EXCLUSIVE: Hong Kong Democracy Demonstrations – Day 2 Signs

At noon today I walked through the site of the demonstrations and street blockades in front of the central government offices. There were slightly fewer people there than at the same time yesterday, but they seemed better organized and definitely better provisioned. Below are some of the signs I encountered.
One of the few signs in English — posted near one of the main entry ways into the demonstrator’s area.
“Longshore Union” “Strike to support the students”
“Persevere to the End”
The Chinese text clashes with the politeness of the English sign. The Chinese reads “Hong Kong police eat dog shit”
“I love Hong Kong” and “C.Y. Leung (Hong Kong’s Chief Executive) Step Down”
“Resist to the End”
My favorite: “Protect endangered species — Hongkongers”
