New Year's Eve protests in Hong Kong

Anti-government demonstrators protest during the 2020 countdown on New Year s Eve in Hong Kong, China, January 1, 2020. Thousands of revelers welcomed in 2020 on neon-lit promenades along the picturesque Victoria Harbour, breaking into pro-democracy chants as the clocks struck midnight after more than half a year of often violent unrest. Authorities had canceled the popular new year fireworks for the first time in a decade, citing security concerns. A "Symphony of Lights" took place instead, involving projections on the city's tallest skyscrapers after the countdown to midnight.

Anti-government protesters take part in a New Year countdown demonstration at Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong. There were small-scale pyrotechnics on waterfront rooftops, but the grandiose fireworks launched from vessels in the center of the harbor, broadcast around the world every year, were absent. The carnival atmosphere on the harbor was interrupted as parts of the crowd of thousands watching the show began chanting protest slogans, such as "Liberate Hong Kong! Revolution of our times" and "Five demands, not one less."
