London Protesters March in 'Solidarity With Hong Kong'

Activists across the globe held demonstrations on Saturday, August 17, to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong who have continued to call for democratic reform within their region, local media reported.

This video shows a crowd of people walking through the streets of London as they shout “Democracy for Hong Kong.” The video shows protesters holding signs that say “Solidarity with the revolt in Hong Kong,” “No China extradition,” and “Democracy will prevail!” The anti-government demonstrations in Hong Kong began earlier this year in opposition to a now-shelved extradition bill.

The London event aimed to show support for the region and pressure UK officials to take a legislative stance and intervene with “human rights violations” in Hong Kong, event organizers said.

Demonstrations were held in Australia on Saturday, with different events organized in favor of and against the Hong Kong government, reports said.

Pro-democracy Hong Kong supporters in Scotland also planned a protest for Saturday.

The international demonstrations came alongside a series of marches and rallies in Hong Kong on Saturday, with events organized for both pro-democracy and government supporters.
