Description +-

A highly realistic depiction of the protest scene was used by the artist as a satire of police brutality amidst peaceful protests.

"Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times" written on the flag is a slogan used in the Hong Kong social movement. It is meant to be a very peaceful way of expressing their views. However. whenever the police see this slogan, they would still use heavy weapons to attack the protesters.
