Hong Kong's anti-government, pro-democracy protests continued for the 11th straight weekend on Saturday. Despite heavy rain, thousands of the city's teachers donned the movement's signature black garb in a show of solidarity with young protesters. The event was organized by the Hong Kong Professional Teachers' Union and consisted of a march to Government House, the official residence of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam. The teachers tied white ribbons to a fence near the building and carried signs that read "Protect the next generation." The rallygoers implored Hong Kong's leaders to answer the protesters' demands and curb police violence during the demonstrations. The teachers' union said more than 22,000 marched.
