Hong Kong: Say goodbye to the 'pro-democracy' buses

Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong
October 3, 2014 at 16:33 GMT +00:00 · Published

So-called "pro-democracy buses" were driven away from Nathan Road in Hong Kong, Friday. After anti-government protesters had ripped messages off the vehicles, police opened the way for the buses to leave the area. Pro-and anti-government protesters are out in force in the central Mong Kok district, with police on hand to keep the two groups apart. A man fainted in the middle of protests and had to be revived and given water by fellow demonstrators.

Sit-in demonstrations have taken place in Hong Kong in the past, but the current anti-government protests are among the largest the Special Administrative Region of China has experienced in decades.

According to reports up to 80,000 people attended demos on Monday and Tuesday. Pro-government protests have also been held in support of the current policy of the Special Administrative Region.
