Amnesty International: Police must end excessive force against largely peaceful protest in Hong Kong
 
I am surprised it has taken this long for it all to kick off - time to roll in the tanks
 
Hong Kong police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators who threw plastic bottles on Wednesday as protests against an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial descended into violent chaos.

Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered peacefully outside the Chinese-ruled city’s legislature before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas.

Police warned them back, saying: “We will use force.”

Ambulances sped toward the protest area as panic spread through the crowd, with many people trying to flee the stinging tear gas, according to a Reuters witness. More than 10 people were wounded in the clashes, Cable TV reported.

Police used pepper spray, tear gas and batons to force the crowds back. Some shops put up their shutters at the nearby IFC, one of Hong Kong’s tallest buildings.

Civil Human Rights Front, which organised a protest on Sunday that it estimated saw more than a million people take to the streets in protest against the extradition bill, accused police of using unnecessary violence.

The protesters, most of them young people dressed in black, had erected barricades as they prepared to hunker down for an extended occupation of the area, in scenes reminiscent of pro-democracy “Occupy” protests that gridlocked the former British colony in 2014.

The violence had died down by early evening under light rain, but tens of thousands still jammed the streets in and around Lung Wo Road, a main east-west artery near the offices of embattled Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam.

“Didn’t we say at the end of the Umbrella movement we would be back?” pro-democracy lawmaker Claudia Mo said, referring to the name often used for the 2014 demonstrations, whose trademark was the yellow umbrella.

“Now we are back!” she said as supporters echoed her words.

Others once again called for Lam to step down.

More than 30,000 people on Saturday took part in a protest in Hong Kong's area of Sheung Shui against the practice of parallel trading with mainland China, citing rising housing prices and hygiene issues, local media reported.

The protesters have demanded that Hong Kong authorities stop to ignore negative effects that parallel trading has on the economy of Sheung Shui, an area close to the border with mainland China, the RTHK broadcaster has reported.

The Hong Kong police said a series of clashes had occurred during the protest, calling on the demonstrators to end violence and disperse.

They sure are trying China’s patience
 
Came across some vids today of pro CCP groups beating the living hell out of everyone inside a metro station, not distinguishing between men/women Young/Elderly.
Really pissed off seeing this gangs beating people trapped inside a metro wagon.:mad:
Oh, and police was nowhere to be seen…… Jeeez……. China, you can do better. Everybody knows how security goes down there, so its kinda given that this mobs had government approval.
This assaults and the recorded vids showing the aggresions will make HK people blood boil.
 
The extradition bill is merely the tip of the iceberg. The people of HK have a history of personal liberties which hasn't been expunged yet. Does China come in and violently put this down as they would on the mainland? Too many people watching. But I'd guess they would if they could. It will be interesting to see what develops.
