Thousands march for Hong Kong democracy

From the beeb:
"Tens of thousands of people have taken part in a march in Hong Kong to demand a fully democratic political system.
Trade unions, activists and civic groups joined ordinary citizens, some carrying banners denouncing China.

They snaked round streets lined with sky-scrapers towards government offices chanting "now or never" and "do you want a clown or a chief executive?".

Campaigners say they want the Chinese autonomous territory's next leader to be elected by universal suffrage."
Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong and China: can I suggest as a strategy that you find some way to involve the Israelis or the Americans? Otherwise I regret to inform you that no-one is going to give a shit.
