The human chain is one of several events planned in what will be the 12th consecutive weekend of protests in the semi-autonomous Chinese city.
On Saturday, protesters have planned a “stress test” of Hong Kong’s international airport, which will involve traveling to the airport using all, and any, means available to them, to put pressure on airport transport and create a surge in traffic. Protesters have been urged by organizers to go as slow as possible to create maximum disruption.
However, a High Court order on Friday extended an injunction order prohibiting protesters from entering the airport.
Also planned are protests in Kwun Tong, in Kowloon, on Saturday and others in Tseun Wan and Kwai Ching districts on Sunday.
The protests this weekend are coming off the back of a massive demonstration on August 18 that attempted to restore peace after weeks of violence.
Organizers said 1.7 million protesters of all ages joined the march through the downtown areas, transforming much of the city center into a sea of slow moving umbrellas.
