Pro-democracy Protesters in Hong Kong entreats US to intervene

Hong Kong riot

Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong are appealing to President Donald Trump for help as they march near the US consulate general in the city.

Some carried banners reading, “President Trump, please save Hong Kong” and “Make Hong Kong great again”.

The protests, now in their 14th straight week, have continued despite Hong Kong’s leadership finally meeting one of the protesters’ key demands.

China has consistently warned other countries not to interfere.

It says the situation in Hong Kong, a former British colony handed back to China in 1997, is purely its own internal affair.

Sunday’s crowd waved US flags and chanted pleas for the US to liberate Hong Kong from China.

They are asking the US to pass a proposed “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act”, which Democratic Senators are pushing for consideration next week.
