Numbers dwindle at lunchtime Hong Kong rallies

Hong Kong: Owing to the cold weather and rain, an increasingly small number of Hong Kong demonstrators continued their daily lunchtime rallies on Thursday, but protesters have vowed to hold a major anti-government march on Sunday.

At 12.45 p.m., a few dozen people gathered at a footbridge outside Exchange Square in Central, chanting political slogans and yelling, "see you at Victoria Park", reports the South China Morning Post newspaper.Some held placards that read, "independent review committee is not equal to independent commission of inquiry".

In the industrial district of Kwai Chung, about 150 protesters marched as police watched and filmed from a nearby playground, while about 100 demonstrators joined a rally in Cheung Sha Wan, with only dozens showing up in Kowloon Bay.

The Sunday march has been called by the Civil Human Rights Front to urge the government to uphold its commitment to human rights in handling protests.It was waiting for the police's letter of no objection. Past demonstrations by the front have drawn huge numbers.
