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.

#HongKongProtests
Aftermath at 7am. Fire at @HongKongPolyU main entrance has been largely put out, leaving scatted flames fuelled by protesters who wants to make it as barricade. The next step of #HongKongPolice remains unclear. #HongKongProtesters #HongKongProtest #HongKong
@HongKongPolyU Protestets decided to leave the campus after deliberation, hoping to break through @hkpoliceforce's cordon line. #HongKongProtest #HongKongProtesters
Shortly, @HongKongPolyU Protestets failed to break through police's cordon line as they're literally beseiged. @hkpoliceforce blocked all the ways out and fired rounds after rounds of teargas in return. They're forced to go back to campus but police didn't chase after them.
This is how journalists leave #HongKong #PolyU war zone - we were forced to raised our hands like suspects when we walked to the cordon line. At least 1 riot police officer pointed his gun to my colleague. Some yelled at me beacuse I put my hand in pocket while waiting in line.
