Thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong staged a Thanksgiving rally on Thursday evening in response to President Donald Trump signing two bills in support of the citys pro-democracy movement.
Demonstrators took to the streets shortly after the president signed the legislation. Some draped themselves in U.S. flags and expressed gratitude for the administrations support.
The rationale for us having this rally is to show our gratitude and thank the U.S Congress and also President Trump for passing the bill, student Sunny Cheung, 23, told Reuters. We are really grateful about that and we really appreciate the effort made by Americans who support Hong Kong, who stand with Hong Kong, who do not choose to side with Beijing.

I was confident Donald Trump would sign the law because we are fighting for universal freedom. Everyone globally should support that, another young woman told the news outlet. But we do want to give thanks to those around the globe that support us, a small city like Hong Kong, we thank them for their attention.
American Flags Everywhere.
Wow. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for BRAVE HEROES SUCH AS THEY!
Expect Lebron to issue a statement for the NBA saying the President should stay out of issues that he doesn’t understand, while also stating that Thanksgiving Day is a racist holiday.
Not our concern.
Thanks KC_Lion. It's HILARIOUS that the Congressional nimrods' attempt to embarrass and undermine our President has resulted in a huge PR bump for him and for the US, y'know, other than the anti-American POSes who support the dictatorships.
Hands over their hearts too.. Very symbolic!
China no likey. lol
They love America more than does the NFL.
And the NBA lowbrain “stars”
“Thanks KC_Lion. It’s HILARIOUS that the Congressional nimrods’ attempt to embarrass and undermine our President...”
How could this bill possibly have been meant to embarrass or undermine the President?
Because of the trade talks? Maybe you’d not heard of those.
Beautiful display...President Trump, we should give China the NBA in exchange for Hong Kong. It would be a Win Win...
Unlike the former First Wookie those Hong Kong citizens KNOW what that flag stands for.
Take THAT Michelle “all that for a piece of cloth” Obama.
“Hands over their hearts too.. Very symbolic!”
Yep. Made the screen get all blurry for a couple of minutes.
Amen, ain’t that the truth!!
The hand-held posters have 51 stars on the U.S. flag. I wonder if they’re saying they want Hong Kong to be a U.S. state.
Some of the protesters have been (like) Antifa and others definitely not. Complicated situation.
That man. The beacon for the world.
