VIDEO: Protesters in Hong Kong Sing 'Do You Hear The People Sing?' From LES MISÉRABLES
Protesters in Hong Kong have adopted 'Do You Hear The People Sing?' from Les Miserables as their anthem as they fight for freedom from China's power.
Hong Kong is currently fighting for democracy and free-election, in an ongoing movement opposing China's power over them.
The people have adopted the Broadway tune, a symbol of power and opposition, and gather in thousands to sing it during their protests. Check out some videos below!
