The Hong Kong protests are incredibly significant for many reasons. Not only are they exceptional as people are protesting more than six months, it is also the tactics that the protesters use that are highly sophisticated.

Here is a good article about the many subversive cultures emerging from the HK uprisings:

We checked 100 years of protests in 150 countries. Here’s what we learned about the working class and democracy.
The success of mass protests depends on who is doing the protesting.

'...Industrial workers have been key agents of democratization and, if anything, are even more important than the urban middle classes. When industrial workers mobilize mass opposition against a dictatorship, democratization is very likely to follow.'

An audio-visual archival resource focusing on radical activism around Australia, particularly during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s (although resources are not restricted exclusively to this time period).

The archive recovers "lost" and rare independent Australian documentaries (also vérité footage of historical significance) in order to preserve these films, videos and audio for posterity before they reach end of life and disappear permanently.

The focus is on visual/aural material.....the archive currently has 204 film streams and 91 audio streams.
