下午1時半，數千市民於上水第一公園聚集，下午1:50集會開始，高呼「趕走水貨 ，唯一出路」，「政府不作為，居民自己嚟」。下午2:30遊行開始，有人高舉寫上「追究警暴 獨立調查」的雨傘，沿途高呼「五大訴求 缺一不可」，無懼數百防暴警察沿路布防。
The problem of parallel traders in the North District could not be solved. As Chinese New Year is approaching, and the area around Shek Wu Hui Market in Sheung Shui is again full of parallel traders from Mainland shopping for milk powder and other supplies. Democratic Party members from the North District and netizens co-organized a “Walk with You” rally and march in Sheung Shui today, hoping to raise the awareness of residents to community issues and the government to pay attention to the problems of parallel traders.
The rally met at 1:30 pm at Sheung Shui No. 1 Garden and the march started at 2.30 pm ending at Exit A3 of Sheung Shui Station. Letter of no objection have been issued for both the rally and the march.
At 1:30 pm, thousands gathered at Sheung Shui No. 1 Park. At the beginning of the rally, they shouted “Drive away parallel imports, the only way out”, “the government does nothing, the residents act upon themselves.”. At 2:30 pm, the march started. Someone held up an umbrella that read “Go after Police Brutality, Independent Inquiry”. The crowd chanted “5 Demands, Not One Less”, undaunted by the hundreds of riot police deployed along the way.
