Hong Kong Protesters Mark 6 Month Point12/12 06:31

   HONG KONG (AP) -- Hundreds of people joined an evening demonstration among 
Hong Kong's skyscrapers on Thursday marking six months since the city's protest 
movement began. 

   The crowd chanted "Hong Kong people, revenge!" in anger at police use of 
tear gas and widespread arrests. 

   The "United We Stand" rally came amid concerns from some protesters that the 
movement is flagging as it enters its seventh month, as the government shows no 
signs of making further concessions.

   It also comes as the government is facing stepped-up pressure to agree to an 
independent probe of police violence that has angered many in the 
semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
