Return to Occupy Mongkok - Oct 24

After taking a break from the Occupy furore to visit universities in the USA for service-learning, I went back to Mongkok to have a look.  Some of the roads have been cleared.  

Vehicles can now drive along Argyle Street from the East,

turned right (North) at the junction of Argyle and Nathan,

and continue North on Nathan Road. 

Argyle Street between Nathan Road and Portland Street is still being occupied. 

Similarly, Nathan Road between Argyle Street and Dundas Street is still being occupied. 

The mood on the street is calm but determined.  These Occupiers are really resilient. 

I have been warned by people from both sides against going to Mongkok.  But I have never felt threatened when I am among the Occupiers.  It is only the anti-Occupiers who have been abusive and violent.
