Hong Kong protesters march to US consulate calling for support

Published on September 8, 2019 by

In their 14th straight weekend of anti-government protests, Hong Kong’s demonstrators have taken their case to the US consulate, their latest attempt to bring an international spotlight to the political crisis in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
Calling for politicians in the United States to support their cause, thousands of people gathered in central Hong Kong and marched towards the consulate, waving US flags and shouting slogans in English, such as “Fight for freedom! Stand with Hong Kong!”.
The rally was peaceful, but riot police were out in force to ensure protesters steered clear of the nearby Government House, the chief executive’s gated residential compound.
