Draw a Protest

Occupy Central / Hong Kong

The 2014 Hong Kong protests, also called the Umbrella Movement (Chinese: 雨傘運動) or Umbrella Revolution (Chinese: 雨傘革命), began in September 2014 when activists in Hong Kong protested outside the Hong Kong Government headquarters and occupied several major city intersections after China’s Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) announced its decision on proposed electoral reform. In disallowing civil nominations, the NPCSC made it clear that a 1200-member nominating committee, in which the composition remains subject to a second round of consultation, would elect two to three electoral candidates with more than half of the votes before the general public could vote on them.
