Thousands of protesters, dressed mostly in black, have held a rally at Hong Kong‘s international airport to “educate” visitors about the demonstrations currently gripping the semi-autonomous city state as it braces for another weekend of protests.
Flight attendants and airport staff joined protesters on Friday, with many sitting on the ground in the airport’s main arrivals hall. Some held protest banners, chanted anti-government slogans and handed out leaflets as travellers looked on.
One group used a television to show a satirical version of an airline safety announcement video detailing the protesters’ demands and warning of demonstrations in the city.
