Umbrella Protests: Then and Now

This combination of Dec. 1, 2014 file, top, and Sept. 26, 2015 photos shows police officers detaining a protester during a clash as other protesters attempting to surround the Hong Kong government headquarters during the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong, and a woman with an umbrella walking through the same area almost one year later. A year ago, Hong Kong’s famously busy streets were shut down by pro-democracy activists who occupied them for 79 days in what became known as the “Umbrella Movement.” The protests were led by students and other activists who took to the streets to voice their opposition against Beijing’s plan to restrict elections for top leader of the semiautonomous Chinese city.
