In this Friday, Oct. 10, 2014 photo, Gwen Chan, 15, a student, poses for a portrait in front of a barricade which she guarding until it removed by police on a main road in an occupied area near government headquarters in Hong Kong. Chan said “Many adults felt that the ’90s generation and the ’00s generation were useless. This movement has changed their views. Many people say that we receive payment (for protesting), but how would that work? Sleeping on the street for a month, the floor is so hard, don’t you think it’s tiring? There’s no brainwashing now. Whatever I feel is right, I will do. Even if others don’t support it, I will still come out. This movement will not succeed in one go, Even (Republic of China founder) Sun Yet-sen did not succeed in one go. We will continue walking down this road.” (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)
