Live: Hong Kong Security Law protests as pro-democracy figures due to appear in court.

About 1,000 people have gathered outside a Hong Kong court where 47 pro-democracy candidates, campaigners and activists charged with conspiracy to commit subversion under the national security law are due to appear.

Authorities said the informal poll was part of a plan to “overthrow” the government.
