DISCLAIMER: Despite this article being related to a sensitive topic, we decided to write it. We express no views be it for or against the protests, simply some tips that we believe might help each of us stay safe!

1. The No.1 priority is to always be updated with the latest political news in Hong Kong. Know where the next protest will be held, update yourself by reading newspapers and watching the news.

2. Avoid wearing colours like white, red or black as they hold strong connotations to support certain causes/ parties, especially on the day of scheduled protests.
