Solidarity from Australia with Hong Kong protesters
A huge solidarity demonstration in Brisbane on July 27 expressed solidarity with Hong Kong democracy protests.
The key demands were: complete withdrawal of the Hong Kong extradition bill; for the Hong Kong chief executive to resign; retract the claim that recent protests were riots; investigation of police abuses; and universal suffrage in Hong Kong.
The protest took place days after a large number of Chinese students sought to intimidate Hong Kong solidarity activists at the University of Queensland.
