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.
All that’s left of the #HK #Uighur solidarity rally after the police invasion. It speaks volumes of the situation in HK that the rally should end like this. In a way, it’s entirely appropriate. Uighurs have no freedom. We’re fighting to keep what little we have. Free #IlhamTohti
Meanwhile, there’s still a 200m-long queue to enter the Pepe the Frog pop-up store on this its 2nd day. At Velo6, 6 On Wo Lane, Central through December 24.
‘In god we trust, in dog they trust’ on General Post Office wall. (For those not from #HK: police are commonly referred to as dogs. ‘They’ here would be the #CCP & HK govt, which refuse to face any of the political issues the protesters raise, relying solely on force.)
A photo of the man arrested for taking down the PRC flag from the flagpole outside City Hall a little before 17.30. It was this incident that lead to police clearing thousands from the peaceful #HK #Uighur solidarity rally. In my book, anyone who ‘desecrates’ a PRC flag is a hero
