Hong Kong Elders March in Support of Young Demonstrators
Wednesday, 17 July 2019 23:35 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Thousands of Hong Kong senior citizens, including a popular actress, marched Wednesday in a show of support for youths at the forefront of monthlong protests against a contentious extradition bill in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.

The seniors also slammed the police for their handling of a protest Sunday in Hong Kong™s Sha Tin district. That protest was mostly peaceful but ended in mayhem when violent scuffles in a shopping mall saw dozens injured, including a policeman who had a finger bitten off, and over 40 people detained.

Veteran actress and singer Deanie Ip joined Wednesday™s demonstration, and said police shouldn™t use heavy-handed tactics against young protesters, who œhave no guns and were peacefully expressing their frustrations.

Ip and several others held a banner reading œSupport youth to protect Hong Kong as they marched through a financial district.
