HONG KONG Tens of thousands of Hong Kong protesters marched for full democracy on Wednesday and called on the Chinese-controlled city's leader to resign, just weeks after lawmakers voted down an electoral reform package backed by China. The turnout, estimated by organisers at 48,000, was one of the lowest for the march marking the anniversary of Hong Kong's return from British to Chinese rule in 1997. Last year's protest drew more than half a million people when debate over the city's democratic reforms was near fever pitch #China #Japan #Middle East #Europe #Hong Kong

Hong Kong umbrella protest gives topical relevance to Tiananmen vigil| Reuters

HONG KONG Tens of thousands of people are due to attend an annual candlelight vigil in Hong Kong on Thursday to mark Beijing's Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989 as tension lingers in the financial hub from its pro-democracy protests last year. More than six months since Hong Kong police demolished the last encampments of protesters agitating for full democracy in the city, the organisers of this year's June 4 vigil are aiming to link the events, which is likely to antagonise China. "Occupy was in a way a mini-June 4 for Hong Kong," said city legislator and vigil organiser Lee Cheuk-yan, referring to last year's Occupy Central protests. #Economy #India #Technology #science #Hong Kong #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico
