Gallery: 350 in Hong Kong
At 3:50 pm on Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong, pedestrians staged one of Hong Kong’s briefest 350 events.
When the crowd of around fifty people crossed the road, they stopped in the middle, stared at the sky and begun questioning the amount of CO2 in it.
“What is the figure?” the crowd asked.
When the traffic light turned red, they refused to move despite the angry car horns. One of the crowd pointed to a sign they held in their hand and shouted: “Just three hundred and fifty points!”
At the same time, men and women were taking off their overcoats, pretending to feel hot: panting, pulling at collars and fanning with hands.
