EpochTimes: "350,000 Hongkongers March Despite Police Ban, Days After Assault on Prominent Activist"

By Frank Feng

"Thousands of Hongkongers took to the streets in the afternoon on Oct. 20, despite a police ban, just days after a prominent activist was brutally attacked by thugs who are still at large.

The march’s participants, many of them dressed in black and some holding an umbrella, set off from Salisbury Garden in Tsim Sha Tsui at about 1:30 p.m. local time. One hour later, the first section of the march arrived at it’s destination, West Kowloon Station, which is about 1.5 miles away.

Protesters could be heard shouting slogans such as “five demands, not one less” and “Hongkongers Resist.”

The march was originally planned by the Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF), the organizer behind some of the city’s biggest protests to date. But the group lost an appeal against a police ban on Oct. 19. According to Hong Kong media, police prohibited the march, citing fears of violence.

The organization estimated that 350,000 took part in Sunday’s march.

CHRF planned the march to call for the abolition of the anti-mask law Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam put in place on Oct. 4 after she invoked a colonial-era emergency law. The law bans people from wearing facial masks during large public gatherings, in an effort to quell the ongoing unrest.

Four activists decided to lead the march, facing the possibility of being arrested. The four were Figo Chan, 22, deputy convener at CHRF; Leung Kwok-hung, 63, of the League of Social Democrats; Albert Ho, 68, former chairman of the Democratic Party and current chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China; and Cyd Ho, 65, vice chairman of the Labour Party."
