It’s a list of leaders of the pro-democracy movement. In addition to the leaders, about 1,500 were arrested in connection with the struggle for real universal suffrage in 2014. A little over 200 of those were prosecuted, and about 80 convicted. Since 2014, dozens of other pro-democracy activists have been arrested. If you know of any other pro-democracy leaders who have been arrested since the Umbrella Movement and are not on the list, please do let me know and I will include them.
