Socialist Action held a solidarity protest in Hong Kong on Sunday against the election of Donald Trump as US president.

Demonstrators marched from Chater Garden in Central to the nearby US consulate calling for mass resistance and for a new, representative American political party.

Protesters were joined by League of Social Democrats lawmaker Leung Kwok-hung, former lawmaker Tsang Kin-shing, as well as “Howard,”  a local impersonator of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
