Hong Kong students form human chains

As protesters make their way through the shopping area of Causeway Bay with police officers chasing them, some shoppers are locked inside stores to avoid getting mixed up in the confrontation. Angry protesters smashed glass windows, sprayed graffiti and started a fire at one at the station's exits. They tossed street signs and emptied trash cans down the subway stairwells and began building barricades in the streets.

The protests, which took place in Hong Kong's central business district, were dispersed by police firing tear gas.

Democrats and Republicans "stand united" in backing the people of Hong Kong and their pursuit of democracy, she said.

Authorities have even targeted prominent activists who have not been at the forefront of the recent protests.

Separately, well-known Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong was released Monday, a day after he was detained at the airport.

Following the fresh bail on Monday, Wong is said to be preparing again for the overseas trips.

The bipartisan bill, first introduced in June, would require the U.S. Secretary of State to annually certify that Hong Kong is "sufficiently autonomous" from China to merit special treatment from the United States that is afforded to it by the U.S. -Hong Kong Policy Act. They chanted "Resist Beijing, Liberate Hong Kong" and "Stand with Hong Kong, fight for freedom". He said he was then detained in China until he was allowed to return to Hong Kong as mainland officers asked him to get a hard disc containing a customer list from his bookstore. Marching to the U.S. consulate can only alienate the real political ally of the protest movement in Hong Kong-that is, the Chinese working class.

Hundreds of secondary school students in Hong Kong formed human chains on Monday to urge the government to meet their demands. He said he wants to pressure the government to change its attitude. The law would require the USA to certify Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy on an annual basis to justify its special trade status.

Hong Kong Protests

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam's biggest concession yet to protesters did little to stem scenes of violence that have become the norm on weekends in the Asian financial hub. Many saw the bill as a glaring example of the Chinese territory's eroding autonomy since the former British colony was returned to China in 1997. Instead, President Trump has called upon China to handle the protests peacefully. The bill has since been formally withdrawn. He said Lam "has every reason to be anxious about a strong USA response" when Congress sits again.

"We are in a very urgent situation", said Cody, a 30-year-old IT worker. 'Please support us in our fight'.

Members of Congress have been watching Hong Kong and discussing legislation through the summer recess. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said last week that lawmakers should move quickly to advance the bill. "It's a blatant violation of commitment to Hong Kong's autonomy Beijing made in an worldwide treaty". Chan had two press passes visible and was not wearing protective facial gear, he wrote.

Last month Trump suggested China should "humanely" settle the problem in Hong Kong before a trade deal is reached with Washington.

The appeal for U.S. intervention comes despite President Donald Trump's characterisation of Chinese leader Xi Jinping as "a great leader who very much has the respect of his people".

Students attend a rally to highlight the five demands protesters are asking from the government, at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) in Hong Kong on September 9, 2019.

It should be pointed out "Wong" is anxious about what might happen if Hong Kong approves policies which go against USA interests.

Washington has rejected China's allegations that it is backing the demonstrators.
