Hong Kong protests: Dozens arrested as police curtail demonstrations on China's National Day

Hong Kong riot police patrolling the route of a banned anti-government march arrested dozens of people on Thursday, stopping crowds from gathering as Chief Executive Carrie Lam hailed the city’s “return to stability” at China’s national day celebrations.

Police were seen rounding up more than 50 people downtown and binding their wrists before putting them on buses.

Protesters had wanted to march against Beijing’s imposition of a sweeping national security law on June 30 and demand the return of 12 Hong Kong people who were arrested at sea by Chinese authorities in August as they tried to reach self-ruled Taiwan.

Police had banned the protest, citing coronavirus-related restrictions on group gatherings and violence that had taken place at previous marches.

Anti-government protests, which often turned violent in 2019, have been smaller and fewer this year due to coronavirus restrictions on group gatherings and fears of arrest under the new security law.

    And the global communist lovers and state media ghouls support the wicked Communist Chinese dictatorship, of course the most admired despot country in the world, and of course their boss, Trudeaus’ basic favourite!

    I don’t think most of westerners will know who is planning and leading these protests. It’s CIA and the US Congress.

    Did you ever notice 90% of these protestors are students. Their minds are easy. Easy to be washed, easy to be controlled. Easy to be fooled. If I were the CIA I ll pick the same group.

    Seems like the Chinese people in Taiwan run their civilization much better than the CCP run their civilization over there on the mainland.. logic says that the Chinese civilization including Mainland China would be better off if Taiwanese officials were enlisted to run the Chinese mainland.
