Hundreds of protesters have organized a sit-in at the Hong Kong airport on Friday to sensitize foreign visitors to their protests, which began two months ago. "We are not agitators, this is a tyranny," the protesters shouted, some of them equipped with their already emblematic masks and hard hats.
This action is expected to be repeated on Saturday and Sunday. Mostly dressed in black, the color of this movement emerged on June 9 following a major protest against a bill of extraditions, protesters sat on the ground in the arrivals area with banners in Chinese and English in which they condemned police violence. "Save Hong Kong from tyranny and police brutality!", You could read in one of them.
Numerous protesters carried posters in which they suggested in different languages: "Ask me questions about Hong Kong!" One of his objectives is to make known his claims beyond that of the town, as one of the concentrates explained, who called himself 'Choi' and who, like many of his colleagues, opposed giving his real name, in the face of fear of being prosecuted by justice.
This Friday marks two months of the beginning of the mobilizations that emerged in opposition to the bill to authorize extraditions to China. The project was suspended, but protesters continue to demand its final withdrawal as well as the resignation of the local executive leader, Carrie Lam.
The megalopolis of southern China has been experiencing its biggest political crisis for two months since it was backed down by London to China in 1997 . Almost daily demonstrations degenerate more and more into clashes between radical groups and the police.
