The statistics for the English entry "2014_Hong_Kong_protests" are nothing unusual. The entry was created on Sep 28. The number of daily page views peaked at 41,168 on Oct 2 and has been declining gradually since then. There were 3,706 views yesterday.
In contrast, the Chinese entry "雨傘革命" used to have about 300 views on every day since its creation, but on Oct 29, the figure suddenly quintupled and remained plateaued afterwards. The edit history shows that only ten to twenty edits were made on each day. So, this abrupt surge in page views is unlikely a result of an edit war.
Apparently, some Chinese community had suddenly picked up its interest in the Umbrella Movement, after the protest has lasted for a whole month. But exactly what stirred whose interests is up to everyone's guess.
