He also said that the conference did not have the number of participants, but according to police statistics, I believe there are more than 10,000 people.
During the rally, a reporter was bumped by the participants. Leo responded that at the beginning of the rally, he had called on the public to restrain and respect the media. He believed that he had done his part.
[16:36] The conference led the audience to mourn for one minute for the dead cleaner, Robert, and salute the police, and then called on the assembly members to disperse peacefully through Admiralty and Wan Chai.
[15:30] Shirley, a citizen who had asked the Chief Executive Lin Zheng Yue'e to set up an independent investigation committee during a community dialogue, said that he was bottomed out afterwards, worried about his personal safety, and fortunately was protected by the company. He had a few days off during the vacation, and went to the Mainland to play. I went to the mainland and actually felt safe.

Another Mr. Yin who spoke on stage shared that during the earlier participation in the national anthem flash event, he met masked demonstrators in Amoy Gardens, fearing that his personal safety would be threatened.

She bluntly angered and could not care, but thought that the other party must be punished by law.
One hour into the rally, the participants had filled Tamar Park.
The organizer, Leo, interrupted the speech and asked whether the reporter of "Hong Kong 01" was present, saying that he had been interviewed earlier, but found that the theme of the rally was distorted as "five major demands" after reporting the street, and criticized the media. It would be unprofessional to misbehave, and people present booed.
However, after reviewing the entire related report, "Hong Kong 01" never described that the rally theme was related to the "five major appeals", but only pointed out that there was a socialist and socialist strike strike conference in Edinburgh Place, Central, which included the "five major appeals". The allegations are wrong and out of context.
[13:05] The rally officially started, and more than a thousand people gathered in Tamar Park. The promoter Leo said that the rally was a voice for Hong Kong people and also represented a Chinese compatriot who could not participate.

He also said that he hopes that Hong Kong people can promote China to the world's number one economy. Emphasizing that one country, two systems is a step towards democracy, "I want to make one country, two systems a reality forever in Hong Kong."
He also reminded the assemblers to follow the order. In case of conflict or provocation, "Don't speak swearing, don't ditch." A number of riot police guarded outside Tamar Park. Many rallies came to invite photos and shake hands, and there were also middle-aged people. The lady made a gesture of "heart beating", the police officer smiled, and raised her fingers to respond.
[12:25] About half an hour before the start of the rally, dozens of citizens gathered in Tamar Park. Mandarin speakers also arrived. Citizens and the national flag were excited to take a picture.
[12:20] Leo, the initiator of the complaint of violent assembly, saw that many demonstrators in the society have used the concept of violent venting, but this is not the mode of peaceful coexistence that Hong Kong people want. Many citizens who have opposite opinions have also been attacked. He himself He was also attacked by the demonstrators at the airport on August 9, and was quickly raised to the bottom. "It is a white horror to the citizens of our place." He hoped that he could make a noise through the rally and stir up anyway. He also said that he did not think that the police had used excessive force, and this time he also wished to express his gratitude.
