The day after tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong, another massive rally is under way at Victoria Park in Causeway Bay on Sunday afternoon.
Relief spread across the city as anti-government protests ended relatively peacefully on Saturday, with no tear gas fired, on the eleventh consecutive weekend of unrest.
Sunday’s protest organiser, the Civil Human Rights Front, had applied to the police for a march from Causeway Bay to Central.
But police would only allow a rally within Victoria Park, saying the front could not ensure public safety given violence at recent protests.
