Police, pro-democracy activists clash in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is facing its grimmest crisis since it was returned to the Chinese Communist regime’s control in 1997. The former British colony endures three consecutive days of mass protests, culminating in chaos amidst fierce face-offs with riot police after Sunday’s rally.
Tens of thousands of pro-democracy activists, dressed in black, wearing hardhats, and armed with umbrellas gathered Sunday in a park in central Hong Kong for another scheduled rally.
The activists are calling for an independent investigation into police brutality and alleged collusion with gangsters in last weekend’s attacks on Hong Kong commuters.
