HONG KONG — Hand-in-hand, protesters formed a 28-mile human chain across 39 train stations in Hong Kong on Friday.
The demonstrators sang songs as they held small signs that said, “Thank you for supporting freedom and democracy.”
The latest demonstration in the 11-week movement that stemmed from outrage over a proposed extradition bill was inspired by 1989 protests across Baltic states.
On Aug. 23, 1989, the so-called Baltic Way involved 2 million Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians protesting Soviet domination of the region.
“I joined the Hong Kong Way because it’s peaceful,” protester Peter Cheung, 27, told Reuters, referring to the campaign’s name. “This is the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way. I hope there will be a bigger chance to make an international noise.” More
I love everything about this. Stay strong.

I admire their courage and resolve. They are a beacon for so many more people across the world who would dare to say to a tyrant: I am free!

Meanwhile in the USA, millions and millions of Democrat voters are demanding to be enslaved by Socialism. Go figure.

In America, these same people would be assaulted by Antifa.
This is a ‘real protest’ for freedom & democracy,
not an ‘ANTIFA riot’ like we have in the USA!
