Hong Kong protester shot by police as chaos erupts across city - media

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong police opened fire and hit at least one protester on Monday, media reported, as chaos erupted across the city a day after officers fired tear gas to break up demonstrations that are now entering their sixth month.

 

Police fired live rounds at protesters on the eastern side of Hong Kong island, Cable TV and other Hong Kong media reported. Cable TV said one protester was wounded after police opened fire.

 

Video footage showed a protester lying in a pool of blood with his eyes wide open.

 

Police declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.

 

Services on some train and subway lines were disrupted early on Monday, with riot police deployed near stations and shopping malls. Protesters used barricades to block roads across the Chinese-ruled financial hub, with long traffic jams in some areas.

 

Activists blocked roads and trashed shopping malls across Hong Kong's New Territories and Kowloon peninsula on Sunday during a 24th straight weekend of anti-government unrest.

 

The latest violence comes after a student died in hospital last week following a high fall as protesters were being dispersed by police.

 

Protesters are angry about what they see as police brutality and meddling by Beijing in the former British colony's freedoms, guaranteed by the "one country, two systems" formula put in place when the territory returned to Chinese rule in 1997.

Quoting Coremouse:
"It's believed the man was"
"It is widely known separists have"

Yeah, sure, if you 
believe the fake news made in China.

There seems to be very little constructive in the  chaos ongoing in Hong Kong.

There is also little  evidence that the  supposed "cause" of the  riots have anything  much to  do  with  claimed objectives.

You cant have it both ways mate. Either the Chinese report or they dont. None of this news is reported in China and the international press are in full attendance.

Except "It's believed the man was" by various HK media, and Chinese media very slow to follow on.

 

And might I add quite balls to say fake news while it's fully recorded in video, every protester face's clear as day. 

 

Blame on China because they have a communist party, so everything must be fake news and automatically at fault lol. Man cold war ended long ago, life in China not much different than other parts the world, try get a life over blindly sanction on ideology.

Since it's a similar subject mind I quote my previous post.

If you don't like Chinese news, you could also check this wonderful report by a HK-loving Japanese scholar: 

https://gendai.ismedia.jp/articles/-/66271  Funny he was attacked because some terrorists mistake him a Chinese. Recently some Taiwanese sympathizer was also attacked at HK simply because they spoke mandarin.

Here's HK "democracy" terrorists burning down market streets and bookstore, this particular bookstore belong to a publisher has long standing heritage, well known for translating many masterpieces to Chinese reader, like Betrand Russel, Hegel, Spinoza

Here's a video gone total viral within Chinese netizens. As I was informed a man driving his family home and encountered HK "democracy" protests' blockade. Since he doubted the blockade & tried to talk his way through, those democracy dudes deemed him the Enemy of Color Revolution - they surrounded the van, dragged the guy out of the car, abused him, bullied him, chained him. He silently taken all the bullets and protected his family from hurt, when he finally got those demo-dudes distracted, he imediately get back in the car, locked door, totally rammed and destroyed the blockade and away with his family. 

 

I first seen the vids in a facebook motor group, every Chinese no matter from Mainland, Taiwan, Asean or Western all cheered for him.

If you could read Japanese, I think this report written by scholar Aoyama is very good and minimal bias. He criticized Beijing during 1989 event, yet he felt so sad and unsettling about current HK ongoing. 

 

Most Chinese agree the HK event is rooted deep within the appalling Gini index HK currently have, which was driven by the city's own greed and divided people. Also though not many but some HKer could be very racist as the Japanese scholar pointed out.

 

Not trying to argue on the internet but just want you to know, other than mainstream western media there're vast diffferent voices in China, and that has NOTHING to do with Chinese gov. Myself have quite some grudges against Chinese gov yet I condemn meaningless violence, and also think it's unfair for Chinese as a whole bear many negative stereotype.

I almost flew Cathay Pacific airlines back in July and August when I went from Los Angeles to BKK  because I wanted to try their Premium Economy class as compared to EVA which I usually fly.  Luckily I stayed with EVA since the Cathay airport was in turmoil, EVA connects from LAX to Taipei.   It was a close call because EVA was just getting over an airline worker strike.
