Every sunday, when Hong Kong's domestic workers have their day off, they are gathering in Hong Kong's financial district, Central. They exchange places with their employers who work under the week in the office- and baking towers of Central. Hong Kong has about 320.000 domestic workers. The majority comes from Indonesia and the Philippines, at least 98% are female. Not just are they representers of modern day slavery, working under special labour conditions which are violating any given employment law of modern societies. The domestic workers, confronted with their everyday life situation developed a strong discursive interest. The particular situation in Hong Kong lead to an experience driven understanding of labour issues LGBT and gender issues ending up in an emancipatory self-conception. By being forced to spend their only day off in public spaces, they have to discuss these subjects in the open public sphere. They organise pop influenced events which turn the invisible into something visible even loud.
Hong Kong mainly misses these discurses in their "own" society, as the main focus lays on the political and social relationship to Mainland China.
We should not forget that it was often if not always the perspectives and experiences of the minorities that formed modern and liberal ideas of societies.
Finally you may wonder who is the one who is included and who the one excluded.
