Hong Kong Pro Democracy Protests: The Revolution of Our Time

“Fight for freedom! Stand with Hong Kong!” – these words crystallize the powerful and bewildering call, echoed by hundreds of thousands of people, pounding the pavement in Hong Kong defiantly, since the first reading of the Hong Kong proposed extradition bill in April 2019. It triggered an unprecedented wave of reaction both domestically and abroad with many fearing the erosion of Hong Kong's legal system, democratic freedoms and built-in safeguards as promised in the Sino-British Joint Declaration.

On June 9th 2019, an estimated one million people marched to the government headquarters in protest. The following week, over two million people - nearly a third of the territories population - took to the streets to protest against the Bill. Since that day, Hong Kong has been plunged into a political crisis, with waves of demonstrations and violent clashes between Police and protestors. What started as a protest against a proposed government bill, morphed into a wider call for democratic rights in the semi-autonomous city.

My series documents the human face of the social movement that swept through Hong Kong, fluctuating between pacifism and frustrated violence: the clash between two systems, the outcome of which was ultimately never in doubt.
