A political crisis that shook Hong Kong to its core has tested the city’s valued reputation as Asia’s financial hub. For several weeks now, residents have organized regular protests demanding the resignation of the city’s leader, and on July 1 a small group of protesters broke into the Legislative Council building by force and occupied the Legislature’s main chamber for several hours.

The break-in was an escalated response to the police’s use of excessive force in an earlier protest, and as of this writing, more than a dozen people were arrested for storming the chamber. The unrest and the series of clashes between the police and civilians raise questions about Hong Kong’s perceived stability.
