Unknown thugs’ attacked and beat pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong on Friday night, drawing blood as they tore down demonstrators’ tents and tried to force them out.
Student heads called off dialogues with the government, after the government offered the force on protestor and students is condemning officials for permitting violence to be used against them and it dashed the hopes of a resolution to a mass group that has seen tens of thousands of people take to the streets of the city at its height.
The democracy protesters Martin Lee, Occupy Central leader and Benny Tai, blamed the government for the brutality in Mong Kok, a crowded area also famous with shoppers and the area is also identified for its gangster’s existence.
Police soon after verified the news that a number of the 19 people arrested had triad backgrounds and the results of fighting added a new tension to protests involving tens of thousands of students and protesters from the Occupy group who have controlled the streets for almost a week in hot and humid temperatures.
Activist Dorothy Lui, a 22-year-old public health student at the Chinese University of Hong Kong said that people here are getting hyper and less normal and annoyed because of the past week, because of this she was tensed the shift in mood among exhausted students, most of whom have been blocked city streets for a week. She further said that the trust between police and students had been totally broken after last Sunday’s use of tear gas and anger at perceived operational from police during the fighting on Friday and it’s quite risky if a lot of huge crowds have mad emotions against police and government.
When the news spread on social media that the protest place in Mong Kok had been attacked, thousands of people gathered at the scene, surrounding leaders of the attack, shouting at police to arrest them and the law and order situation in Mong Kok was very terrible after thugs attacks on the protestor last night.
