Uncle Wong, 82: protecting Hong Kong protesters with his walking stick – video

Uncle Wong is part of Protect the Children, a community group whose members put their bodies between the police and young Hongkongers protesting against the government.

Waving his walking stick in the air and wearing swimming goggles to protect against teargas, he tries to reason with police and provide a distraction to allow activists to evade arrest.

As tensions continue to rise between protesters and police, however, so does the emotional burden on Uncle Wong.
