The spirit of Lion Rock, a famous hill in Hong Kong, has been equivalent to the spirit of Hong Kong. So when a group of climbers managed to hang a big, very big, banner from the top of the hill, which reads “I want real universal suffrage”, it is extremely inspiring for the pro-democracy protesters and those supporting the umbrella movement. It rocks the city.

The climbers have given immense positive energy to Hong Kong when the city is in desperate need of it. Hats off to them. They are truly creative and courageous, and have used their skills to do a very meaningful thing for Hong Kong. It is such a clever way to fight for the democracy of Hong Kong. And it is no small feat to climb down the steep edge to hang the giant banner, which measures six metres wide and 28 metres long – Lion Rock is no stranger to climbing accidents. What is more, they may face charge from the government for putting up a banner in a country park area.

Their action has touched the hearts of many. Must watch! It makes you cry.
