Umbrella Movement, was a sit-in street protest occurred from Sep to Dec in 2014.Started with class boycott by students, it became one of the biggest protests in Hong Kong history. Hundreds of thousands people joined the protest, occupied several major city intersections, demanding universal suffrage with unscreened nominees for the election of chief executive in 2017. Protesters defended themselves from police’s teargas and pepper spray with umbrellas, which made umbrella as a symbol of the demonstration and became the reason it was named Umbrella Movement, or Umbrella Revolution. The movement ended peacefully with disappointment and despair among protestors but it had long-term and huge impacts upon the political situation of Hong Kong. Until now, we are still trying to find the best way out of Hong Kong.
新單車是在荷蘭訂回來的，車廠提供在車架上刻名的服務，沒想很久就決定用Lion Rock。當時正值佔領期間，對我來說，最鼓動人心的一幕莫過於在獅子山上掛上巨型「我要真普選」那段航拍，上一輩人經常推崇的獅子山下精神，來到我這一代已經沒有幾多認同感，更別說是年青人，而那次行動實在是重新演繹了獅子山下精神，重新連繫上很多香港人對香港的情感，認同，責任和期盼。現在再聽《獅子山下》，腦中的畫面已不再是那段由黑白木屋到彩色高樓大廈的轉變，而是俯瞰獅子山頭掛著「黃符」的youtube片。神奇地，好像連羅文的歌聲感情都好像比以前更加豐富呢 ^^
