Hong Kong, 2019—millions of people with hard hats and umbrellas poured out of their shoebox apartments and office towers onto the streets of Asia’s financial capital. At stake was their freedom and what they saw as an attempt by communist China to take over their city. On the other side of the barricades, more than 30,000 police officers, supported by armed sympathisers, were determined to quell the uprising. The stage was set for one of the most dramatic civil conflicts of the decade.These essays and book reviews, published in Mekong Review between June 2019 and February 2020, document a city in open rebellion.
