Please help spread the word, we need the world to help us fight this war. Thank you.
Police brutality has increased. They shot tear gas at the protesters, hit someone with a stick, and used pepper spray against them…
I must emphasize that the protesters are not violent. They have no weapons. All they have are rain coats, umbrellas, surgical masks and goggles/ seran…
Police Fire Tear Gas at Protestors
Hong Kong police fired tear gas and pepper spray on pro-democracy demonstrators who defied orders to disperse, as protests spread through the center of the city against China’s plans to control the territory’s elections.
Police held up warning signs saying “Disperse or We Fire,” before lobbing tear gas cannisters in the Admiralty district near the main government offices, sending protesters fleeing. The demonstrations had spilled outside the government plaza, with protesters blocking traffic on Connaught Road, one of the main thoroughfares that feeds Central, the city’s business district.Photographer: Lam Yik Fei/Bloomberg

HONG KONG UPDATE:
THE POLICE HAVE TAKEN OUT THEIR RIFLES AND HAVE THREATENED TO SHOOT THE PROTESTORS ANY MINUTE NOW.
The issues all over the world are all very much a thing, but guys, please also do not keep your eyes off Hong Kong.
Whether or not you support the cause or the protest, it cannot be denied that all protesters are in serious danger only because they wanted to voice what they want to say. And this is coming from one of the world’s safest cities and best police force.
Please keep our city in your hearts.
Hong Kong is not alone. The world is watching.
Thank you for caring.
