Hong Kong Protests Intensify

Dyed water blasted at demonstrators. Hundreds trapped inside a university. Fire and arrows. This is the situation in Hong Kong.

The protestors are also demanding an independent investigation

Protesters in Hong Kong have been using petrol bombs, bows & arrows, catapult blue dye to defend themselves against the tear gas and water cannons administered by the police. The clashes between police and protesters have intensified. Hundreds of demonstrators are trapped inside a university, besieged by the authorities and fearing a bloody crackdown. Those trying to escape have been tear gassed and arrested. The protestors want to show the whole world if the police forces collude with the triads, that means there will be no security, safety, for Hong Kong. The protestors are also demanding an independent investigation. They accuse the police of using excessive force and allowing Chinese triads to attack them.

In April, the Chinese government proposed an extradition bill that threatened Hong Kong's legal autonomy from the mainland. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets, launching months of massive protests. There was a violent police crackdown. Today, just leaving Hong Kong is risky. Despite the danger, Beatrice and Andy said Hong Kongers were committed to fighting on. Hong Kong's government promised to withdraw the extradition bill, but many Hong Kongers remain skeptical. They say that anyone who cares about democracy should pay attention to what is happening in Hong Kong.

On November 18, some activists set fires to keep police out. Major roads were blocked, and a riot police vehicle was torched. Demonstrators hurled petrol bombs and bows and arrows to prevent police from entering the campus. Police have sent a warning to protesters. A few protesters managed to flee the siege by shimmying down a rope. Universities have become protest hot spots since the death of a student on November 8. The escalation comes amid months of protests against Beijing's encroachment on Hong Kong's autonomy and heavy use of force by police.

    I would just declare the cops should use deadly force and kill them all cause they are throwing Molotov cocktails which can kill people that's just like shooting someone or shooting at someone....... shoot to kill solve the issue

    Revelation 3:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV) The Dead Church 3 “And to the [a]angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before [b]God. 3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. 4 [c]You have a few names [d]even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

    But you don't hear or see or government representatives trying to help them. Instead our government brings in ms13 middle easterners who could be terrorists and pay their way. Putting them in government offices ect. Is anyone seeing the problem.
