【外國媒體coconut】Mass Movement Writ Small Hobbyists create detailed protest scenes with custom figurines
As a massive crowd gathered in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park this afternoon to show their continuing support for the city’s months-long protest movement, a much smaller crowd had gathered on a nearby street. A much, much smaller crowd.
On a patch of asphalt just outside of the park, a group of hobbyists had set up a protest scene in miniature, with detailed custom figurines standing in for protesters, right down to the hard hats, makeshift shields, and plastic wrap-covered arms.
the group hopes that the display can help present the protesters’ cause to the similarly small but enthusiastic community of fellow hobbyists.
“Because they have a special group of people who are interested in this kind of thing, so they want to spread the message to that niche group.”
