Hong Kong protesters

Hong Kong's protesters: We are still here

They carried bright yellow umbrellas, chanting "I want true democracy," as they festively made their way through Hong Kong's streets.

For the first time in more than a month, demonstrators peacefully took to the roads, many said, to make their voices heard and let their government and the world know that their fight for universal suffrage continues.

The government responded to Sunday's protest march with a statement on its website: "The (government) calls on all sectors of the community to adopt an accommodating, rational and pragmatic approach, as well as an inclusive attitude to express views, to forge consensus so that 5 million eligible voters can elect the Chief Executive by universal suffrage through 'one person, one vote' in 2017."

One bright yellow sign held high by marchers along the route had a different interpretation: "Democracy Bottom Line. Do Not Cross," it read.
