“Lennon Wall” message boards have become a Hong Kong-wide phenomenon after a month of political upheaval against the extradition bill, as thousands of supportive messages have appeared on dozens of public walls across the territory. They have also started to appear overseas as foreigners and Hongkongers abroad express solidarity with the demonstrations. One such message board has appeared on a remaining section of the Berlin Wall in the German capital’s Mauerpark.
