A photo essay.
One of the most peaceful public gatherings I have been to. Not one person pushed the barricade and yet we were gassed multiple times. There were at least 20 shots on our side within 2 hours.
And what did the people do to deserve this? They only peacefully handed out supplies of water, clear wrap and masks to protect ourselves from the tear gas. Young men helped older ladies climb over the tall barriers. The worst that happened was people questioning if the police on guard understood what they were fighting for.
Hong Kong people love being complacent and timid. Why have we stood out like this? No amount of tear gas can silence us.
Stay safe. Fight on.
