Occupy Central for Hong Kong Democracy

July 1, 2014

(Hong Kong) Thousands of protesters marched through busy bustling Hong Kong’s streets to demand full democracy from the Chinese central government and marked the 17 anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover to China.

The group, which was organized by local activists group, Occupy Central with Love and Peace, was gathered at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay early this afternoon before marching toward Central District.

“Say no to fake democracy,” one of the pro-democracy protestors said from the group’s platform in Central. “President Xi Jing Ping, this is the message that want to send: ‘we want the real democracy’.”

Hong Kong’s activists and local groups recently claimed Chinese central government has increasingly put greater pressure on Hong Kong democracy and press freedom.
