Hong Kong police have banned several protests with sticks



Hong Kong police officers today stashed clashing pro-Chinese and anti-government protesters at multiple locations in the city, detaining several people.

The protests were significantly less violent than in recent weeks when anti-government protesters attacked parliament and the China Liaison Office, a symbol of Chinese rule, smashing subway stations and lighting fires in the streets. Police then responded with tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons.



Only a few hundred people protested on Friday.

“We must continue to go out to tell the government to respond to our five requests, or they will think we are agreeing to the (extradition law) withdrawal,” said Protester Mandy, 26.

Bill withdrawn

Anti-government protests have been sparked by this now-withdrawn bill and concern that Beijing is undermining civil liberties, but many young people are also angry over the excessively high cost of living and unemployment.

The other four demands are no longer to use the word “riots” for protest rallies, the release of all protesters, an independent investigation into police violence and the right of Hong Kong residents to elect their leaders.

The extradition bill would allow people to be extradited to their home country for trial in courts controlled by the Communist Party, despite Hong Kong's own judicial system.
