[ OCLP Press Release 27 OCT 2014 ]

Democracy fears not tears, The day Hong Kong changed

Remember 9.28 | Bring an umbrella | Uphold together


It’s one-month anniversary of the Umbrella Movement. On 28 September the Hong Kong Government and their police force used tear gas 87 times against the peaceful protesters. The occupy movement then turned into a widespread and globally well-known movement of civil disobedience. We would like to invite all of you, who support genuine universal suffrage, to come back to the Umbrella Square with an umbrella, and wear the identifying features of 9.28 (such as clothing or goggles). Those who are not able to join in person, please wear yellow and stand for a moment of silence wherever you are at 5:57pm. Let’s go forward in solidarity!
