(06-05 19:04)

Organizers of the annual July 1 pro-democracy march are expecting at least 100,000 people to take part.
The Civil Human Rights Front says this is a crucial year for Hong Kong because of political reform, and only a high turnout can ensure the people's desire for true democracy is well received by Beijing.
The Front called on supporters of democracy to leave their differences behind and unite to fight for universal suffrage. --RTHK
