We couldn't hear what the speakers were saying, many of them soft spoken which seemed strange considering the march was about channeling people's anger and shock from Wednesday's incident. A nearby generator conspired against us hearing too.
"A Chinese couplet on a campus poster from my days at the Hong Kong University came to mind, when I was lying on bed after the operations. It read, 'A pen in hand, off my chest to tell the truth. For freedom is without fear or favour'.

When we finally arrived -- just over two hours later, organizers passed out small strips of blue ribbon with double-sided tape to stick onto banners representing our desire for press freedom.
