Hong Kong: Students hold rally against alleged police brutality

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
October 18, 2019 at 17:11 GMT +00:00 · Published

A number of masked high school students joined other students on Friday, to protest against the government ban on masks and to denounce alleged acts of police violence.

Footage shows students seated on the ground at the University of Hong Kong, where a small group synchronised the reading out of statements against police violence.

Since March, Hong Kong has been rocked by demonstrations sparked by a planned, but now-withdrawn extradition bill. The rallies have evolved into a movement with wider grievances against the Hong Kong administration.
