Thousands march in Hong Kong – AP

Story.Hk.Protest.Ap From AP, via CNN.com

Tens of thousands of people marched through the streets of Hong Kong Sunday to protest the slow pace of democratic reforms, intensifying pressure on the government to speed up the movement toward full democracy.

Organizers said about 250,000 people, with many clad in black, took part in the march — much higher than analysts’ estimate of between 50,000 to 100,000. But police said they counted only 40,000 people when the march began in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park. Many joined the rally along the way.
