Hong Kong: Opposition mark six months since police clashes

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
December 12, 2019 at 18:31 GMT +00:00 · Published

The opposition marked six months since the movement had its first significant clash with the police with a rally in the central Edinburgh Place in Hong Kong on Thursday.

The protesters exhibited numerous banners and placards denouncing the government and calling for 'Free Hong Kong', along with flags of the United States and the United Kingdom.

On June 12, police fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse a crowd occupying the area surrounding the legislative council as it was giving a second reading of the so-called extradition bill.

Hong Kong has been rocked by protests sparked by that now-withdrawn extradition bill. The rallies have since evolved into a wider movement against the government, marked by violent clashes between protesters and police.
