Sadly I left the site early, thinking that the protesters could hold Lung Wo Road at least until the next morning. Only to realise back home that the police pushed everyone back to Tamar Park, and to witness re-occupation and another clearing over the internet. The video combines video material from multiple people.

Finally, AJ+ published the mini-documentary of my colleague Aleksander Solum, an HKU JMSC graduate from last year. I helped him a little bit with producing and shot some of the b-roll. It features some of the students who participated in the movement through art, and follows them with their projects.

I discovered this lovely sketches while strolling through the crowd at Admiralty, which is still the center of the civil uprising here in Hong Kong. They were photocopied multiple times and stuck against lanterns and walls. I do not know who drew them. They are only a tiny bit of all the creativity that the mass gatherings on the street had sparked.

Do you know the artist? I would love to meet him!

The world’s most polite protesters in pictures

Pictures from the first days of the so-called “Umbrella Revolution” in Hong Kong, taken in Admiralty and Mong Kok during the last days. Nobody dares to estimate the numbers. But there are definitely more than 100,000 Hongkongers on the street.
