The protesters, mostly domestic workers, demanded an end to the “live in” rule which forces them to live with employers, as well as a rise in their minimum wage to HK$5,000.

Some held banners opposed to US President Donald Trump. One group, Socialist Action, accused him of having a “sexist, racist and Islamophobic agenda.”
