Activists across the globe held demonstrations on Saturday, August 17, to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong who have continued to call for democratic reform within their region, local media reported. This video shows a crowd of people walking through the streets of London as they shout “Democracy for Hong Kong.” The video shows protesters holding signs that say “Solidarity with the revolt in Hong Kong,” “No China extradition,” and “Democracy will prevail!” The anti-government demonstrations in Hong Kong began earlier this year in opposition to a now-shelved extradition bill. The London event aimed to show support for the region and pressure UK officials to take a legislative stance and intervene with “human rights violations” in Hong Kong, event organizers said. Demonstrations were held in Australia on Saturday, with different events organized in favor of and against the Hong Kong government, reports said. Pro-democracy Hong Kong supporters in Scotland also planned a protest for Saturday. The international demonstrations came alongside a series of marches and rallies in Hong Kong on Saturday, with events organized for both pro-democracy and government supporters.

People in Hong Kong continued months of ongoing pro-democracy protests with a series of marches and rallies on Saturday, August 17, the South China Morning Post reported. Teachers marched through the rainy streets in solidarity with pro-democracy protesters on Saturday morning. The teachers’ march was followed by another march in Hung Hom in the afternoon. The anti-government demonstrations began earlier this year in opposition to a now-shelved extradition bill. In the evening, protesters gathered in Mong Kok and other areas to continue demonstrations. This video shows police, outfitted in helmets and shields, standing outside the Mong Kok Police Station as purple and green lasers are shined on them. Shining lasers at cameras could help obscure surveillance and help conceal protesters’ identities, media reports said. Referring to lasers as “offensive weapons,” police said they have injured officers and damaged sensors in some cameras, a member of the Hong Kong Police Force said to media during a press conference in early August. Reports said eggs were also thrown at officers in Mong Kok on Saturday. Citing officials, local media said police planned to disperse the crowd of more than 100 people and said law enforcement warned protesters of their “illegal assembly” near the station. Thousands of government supporters also gathered on Saturday for an “anti-violence” rally at Tamar Park in Admiralty, reports said. Credit: @LostDutchHK via Storyful

A controlled avalanche was carried out on Mount Ruapehu, New Zealand, on August 15. Video shot from a helicopter shows the the avalanche slowing as it picks up wetter snow. General Manager for Safety and Environment at Mount Ruapehu, Andy Hoyle, said, “Each storm leaves its mark in the stratigraphy of the snowpack. Layers build upon layers, a kind of temporary record of time. Oldest at the bottom, youngest on top. Occasionally, some layers are weaker than others and can fail when the load of the layers above gets too heavy". Hoyle said “We know that if we left these avalanche hazards uncontrolled, they could occur naturally in the right conditions, threatening personnel and infrastructure".

Australian Capital Territory Police released footage on August 17 after three people were seen using grinders in an attempt to break into a parking payment machine at a Belconnen shopping center. The incident took place at around 2.40 am on August 2 and involved three people using “petrol-powered grinders and a crow bar in an attempt to access the cash box on two parking payment machines” on level two of the parking lot at Westfield Belconnen, police said. Police said they believe the suspects were disturbed by officers responding to a call from shopping centre security at 2.45 am. The attempt was “brazen, but also largely futile,” police said, as the cash boxes are emptied regularly and many people pay for parking using cards, so the machines don’t typically contain much cash. Police asked anyone with information to come forward. Credit: ACT Policing via Storyful

A football fan was left stunned after his friends in Cumming, Georgia, managed to get several Kansas City Chiefs players to sign a football as a birthday gift. This video shows Drake Jennings surprising Connor Miller with an autographed Kansas City Chiefs edition football on August 15. Miller, who has cerebral palsy, turned 19 years old a day earlier, Jennings said. “No way!” Miller said after his friend rattled off the list of players who signed the ball. Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman Jr, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce, safety Tyrann Mathieu, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, offensive tackle Eric Fisher, and others signed the ball, Jennings said. On Twitter, Miller said it was the “best present of [his] life.” “I just wanted to do something small to show him how much he’s impacted everyone around him,” Jennings said. Jennings said he knew Miller was a “die hard” Kansas City Chiefs and University of Georgia (UGA) fan. Jennings said he tried to reach out to Hardman, formerly a wide receiver for UGA, but he didn’t get a response. He then contacted Radi Nabulsi of the UGA branch of Rivals, a sports recruiting site. Nabulsi connected Jennings to Hardman, who got the football, had it signed by players, and shipped it out, Jennings said. “I’m glad I could make a day special,” Hardman said on Twitter when he retweeted the video.

Workers at the Canberra animal-rescue nonprofit ACT Wildlife Australia found the perfect way to keep one tiny resident happy. A baby wombat named Duggie, who, according to the organization’s YouTube channel was brought in by a “kind lady” who discovered him in his dead mum’s pouch, is finding comfort in a makeshift pacifier. Shot by ACT’s Lindy Butcher on August 14, this footage shows the animal suckling on a bottle nipple. Butcher told Storyful, “This orphan wombat joey is one of 13 in care with ACT Wildlife at the moment. He will be in care for about 18 months before being released back into the Australian bush as an independent wild wombat.” Text accompanying the footage on the ACT Wildlife YouTube channel says that prior to using the pacifier, Duggie had been unhappy “for a couple of hours,” with his bad mood possibly due to “the change from his mother’s milk to formula.” Credit: Lindy Butcher via Storyful

A family in the Austin area finally solved the mystery of who was stealing their dog’s toys: a pair of foxes. Grahm Donovan and Laura House posted CCTV footage to Facebook of two cunning foxes pilfering squeaky toys from their back porch shortly after 2.15 am on Wednesday, August 7. The surveillance footage shows the foxes climbing onto the couple’s Georgetown, Texas, back porch one at a time and swiftly making off with a toy apiece. Speaking to local media, House said one of the toys is the favorite of their dog, Pi. On Facebook, House posted a photo of a rubber dolphin, asking for local users to keep an eye out for it. “That probably seems ridiculous,” she wrote, “but our dog is blind and mostly deaf and he keeps active by playing with” the toy, which was discontinued by the manufacturer, she said.
