First female student protester speaks up against police sexual assault

College student Wu Aoxue(also known as Sonia Ng) was the first demonstrator to speak up and accuse Hong Kong police of sexual assault.

She alleged that she had been subjected to sexual violence at the Kwai Chung Police Station, including being beaten on the chest by a male police officer.

In October this year, she spoke at a meeting at the CUHK, “Did you know that not only me but many others have been subjected to sexual violence? Other arrestees have been subjected to more than one police officer regardless of gender, sexual assault, and abuse.”

During her speech, she removed her mask to encourage the school to take the courage to condemn the police for sexual assault.

She said she got other people’s support in various ways, especially during her detained in the police station, a social worker helped her avoid a ”second-level search request”, which request to take off some clothes and searched by male officials.

Her life attracts public attention after she spoke up for the terrible experience. Her brave actions have made her a target for human flesh search and phone harassment. But she says she is proud of the city like never before.

Now she wants to be a social worker and be able to help others directly on the front line that she believes Hong Kong has a good future.
