#HongKong activist Agnes Chow @chowtingagnes has been released, 26 hours or so after being arrested on suspicion of violating #NationalSecurityLaw. She says passport’s been confiscated, & #HongKongPolice accused her of collusion with foreign forces on social media... 1)
But Chow said police, during the process of taking her statement didn’t specify when the alleged collusion took place, or through what social media. She said she’s been released on $HK200,000 bail, an amount she called “very harsh”. 2)
Unlike Tony Chung, who was earlier arrested over #NationalSecurityLaw allegations & had a saliva sample taken, Chow said she didn’t need to do so, only giving her fingerprints.

She said this is the 4th time she’s been arrested, “& frankly, this time was the scariest” 3)

Teargas fired along Hennessy Road in Causeway Bay, half an hour into an unapproved march.
Earlier, the small squad of riot police were overwhelmed by the huge crowd that have showed up. Scattered objects thrown while they were retreating. Reinforcements have arrived since.
More teargas fired as riot police made a made dash along Hennessy Road. #HongKong people take to the street in this scale for the first time since #coronavirus hit, to protest against its government and the impending national security laws.

#HongKong mass arrest update: The list is getting longer and longer. At least 13 prominent pro-democracy figures were under arrest this morning. Not the first time for quite a number of them. #HongKongProtests

THREAD: To #HKers, I make this appeal:

I love you, I love your city, it was once my home & I will always fight for you & for #HongKong

You are at your best when you hold the moral high ground, when you protest in peace, for that is when you will win the hearts of the world 1/3
I understand the anger,desperation,frustration that might lead a few of you to contemplate violence

You face a #HongKongPolice that perpetrates violence with impunity,indiscriminately,totally disproportionately & with extremity,every day

You have a human urge to fight back 2/3
But nevertheless, bricks & molotov cocktails have already lost the hearts of some.

Bombs would only make your situation worse

So I plead with #HongKong friends who are bravely protesting for freedom & whose struggle is my struggle:

Fight for hearts & minds, NOT bodies & blood

Amid #Coronavirus menace, pro-#CCP lawmakers today hold extra meetings to discuss #HKpolice pay rises, despite majority of #HKers’ opposing the rise. According to the poll, popularity rating of police hit a record low: 40% of population giving zero marks on police performance.
However, just on the same day of the meeting, #hongkongpolice carries new rounds of political persecution by arresting key pro-democracy figures including Lee Cheuk Yan, Yeung Sum and pro-democracy media tycoon Jimmy Lai.
Over the past two months, #hkgov has demonstrated its governance failure. When the civil society is busy ensuring our mask supplies overseas and helping #Hongkongers to stay away from the virus, #HKpolice opts to suppress all opposition to the police pay rise.

ATL🇺🇸 in #HongKong: THREAD 1/n

Today SO MUCH in one short video:

* Melee of press, #police, protesters & tourists
* #HongKongProtester being arrested
* UK tourist watching atop the silver sculpture
* Sound of pepper spray being sprayed (fountain-style)
* Tear gas being shot
#HongKong THREAD 2/n

I'm not here to be at the front lines (this guy👇👇👇 is), but to visit with some #HongKongers & their supporters involved.

Think of it as American Thought Leaders🇺🇸, #HongKong Edition, & why not ATL🇺🇸—it's been said that this resembles, in some ways, 1776.
#HongKongProtests THREAD 3/n

Meet conflict reporter @Michael_Yon (with gas mask & orange vest) & #HongKong videographer Eric Fok @RazvenHK (donning mask).

Ok, before you meet them, meet the rather assertive #HongKongPolice. Big blue sign means "this protest is unauthorized."

At 3:50 a.m. local time, 4 individuals dressed in black and wielding batons entered the print shop and warehouse of the #HongKong edition of @EpochTimes and set a fire.

This is our response. (Thread 👇)…
The telescopic batons carried by the thugs in the video are similar to those used by the #HongKongPolice. Two of the thugs who carried out the attack were dressed in black with masks, like the #HongKongProtesters.

