Day 8 – “Heavens on Earth?”

3rd consecutive night visiting the peaceful rally in Admiralty, spent a little more time to stroll around and photograph what I see…

The peaceful rally seemed to have transformed the Government Headquarter area into a little community – streets were occupied by peaceful and polite locals sharing vibrant talks and conversations instead of the usual polluting cars and loud tourists with their big luggages; I also saw a great public space utilised by an unusual large number of citizens, there were open public lectures/talks, creative public art, and the sharing of goods. It felt a little like “Heavens on Earth”.

The government kept on urging the peaceful demonstrators to leave so that people can return to their “normal” lives, but what if we make what I saw tonight our new normal life? Wouldn’t we have a better and greener community?
