Brian Leung: ‘The more people we have, the safer it is here’, Storming of Hong Kong Legislative Council -2019
On 1 July, after months of anti-government protests, protesters stormed Hong Kong’s Legislative Council building. Inside, one protester, Brian Leung Kai-ping, removed his face mask and addressed the crowd with an impassioned plea to remain and occupy the legislative chamber. Leung’s plea was ultimately unsuccessful: protesters abandoned the building in the face of an approaching police clearance operation. However his courage in removing his mask, thereby exposing himself to almost certain arrest, became the emotional high point of the night and remains a key symbolic moment in the months of ongoing protests. Leung is now in exile in the USA.
