ProtestBlog.org: 20/22/2020: Helmets, gas masks, flashmobs, hand signals, the techniques that came into widespread use among protesters a year ago in Hong Kong, have spread across the globe and are now especially prominent in Thailand. Hong Kong’s largely student-led movement lent their moral support early on and openly to protesters in Thailand who have been seen as sharing numerous goals and principles of progressive change – vision for the future. Prominent Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong regularly tweets in support of the Thai movement with the hashtag #StandWithThailand. Last week he wrote: “People should not be afraid of their governments. Only governments should be afraid of their people.” New generations of protesters in Thailand and Hong Kong stand out both for their youth and their skill at harnessing modern technology.
