Hongkongers are creating a pro-democracy human chain along Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, in a tribute to the Baltic Way 30 years ago. hongkongfp.com/hong-kong-extr… #HongKong #China #antiELABhk #antiELAB #NoToChinaExtradition
Participants hope to raise international awareness of the pro-democracy movement and anti-extradition law fight. hongkongfp.com/hong-kong-extr… #HongKong #China #antiELABhk #antiELAB #NoToChinaExtradition Photo: @demosisto.
@demosisto One volunteer in her 20s told HKFP that she was handing out lyrics of popular songs that protesters are expected to sing later. #HongKong #China #antiELABhk #antiELAB #NoToChinaExtradition hongkongfp.com/hong-kong-extr… @holmeschan_
@demosisto @holmeschan_ A woman, who gave her name as Ling, told HKFP that she was part of a Telegram group that divided the human chain into regional teams. "We coordinated how to split up the human chain so it would be manageable," she said. hongkongfp.com/hong-kong-extr…

John, a university student, joined the protest at Tsim Sha Tsui harborfront. He said he was born and raised in Hong Kong, and wanted to show unity.

“The people of Hong Kong need to stand together and show that they deserve their freedom, as they always will,” he said.

A Tsim Sha Tsui demonstrator in his 60s held a poster in Lithuanian.

“I studied the whole story [of the Baltic Chain] before coming. During the last protest at Victoria Park, we already thought about the idea, and we want to make the chain happen,” he said.
