This Stunning Drone Footage Reveals Just How Massive Hong Kong’s Protests Really Are


Protests in Hong Kong show no sign of stopping, as hundreds of thousands of demonstrators continue to demand greater autonomy from the government in Beijing. This video, featured on Storyful, by Nero Chan (uploaded to his Facebook account on September 29), offers a glimpse into the magnitude of the movement. Tomorrow is National Day, a public holiday across China. Activists say there’s a chance the protests could swell even beyond what you can see in this video.
