[800,000 people took to the streets of hong kong to mark International Human Rights day this weekend. They're drawing attention to the erosion of their basic freedoms by the Chinese Communist Regime.
“They have chipped away little by little at the freedoms that Hong Kong is supposed to enjoy.”
“Even though it's scary, I think we still need to stay here and to help to do what we can do now.”
It has already been six months since Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests began. However, judging from this weekend’s turnout it seems those involved still won’t rest until they get their five demands. Paul Greaney, NTD News, Hong Kong
