Tens Of Thousands Protest Jailing Of Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Leaders

2

Last week a Hong Kong court sentenced Joshua Wong, Nathan Law and Alex Chow — three young organizers of the protests that rocked Hong Kong three years ago — to jail terms ranging from six to eight months.

They were convicted of unlawful assembly after they stormed government property in June 2014, leading to the 79-day sit-in of major roads in the heart of the city’s financial district.

On Sunday, about 22,000 demonstrators walked from the district of Wan Chai to the Court of Final Appeal, where the three activists are expected to lodge an appeal against their sentences. Read more at CNN.
