‘Occupy Central’: Student Protest, Hong Kong, 19th-27th October 2014

On Sunday 19th October 2014, I visited for the first time, the ‘Occupy Central’ site in the WanChai Tamar region. Impressed with the people support, this post together with my quick thumbnail sketches of the happenings is to record the student protest that is consuming the political consciousness of Hong Kong.
