Hong Kong braces for New Year Pro-democracy rally

People in wheelchairs, kids and the elderly. Folks from all walks of life are taking part in the #NewYear Hong Kong pro-democracy rally.

Thousands marched through Hong Kong as protest leaders pledged to keep fighting for their demands in the new year. Police and demonstrators had clashed during the midnight.

Hong Kong was readying for a massive pro-democracy rally after seeing in the New Year with an evening of peaceful protests. But, these turned into tear gas-choked clashes between hardcore demonstrators and police.

Thousands gathered before midnight across the financial hub, including along Victoria Harbour and at a nightlife hotspot.
 
The city has been battered by more than six months of unrest with millions marching.

Confrontations in which police have fired tear gas and rubber bullets have also taken place, while protesters have responded with petrol bombs.

Police have arrested nearly 6,500 people since June – nearly a third of them aged under 20.
