13 Months On: Yellow Raincoat Man Remembered

It has been 13 months since the death of Leung Ling-kit (more affectionately known as the Yellow Raincoat man), who is considered to be the first martyr of the anti-extradition movement.

Groups of people from all Walls of life have made their way down to the site of his death to place flowers in memory and tribute to him.

An illuminated light box depicting an illustration of a yellow raincoat was also hung on the tree where the flowers were being placed.

Last year, Leung’s death sparked off a peaceful protest that involved 2 million participants making an appeal to the government to withdraw the extradition bill. This demonstration has made it to the books as Hong Kong’s biggest demonstration up to date.

It may have already been more than a year since Leung’s departure, but he will forever be remembered as an important figure in the movement.
