Protesters sing unofficial anthem 'Glory to Hong Kong' on anniversary of unrest
Around 30 to 40 protesters gathered at a Hong Kong mall to sing their unofficial anthem "Glory to Hong Kong" one year after protests began. Newsflare's filmer said: "One year ago, violent protests disrupted the reading of the extradition bill in the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. Today, the atmosphere was very much changed with a protest movement appearing to lose momentum. Between the pandemic social gathering regulations prohibiting protests and a sense of hoplessness after China announced the direct adoption of a national security law, attendance to even the most innocuous protests keeps dwindling. "Around 30 to 40 protesters had, however, gathered in the Megabox mall, in Kowloon Bay, on June 12, to sing 'Glory To Hong Kong' and chant slogans such as 'one nation, one Hong Kong' with a flag reading 'Liberate Hong Kong, Revolution of our Times.' Other protesters could be seen holding handwritten boards featuring, among other slogans, 'never forgive, never forget.'
