Hong Kong protestors brought cellos and violins to their demomain
Media reports from the semi-autonomous Chinese province suggest the organisers of the democracy protest intended to foster a peaceful atmosphere by playing classical music outside the centres of power. In a previous protest, a cello was played as demonstrators had their heads ceremonially shaved.
Chan Kin-man, one of the organisers, believes in the power of music to melt hearts. Sadly, it did not work out that way. Report here.
