Protesters held a pro-China "Safeguard Hong Kong" rally in Admiralty's Tamar Park on Saturday, as the country was hit by another weekend of protests.
Footage shows groups of protesters waving the five-star China's flag and holding speeches. The rally was organised in support of the government and the police, with participants demanding an end to violence and chaos.
"We support the government and the police to protect our home… Hong Kong is forever a part of China," emphasised an attendee.
The rally comes after last week's airport's protests where violent clashes between demonstrators and police resulted in flights cancelled and delayed.
Protests have been taking place in Hong Kong since the end of March. Demonstrators are calling for the total withdrawal of a suspended bill that would allow the extradition of the city's residents to mainland China for trials.
