"LSA SG saw that a number

said. "It seemed to be a combi-

our own publicity of the funding

response to the proposed fund-

Dabrowski said LSA SG mem-

student organizations up to

ing since the passing of the
resolution to spread the word

Dozens of students gathered
on the Diag Wednesday after-
noon to show solidarity with
pro-democracy protesters in
Hong Kong.
The silent rally was one of
over 50 on college campuses
around the United States. The
group is part of the global move-
ment to raise awareness of the
protests in Hong Kong, "United
for Democracy: Global Solidarity
for Hong Kong," which started
at Harvard University. Rackham
student Anthony Ip and LSA
junior Chris Cheung created the
University's chapter, also taking
charge of organizing and publi-
cizing the protest.
Tension has been growing in
Hong Kong since China decid-
ed not to give Hong Kong full
autonomy in 2017, as the country
promised it would back in 1997
as part of an agreement to reas-
sume sovereignty over the island
from the United Kingdom. On
Sunday, protests escalated after
clashes with police officers using
tear gas and pepper spray result-
ed in 41 injuries.
Louisa Lim, a visiting profes-
sor of journalism at the Univer-
sity, wrote an op-ed for the New
York Times Monday compar-
ing the protests to the massacre
in Tiananmen Square in 1989,
where the Chinese army was
also deployed and used violence
toward protesters. She added
that the tension stems from not
just gaining autonomy, but from
the "gaping inequality" in the
region, said to be rigged by gov-
ernment policies.
"As students and activists
faced off with riot police amid
the canyons of skyscrapers, one
popular chant was simply, 'Hong'
