heart to take our destiny,

Who will keep silent?

Who hasn’t been woken up yet?

Listen to the freedom sounding,

Inspired by conscience to join freedom singing.

Why would a dream still be a dream, and still have to dream again?

To stand up for right over wrong, for truth over lies,

For future generations, we must all keep our eyes open and clear.

No one can make us silent as we watch Hong Kong turning red.

We have our hearts and hands to strive for.

Human is human, we have the right to choose, to decide our destiny.
