As buses rumbled by and tourists jostled past, a procession of 400 people solemnly walked the streets of Hong Kong on March 30, at times singing hymns, at times silent. At the front of the crowd strode a 75-year-old Baptist pastor with white hair. Chu Yiu-ming, a longtime democracy activist, walked with his head slightly bowed, his face sorrowful, pacing in the shadow of a wooden cross carried by a fellow marcher.
