The aim of this chapter is to explain and explore the significance of student political participation in Hong Kong’s history since the 1960s. Student social movements can take many forms, from harmonious social services helping community building to the other extreme – anti-governance political actions opposing state or government rulings. In this chapter I discuss students’ political participation at crucial and important moments in Hong Kong’s modern history, where it was most prominent and effectual, drawing public and governmental attention. Issues are always seriously influential and publicly interested with their values or mass mobilizations. Copyright © 2014 City University of Hong Kong Press.
