Elpis Yip, in her 40s and originally from Malaysia, is standing between protesters and anti-riot police outside the east entrance of Legco, trying to pacify both sides by singing hymns.
Yip, a barista who works at Pavilion Cafe, joined the rally around Legco at 6.30am. "When I first joined the front line this morning, I was a bit frightened. But I quickly resumed inner peace as I know I am here to help both sides calm down," she says.
