Hong Kong Protesters, Police Ready for Another Likely Clash

Hong Kong Protesters, Police Ready for Another Likely Clash

Sunday, 28 July 2019 06:06 AM

Protesters and police are preparing for a likely showdown in central Hong Kong, one day after clashes led to 11 arrests and left at least two dozen injured in an outlying district toward the border with mainland China.

A rally has been called for Sunday afternoon at Chater Garden, an urban park in the financial district. Police have denied a request to march about 2 kilometers (1.4 miles) west to Sun Yat-sen Memorial Park, but at least some of the demonstrators may still try to push forward.

Hong Kong has been wracked by protests for seven weeks, as opposition to an extradition bill has morphed into demands for the resignation of the city's leader and a broader push for democracy in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
