12:12 pm
a couple of weekends ago that was where the pro-democracy politicians and the political parties secured a majority in 17 of the district councils this group they want a rerun of that council because they believe that there was rigging involved they're also calling on the protest movement to stop the pro-democracy or anti-government demonstrations which have lasted for about 6 months now we're now about to hit the 6 month anniversary they condemning the protesters calling them violent and radical. but also another message here is showing support for the police in the place have been accused of using excessive force by some of the demonstrators in recent months this group is showing their support for those up place so certainly the mind message here you might ever see behind me the flags the key messages here and here is that they are showing their loyalty and patriotism to mainland china ok so let's look ahead to sunday our rally that's going to be organized by the pro-democracy groups what what can we expect from that.
12:13 pm
sometimes rallies organized by the civil human rights front this is the organization that part of a group that's organized the big mass rallies in the last 6 months the ones that attracted the one and 2000000 people at this particular rally it's a march from central park into central hong kong it's being given to police approval which is an interesting move because it means and i've actually been in the place of objected to they were a recent quests to hold similar rallies but that place approval a means that they expect more people together they're hoping to raise $1000000.00 we're yet to see whether or not that will happen but also it comes in the wake of these district council elections as i mentioned a couple of weeks ago so it's it's they're hoping to attract big numbers and again this organization the civil human rights front is the one behind it and the big pro-democracy groups which has quite a widespread support in hong kong from those pro-democracy candidates as well as they the people here in hong kong so sometimes really it will starts in victoria pocket it will go through to central and again we do expect it to be big all right
