More Than 500 Arrested After Democracy Rally In Hong Kong
Hong Kong police arrested more than 500 people who refused to leave a street in the city’s financial district Wednesday, a day after tens of thousands of people joined a massive march to demand democracy that’s free from China’s interference. The march has become an annual affair held on the anniversary of the day China took over Hong Kong from Britain on June 1, 1997 with the promise to give the city a high degree of autonomy for 50 years. But there is growing unease among its residents — especially the youth — that the Western-style civil liberties they’ve know all their lives are being eroded as Beijing has increasingly tried to impose its authority over the freewheeling capitalist enclave.
