Graduating HK students back pro-democracy movement

University students wearing Guy Fawkes masks pose during a news conference to support anti-government protests before their graduation ceremony at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong, China, Tuesday. The pro-democracy protest, triggered by the proposed extradition bill in March, evolved into mass protests with Hong Kong residents calling for the release of arrested activists and the resignation of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam.
