Hong Kong: Hospital staff protest against police brutality

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
August 13, 2019 at 13:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

Doctors and nurses at Hong Kong's Queen Mary Hospital gathered to protest against police brutality on Tuesday.

Several protesters wore an eye patch on the right eye in solidarity with a woman who was reportedly shot in the same place by police with a beanbag round on Sunday, blinding her permanently.

Protests have been taking place in Hong Kong since the end of March. Demonstrators are calling for the total withdrawal of a suspended bill that would allow the extradition of the city's residents to mainland China for trials. They also want Hong Kong's chief executive Carrie Lam resign and police actions investigated.

SOT, Protester: "It was because of the protest of August 11. The police forces did not allow any politics but they randomly attacked citizens of Hong Kong, and not only the protesters but reporters and first aiders during the protest. So one of the first aiders got shot by the police and [her] right collarbones, her right facial bones has been fractured and [she] permanently lost her vision. That's why we are in here, to tell our government to stop the violence."
