Around 30 people marched from Western Police station to the Liaison Office on Saturday, vowing to file an official complaint with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) over the detention of three Guangdong activists.

The three - Zeng Feiyang, He Xiaobo and Meng Han - helped workers with collective bargaining and organising strike actions.

The group said the prosecution of the three activists was political oppression, and Labour Party lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan said the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions will file an ILO complaint against Beijing.
