Hong Kong: 'Get out of here!' Local man spits contempt at protesters

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
October 1, 2014 at 10:58 GMT +00:00 · Published

An enraged local man was seen articulating his disdain at protesters on the streets of central Hong Kong, Wednesday. Demonstrators have gathered in the Tsim Sha Tsui shopping area, where major fashion brands are located.

Volunteers have also established first aid centres in preparation for potential protest casualties. Phillip, a volunteer at the centre, said he was more worried about violence from protesters than from police officers.

Wednesday marks China's National Day, the 65th anniversary of the proclamation of the People’s Republic of China.

Riot police were removed from the streets Monday, with authorities in Hong Kong stating that they are not needed as long as demonstrators keep protests within the boundaries of the law. The chief executive of Hong Kong, Leung Chun-ying, has also promised that firearms and rubber bullets would not be used by security forces and that the People's Liberation Army would not be called in.
