The tactical evolution of #HongKongProtests: bolted-down barricades and calling out businesses

Two new notes from the tactical evolution of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong, which continues to build on its incredible iconography and its DIY hardware.

First, using impact drivers to sink bolts into the pavement to anchor the barriers that keep protesters safe from rushes from the out-of-control, ultraviolent police (the protesters have also started cleaning up after police violence to make it clear that they love their city, just not its Beijing-collaborator government and security forces).

Second, when Hong Kong protesters gather at businesses that are complicit in the crackdown on the pro-democracy movement, they plaster those businesses with signs explicitly calling them out for their complicity.
