In mid-October of 2011, as the Occupy movement was springing up in more than eighty countries around the world, a crowd of protesters gathered in the public atrium of the HSBC headquarters on 1 Queen’s Road, in the Central district of Hong Kong. They put up anti-capitalist banners and began an occupation of the building.

What made you come up with this idea? What made you come up with the name?

ENDING RACISM IS A LOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN A COUPLE WINDOWS, but a group of us wants to make sure that local, small, and cooperative businesses receive the community financial support they need so the window breaking doesn't cause them undue hardship.
Last night, as people in the Eat Bay rose up in protest of the executions of people of color by police, many windows were smashed. Most of those windows belonged to big corproate banks and franchises. But in the fray, a couple small businesses had their windows crunched.
