Here’s a moving compilation of photos and clips from this weekend’s events in Hong Kong showing people striving for universal suffrage.

Translation of captions:

[0:40] Sept. 27: Crowds gathered around the government headquarters to support demonstrators marching through the East Wing.

[0:46] Demonstrators raised their hands to show police they were being peaceful.

[1:05] The police used pepper spray several times.

[1:22] Demonstrators were arrested.

[1:29] They used umbrellas to protect themselves from the pepper spray and the police.

[1:48] I feel the government has gone crazy.

[2:03] The government takes the side of the rich and powerful.

[2:05] But history will stand on the side of Hongkongers who fight for democracy.
