Hong Kong protesters rally at airport to share 'the truth'

Thousands of pro-democracy activists chanted for reform on Friday as they staged a sit-in at Hong Kong airport, hoping to win international support for their movement after two months of protests.

"No rioters, only tyranny," the demonstrators chanted as they began a three-day action -- the latest in a string of protests that have rocked the international financial hub.

Activists, some dressed in the movement's signature black, sat on the floor in the airport's arrivals hall and held up signs in Chinese and English condemning police violence.

"Save Hong Kong from tyranny and police brutality!" read one sign on a piece of cardboard.

They cheered loudly as activists overcame objections from airport staff and hung a long banner from the railings of the upper floor reading "LIBERATE HK. REVOLUTION NOW."

The protests that began two months ago over a controversial bill to allow extradition to mainland China have now morphed into a broader movement demanding democratic reforms.
