Families took to the streets of Hong Kong on Saturday to join the 'Guard Our Children’s Future' rally in support of anti-government protesters and against police violence.
Footage shows children playing with balloons and drawing and painting signs to be carried during the rally featuring slogans including “Guard Our Children's Future.” Protesters marched from Edinburgh Place to government... Еще offices in the city as part of the authorised demonstration.
“When [my children] watch the news on TV and they have a lot questions in mind, they ask why Hong Kong has become worse and worse. Why do the police beat protesters?,» said one demonstrator.
«Today there’s a rally 'Guard our Children,' so I brought them here to feel it, to tell them what’s happening, and also to support the protesters,” she added.
The rally was peaceful in contrast to some of the violent protests that have taken place in Hong Kong since the end of March. Demonstrators are calling for the total withdrawal of a suspended bill that would allow for the extradition of the city's residents to mainland China for trials.
