Photo Gallery for Umbrella Revolution


“Umbrella Revolution” is a series of peaceful protests for “Universal Suffrage”, including occupations in Admiralty, Mong Kok, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, as well as Class boycotts in secondary schools and tertiary institutions. The “Revolution” broke out on September 28, 2014, and occupiers were all evicted by the police on December 15. It lasted for 79 days. The “Revolution” may be a political awakening to the younger generation at that time. However, for most of the Hong Kong people, the “Umbrella Revolution” marks the failure of pursuing democracy for 30 years. What does the umbrella revolution mean to you?

It has been four years since the “Revolution” broke out. In light of this, the Hong Kong University Students’ Union organized a photo exhibition. It is hoped that the scenes of “Umbrella Revolution” can be presented to Hong Kong people again. We would like to thank “90s Photo”, Mr Jimmy Lam and Mr Benson Tsang for providing us with the photos.

Details of the exhibition are as follows:

Period of the exhibition:
2nd October to 12th October
Venue: Outside Union Office

Documentary Screening: Lost in the Fumes


During May 2018, a number of defendants in the Mong Kok protest were convicted, including Hong Kong University alumnus Edward Leung. Together with Ashley Hui, there have been students or alumni of HKU who were sentenced to jail as they fight for justice. After graduating from HKU, students may be involved in different industries. Also a graduate of the University of Hong Kong, Edward lost job opportunities, lost his precious freedom, lost his life with his loved ones, in return of six years in prison. While the media have shaped Edward Leung as a “rioter” , and mainstream cinemas have refused to broadcast this documentary, the Hong Kong University Students’ Union will co-operate with Ying E Chi to hold “Film Screening: Lost in the Fumes”, which provides an opportunity to know more about Edward Leung behind the spotlight.

Edward Leung was an average student before he unexpectedly finds himself at the focal point of two Legislative Council elections. While winning over 60,000 votes in the By-election would have guaranteed Edward a seat in the next round, his ticket to LegCo is forfeited when the regime imposes extra measures in the nomination process. Having once claimed that ‘be it crawling or creeping in, I will become a councillor, he can now only take the sidelines and put the backup Baggio Leung into the race.

On the other hand, Edward finds his free days numbered as he faces three counts of rioting charges for taking part in the Mong Kok Protest. Once an eloquent rising star in politics, now he may as well be a doomed prisoner. As the oath-taking controversy and the disqualification saga unfold, Edward retreats from the spotlight and decides to leave for further study in the United States while chaos continues to reign over Hong Kong politics.

Commemoration of Hong Kong Liberation Day


During the Second World War, as Hong Kong suffered from Japan’s aggression, The British Army, The Canadian Army, The Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) and The Hong Kong Chinese Regiment strove against the Japanese army vigorously for 18 days. Eventually, Hong Kong was captured. Yet, the spirit of the Martyrs who sternly defended against the attack surely deserves recognition and respect. It can also be seen that peace and prosperity in Hong Kong are hard to come by.

At the 73rd Liberation, in memory of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives to defend our homeland, The Hong Kong University Students’ Union will commemorate and offer flowers. We welcome all students to join us. The event was changed to 2 Sept, the coming Sunday, due to unstable weather on 30th August. Students are also encouraged to take their initiatives to mourn at the Memorial Park if you are not able to attend at the designated time.

The details are as follows:

Date:2nd September (Sunday)
Venue:Memorial Shrine, Memorial Garden, Hong Kong City Hall

Questionnaire Regarding the Use of CYM202


Dear Members,

The Executive Committee of HKUSU is collecting Members’ opinion towards the use of CYM202. CYM202, located in Chong Yuet Ming Amenities Centre, Main Campus, is a room under the administration of the Union. CYM202, which was a printing shop, has been temporarily used as a multi-purpose room since the 6th Ordinary Council Meeting of the Union Council, Session 2016. The Executive Committee proposed to the Union Council to review the use of CYM202, and we would like to understand Members’ opinion better towards our suggestions.

The Executive Committee has proposed two suggestions to the Union Council:
1. multi-purpose room: organizations within the Union and Members can book the room for uses. Other multi-purpose rooms are UG106, UG205, and FSC1A07. [1]
2. printing shop: providing a wide range of printing services, such as large-scale printing and binding service expected.

Members’ needs and benefits would be in priority in the Union’s consideration, and we sincerely invite you to express your opinion towards the use of CYM202:
(please enter the questionnaire with your HKU email)
【Deadline for submitting response: 20 July 2018 (Friday) 2359】
