If you think Hong Kong’s Lennon Wall is set to be the city’s new hub for street art, think again.

Reports are claiming a 14-year-old girl has been arrested along with an older woman for drawing chalk flowers on the wall in the former Admiralty protest camp at around 1am this morning.

According to Ming Pao Daily, the two females are being held on charges of criminal damage and vandalism.

Ken Tsang – the Civic Party member who got covertly kicked around by the police during the protests – posted pictures of the aftermath of the incident to his Facebook page.

He claimed that around 20 officers swooped on the women for no good reason, leaving him to question what the police were afraid of. Isn’t it obvious? Chalk flowers.

It’s debatable whether chalk drawings constitute vandalism, but if found guilty the women could be imprisoned for three months and/or fined HKD500.
