The Chinese government is currently under a lot of pressure as the Hong Kong protest continues.
The protesters in HK and the citizens of Hong Kong are having a lot of trouble to access news websites, which report on the HK situation.
All of this is possible because of the “Great Firewall of China”. The citizens are forced to use VPN connections, Proxies and Anonymous services to access the internet.
Currently, the protestors are using the FireChat application to exchange information.
