Earlier tonight, activist Freakingcat attended an event at the Sky Lobby in Central Plaza in celebration of Spain’s National Day. Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor was on hand to give a speech. Freakingcat took the opportunity to make a statement in support of the Occupy Central movement. And being an active Twitter user, he naturally live tweeted the whole thing. Here’s the entertaining play-by-play.

Oh, the anticipation...
The moment of truth is close
But not before a celebratory drink
AND IT’S OPEN! Bonus points for going with the Doraemon umbrella
Here’s what it looks like from the crowd

Lots of personal attacks on me even from the German consul but lots of words of encouragement even from the Austrian consul— Freakingcat (@freakingcat) October 13, 2014
