Hongkongers march on US consulate calling for human rights help as anti-government protests roll on

Hundreds of Hongkongers gathered on Sunday to call on the United States government to pass an act in support of their city’s democratic development and human rights. Various groups headed to Chater Garden in Central, some holding American flags, before marching to the US consulate at noon.

“We are here to urge the US government to pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act,” a 22-year-old graduate from Polytechnic University, who declined to be named, said.“We are not selling out Hong Kong but defending the Basic Law, which promises us democracy and human rights.”
