I’ve just returned home from almost a week in Hong Kong covering the biggest protests in the world.

I’ve never seen anything like this. One in about eight Hongkongers took to the streets and not one Police officer in sight. In fact, the only time I witnessed any violence was when the police hit the streets too.
