Earlier this week, Hyperallergic published an article by Jason Li, a Hong Kong-based cartoonist and designer who wrote about how protesters in Hong Kong are subverting the holiday season with Christmas cards that convey their political message of freedom and democracy.

In a long Twitter thread responding to Li’s article, hundreds of readers from Hong Kong have shared their favorite radical, creative Chrismas card ideas under the #freehkxmascard hashtag.

The cards, rife with protest memes and slogans, were too impressive not to share. See a selection of our favorites here below.
