The world is keeping a close eye on events happening in Hong Kong and how China is managing the protests.

The Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF), which organises the ongoing protests in Hong Kong has not ruled out that it may seek support from foreign countries in the wake of a controversial opposition leaders' meeting with a U.S. diplomat.

The Chater Garden rally had been authorised by police, so its participants were spared the tear gas that has become a fixture at most recent protests.

"The government right now doesn't listen to the people, and the police are too violent", said Bobby Tse, a 76-year-old retiree who watched the pro-democracy march from a bridge. "It didn't used to be like this". We didn't have to protest every week.

He denounced the Hong Kong protesters' actions as "radical, violent and illegal" and said they were determined to undermine its "one country, two systems" arrangement. Supporters gave a thumbs-up to police officers and posed for photos with them.

A political expression permit issued to the group by the City of Vancouver says the protesters must comply with city bylaws and in no way "jeopardize the safety and comfort of others".

"Before, everyone in Hong Kong helped each other, it was very harmonious", he said.

Meanwhile in Paris around 50 people - Hong Kongers but also Chinese and Taiwanese - demonstrated in support of the protesters in the former British colony, chanting "freedom for Hong Kong" and even "freedom for China".

An overflow crowd rallied at a nearby public square before setting off on streets that had been closed to traffic, carrying signs that read "Protect the next generation" and umbrellas to ward off intermittent downpours.

Millions have hit the streets while clashes have broken out between police and small groups of hardcore protesters for ten consecutive weeks in the greatest challenge to Beijing's authority since the city's 1997 handover.

The local protests began in Belmore Park in Haymarket on Saturday where Tao Jiang, 28, a student from Burwood and originally from Nan Jing in China, said Hong Kong was part of China.

Battles between police firing tear gas and rubber bullets, and hardcore protesters using rocks, molotovs and slingshots, have since become routine in an global finance hub once renowned for stability.

Members of China's paramilitary People's Armed Police force have been training this week across the border in Shenzhen, fueling speculation that they could be sent in to suppress the protests. Officers didn't appear to hold major drills on Saturday, but could be seen doing jumping jacks and stretching inside a sports stadium. Dozens of army-green armored carriers and trucks were parked inside and outside the facility. At least 748 protesters have been arrested ever since the protests broke out in Hong Kong, according to the police on Friday. "We have the determination, the cohesiveness and the depth of resources to keep going", said a police commander.

On Friday evening the Stand With Hong Kong rally watched video messages from exiled dissidents including Brian Leung, who had lifted his face mask in front of TV cameras during the July 1 storming of the Legislative Council.
