Hong Kong's protesters find ways to outwit the surveillance state
The moment the 25-year-old protester got home from demonstrations that turned violent - tear gas still stinging her eyes - she knew what she had to do: delete all of her Chinese phone apps.

WeChat was gone. So was Alipay and the shopping app Taobao. She then installed a virtual private network on her smartphone to use with the secure messaging app Telegram in an attempt to stay hidden from cyber-monitors.

"I'm just doing anything" to stay ahead of police surveillance and hide her identity, said the protester. She asked to be referred only by her first name, Alexa, to avoid drawing the attention of authorities amid the most serious groundswell against Chinese-directed rule in Hong Kong since 2014. ...

For the past week, the hymn has been heard almost non-stop at the main protest site, in front of the city's Legislative Council, and at marches and even at tense stand-offs with the police.
....
It started with a group of Catholic students who sang several Christian songs at the main protest site, with "Sing Hallelujah to the Lord" catching on among the crowd, even though only about 10 percent of Hong Kong people are Christian.

"This was the one people picked up, as it is easy for people to follow, with a simple message and easy melody," said Edwin Chow, 19, acting president of the Hong Kong Federation of Catholic Students.

The students sang the songs in the hope of providing a cover of legitimacy for the protest. Religious gatherings can be held without a permit in the financial hub....

The hymn was composed in 1974 by Linda Stassen-Benjamin in the United States for Easter. Its five words are repeated over four stanzas in a minor key, which gives it an air of meditative solemnity.

"She is Catholic after all, it's one of the main reason we sing it," said Jamie, an 18-year old student who is not Catholic.

5 words in 4 stanzas now I wonder where I've heard that type of music before? I know where it comes from now. Apparently it can serve a purpose if not exactly a Christian one.
