Hong Kong braces for mass rally on China handover anniversary
Hong Kong braced for another mass rally Monday as the city marks the anniversary of its handover to China, with attendance at an annual pro-democracy march likely to be bolstered by huge recent anti-government protests. The rallies are the latest manifestation of growing fears that China is stamping down on the city's unique freedoms and culture with the help of the finance hub's pro-Beijing leaders. Although Hong Kong was returned from British to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, it is still administered separately under an arrangement known as "one country, two systems".
