    We expected more protesters and we brought the water cannon, so like, we might as well use it.

    TL; DR: HKers fighting against a law amendment that could send anyone back to China.

    Some background information if you're wondering what's going on:

    The HK government is trying to amend the current fugitive law so that they can send criminals to China. Theoretically, political criminals will not be affected and cases will be heard and appealed in HK court before the criminal is sent to China.

    HOWEVER, in reality, the Chinese & HK judicial system are not to be trusted. Most political criminals are framed by the government and were accused of other crimes (those included in the law, mostly business-related crimes). Therefore, if this passes, it will severely affect the freedom of speech and freedom of press in HK. Think all those disappearance of people in China. That could happen in HK too.

    On 9 June, over 1m people joined a demonstration against this, but the gov. proceeded the hearing in LegCo. Hence, HKers decided to up their game. A number of companies and a lot of people from different industries are on a strike. Students are not going to school. Most HKers are showing their discontent in their own way.

    The guy in the pic probably was trying to do some protective measures by creating a triangular pattern using the fences (those were set up by the police).

    I'm also a HKer, AMA. :)

    Why Hong Kong police can be so rude towards unarmed citizens?

    To anybody living outside of Hong Kong, who sympathizes us and agrees with what we are trying to do. You can help, too! Tell your friends and family about this, let more people know about the Extradition Bill and how we are desperately trying to prevent the bill from passing. Knowledge is power!

    This is what justice looks like in Hong Kong - a bunch of heavily armed, professionally trained troops bullying unarmed students and civilians.

    You fucked up HK government, people are pissed.

    Even not passing the Extradition Law yet, the police treat their own citizens like animals.

    The government is not with the people, they only obey to the communist.

    Please share to all of your friends, this really means a lot to us, to the hong kong people who are still fighting with justice and freedom.

    #ACAB All cops are bastards.

    At least true in Hong Kong.

    Those who knowingly and voluntarily submit themselves as part of the totalitarian state apparatus are all terrible complicit in the oppression and DESERVE NO COMPASSION NOR MERCY.

    They're just being helpful, trying to wash off the mace that other officer is spraying.

    honkonger here:
    currently many protestors are protesting outside the legislative council building, and the police are also facing off protestors. the police are seen carrying what seems to be live firearms, and riot gear. the legislative council also announced that the second reading of the extradition laws will be postponed.
