This article intends to analyse an event that revealed new avenues for Hong Kong's civil society to counter the government's attempt to negate asylum seekers' individual agency and the government's opposition towards a comprehensive asylum policy. This article outlines the context which led to the organisation of the 'March For Protection' on 30 October 2012. In doing so, it aims to offer a starting point to explore and debate the march's rationale, attainments and, more generally, civil society's relationship with state power.
