A group of local musicians on Monday began a five-day strike, pressing the government to respond to the five core demands of anti-government protesters.

Dozens of people rallied at Chater Garden in Central to mark the start of the strike, singing songs and chanting slogans.

Martin Lau from the Hong Kong Music Industry Union helped organise the rally. He said the Christmas period is the busiest season of the year in the music industry and he said a strike during this period would cause a big impact.

“I believe the strike is a good way to stop the society and make the society to think again what happened in Hong Kong… and to make the government to listen to the voice of the people,” Lau said.
