On Saturday 28 September 2014, tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Hong Kong to protest the electoral reforms in a dramatic political awakening.  The months that followed shook the whole city and captivated nations worldwide.  Jeff Wasserstrom, author of Student Protests in Twentieth-Century China, reflects on the last twelve months following Occupy Central and puts the actions of the students into a historical and comparative perspective.
