    People from all walks of life in the New Territories of Hong Kong held a vehicle parade on Saturday, November 12 in support of last week's interpretation of Article 104 of Hong Kong's mini constitution, believed to help counter the advocacy of Hong Kong independence.

    The participants in Saturday's parade expressed strong objection against so-called "Hong Kong independence."

    "Delegates from more than 1,500 organizations have joined today's parade. Because we know we must call on all the residents in Hong Kong to support the NPC interpretation of Basic Law. That is very important to Hong Kong's future development. I believe most Hong Kong residents oppose Hong Kong independence."

    "I'm here to protest against 'Hong Kong independence', whose advocates are bad, absolutely bad. We are living a good life now and what they have done undermines Hong Kong's stability. So I must come here to protest against them."

    The procession of vehicles finally arrived at the headquarters of the SAR government. Some of their delegates handed in a petition to the SAR government to support the NPC interpretation of the Basic Law.

    The latest explanation applies to an article relating to oath-taking by local officers in certain public institutions.

    It requires an oath taker, when assuming office, to accurately, completely and solemnly read out the oath which includes the words: "uphold the Basic Law of Hong Kong and bear allegiance to the Special Administrative Region."

    It's deemed as an obvious response to the provocative display by two elected lawmakers who publicly advocated "Hong Kong independence" and insulted the Chinese nation during a swearing-in ceremony last month.

    The participants at Saturday's parade demanded the disqualification of certain legislators-elect.