This was apparently done in an effort to confuse…
…the situation, as this tactic fits a pattern we have seen in #HongKong. Police and thugs have pretended to be protesters, journalists, and citizens, and committed violence, including beatings and arson, then blamed the protesters in an attempt to discredit them.

4 masked intruders dressed in black set a fire at the printing press of the #HongKong edition of @EpochTimes in the early hours of Nov. 19, marking the 4th attack to the facility since its opening more than a decade ago. (Thread 👇)…
The incident took place around 3:40AM, as the staff there were about to send off newly printed newspapers to the stands.

Moments after staff opened the factory door, 4 masked men walked into the facility and pointed batons towards the workers, shouting: “all of you don’t move!”
Surveillance footage shows 2 of the men dressed in all black carrying batons, while one of them holds newspapers, and another carries two containers containing a flammable liquid, which he poured onto the factory machines and newspapers.

#NOW #PolyUniversity - @hkpoliceforce urges protesters to surrender or they will arrest them by force including LETHAL FORCE. Police warns protesters "Time is running out" as they have been tolerated by the society for long. #HongKongProstests #HongKong #HongKongPolice
Meanwhile on telegram channel, #PolyU protesters vow to defend the campus until the very end - probably the last university stronghold - because they think it'll be almost impossible to reenter the campus if they retreat, which makes it harder to block cross harbour tunnel again.
#BREAKING #PolyU: @hkpoliceforce's armored trucks approached protesters and burning objects. One of them was then set ablaze by Molotov cocktails thrown by protesters. Literally frightening though it shall be put off very soon after it retreated. #HongKongProtests #HongKong

Audrey Eu SC, on behalf of #CUHK student union chief Jacky So seeking injunction to ban police entry, argues there’s no rioting WITHIN Uni precinct; there’s only evidence that #HongKongPolice entered the campus & students responded to “an invasion of their home & try to defend”
Eu: we’re not asking the court to condone violence & the legal conducts of rioters, nor trying to tie the police’s hands. We’re asking #HongKongPolice have to enforce the law in accordance to the law, no more no less #CUHK #HongKongProtests
Eu: there should only be 3 conditions for police to enter #CUHK, a private premise. 1) with a search warrant, 2) at the invitation of the owner, 3) section 50(4) of the #HongKongPolice Force Ordinance, which reads as below:

#HongKongPolice are stationed on every block along Nathan Road, starting from St.Andrew’s Church. And some look incredibly bored. Someone on my bus commented “what a nice job, stand here, do nothing and you earn OT.”
Riot police advancing from Cultural Centre now clearing protesters from Salisbury Road. “Blame the protesters,” an officer told civilians, who asked why they had to leave.
Unsure where riot police want protesters to go, pushing them from the sidewalk on Salisbury Road has only forced them onto the road. Now police officers are blocking the traffic themselves. Also note that most protesters here are not wearing any gear.

.@Apple removed an app that provides real-time updates about #HongKongPolice and #HongKongProtesters movements from its App Store on Oct. 10, the latest international brand that has caved following pressure from the #Chinese regime 👎…
The dynamic, crowd-sourced app has become popular for helping people to navigate through the tear gas-filled streets in Hong Kong, a former British colony where pro-democracy protests have erupted since June against Beijing’s creeping interference.
The emojis and spontaneous updates proved handy for users to track conditions such as train closures and potential clashes. Apple said in a statement that the app has posed “serious harm” to law enforcement and local residents.

Hong, the founder and journalist of Stand News #Hongkong, illustrated his near death experience on #October1st, allegedly shot by #Hongkongpolice.
In fact, he wasn’t the only journalist got shot during the #Hongkongprotests. Veby Indah got shot by HKPF and sadly lost her eye...
It’s clear that press freedom in HK is now severely violated by the unlawful #PoliceBrutality of #HongKongPolice.
This is no longer an local individual violent incident, but an INTERNATIONAL ISSUE that global citizen should not tolerate!
RT his story if you stand with justice...
This 1st hand story is from @Yu_Hong_Chan facebook:
I’ve respect to Hong and I’ve been watching his live since the first day of #HongKongProtests.(though I can’t listen to Chinese)
It is professionally translated by @kesakesa9, @hkgaddoil and all fds in HK
