“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
