Thousands march in Tseung Kwan O as Hong Kong continues weekend of protests

Thousands of people are marching in Tseung Kwan O as Hong Kong continues another weekend of protests, while in Central, an emotional wedding of two people facing riot charges marks a brief respite for some from the escalating crisis.

At 2.30pm on Sunday, a sizeable crowd gathered at Po Tsui Park in the eastern New Territories for a march to Velodrome Park, with attendance surging as the procession advanced. Meanwhile on Hong Kong Island, all eyes were on a 5pm rally in Belcher Bay Park and whether protesters would march to Beijing’s liaison office, which is nearby. Water cannons were placed outside the liaison office, apparently to prevent protesters from storming in. More than 20 police officers stood watch.
