After 75 days occupying the areas around the Government office, the Hong Kong police finally had the guts to tidy up the situation yesterday… Around 200 people were arrested. Everything was done peacefully. This so-called Umbrella Movement has finished it’s first chapter. However, the spirit of driving true democracy is spreading strongly among people in Hong Kong in particular the young ones. They have to fight for their future… Getting ready for the next chapter!
This picture was taken on the flyover in Central district near the Government Office in Hong Kong… As of today, the area has been occupied by people, mostly students in Hong Kong for 58 days. In the first day of the occupation, our Hong Kong Police used 87 tear bombs to stop this happening. The people had no preparation for this attack and the only things they had on hand were umbrellas. They used umbrellas to protect themselves and stopped the police. That’s why it’s known as the Umbrella Movement. The main goal is to ask for true democracy so that people in Hong Kong can have the right to vote for their leaders.
Somebody put this cactus on the flyover… The paper yellow umbrella symbolizes the movement… The thorn of the cactus and the pavement of flyover tell us that this movement is not easy and it will have a long long way to go…
However, I treasure this moment because I see hope in Hong Kong… The students are our future and I support and respect their spirit to voice out their thoughts, their needs, their wills for true democracy!
Go for it… Never give up… You are small but you are definitely STRONG!!!
