Protests in Hong Kong: Police use water cannon against demonstrators



Thousands of young protesters demonstrating on a multi-story road outside the Legislative Council burst into Chit Whites!

As crowds of protesters swelled, the police tried to repel them with water cannons and pepper spray. Some in the crowd unfolded umbrellas for convenience. Others caught traffic signs and threw them to the ground with a crash.

Some protesters in the crowd said in interviews that they have little hope of forcing the government to abandon the extradition bill. But others, like Grace Tsang, were more optimistic.

Ms. Tsang, 25, said she had come hoping to attract international attention to the bill and said she hoped the global condemnation would force the government to give up its bill for second reading in local law. "Hong Kong is a civilized city, but they do not listen to citizens," said Ms. Tsang, who wore sunglasses and a surgical mask to protect herself from the spray. authorities. "It's pretty funny."

"We need all people in the world to support us, because sometimes we are quite hopeless," she added.

Police in the city said some protesters surround the police and private cars in a tunnel and "threatening the lives of those who were surrounded." "We call for those around the vehicles to leave as soon as possible, otherwise we will use the appropriate force."
