  1. Hong Kong Protest Camp Disappears

    The Umbrella Revolution has folded. After 75 days, police have cleared out barricades at the main site of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy demonstrations. The protests drew international attention, but achieved no political victories or concessions from the Chinese government, while 655 people were arrested. Even so, activists say their time on the streets was the beginning of a new era of resistance. The clear-out was largely peaceful, but protesters had the last word, chalked and posted on every surface they could find: “We’ll be back.”
