Mainland paper downplays July 1 march
(07-02 12:39)

The July 1 march took place yesterday was considered a party by many participants, mainland state-run newspaper Global Times said in a commentary. The number of participants does not reflect the real situation of Hong Kong, the paper said.
Global Times added that any march, no matter how many people participated, will not force the central government to back down.
The march organizers say 510,000 people took part in the democracy rally, but police estimated that 98,600 people were there. The University of Hong Kong's Public Opinion Program put the number of demonstrators at between 154,000 and 172,000.
