Major Protests & Disruptions Continue in Hong Kong

HeadlineNov 13, 2019

Major protests in Hong Kong are continuing to escalate for a third straight day today, including clashes between pro-democracy students and police at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Mr. Wu: “We have not succeeded with our five demands since the movement began in June, and more have been added, including reforming the police force. We will not give up until justice is served.”

That was one of the thousands of protesters out on the streets of Hong Kong Tuesday. The Chinese Foreign Ministry says it stands by the Hong Kong police, who are accused of escalating violence against protesters.

Geng Shuang: “The central Chinese government firmly supports the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, police and judiciary authorities taking effective measures to severely punish illegal criminal activities, protect the safety of Hong Kong residents and their property and restore peace and stability in Hong Kong.”
