performed or occurring as a result of a sudden impulse or inclination and without premeditation or external stimulus.
Events that last for weeks on end and being mass organised for thousands of people can only be defined as "spontaneous public protest" by a simple-minded pre-adolescent boy.
The event started on campuses and then spread quickly to three areas in town, Mong Kok, Causeway Bay and Admiralty. If there was an overall detailed plan to do this the students did a very good job of making it look very haphazard and spontaneous.
I am not sure why you think the length something endures is determined by the spontaneity of its starting. That makes no sense.
