Abstract: [First paragraph] The city of Hong Kong is considered as one of the world’s largest and immensely populated metropolitan cities, a prominent financial and cultural center, famous for its excellent food and emblematic skyscrapers which offer a breathtaking view to millions of visitors and tourists every year. Some years ago, few people could guess that this special administrative region of China would attract world’s attention due to the sit-in protests of 2014, also known as the Umbrella Movement. In a nutshell, the protests took place between September and December 2014 since Beijing’s administration decided in the summer of the same year to announce a substitute electorate framework which threatened Hong Kong citizens’ ability to democratically elect their leaders through universal suffrage.
