HKFP Lens: Human chain, origami and ‘Lennon Wall’ post-its at Hong Kong solidarity demo in New York

Around 200 people gathered at New York’s Washington Square Park on Sunday in solidarity with the Hong Kong protest movement. The crowd sang protest songs, created a colourful post-it “Lennon Wall” message board, folded origami “freenix” birds and formed a human chain. Activist group NY4HK helped organise the event –  photographer Jimin Kim was on the scene.
