Liberate Hong Kong

Tsz Wan Shen, Hong Kong: A demonstrator in his protest gear brandishes a sign reading "Liberate Hong Kong. The Revolution of our Times." This has become the slogan of the protest and can be heard all over the city, even outside of formal demonstrations. Demonstrators ascend Lion Rock, a nearly 500-meter peak overlooking the city, to stage a protest composed of light, chanting, and song. September 13, 2019-Hong Kong-Photo by Aaron Guy Leroux
