The semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong has recently been rocked by protests after a controversial extradition bill, which allows 'suspects' to be taken back to mainland China for questioning, has now reopened old wounds and grievances.


The former British colony, which was handed back to Chinese rule in 1997, has endured an uneasy relationship with the mainland while attempting to keep its special status in a “one country, two systems,” agreement.


Attempts by the Chinese Communist Party to further impose its will on the city have led to pro-democracy protests and civil disobedience, with activists finding their voice in the 2014 'Umbrella Movement' that occupied large parts of Hong Kong for 79 days.


Hong Kongers are now out on the streets once again, heading out in even larger numbers this time. It's estimated that around two million people, 25 percent of the population, have taken part in the protests so far, and they've forced both the local government and Beijing to rethink their stance.


However, these are no wild, violent insurrections. Hong Kongers do their protests differently! Showing unity, discipline, and respect for their city, this is an expression of peaceful people power at its finest. Something we could all learn from when facing oppressive policies from those in power.


Scroll down to check out how Hong Kongers are respectfully standing up for their civil rights, and share your thoughts in the comments!

According to Bored Panda, notable feature of the protests has been the eagerness of those who take part to clean up after themselves. Large scale protests like these can quickly turn into riots, with more extreme elements of society taking advantage of the chaos to loot, steal and vandalize property.


These protests seem to have largely avoided this phenomenon as they are essentially self-policing, a perfect example of people looking out for each other to protect the greater good. They love their city and show it the respect it deserves, unlike recent riots in Paris, London or Athens, just to name a few.
