Signs of the Hong Kong Protests

More than two weeks into protests in Hong Kong, the police appear to be losing their patience. Bamboo barricades were torn down on Tuesday. The next day, police forcibly removed people from Lung Wo Road and arrested over 40 protesters. The city’s typically conservative television station TVB aired footage of Ken Tsang being beaten by plainclothes officers early Wednesday morning. At the New York Times, Keith Bradsher and Michael Forsythe also report that some protesters have gotten rough on the police.

Amid these scenes of confrontation, protesters are also taking a quieter stand through signs, shrines, and art. Mainland Chinese poet Meng Lang shares these “best of” signs and slogans.
