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.

Speaker – “I support the students”.

Hong Kong Protest Pictures – 11th of October

Saturday 11th 1

Some see the portrait of Joshua Wong as an oversimplification or reductive of the Hong Kong protests.

Saturday 11th 10

Normally a place where the public are allowed to protest as it’s directly connected to central government offices. The government closed the site on the first day of the protests and has been closed since.

Hong Kong – Thursday Night – The 9th of October 2014

Text reads - "Mum don't worry about me today I can see the world clearly at last".

Thursday 6

Mobile democracy class.

A clever thinking protester created this shrine for the barricade in Mong Kok. Guan Gong represents justice. He is inside every police station. Some people wonder how the police will now take down this barricade as doing so will curse the station and the families of police officers. From Left to right :  White paper - Guan gong don't protect police who gang up with thugs. Pink paper -  Fearless to protect the country and its people.  Middle white paper - Blasphemy will be punished by gods.  Pink paper - God will protect those who are kind and loyal.

Hong Kong – Wednesday Night – The 8th of October 2014.

Wednesday 1

As each day passes, the Mong Kok camp becames more elaborately decorated with features not present at Admiralty. There are multiple shrines, statues made out of umbrellas and street lights are given a botanical make over. There is enough to confuse or fascinate those inadvertently pass by.

Wednesday 4

Protestor takes his turn under the barricade. He works nearby and can come to help very easily. He isn’t a student, he is an engineer protesting in his spare time. Sign reads – “Universal suffrage for the legislative council and for civic nomination”.

Wednesday 6

A few days ago, somebody set up a shrine for the God of Justice which is worshipped in every police station in Hong Kong. This could pose a problem for police later, because when the time comes to take down the barricade, the police have to take down the idol as well. This will curse the police station and the family of the police officers involved.

Many people are merely curious, or refuse to support the protests either due to time constraints or because they are against the protests on principle.
