JPG Episode 19 – Hong Kong Protests

New JPG Logo cover 600 x 600

I connect with Adam and keep him up to date on the Hong Kong protests. A very political type of episode (direct download). Certainly more ‘J’ than ‘P’ and ‘G’ in this one (iTunes).

Hong Kong Protest Pictures – 12th of October

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.

Sunday 2

Speaker – “I support the students”.
