“Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement took to the streets again Sunday for a massive and peaceful march. An estimated 1.7 million people — a quarter of the territory's population — took part.

Defying a police ban and bad weather, Hong Kongers marched in peace, fueled by anger. Overflowing Victoria Park — the city's historic site for people power protests — they spilled into the streets turning main roads into a sea of umbrellas.

Even with the rain — torrential at times — it's not stopping all of these protesters from rallying. They're angry and frustrated and committed to getting their voices heard by the government.

What started out June 9 as a demand for the government to revoke a hated extradition bill has exploded into calls for greater democratic reform.”
