Hong Kong Police, Protesters Clash On Handover Anniversary

Police in Hong Kong have clashed with protesters marking the anniversary of its handover from UK to Chinese Rule.

In chaotic scenes on Monday, Police used pepper spray and batons to contain protesters outside a venue hosting an annual flag-raising ceremony.

A small group of protesters also smashed into the Government building.

This is the latest in a series of protests against a controversial bill that would allow extraditions to mainland China.

The Government has agreed to suspend it indefinitely, but the rallies continue and Chief Executive Carrie Lam is facing ongoing calls to resign.

Authorities said demonstrators began blocking several roads near the venue early on Monday morning, using items like metal and plastic barriers to block the way.

Speaking at the Flag Ceremony in the morning, Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam said she would spend more time listening to the public.
