Hongkongers form human chains across the city to voice demands to government

Thousands of Hongkongers joined hands and formed human chains across different parts of the city. The protest exercise was inspired by the Baltic Way, which took place exactly 30 years ago. The peaceful political protest against Soviet rule in 1989 drew two million people, who joined hands to form a human chain spanning several hundred kilometres across Eastern Europe’s Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Participants forming human chains across parts of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon say they wanted to take the opportunity to reiterate their five demands to the government, which includes a full-withdrawal of the controversial extradition bill, an independent inquiry into police actions, and universal suffrage.

A Hong Kong ghost town
