Demonstrators gathered in the atrium of the Landmark mall in Central, Hong Kong, on April 29, holding up the territory’s old colonial flag and singing protest melodies as anti-government demonstrations began to resume after the COVID-19 lockdown.
This footage shows the protesters singing “Glory to Hong Kong,” a song widely regarded as a theme for the city’s anti-government activists, who have been demonstrating since June 9, 2019.
According to local reports, security at the mall continuously reminded all participants in the demonstration to maintain a safe distance from each other, due to COVID-19 concerns, and police arrived to remind the demonstrators that they were breaking Hong Kong’s social-distancing guidelines, which ban gatherings of more than four people. The protesters eventually dispersed.
A similar event was held the previous day, April 28, at Hong Kong’s International Finance Centre Mall, attracting an impersonator of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Credit: SocREC via Storyful
