City within a city
The Umbrella Revolution occupation in Admiralty has blocked off Connaught Road Central, the major highway in the area. The large building overlooking the protestors houses the Hong Kong government. This is the location of the occupation: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Central+Government+Offices_Harcourt+Road
After visiting the site a few times, I’ve learned some of its geography: where they’ve planted gardens, where the first aid stations are, where the students study. There are major walkways and arterial side roads. Improvised bridges have been built over the medians that normally separate the highway lanes. They’re doing small scale construction of booths using wood and power tools. It’s amazing that all of this will vanish at some point and it will turn back into a bustling highway.
