THE UMBRELLA REVOLUTION 

We don’t need any tear gas, we’re crying already.

風雨中抱緊自由。 Brace our freedom among the storm.

It is Day 3 since 28th September 2014, the day Hong Kong Police threw Tear Gas to protestors.

Hong Kong citizens are fighting for democracy to select our own Chief Executive. We don’t want China’s claws on our back and hands on our throat.

Please, Tumblr, reblog and spread the word like wildfire.

SAVE HONG KONG. 

DO NOT LET HONG KONG FALL.

Hong Kong protests: Demonstrators clean up and recycle after night of clashes with police


Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have been cleaning up after themselves after a night of battles with police who used tear gas and pepper spray in a crackdown condemned around the world.



Thousands of people are occupying the Admiralty district of the city in continued opposition to the Chinese Government’s refusal to let them select their own candidates for leadership elections in 2017, allowing only Beijing-backed politicians to stand.
As protests continue, people have been seen distributing food and water as well as cleaning up after themselves in the famously orderly city.
At the main protest site at the city’s Government headquarters, students sorted plastic bottles for recycling even as they wore goggles and plastic sheets to protect against pepper spray.
A polite note was also seen left on a vandalised police van, apologising for the damage.

Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Protesters Clash With Police In Surreal Scenes

The normally calm streets of Hong Kong resembled a war zone on Sunday night as police tried to quell thousands of pro-democracy protesters on the city’s streets.
Tear gas was fired at the crowds gathered at government headquarters in a challenge to Beijing over its decision to restrict democratic reforms for the semiautonomous city.
Slightly surreal scenes unfolded as protestors attempted to shield themselves with umbrellas.
The Chinese government has imposed a media blackout of the protests and there are reports that access to some social network sites has been blocked.
