"We only hope that the government could understand our will, that they could respond to us and change the way they work given the fact that we came out even though we are young."

"The reason I came here is because I think that as a student in Hong Kong we should stand up for Hong Kong. As what happened recently here, we couldn't stay silent anymore."
8. SOUNDBITE (Cantonese) Anson Ling, Student
"Since June, there have been horrible incidents happening and the government is still not willing to give us any positive response. We are really angry with that. So, I come out today to express my own opinion."
High school students thronged a square in downtown Hong Kong Thursday to rally for political reforms as residents gird for further anti-government protests.
Hundreds of teenagers, wearing black and holding umbrellas in the oppressive heat turned out for the rally, one of many demonstrations organised by different groups.
They chanted "Liberate Hong Kong" and "Revolution of our times" and called for Hong Kong's Beijing-backed leader, Carrie Lam, to step down before breaking into groups to discuss the city's political future.
Hong Kong has been gripped by sometimes violent protests for more than two months, led by young people demanding the withdrawal of an unpopular extradition bill and full democracy.
The bill, which would have seen suspects extradited to mainland China where the judiciary is not independent, was eventually shelved.
