A man was seen with a piece of paper stuck to his back, reading ‘We are still going to get 35+ seats next year, silly’, in an attempt to mock the government’s desperate actions to prevent and deter HongKongers from facilitating and voting in pro-democracy legislators to form a majority of the Legislative Council.

September 6, 2020 was supposed to be the election day for the Legislative Council. The government postponed the election by a year citing the pandemic as a reason on 31 July 2020.

Editor’s note: “35+” indicates the number of Legislative Council Seats. “35+” means getting a majority in the Legislative Council, which has been the goal of the pro-democracy camp in elections since 1997.
