Violent clashes as Hong Kong marks China handover anniversary
IN SUMMARY
  • The rallies over the last three weeks are the latest expression of growing fears that China is stamping down on the city's freedoms and culture.
  • But the increasingly hard-line tactics from some protesters have alienated some, with a large counter-rally in support of the police taking place on Sunday.
HONG KONG,

Anti-government protesters laid siege to Hong Kong's parliament on Monday as the territory marked its China handover anniversary, smashing windows, battling police armed with pepper spray and plunging the city further into crisis.
The angry scenes ramped up tensions in the financial hub which has been rocked by three weeks of historic demonstrations against a hugely unpopular bill that would allow extraditions to the Chinese mainland.
Tens of thousands of democracy activists staged another large, peaceful march through the city on Monday afternoon, calling for the city's pro-Beijing leader to step down and reverse what they see as years of sliding freedoms.

But that rally was overshadowed by small groups of mainly young, masked protesters who seized roads and tried to break into the legislature, sparking renewed clashes with police after two weeks of relative calm.
Under blazing summer skies the young demonstrators made multiple attempts to smash into the building, using a metal cart as a battering ram and wielding steel poles to prize open gaps in the reinforced windows.

FREEDOM
Riot police inside the building wore gas masks as they squirted pepper spray at protesters, who unfurled umbrellas to shield themselves.
The anti-government demonstrators eventually managed to prise open a hole in the reinforced glass at the main entrance.
But police retreated behind heavy metal shutters that locked down the rest of the building.

"We know that this is breaking the law, but we have no choice," a 24-year-old protester surnamed Cheung told AFP .

The huge rallies over the last three weeks are the latest expression of growing fears that China is stamping down on the city's freedoms and culture with the help of the finance hub's pro-Beijing leaders.
But the increasingly hard-line tactics from some protesters have alienated some, with a large counter-rally in support of the police taking place on Sunday.

'TWO SYSTEMS'
Although Hong Kong returned from British to Chinese rule on July 1, 1997, it is still administered separately under an arrangement known as "one country, two systems".
The city enjoys rights and liberties unseen on the autocratic mainland, but many residents fear Beijing is already reneging on that deal.
Activists have organised a march every handover anniversary, calling for greater democratic freedoms — such as the right to elect the city's leader.
They have mustered large crowds in recent years — including a two-month occupation of parts of the city centre in 2014 — but have failed to win any concessions from Beijing.

"When I heard that there are clashes outside (parliament), I was very worried," Amy Siu, a 37-year-old accountant taking part in the rally, told AFP .
"I'm worried about the youngsters' safety. I hope they can be rational."
"I would not blame the young people, I blame the government," added an 80-year-old protester who gave his surname Yeung.

EXTRADITION LAW
This year's rally is framed by unprecedented anti-government protests of the past three weeks that have drawn millions, with the public angry over police use of tear gas and rubber bullets.
The spark for the current wave of protests was an attempt by chief executive Carrie Lam to pass the Beijing-backed extradition law, which she has now postponed following the public backlash.

But she has resisted calls to permanently shelve the law or step down.
As a result the demonstrations have morphed into a wider movement against her administration and Beijing.
Lam — who has kept out of the public eye since her climb-down and has record low approval ratings — attended a flag-raising ceremony early Monday, marking the moment the city returned to Chinese ownership 22 years ago.

'RESISTANCE'
But she and other dignitaries watched from indoors due to "inclement weather" — the first time in the ceremony's history.
Her speech stuck to the conciliatory tone she has used in recent weeks.
"What happened in recent months has caused conflicts and disputes between the government and residents," Lam said.
"It has made me fully understand that as a politician, I need to be aware and accurately grasp the feelings of the people."
She then raised a champagne toast alongside cabinet officials and two of her predecessors.
Police said 13 officers were also sent to hospital after being doused by an "unknown liquid" from protesters while the government released a statement condemning protesters for using "extreme violence."
But activists have vowed to keep up their civil disobedience campaign.
"Whatever happens we won't lose heart," Jason Chan, a 22-year-old accountant added.
"Resistance is not a matter of a day or a week, it is long term."

umeskia @maizeroaster ? Resistance is long term!!

Hong Kong protesters occupy legislative chamber after smashing windows, vandalising corridors

Hong Kong anti-government protesters have stormed the city’s legislature after breaking glass doors and prying open gates at the rear.

A group of demonstrators had been ramming doors and windows around the complex since Monday afternoon, despite warnings from police in riot gear that they may face arrest.

Officers appeared to retreat deeper into the building after protesters entered, smashing through a metal shutter.

Protesters inside the legislature spray painted the walls with graffiti, reading “[Chief Executive] Carrie Lam step down,” “the government forced us to revolt” and “Oppose Chinese colonialism,” among other slogans.

An unidentified liquid was thrown onto walls as barricades were carried into the complex by protesters.

Pictures of Legislative Council President Andrew Leung and former president Rita Fan were defaced.

Portraits of Andrew Wong and John Swaine – two presidents who served before the 1997 Handover remained untouched, as did a picture of Jasper Tsang, who was president between 2008 and 2016.

Protesters eventually entered the main chamber of the building where the Hong Kong emblem was spray-painted black.

A protester stood on the president’s desk saying that the government must respond to their demands.

