Here’s a day-by-day resource of basic links and major events (that I find important) to help structure an understanding of the Umbrella Movement’s progression. The majority of links go to South China Morning Post stories, since the website has been really invaluable as an English-language resource, compiling all sorts of information, events, bites, links, and images. I am also linking my related blog posts to each day.
Note – April 6, 2015: I realize this page hasn’t been updated in a long time! My apologies. I’m concentrating these days on the photo/translation blog, Umbrella Street Scenes.
Please note – Any inaccuracies linking events to days are mine.
