Citizens rally to support union in Hong Kong

Citizens in China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region rallied on Sunday, the first day of the new year, to support union in Hong Kong.

"I chose to attend the rally on Jan. 1, because I want to let my voice heard that I'm a Chinese and Hong Kong is a part of China -- this is a fact and can't be changed by anyone," said 30-year-old Chan Shiu-yan, while holding his mobile phone to video the event, which was organized by Defend Hong Kong Campaign, a patriotic group.

Lam, who declined to provide her full name, brought her two grandsons to the rally. "I often teach them to be patriotic. We are Chinese, and this is the fact. It can help them understand it better, if I take them to such a rally to see many citizens are showing their love for the country and Hong Kong," she said.
