Hong after violent clashes between Saturday pro-democracy protesters and security personnel Kong police had tear gas shells and used batons. Hong Kong had a tense but peaceful situation for several days. Earlier, thousands of protesters marched in the industrial Kwaun Tong area, which was tried by dozens of anti-riot policemen with a shield and lathi-charged in front of the police station.
Many of the protesters were wearing hats and masks. During the protest, the people in the front line jointly removed the traffic blockers and bamboo-bats. Some protesters threw stones with the help of slingshot, after which the police charged sticks and released tear gas shells. Many protesters have been arrested by the police.
Hong Kong police have come under attack by protesters for taking strict action against the protests that have been going on for months. Anger against the police is increasing due to lathi charge on hardcore protesters, firing rubber bullets and dropping tear gas shells. The police are also accused of beating people who were holding peaceful demonstrations. There have been violent clashes between police and protesters several times in the past one and a half weeks since the airport was called off operations, but tensions escalated after the march was taken out on Saturday. Ryan, a student protester, said, "I think a peaceful demonstration will not solve the problem."
