Hundreds gathered in Kwun Tong to commemorate those who died or were injured during the ongoing protests.

The rally kicked off with an instrumental version of the protest song Glory to Hong Kong. The organiser read out the names of 19 people who died during the movement and asked participants at the Kwun Tong Promenade to observe a two-minute moment of silence, according to Apple Daily.

At the rally, participants were given coloured papers to fold commemorative paper cranes. The colourful origami birds filled the grass at the promenade as participants bowed three times in tribute.
