How You Can Show Support for the Anti-Extradition Bill Protests

I know this is a bit off topic for my usual cultural/historical posts but I figured I would add my contribution to the anti-Extradition Bill protests that have been in the world news over the past few weeks.

The below image popped up on Twitter a few weeks back and it is basically a list of prominent local business people (their Chinese names in bold) who showed support for the Extradition Bill amendments, and a list of the businesses they are involved in (as owners, directors etc). For obvious reasons there were quite a few requests for an English version of this list so that those who can't read Chinese could show some support for the protests by avoiding spending their money at these places.

Anyway, I took a bit of time out of my day to provide an English translation and I encourage anyone in Hong Kong who wants to show some moral support for the protests to think twice before they put money into any of the businesses listed below.
