Hong Kong: Anti-govt protesters scuffle with police during NY march

Scuffles broke out between protesters and police in Hong Kong on Monday as thousands of people marched to protest against what they describe as suppression by Beijing. “Pro-democracy” protesters mainly demonstrated against a plan for a part of a city rail station in the semiautonomous territory to work under Chinese law. Central government officials are normally not allowed to apply mainland... Еще law in Hong Kong under the «one country, two systems» principle. Campaigners shouted out “protect Hong Kong” and “defend rule of law”. They claimed that breaking this convention would mean ceding Hong Kong's land to China. “The HK people tried to come back to this station because we think that this station belongs to all HK people, not only the surrounding space”, claimed People Power party member Tam Tak-Chi. The station will form part of a high-speed rail line, which will open in the second half of 2018, connecting Hong Kong and China's southern province of Guangdong.
