Given the current situation in Hong Kong Polytechnic University, with 50 survivers (protesters) being besieged by more than 500 polices located at every intersection of streets nearby, and even drains/sewers.

enter image description here

The latest situation in HKPU can be found at CNN news article below: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/11/19/asia/hong-kong-polytechnic-university-scene-intl-hnk/index.html

Police's Plan from Media: Police force explained they currently do not have any plans to attack or forcefully takeover the university.

Morale / Mental health: The morale is currently very low and everyday there are desperate people surrendering to police and being charged by committing riot, some are currently suffering from mental breakdown and even PTSD.

Police Action: Police uses speakers to irritate the survivers (protesters) inside, suggesting you to surrander and should pay for what you have commited.

Rations: Glossary and dry food are enough to keep everyone alive for approx. a month.

External Support: 100,000 Supporters from external have tried to charge the police defense line once last week, but failed. Still they are trying to figure a way to provide support with no luck so far. And the world is watching.

Health: Medics have been evaculated yesterday and several people are suffering from dirrehia.

If you are one of the survivers (protesters) trapped inside, what would you do to ensure everyone can sustain the longest period of time?

  • I sympathize with the protesters, but this question doesn't seem to be about sustainability. Also it is a duplicate of worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/questions/161633/… – THelper Nov 22 '19 at 8:10
  • @THelper I guess it’s duplicated here as it is based on real situation (contrary to World Building). The question asks about sustaining health (and perhaps morale) in a besieged situation. I do agree that it may be odd to ask about sustaining life in a university without much external help. Which SE forum do you recommend this post to be moved to? – Sunny Pun Nov 22 '19 at 8:52
  • @SunnyPun I'm not sure there is a StackExchange site where this question will fit. – THelper Nov 22 '19 at 9:03
