Rallies against tear gas and for Trump in Hong Kong

In a Hong Kong square, hundreds gathered against police use of tear gas on Sunday.

Families with their children carrying placards and yellow balloons following a week of relative calm.

(SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese), 30-YEAR-OLD PURCHASING MANAGER AND MOTHER OF ONE, PEARL CHAN, SAYING: "It bothers everyone from kids to adults.

It's as if entire society needs to come to a halt, people don't dare to come out on account of the risk of tear gas." Their message does not seem to have been heard.

Elsewhere, police fired volleys of tear gas and deployed pepper spray.

- marking the end to a lull in violence since district elections a week ago that delivered an overwhelming victory to pro-democracy candidates.

Activists have pledged to maintain the momentum of their movement, and on Sunday thousands were marching, urging people not to forget the reason to protest - anger at perceived Chinese meddling in Hong Kong's freedoms. That march followed another earlier in the day to the U.S. consulate where the American national anthem was sung as a thanks to President Donald Trump.

Trump has recently signed into law two bills that would ban exports of anti-riot munitions to China and impose possible sanctions based on its handling of Hong Kong, which drew a sharp rebuke from Beijing's foreign ministry.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TEACHER, RAMA CHAN, 30, SAYING: "The U.S. and China have many trade issues and U.S. can put very big pressure to China to give Hong Kong democracy." But at a rival pro-China rally they weren't so keen with this Beijing backer saying that Hong Kongers don't need to rely on the U.S. and that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong.
