The water cannon fired blue-dyed water, traditonally used elsewhere in the world to make it easier for police to identify protesters later.

Police also fired round after round of tear gas as protesters took cover behind umbrellas between the local headquarters of China's People's Liberation Army and government HQ.

Protesters also threw bricks at police.

Thousands took to the streets in the afternoon on a largely peaceful, meandering rally in the rain, many joining a "Christian march" from the Wanchai entertainment district and congregating next to the Legislative Council, stormed by activists in an earlier protest.
