Video: Pro-Democracy protests take place in Hong Kong

Thousands of people participated in the annual pro-democracy rally in Hong Kong on July 1. The organisers of this year’s march expected a record turnout due to the looming 2017 deadline for electoral reform and growing dissatisfaction with alleged interference in Hong Kong’s semi-autonomous government by Beijing. The annual protests coincides with the 17th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Credit: Instagram/k_terryw
