The pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong have burgeoned into a worldwide movement, with rallies supporting the so-called Umbrella Revolution popping up in cities as far flung as New York, Copenhagen and Brisbane.

Since tens of thousands of protesters flooded the streets last week to demand free and open elections, as well as the resignation of Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, Hong Kong’s Beijing-appointed leader, thousands of overseas Chinese are doing the same in a show of global solidarity.

Despite taking place thousands of miles away, the events in Hong Kong have resonated deeply with many ex-residents now living abroad, particularly students.
