Set a World Record for Democracy:
March for Universal Suffrage 2012


7.10.2007 Hong Kong 香港


On Sunday, 7 October 2007, thousands of Hongkongers took part in another rally to demand universal suffrage by 2012. Before the march from Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to the Government Headquarters in the Central District, they tried to set a new Guinness World Record of having 5,580 umbrellas opened simultaneously to form the figure "2012". From different levels at the Victoria Park, I painstakingly captured the following images of the pre-march rally in setting the world record; I also took some snapshots of the march from there to the Central.

The march begins
In Causeway Bay
For universal suffrage & democracy
In Wanchai
People from all walks of life
Leaving Wanchai
Nearing the major banks in HK
I want universal suffrage
At the heart of the city
