Photographing the Umbrella Revolution

PRESENTED ON MAY 25, 2016
IN HONG KONG @ VOL 27

Aaron Anfinson shares his experience of photographing the Umbrella Revolution as it unfolded over nearly 3 months in the autumn of 2015 in Hong Kong. What began as a series of peaceful sit-in street protests - against the proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system and the pre-screening of candidates for the Chief Executive election in 2017 - escalated to include more than 100,000 protesters occupying key areas in Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok punctuated by violent clashes between students, triads and riot gear clad police armed with batons and tear gas. Anfinson's beat poetry inflected voice sets the scene for his intense emotional images.

The Recovery Revolution: Building Tribe in a Disconnected World

BY RAYNARD PACKARD
IN AKRON

We have found ourselves in the throes of an epidemic, the likes of which we have not seen in modern times.  While overdose deaths rage on, we continue to respond with a system of care so broken, with resources so painfully thin, for folks with a severity of problems so complex - we are tossing folks into a chasm that is fundamentally designed to make them fail - and when they do fail - what do we do?  We cage them.  We take their children away.  We rob them of their very humanity.  Fortunately, pockets of resistance are forming, and together - we have launched the Recovery Revolution.