A banner read “there are no rioters, only a tyrannous government,” as one demonstrator destroyed a copy of the Basic Law.

A British colonial flag – often used in protesters – was also unfurled at the president’s chair.

Pro-democracy lawmakers Fernando Cheung, Au Nok-hin and Ray Chan were seen in the main chamber.

They said they would try to calm the situation down. “But there is not much we can do,” Chan said.

Leung Kai-ping, a former editor of the HKU student magazine, urged others to stay and occupy the legislature: “If we don’t stay here, we will be painted as rioters on television tomorrow… Our faces have all been recorded. If we leave, Hong Kong’s civil society will go backwards ten years and we will never be back here.”

Photo: Kris Cheng/HKFP.
In a statement, the government urged protesters to leave the legislature: “This evening, some radical protesters stormed the Legislative Council Complex with extreme violence. These protesters seriously jeopardised the safety of police officers and members of the public. Such violent acts are unacceptable to society. The HKSAR Government strongly condemns such acts, and protesters should stop violent acts immediately.”

Police announced at around 10:21pm that they would soon clear the protesters.

Meanwhile, huge crowds continue to swarm nearby Harcourt Road and Tim Mei Avenue, which remains occupied by thousands of demonstrators. Many, clad in black and white, joined after attending the annual July 1 pro-democracy rally.

The storming of the legislature follows weeks of protest sparked by a controversial extradition bill, which would allow the chief executive and local courts to approve fugitive transfer requests without legislative oversight to jurisdictions where there are no such agreements – most notably, China.

Photo: Kris Cheng/HKFP.
The bill was suspended on June 15, but not axed. The protests have morphed into a wider public display of discontent over alleged police brutality against protesters, among calls for democracy and for Chief Executive Carrie Lam to resign.

The USA want to divide China like Russia!
Even if this is true, which I doubt, China is giving them good reasons. They're not reading the mood. Yaani after protests za nguvu hivi you still talk about suspending a contentious law and not shelving it? Hapa wachinku wanajicheza. If they keep joking these protests will spread to the mainland na watakipata officially.

Extradition law as described on the BBC a few weeks ago.


Hong Kong-China extradition plans explained

Image copyrightAFPImage captionCritics fear the proposed amendments will expose anyone in Hong Kong to China's flawed justice system
Hong Kong is set to push ahead with a highly controversial plan to allow extraditions to mainland China, despite mass protests
The government argues the proposed amendments will "plug the loopholes" so that the city would not be a safe haven for criminals.
But critics say those in the former British colony would be exposed to China's deeply flawed justice system, and it would lead to further erosion of the city's judicial independence.
Hundreds of thousands of people have protested against the bill, which is widely opposed.
Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam has refused to scrap it and is pushing for the amendments to be passed before July.
What are the changes?
The changes will allow for extradition requests from authorities in mainland China, Taiwan and Macau for suspects accused of criminal wrongdoings, such as murder and rape.
The requests will then be decided on a case-by-case basis.
Image copyrightREUTERSImage captionHong Kong is part of China but has its own judicial system
Several commercial offences such as tax evasion have been removed from the list of extraditable offences amid concerns from the business community.
Hong Kong officials have said Hong Kong courts will have the final say whether to grant such extradition requests, and suspects accused of political and religious crimes will not be extradited.
The government has sought to reassure the public with some concessions, including promising to only hand over fugitives for offences carrying maximum sentences of at least seven years.
Image copyrightGETTY IMAGESImage captionHundreds of thousands of people have rallied against the billWhy is this controversial?
There has been a lot of public opposition, and critics say people would be subject to arbitrary detention, unfair trial and torture under China's judicial system.
"The proposed changes to the extradition laws will put anyone in Hong Kong doing work related to the mainland at risk," said Sophie Richardson of Human Rights Watch in a statement. "No one will be safe, including activists, human rights lawyers, journalists, and social workers."
Lam Wing Kee, a Hong Kong bookseller said he was abducted and detained in China in 2015 for selling books critical of Chinese leaders and charged with "operating a bookstore illegally".
"If I don't go, I will be extradited," Mr Lam said during a recent protest against the bill. "I don't trust the government to guarantee my safety, or the safety of any Hong Kong resident."
In late April, Mr Lam fled Hong Kong and moved to Taiwan where he was granted a temporary residency visa.
Image copyrightEPAImage captionScuffles broke out among Hong Kong lawmakers during deliberation of the controversial amendmentWho opposes the proposal in Hong Kong?
Opposition against the law is widespread, with groups from all sections of society - ranging from lawyers to schools to house wives - having voiced their criticism or started petitions against the changes.
Organisers estimate that one million people took part in a march against the bill on Sunday, although police put the figure at 240,000 at its peak.
If the organisers' estimate is confirmed as correct, it would be the largest demonstration in Hong Kong since the territory was handed over to China by the British in 1997.
Earlier this month, 3,000 lawyers, prosecutors, law students and academics marched in silence and called on the government to shelve the proposal.
Hundreds of petitions against the amendments started by university and secondary school alumni, overseas students and church groups have also appeared online.

The petition from St. Francis' Canossian College - Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam's alma mater - has been signed by more than 1,300.
There's even one for housewives, which has collected over 6,000 signatures.
Wong Choi Fung, a mother of one living in working-class Kwun Tong district, told local media that she did this to fight for her son's future.
