Hong Kong is expected to see a large number of people coming out to say no to violence and pull the city back from "the brink of a dangerous situation" that many have warned of on Saturday.

The rally will be held from 5 to 6:30pm at Tamar Park on Hong Kong Island.

Hong Kong has seen protesters block roads, light fires, siege government buildings and police stations more than 70 times in 18 days since June 9. Protests have also  affected the normal operation of Hong Kong International Airport, one of the world's busiest traffic hubs.

Hong Kong police announced on Friday that they had rejected protest march permissions at three locations over the weekend-To Kwa Wan, Hung Hom and Hong Kong Island-on security grounds. A public gathering at Victoria Park was approved.
