About 90,000 people turned up at a public rally at Victoria Park in Hong Kong Saturday afternoon to show their support and gratitude to the city's police force.

The peaceful and full-of-positive-vibe rally, the third one since mid-June, was the silent majority's answer to the city's radicalism and violence mounted by protesters who have repeatedly thrown the city into chaos. Two earlier rallies saw about 480,000 people voicing their shared aspiration of bringing back peace and harmony to this stressed out city.

The damp and soggy lawns in Victoria Park were packed with participants, who held signboards and banners with messages such as "We support the police" and "Give peace a chance".
