Hong Kong protests cross half-year mark with rally
Hong Kong-Protests Marchers are again expected to fill Hong Kong streets in a rally that will test the enduring appeal of the city's protest movement marking a half year of demonstrations.
Police granted approval for the march on Sunday afternoon, which could boost participant numbers.
The rally was called by the Civil Human Rights Front, a group that has organized some of the biggest demonstrations since hundreds of thousands of protesters first marched on June 9.
That rally protested now-withdrawn proposals to allow criminal suspects to be sent for trial in mainland China.
The movement has snowballed from there.
