Hong Kong Girl Revolutionaries vs Katniss Everdeen & Biblical Deborah. By Chapman Chen, HKBNews

Young Hong Kong women play a significant role in the Hong Kong Time Revolution (June 2019- ) against Communist HK and Communist China tyranny. Some fight bravely on the frontline; some act as first aiders; some deliver materials to the frontline; some work as journalists. They are comparable to Katniss Everdeen as played by Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games and to Deborah in the Book of Judges.

"If we burn, you burn with us" is a quote from “The Hunger Games" frequently chanted and daubed on the walls of buildings by Hong Kong revolutionaries.

As shown in the picture in the upper right corner, the comic book series, The Chieftains, created by former Concordia University Judaism professor Daniel Bernard, re-imagines the Biblical story of Deborah, the female prophetess who united with Barak and defeated the army of King Jabin, the oppressor of the people of Israel. She single-handedly slaughtered Sisera, the commander of Jabin's army.
