They marched in sweltering heat through streets blocked off for the event by police, with thousands of officers deployed along a route ending at city government headquarters.

Protesters waved placards denouncing Hong Kong and Beijing leaders and banners in support of a wide range of causes. One marcher carried a poster depicting Xi wearing a Mao Zedong-style cap that read "Overthrow the Communist Party" and "Overthrow Xi Jinping."
