Hong Kong protesters march with mock coffin of city leader

Scuffles broke out between Hong Kong protesters and police in a town near the boundary with mainland China where thousands rallied against the presence of Chinese traders, seizing on another grievance following major unrest over an extradition bill.

The main target of the rallies has switched from the extradition invoice, which might permit individuals to be despatched to mainland China for trial, to broader points which have roused deep-seated pressure between Hong Kong individuals and mainland Chinese language.

The traders have always been a source of anger among those in Hong Kong who blame them for fueling inflation, driving up property prices and dodging taxes. This could take involve the mainland Communist Party pressuring Hong Kong's regional government to introduce martial law and banning all protesters in the border regions. By about 8:30 p.m. (1230 GMT), most had retreated as police in riot helmets and wielding large shields swept through the town to clear the streets.

The protests have a common refrain: Hong Kong's government, led by a non-democratically elected chief executive, is not addressing the people's concerns.

After issuing a warning, police on Saturday moved forward to disperse the crowd of mostly young protesters who say peaceful demonstrations have failed to bring about change.

Many protestors worry that the government will attempt to pass the extradition bill at a later date.

"There isn't an anti-extradition protest every day to keep us going", she said.

Seeking to rebut Warren's remarks, Esper also said he had never been accused of corruption in his life. Inhofe , 0f Oklahoma, said of Esper's confirmation. "So no, I disagree with you".

"Carrie Lam has lied to us again and again". On Tuesday, she declared the legislation "dead", but protesters want her government to formally withdraw it and quit, among other demands.

"We can not find the word dead in any of the laws in Hong Kong or in any legal proceedings in the Legislative Council", said Bonnie Leung, the vice-convener of the Civil Human Rights Front, an organization that worked to mobilize protestors against the extradition bill.

Hundreds of thousands have joined the weeks' long protests that showed no signs of ending amid wider fears that Hong Kong is losing freedoms guaranteed when China took control of the former British colony in 1997.

Beijing denies interfering in Hong Kong affairs, however many residents are involved about what they see as a relentless march towards mainland management.
