The Umbrella Movement in 2014, the biggest pro-democracy movement ever in Hong Kong, lasted for more than two months. On 27 September, the night before the tear gas struck, many young protesters stayed outside the Government Headquarters in Admiralty. Hearing that the police might use pepper spray and tear gas, most of them prepared themselves with masks and goggles.

2014年的雨傘運動是香港有史以來最大型的民主運動,為時两個多月。9月27日晚上在政府總部外,很多年輕人留守抗議。因為早有傳聞警方會使用胡椒噴霧或催淚氣體,很多人帶備了口罩和眼罩,以作防護。
