HONG KONG: As Hong Kong raged with the worst political violence so far this summer, many of those hitting the streets adopted a new symbol - smiling Guy Fawkes masks.
But until recently they had not made much of an appearance at the huge demonstrations currently battering Hong Kong.
Protesters in Hong Kong dubbed the celebrations a "Day of Grief", and took to the streets in huge numbers as battles raged for hours with police.
Many online forums encouraged protesters to wear Guy Fawkes masks.
