Hong Kong: Why joining the rally?

This year many bloggers explain why they still joined the July 1st marches in Hong Kong even the agenda was not very clear. Duimanpark says that even though universal suffrage is impossible under the existing political situation, he continued to demonstrate for it (zh). HungOneBean in InMediaHK describes people who joined the rally as Sisyphus and democracy was like the rolling stone (zh). Glutter says she went out “because it's a beautiful day and it's a good day to walk with a few hundred thousand people who believe in freedom“.
