Hong Kong protesters mark China's national day with petrol bombs, street battles with police

  • Published: 01 October 2019
  • Hong Kong protesters threw petrol bombs and police fired tear gas in street battles across the city on Tuesday, posing a direct challenge to Chinese President Xi Jinping on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic on October 1st.

    Anti-government protests rocked the entire Chinese-ruled city on China's 70th anniversary, as many areas turned into battlefields while police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowds.

    Protesters have vowed to seize on the holiday to propel their calls for greater democracy onto the international stage, hijacking an occasion Beijing sees as an opportunity to showcase China's economic and military progress.

A peaceful protest doesn't involve hooligans, thugs, and criminals vandalizing properties, assaulting others of opposing views, and assaulting police officers. Failure to report facts and supporting the narrative of unlawful people is just enabling them to commit more crimes. These HK people are criminals, thugs, and hooligans. All the assaults and destruction they've committed in the last 3 months are acts of criminals. Why is Global News biased in your reporting? These low class HK people are using the so-called "freedom & democracy" narrative to freely commit violence, vandalism, and crimes. Please do Canadians a favour and report the truth. The Canadian media (Global News, CTV News, and CBC News owes the Canadian public accountability in your reporting.

And can you believe that there is no one sponsoring them? And last, who benefits the most from HK riot? Tip: trade war.

You can’t even speak shame to your supreme leader without being detained and placed into jail! You are scared of your own government. Thankfully I can say whatever I want about my own government without being placed into jail. I can have my own opinion without being forced by the government! I feel sorry the people in China. So sorry that they are brainwashed.

China will easily lose influence beyond Uyghurs, Tibet and other possible parts of itself if it losses positions in Hong Kong so far. Thus FREEDOM is never served as in restaurant, its always taken with blood and protests. Keeping monitoring the way how it goes, tended to see the final countdown!
