Hong Kong Protesters Issue Demands, Begin Leaving a University
Friday, 15 November 2019 23:26 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Protesters who had barricaded themselves in a Hong Kong university this week began to leave Friday after partially clearing a road they had blocked and demanding that the government commit to going ahead with local elections on Nov. 24.

It wasn't immediately clear why the protesters at the Chinese University of Hong Kong were leaving, or where they might go next.

The university's president, Rocky Tuan, urged everyone to leave, saying the situation was out of control and that the university may need to seek government help.

Earlier, the protesters cleared one lane in each direction on Tolo Highway. Workers sent in to clean up remaining debris and set up traffic cones were heckled by protesters, who pointed bows and arrows at them, government officials said, but the two lanes were re-opened around midday.

The protesters said at a 3 a.m. news conference that the road would be blocked again and warned of other unspecified consequences if the government didn™t meet their demand within 24 hours.

Students and other protesters have taken over major campuses in Hong Kong this week, building barricades and stockpiling gasoline bombs and other weapons.
