Hong Kong airport sees demonstrators gathering to mark the start of unauthorised rallies

2019/8/10 9:44:37

To raise awareness among international visitors, activists dressed in black sat in the arrivals halls and waved banners.

Honk Kong has been reeling under protests for weeks due to anger over an extradition bill which took the shape of demands for greater freedoms.

Hong Kong has a free press and judicial independence under the ‘one country, two systems’ approach and freedom activists fear is being increasingly eroded.

Hong Kong is a former British colony, a part of China which enjoys more autonomy.

During the protests an independent inquiry into the alleged police brutality has been called seeking the complete withdrawal of the controversial extradition bill along with the resignation of Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam.

Demonstrators were warned by Beijing not to ‘play with fire’ or to ‘underestimate the firm resolve of the central government’.
