6. Various of civil servants gathering at Charter Garden
Hong Kong civil servants joined in anti-government street protests Friday as China's top diplomat accused the U.S. and other Western nations of "fanning the flames" of the demonstrations which he said aim to undermine the semi-autonomous region's prosperity, stability and security.
Several thousand serving and retired members of the city's civil service joined the event Friday evening, which was notable for the lack of police-protester clashes that have overshadowed protest actions over recent days.
Participation in the rally did not come without risk, with officials warning civil servants they could be disciplined if they showed partiality or criticized specific officials and policies.
Civil servants in Hong Kong are traditionally politically neutral.
