- Story Text: Thousands of black-clad protesters descended onto the streets of Hong Kong on Tuesday (October 1) in a call for greater democracy and freedom.
"Many people got injured in the past four months and some protesters got arrested for no reason," said a protester adding that she was here to fight for Hong Kong's democracy and freedom.
The former British colony has been racked by nearly four months of street clashes and demonstrations, posing the gravest popular challenge to Chinese President Xi Jinping since he came to power.
Protesters have vowed to seize on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, hijacking an occasion Beijing sees as an opportunity to showcase China's economic and military progress.
