    Hong Kong, October 2019

    Thousands of protesters took the streets in Hong Kong to mark the 5th anniversary of the Umbrella Movement and the 70th anniversary of the National Day of the People’s Republic of China (that commemorates the formal establishment of China on the 1st of October 1949.)

    Hong Kong has been celebrating this event for the last two decades, but lots has changed in recent times. Protests have been declared illegal and state celebrations have been cancelled but thousands of people ventured into the streets to voice their concerns once more.
