IN stifling heat and humidity, tens of thousands of protesters swarmed through the streets of Hong Kong today to send a defiant call for democracy to communist rulers in China.

I dont think 350,000 is the majority, so thats real not in line with democracy!

Any time 350,000 people get together for a rally in one location, especially the size of Hong Kong, you could probably with real safety say that this is what the bulk of all people in that city want.

They enjoyed democracy under British rule, they want that back.

They do not want independance, just democracy.

Thats huge, according to CIA book of facts the population of HK in 2004 was 6.9 million. So 350,000 is 5% of its population. That is a huge percentage of people to turn out to protest.
