Photos and videos documenting Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests have been continuously broadcast from the city since protestors began gathering en masse several days ago.

The videos illustrate the magnitude of the protests, with drone cameras capturing footage of tens of thousands of protesters lining the streets. Protestors have endeavored to be nonviolent according to one group, participating in mass singalongs. A group of musicians was recorded performing a rendition of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from the musical Les Miserables, which has become the de facto anthem for the protests, The Telegraph reports.
