Thousands of Hong Kong senior citizens, including a popular actress, marched Wednesday in a show of support for youths at the forefront of monthlong protests against a contentious extradition bill in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.

The seniors also slammed the police for their handling of a protest Sunday in Hong Kong’s Sha Tin district. That protest was mostly peaceful but ended in mayhem when violent scuffles in a shopping mall saw dozens injured, including a policeman who had a finger bitten off, and over 40 people detained.

Veteran actress and singer Deanie Ip joined Wednesday’s demonstration, and said police shouldn’t use heavy-handed tactics against young protesters, who “have no guns” and were peacefully expressing their frustrations.

Ip and several others held a banner reading “Support youth to protect Hong Kong” as they marched through a financial district.
