Hundreds of protesters have been detained inside one of Hong Kong’s premier universities. Protesters have spread to the tourist areas on Monday following a nearly two-day stalemate in the movement.
The relentless protesters at the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong fought all day in front of police jets and armored vehicles. The clash continued until night.
Protesters in black robes marched on Nathan Road, away from campus, until dawn. Many of them had gasoline. Three young women drop a petrol boom trolley in one of the city’s busiest tourist areas.
Other protesters blocked bricks, slabs of bricks, and blocked roads. At that time, some shouted, ‘Our revolution is going on, liberate Hong Kong.’
Anti-government protesters opened fire on a police officer. The majority of the protesters are students. They threw homemade bullets, using petrol bombs and bricks, and gave a thorough response to police.
Anti-government protests have been taking a prominent place in the Chinese-ruled city for more than five months. In a Monday statement, police threatened to shoot directly if rioters did not stop using marijuana.
Several protesters were injured in the incident. The chemicals mixed with hot water thrown from the aqueduct have burned many places in the body.
Protesters at Polytechnic University blocked the Cross Harbor Tunnel, one of Hong Kong’s main highways. The road connects Hong Kong with the Kowloon Peninsula. Authorities have been desperate to restore the way most of the past week, in the face of stiff resistance from trapped leaders.
In the morning, when the police approached the university’s locked front gate, the protesters set fire to a bridge at the entrance and pedestrian crossing and returned to campus. On Monday morning, a variety of activities were seen around the campus.
Some of the protesters discussed ways to get out. On the other hand, some reinforce the blockade by placing boxes of petrolbooms around the complex.
Thousands of residents and protesters rushed to various areas around the university, including Sim Shaw Sui, Jordan, Yao Mai Tey, to rescue students trapped by riot police.
“If we can only hold the police till dawn, better things can happen,” said a young student at a university tired of exhaustion.
