At 194 feet wide and 1,312 feet long, the Matz Maersk Triple E is the largest ship ever built. It can carry 18,000 20-foot containers; its propellers weigh 70 tons apiece; it is too big for the Panama Canal, though it can shimmy through the Suez. All this is to say: This is a ship of daunting proportions.

The response of those in power against those without power is heinous. Girls. Boys. Students. Women. Old men. People wielding… umbrellas. People who want their voices to count, who still believe that government is governed by the people.

From Tahrir to Taksim, Wall Street to Ferguson, the people are still rising.

Keep your eyes on Hong Kong.
