This recent New York Times article entitled Hong Kong Has Nothing Left to Lose mentions, in the opening sentence, that:
After breaking into Hong Kong’s legislature, protesters left a message for Carrie Lam, the city’s top government official, spray-painted on a pillar: “It was you who taught me that peaceful protests are futile.”
The link to the twitter pic has now been protected and is not publicly available.
Any idea what the original text to:
It was you who taught me that peaceful protests are futile
I’m assuming it wasn’t English.
