However, Albert Ho Chun-yan (何俊仁) ,member of the Legislative Council, seems feel upset after Anson Chan arrived. Is it because all the reporters only feel interest on Anson Chan?

Anson Chan said: "Today I come to take part in march in support of democracy, but this doesn't mean we are trying to challenge the government. Although the econonmy has been good it doesn't mean we don't need democracy."
