Since June, 2019, Hong Kong has been the site of mass demonstrations against an encroaching influence of mainland China. The developments happened quickly and were complex. Most of the English-language news I read was either too short, a headline with little context, or too long, delving more deeply into the details than most would have time for to read.
I decided to make it easier for a casual audience to follow along by creating a series of short comics that would explain some of the key context and developments, based on the aggregation of Western news and English-language news from Hong Kong.
Scroll down to read the comics, or for the latest updates, check them out on Twitter.
I posted these comics to my personal social media accounts and it got picked up especially on Twitter. As of this writing (September 30th, 2019), the comics reached a combined total of almost 200.000 people, of which 3881 through facebook, 4020 through instagram, and 185.854 through twitter.
I have been able to continue this independent project for nearly two months in big part thanks to the donations I received from some of these very generous viewers. If you would also like to support this project with a donation, please follow this link.
