Hong Kong: Protesters form human chain outside UK's HK consulate

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
October 23, 2019 at 15:34 GMT +00:00 · Published

Masked protesters formed a human chain outside the UK's Consulate in Hong Kong, on Wednesday, urging the UK government to support the anti-government protesters.

"What the Chinese communist party is doing right now is not just about the 1.4 billion people in mainland China, it's not just about Hong Kong, it's not just about people in Taiwan this effects the entire world." one protester said.

"I think we have the right to decide what kind of future do we want, do we want a more progressive a more open a more just a more fair world or do we want the kind of world the Chinese communist party is prescribing for us." she added.

Protesters were seen carrying signs reading "Implement UK Magnitsky act now!" and chanting "Don't leave us, stay with Hong Kong."

Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by a now-withdrawn extradition bill since March. The rallies later evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by months of clashes between protesters and the authorities.
