Huge Anti Government Demo in Hong Kong

A massive 1st of July Protest demonstration is still under way in
Hong Kong.

15 years after the Handover to China this is one of the biggest
demonstrations in many years; possibly 500.000 people.
Fuelled by frustrations about the non-elected leadership and the
growing gap between rich and poor.
Many young demonstrators were waving the former Hong Kong
colonial flag and even Maggie Thatcher came back in the picture.
This time as the Brit who betrayed Hong Kong to China.
