Check out how protesters in Hong Kong clean up after themselves! [photos]


As Twitchy noted during the “People’s Climate March,” protesters in New York City left quite a mess after they were done demonstrating to save the planet.

Check out these amazing photos:

Great job, Hong Kong and maybe one day protesters in America can follow your lead.
