Hong Kong protesters held a memorial service for “martyrs” on Saturday and many demanded “revenge” for a student who died in hospital last week after falling from a high place, sparking anger among pro-democracy protesters who began protests in June.

Thousands gathered in Tamar Park, adjacent to the central government offices in the city, which returned to Chinese rule in 1997 after obtaining police permission to hold an evening march.

The protesters chanted songs, carried flowers and many chanted “revenge”, a call that echoed during the rallies and gave more impetus to the protests after a student died in hospital on Friday after falling from a multistory car park during the protests.

Cho Tsz-Loc, 22, a student at the University of Science and Technology in Hong Kong, fell on Monday as police tried to disperse the protesters in Hong Kong.

The rallies often turn into clashes between police and protesters, sparking the city’s worst political crisis in decades, although a memorial service for students, older people and few children has been quiet.

The protesters called a general strike on Monday and demanded residents disrupt public transport, although the calls have never been met.

But the student’s death is likely to inflame anger at police, whom protesters accuse of using excessive force.
