Protests around the world
Protest in Hongkong
I witnessed a protest in Hong Kong this morning. Joining today's protests were residents from different jobs and of different ages,applying for the voting rights of themselves.As a high school student in China mainland, I've never heard any protests here,not to mention witnessed one. Things are so different in Hong Kong. I met a really old man(looks like over 90) later in the subway. He wore the protest T-shirt and talked a lot about the politics in Hong Kong. I could actually feel the strong willingness of being part of the society which I never saw from anyone around me back in China mainland.
