Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam warns US other foreign countries to not interfere in protests

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam warns US other foreign countries to not interfere in protests

The Association of Thai Travel Agents has estimated travel packages to Hong Kong will drop by more than 30% this year due to the rallies in the country and the sagging economy in Thailand.

Clashes between police and activists have become increasingly violent, with police using tear gas and protesters storming parliament. Then there were "Long Live Hong Kong" and "We are Hong Kong" chants as well.

The city's leader, Carrie Lam, announced concessions this week to try to end the protests, including formally scrapping the bill, but Wong said protesters would not be lulled into complacency.

An escalation of violence can not solve social issues in Hong Kong, the leader of the Chinese-ruled city, Carrie Lam, said on Tuesday, adding that she deeply regretted interference by foreign parliaments in the Asian financial hub's matters. In his first public comments, Li called youths the "masters of our future" and said the government should temper justice with mercy in resolving the crisis.

Mrs Lam, Hong Kong's chief executive, responded to those calls at a news conference on Tuesday.

"We hope we can unite Hong Kong", said one of those booing, Ah Wing, wearing a red Hong Kong team shirt and glasses. Many of them also began chanting "Glory to Hong Kong", a de facto anthem in Hong Kong, according to South China Morning Post.

But she stressed the government can not condone violence and will strictly enforce the law.

Protesters took to the streets once more on Sunday, marching to the American consulate to name on Congress to cross a invoice expressing help for the pro-democracy motion.

Over the course of the study there were 155 fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular disease events. Researcher Hausler couldn't say exactly why a couple of naps each week might do a body good.

The initially peaceful protests have degenerated into encounters between baton-wielding riot police and activists, leading to scores of injuries and about 1,300 arrests.

Demonstrators crowd every overpass, even on the rooftops, as they attend a pro-democracy rally near the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong.

"The insane destruction made at MTR stations shows that protesters have acted beyond expressing their views on the extradition law and other demands", she stated, utilizing the title of the agency that runs the town's underground rail service.

"We can't help but ask, what is the goal of the German side in allowing Joshua Wong to come to Germany at this time and to meet with minister Maas?" The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other prominent USA lawmakers, calls for annual assessments on whether the former British colony is sufficiently autonomous from Beijing to continue its special trading status.

Wong also likened the ongoing protests to the role of Berlin during the Cold War, expanding on remarks he gave on Monday night during an event where he met German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

In an immediate response, Wong tweeted that China's strong reaction was "baffling".

Hundreds of uniformed school students, many in masks, formed human chains across Hong Kong yesterday in support of pro-democracy protesters after another weekend of clashes in the city. His prosecution came after his release from prison in June following a two-month sentence related to the 2014 protests.

Interference by foreign parliaments in Hong Kong's affairs is deeply regrettable, the leader of the Chinese-ruled city said on Tuesday, adding that an escalation of violence can not solve social issues in the Asian financial hub.
