    Hong Kong once again faced chaos and destruction on Sunday as thousands of protesters marched against the city's new anti-mask law. Many demonstrators blamed the government for escalating the situation with the new measure implemented through emergency powers.

                  das ist kein Protest mehr sondern reiner Vandalismus. Kein Ziel rechtfertigt solch eine Zerstörung und ich kann die Polizei und ihre Gangart verstehen. Und das sage ich als Antikommunist und Gegner der chinesischen Regierung!

                      Do you understand what you are saying? War is not what hong kong citizens want but they fight for their freedom against corruption. If USA gave them military supplies it would make this a full blown war and with china having a bigger army, gun to gun HK would have no chance. This would also incourage a war with a country (china) with nuclear weapons.

                      I like how the police banners say “Tear Smoke” instead of Tear Gas

                        Well that makes sense because it looks like smoke instead of gas. Gas is supposed to be green I think.

                                      I think if the goverment is using the faces to find the protesters they have a right to protect there identity agaist a tyrantical goverment. Antifi on the other had uses there masks to get away with crimmes agaist others and violence, thats the wrong way to use masks.
