另外現場亦有不少人呼籲金融界周一（5日）參與全港大罷工。早前連登討論區有網民發帖，發起今次的中環「快閃」集會。該帖文又指，已收到逾 700 位銀行從業員以職員證表達訴求，表明願意於8月5日加入三罷行動，包括中資銀行職員。
Thousands of financial workers braved pouring rain under Typhoon signal no.1 to gather at Chater Garden in central Hong Kong Thursday, giving that sector’s support to mass protests that have roiled the territory for weeks.
According to organisers around 4,300 from 80 banks, including Chinese banks, participated in the heart of the financial district and more than 700 workers posted photos of their staff cards to declare they would also join a city-wide strike called for next Monday.
Most of the participants in the rally wore suits, lit up their mobile phones, and shouted slogans such as “Recover Hong Kong, the Revolution of the Times” and “Hong Kong People on Strike”. Some people raised the slogan leaflet “No rule of law, funds will go”, “No freedom, talents will go”, warning the impact of recent events on the financial sector. Some are concerned about collusion between police and Triad plus recent indiscriminate arrest and riot charges.
