HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hundreds of Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters on Saturday rallied against the government’s attempt to ban a political party, saying it dealt the most serious threat to the city’s freedom of association since its return to Chinese rule. The city’s security chief, John Lee, said the police had advised him to ban the Hong Kong National Party, which openly promotes the city’s secession from China. Mr Lee said the group has not been officially banned, saying he could not do so before it has a chance to explain itself.
