HONG KONG: Protesters in Hong Kong on Thursday rallied in support of a separate Catalonia with some waving Catalan flags and banners urging “a fight for freedom together”.

In Hong Kong’s pro-democracy demonstrations, millions have taken to the streets for five months in sometimes violent clashes over what they see as China’s tightening grip.

Most protesters in the former British colony want greater democracy, among other demands, although a small minority is calling for independence.

In that sense, they share some common ground with separatist demonstrators in Spain’s wealthy northeast region of Catalonia, which was rocked by protests after nine separatist leaders were sentenced this month to long prison terms for a failed independence bid in 2017.
