Sometimes art and protest travel across space and time, just like the two John Lennon walls- original in Prague and now it’s twin in Hong Kong.
Lennon Wall Hong Kong literally refers to the democratic mosaic wall created during the Umbrella Movement, located at Central Government Complex, Harcourt Road, Admiralty, which is one of the main landmarks in the occupation area of Admiralty.
A section of the traffic road has been occupied and had become a community. Protesters called it “Admiralty village”. It’s peaceful and calm in the day time, at night there are speeches by the public. It is covered with hundreds, possibly thousands, of colored sticky notes, poised like butterflies above and on a curved outdoor staircase. Anyone can post one. Mostly in Chinese and English, the notes speak of hope and fear, of longing and love. Tourists may go and take some photos, especially the creative posters by local designers.
