Chants of "Liberate Hong Kong" had earlier echoed through the streets as more than 1,000 protesters wearing black marched amid a tense atmosphere.

That became a cat-and-mouse chase with demonstrators late into the summer night.

They dispersed, as noxious smoke also filled the train station there, bringing train passengers to tears.

Several leisure and public facilities had planned to close during the afternoon (local time) when the protests were expected.

On Saturday, police fired volleys of teargas to disperse protesters after activists rallied across the city.

Jason Liu, a 29-year-old protester who works as an arborist making sure the city's trees are healthy, said the police made him the most angry as they acted like enemies rather than protecting the people.

The Hong Kong-based, pro-Beijing Ta Kung Pao reported that the political unit chief of the US Consulate General in Hong Kong, Julie Eadeh, had met with members of the political party Demosisto - including prominent democracy activist Joshua Wong. Its Hong Kong affairs department has spoken to the media twice in recent weeks to warn protesters that their actions will not be tolerated. "We'll continue to fight...but we're also going to be smart and wear them down".

Huarong International, the investment arm in Hong Kong of China Huarong Asset Management Co, has instructed staff not to fly Cathay Pacific if there are other options, according to an internal memo seen by Reuters and confirmed by a source at the company. -China trade war - was being undermined by the protests, which began in June.

Those suspicions have been reinforced by the fact that numerous signs wielded by anti-government demonstrators are in English, and footage has appeared on social media showing some protesters waving the Stars and Stripes, singing the United States national anthem. She said many area residents did not support the demonstrations. "Although they don't understand (everything) yet, they might be able to experience freedom, the human need to just do what they want".

Police said on Sunday they had arrested 16 people during the protests on Saturday for charges including unlawful assembly and possession of an offensive weapon. Running battles between police and protesters are again dominating the news. "We still have our rights", she told AFP. A large crowd sat under umbrellas, which are both a protest symbol in Hong Kong and protection from the summer heat.

In the working class district of Sham Shui Po, over a thousand people, including middle aged and elderly marched to protest against the government.

The protests began after Hong Kong's government tried introducing an extradition bill that would have allowed defendants to be sent to mainland China for trial.

The fresh demonstrations came after the city's leader Carrie Lam pledged she would not grant concessions to the protesters as their movement enters its third month.

Thousands of mostly young activists filled the airport's arrivals hall for a second day, some sitting and shouting slogans, while others drew protest posters and greeted arriving passengers.

Activists also staged a protest at the global airport to make arriving tourists aware of their campaign.

"There are clashes in the recent protests and many parents are anxious", said Fion Yim, 35, representative of the organising committee for what was billed as the family protest.

In a statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry urged the USA diplomatic office in Hong Kong to "immediately make a clean break with various anti-China rioters" and "stop interfering in Hong Kong's affairs immediately".

Lam defended her government's handling of the protests in a phone call with Britain's foreign secretary, Dominic Raab.
