Regardless of political stance, one can't help but be in awe of the passion and creativity displayed by activists of the Occupy Central/Umbrella Movement.
I visited the camp in it's earlier stages and here are some of the significant visuals and moments I found.
Note: anti-Occupy protesters began attacking the camp the day after these photos were taken. I'm happy I got to capture this beforehand.

After this visit, I was truly amazed! It reminded me of the kind of community the Bible describes in Acts:2, where people are selflessly committed to serving each other as they strive towards a goal. It's quite true that at the heart of this movement is a desire for love and peace in Hong Kong and it's relationship with China.
Thanks for reading!
