In the beginning the protesters demanded the complete withdrawal of the extradition bill, now, after several weeks of protests the demands become 5.
1- Full withdrawal of the extradition bill
2- An independent commission of inquiry into alleged police brutality
3- Retracting the classification of protesters as “rioters”
4- Amnesty for arrested protesters
5- Dual universal suffrage for Legislative Council and the Chief Executive
The tactics used by the protesters are inspired by the phrase of Bruce Lee at the base of his Kung Fu, Be Water. Following this idea, the protesters arrive at one point, clash with the police and soon go away.
Hong Kong protesters use black as a dress code. The black is the color with which they recognize themselves.
Before each protest they preapre themself. Many try to raise public awareness by staying in safer areas carrying slogans and images of the events that the square denounces.
Others wear gas masks, helmets and protections to defend themselves from the police or from the attacks of the triads; becoming a sort of metropolitan warriors.
