Hong Kong Protesters March to U.S. Consulate, Sing American Anthem

Thousands of protesters again took to the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday, some of the protesters gathered outside the U.S. Consulate General, asking for help from the U.S. government, CNN reported.

One of the protesters made a speech in which he asked on behalf of his like-minded people that the United States adopt a law in support of democracy and human rights in Hong Kong.

Consulate protesters behaved peacefully, waving U.S. flags and holding a poster that says “President Trump, free Hong Kong.” They also shouted “Resist Beijing” and sang the U.S. anthem.

“We share the same U.S. values of liberty and democracy,” 30-year-old banker David Wong said. “USA is a country of democracy. Donald Trump is elected by his people. We want this.”

Due to massive clashes between police and protesters, the Central metro station was closed, and the shops and institutions around it were also closed. After reports that several people were detained by the police, radical protesters broke windows in several doors of the metro station.

On several streets, protesters opened their umbrellas and were in dense formation, blocking traffic.
