Hong Kong: Lantern Waving Protesters Take to Hills
Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters took to the hills to form flashlight-carrying human chains, Friday, September 13, using the colorful Mid-Autumn Festival as a backdrop to the latest in more than three months of unrest.
A tennis tournament and a London musical are the latest events postponed in Hong Kong out of concerns over safety and disruptions from pro-democracy protests.
K-pop concerts, Chanel fashion shows and international conferences have been canceled, postponed or moved out of the semi-autonomous Chinese territory during more than three months of demonstrations. More rallies are expected this weekend.
On Friday, organizers said the Hong Kong Open women’s tennis tournament scheduled for Oct. 5-13 was being postponed indefinitely. The event was to be held at Victoria Park, a gathering point for many previous protests.
