HKFP Lens: Remnants of pro-democracy Occupy protests remain as one-year anniversary approaches

It has been almost a year since Hong Kong’s pro-democracy student boycott movement merged with the Occupy Central plan to give rise to the Umbrella Movement. Photographer and City University researcher Dan Garrett has documented small signs that remain around the city from the months-long Occupy protests. Though the streets have long been cleared, small remnants such as yellow umbrella stickers and pro-democracy graffiti persist.
