For his latest CDT drawing, Badiucao honors protesters in Hong Kong. In this image, a protester, wearing a red cloth over her eyes in a nod to the 1989 protests, is envisioning a bird escaped from the cage. Occupy Central With Love and Peace, which is a primary organizer of recent protests, uses a bird in its logo. The characters say “香港加油!” or “Go Hong Kong!”
