In English the sign on top of Lion Rock translates as “I want true votes’.
Earlier today the police removed the sign by helicopter. The significance of the Lion Rock (besides being Lion shaped rock) can be read here – http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beneath_the_Lion_Rock (Cantonese pop song that is the unofficial anthem of Hong Kong) and here – http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Below_the_Lion_Rock (Cantonese TV Series).
The protests move unexpectedly into their third week now. Protesters settle in, have brought beds and tents into all sites, and setup more recharging stations in Mong Kok. Shrines are becoming more elaborately decorated as they become a more permanent fixture at some of the barricades.
This is becoming a process of attrition for both sides and for the moment there is still enough momentum behind the students.
