Violent police crackdown, the people will not forget
The Hong Kong “anti-riot" police used tear gas, rubber bullets and bag bombs to deal with the citizens who requested the withdrawal of the fugitive offenders Ordinance.
The Government had earlier requested the Legislative Council to start a second reading debate on the revised draft at 11:00 today. The dissatisfied people launched today’s “three strikes" (workers,shopkeeper, students) and called on the public to surround the Legislative Council. As a result of the opposition, it was not enough to force the footpath around Admiralty Station at eight o’clock and was forced to cross the road.
Since then, more and more citizens have been supported. Tim Wah Road, Lung Wo Road, Tim Mei Road and Harcourt Road are full of protesters. They have surrounded the Legislative Council. As a result, some members of the formed system have failed to return to the legislation before 11 am. In the building, Chairman Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen initially delayed the meeting for only two hours and finally announced that the meeting would be cancelled.
However, the protesters also knew that the suspension of the meeting at one and three moments did not mean anything. Some members of the public asked the CE Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor to respond to the appeal before 3 pm. During the period, Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, Chief Secretary for Administration once delivered a televised speech, emphasizing that the amendments were only for repeat offenses; Carrie Lam accepted TVB interviews, with a mother who cared for children, and marched in a million people. Tens of thousands of young people who go to the streets against the fugitives regulations are insisting on amendments. They do not want to condone the “willful" children.
The protesting citizens escalated their actions after three in the afternoon and attempted to enter the Legislative Council to prevent the meeting. However, the police have already deployed a large number of police forces in the Legislative Council and government headquarters. Even if the citizens once successfully entered the Legislative Council demonstration area, they were eventually driven away by the superior police force.
During the crackdown, in addition to the use of batons, the application of pepper spray, and the use of guns to fire tear gas, rubber bullets and bag bombs, the Commissioner of Police Lo Wai-chung also confirmed that the weapons were used. A number of media and online clips were visible. Many members of the public were seriously injured and some members of the public were shot in the front. The tear gas bombs also fell into the crowd many times, and the citizens rushed to avoid, and many people inhale the tear gas.
Among them, a 17-year-old girl had tears in her heart and cramped her hands and feet. The volunteers at the scene were sent to the Queen Mary Hospital for emergency treatment. An outsourced driver of RTHK also shot in the head and suffered serious eye injuries. An eye surgeon doctor was widely spread around the message. He hoped to find out the injured family or colleagues to discuss the injury and deal with it as soon as possible. Otherwise, there would be a chance to be permanently blind. Dr. Kwok Ka-ki, a member of the Legislative Council who is a doctor, also had first aid at the scene for serious injuries. He said that he was suspected of being hit by a stray bullet.
The “anti-riot" police dispersed the crowd in the direction of Wan Chai and Central in the afternoon and cleared the roadblocks set up by the public. However, many Hong Kong residents continue to take to the streets. Later, in Central, Wan Chai and Causeway Bay, members of the public gathered to continue to call the “withdrawal" slogan even though the Government characterized the campaign as “riot".
How the future road is unknown, but the people will not forget the actions of the Hong Kong government and the police on June 12, 2019.
