Stand with HK

Oct 6, 2019

What's all the fuss about? This picture represents HKer's fight for democracy, told through the lovely logo.

It's made of 5 '人' (people), suggesting solidarity.


They also look like ☂, one of the classic icons of the movement & the Umbrella Movement 5 yrs ago.

There are 5 of them to represent each of our original '5 demands' (list has grown since then)

  • complete withdrawal of ELAB
  • independent inquiry into police brutality ...

  • retraction of riot characterisation
  • release of all arrested protesters
  • authentic universal suffrage

We've seen it before in my thread on the bauhinia. Flattened out like below, it looks like a morning glory, & harks back to our crowd-sourced anthem, #GloryToHongKong

But the globe shape for the logo is important. It shows all the people of the world, hand-in-hand, united. Because the fight for human rights, for dignity, for democracy is universal.

Fight for freedom. #StandWithHongKong
