Protesters in Hong Kong have marched through the streets, occupied the airport, and stormed a government building in recent weeks, but they adopted a new tactic Friday. The pro-democracy demonstrators formed a human chain through the city’s streets and along the waterfront in a plea for freedom and international support similar to a protest in the Baltic states 30 years ago Friday. Nearly 2 million Latvians, Lithuanians, and Estonians formed a human chain more than 370 miles long on Aug. 23, 1989, to protest Soviet rule.
