Its the National Day of the People's Republic of China. We followed a young journalist reporting on the frontline of the protest for his social media audience.
Hong Kong anti-government protesters have stormed the city’s legislature after breaking glass doors and prising open gates at the rear.
A group of demonstrators had been ramming doors and windows around the complex since Monday afternoon, despite warnings from police in riot gear that they may face arrest.
Police in riot gear deployed rubber bullets and multiple rounds of tear gas against protesters occupying Connaught Road in Sheung Wan on Sunday.
Protestors gathered around Police Station demanding answers for why the police were absent the night the Yuen Long triads attacked MTR passengers.
Many believed the triads are working with the police to bring harm to the people who attended the day time march in central.
A Saturday night of chaos on the streets of Hong Kong. After earlier clashes in Admiralty, protesters and police fought a running battle through the streets of Wan Chai and into Causeway Bay. A huge fire was set near police headquarters and water cannon trucks advanced steadily down Hennessy Road. Eventually police chased protesters into Victoria park and several arrests were made.
After chief executive Carrie Lam enacted the anti-mask law. Many protesters gathered at different locations to recite the new manifesto for ‘Hong Kong Provisional Government’. It seems like the protesters have plans to topple the existing government of Hong Kong.
The day the ethnic minorities joined Hong Kong’s Protests
Last Wednesday (Oct. 16), democracy activist Jimmy Sham was viciously attacked with hammers, and reports had trickled out that the assailants were South Asian, stoking fears that protesters may target minorities in retaliation.
Luckily, those fears didn’t materialize. Instead, as tens of thousands of protesters marched through the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui on Sunday (Oct. 20), a group of South Asians stood at the front steps of Chungking Mansions, handing out water and egg tarts, belting out a popular protest anthem, and shouting “We are all Hong Kongers.”
