Police suddenly rushed into crowd, apprehended at least 2, beat 1 badly w batons, peppersprayed wildly (I got it badly in the eye), raised black flag warning of teargas & called off #HK #Uighur solidarity rally. Angry crowd has scattered. So typical.
More photos of sudden police attack on #HK #Uighur solidarity rally. When police retreated w arrestees, they were pelted w bottles, then rushed forward, threatening teargas & calling off rally. Grossly irresponsible. Pardon if photos suck-can hardly see due to pepper spray in eye
Police swooped when a PRC flag was pulled down from the flagpole outside City Hall (next to Edinburgh Place). You can see the flag under one of the people police apprehended in the photo above.

Edinburgh Place is full for the #HK rally in solidarity w #Uighurs . In our nearly 800 protests since 6/9, this is only the 3rd to stand for others. There was a small 1 at CUHK for Uighur uni pres rumored sentenced to death & 1 for Catalunya.
Great to see the #EastTurkestan & #Tibet flags flying at the #HK solidarity rally for #Uighurs. Our fate is tied to theirs. We all have to fight together for our freedom & our rights.
Free #IlhamTohti , Free All Political Prisoners at #HK rally for #Uighurs . Ilham just received EU parliament’s #SakharovPrize this week. He’s serving life in prison in China on the entirely false charge of ‘separatism’. His daughter @JewherIlham accepted the award on his behalf.
