The Protestant Community and the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong

Author: Chan, Shun-hing

In: Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, Vol 16, No 3, 2015, pp. 380-395

Examines the surprisingly high level of participation by Protestants in the movement, despite the doubts or opposition of church leaders to the Umbrella movement. The author argues this participation can be explained by Richard Wood's theory of faith-based community organizing: using biblical stories, images and symbols to create a culture of protest.
