Censored Cartoon: HK and Taiwan Hopeful After Scottish Referendum, but Regime More Desperate

This caricature was shared almost 40 times on Sina Weibo before it got weeded out by censors.

The butcher (who represents the Chinese Communist Party) is ordering two boars (Hong Kong and Taiwan) to get into a brick pen with lots of docile pigs (mainland Chinese), saying: “Hong Kong and Taiwan’s future isn’t a local issue but a collective decision for all Chinese comrades.”

The deleted caption said:

The recent Scotland referendum gives hope to Hong Kong and Taiwan for the future. But it instills fear in the Chinese regime, and the reins are tighter than ever.
