Why T2T starts?
In 2019 the anti-extradition law movement delivered shocks and trauma unforeseen, especially for our youth.
Hong Kong young generation have been criticized as 'rioters' for a long time, no matter they stay at frontline or back up others. What they have undergone not only emotionally ups and downs, but also physical violence, breakdowns of family relationships and dark sides of systems. When the young generation no longer believe public power and their social belief collapse, social trauma is therefore formed.
When daily lives are ruined, how can we get back to normal? Facing social trauma, many are anxious to heal it by removing negative emotions and pausing conflicts; while we believe that as trauma is caused by society, we need to return to the origins of the problems. For example, learning self emotions, listening to companions, communicating with people holding different views, acknowledging power dynamics within groups and institutions. Finally, we are able to enacting social policies.
The social trauma exposed social problems, which provides us an outlet of social transformation.
