Rallies against tear gas and for Trump in Hong Kong

Rallies against tear gas and for Trump in Hong Kong

Police fired tear gas in Hong Kong, mark the end of a week of relative calm since district elections.

David Doyle reports.

In a Hong Kong square, hundreds gathered against police use of tear gas on Sunday.

Families with their children carrying placards and yellow balloons following a week of relative calm.

(SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese), 30-YEAR-OLD PURCHASING MANAGER AND MOTHER OF ONE, PEARL CHAN, SAYING: "It bothers everyone from kids to adults.

It's as if entire society needs to come to a halt, people don't dare to come out on account of the risk of tear gas." Their message does not seem to have been heard.

Elsewhere, police fired volleys of tear gas and deployed pepper spray.

- marking the end to a lull in violence since district elections a week ago that delivered an overwhelming victory to pro-democracy candidates.

Activists have pledged to maintain the momentum of their movement, and on Sunday thousands were marching, urging people not to forget the reason to protest - anger at perceived Chinese meddling in Hong Kong's freedoms. That march followed another earlier in the day to the U.S. consulate where the American national anthem was sung as a thanks to President Donald Trump.

Trump has recently signed into law two bills that would ban exports of anti-riot munitions to China and impose possible sanctions based on its handling of Hong Kong, which drew a sharp rebuke from Beijing's foreign ministry.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) TEACHER, RAMA CHAN, 30, SAYING: "The U.S. and China have many trade issues and U.S. can put very big pressure to China to give Hong Kong democracy." But at a rival pro-China rally they weren't so keen with this Beijing backer saying that Hong Kongers don't need to rely on the U.S. and that Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong.

Tibetans hold anti-China protest in solidarity with Special Frontier Force commando in New York

Members of the Tibetan community in New York organised a protest against China at Jackson Heights, also known as Little India, to show their solidarity with SSF (Special Frontier Force) commando Nyima Tenzin. Nyima, a Tibetan-Indian hero of the elite covert paramilitary unit SFF was killed on the night of 29-30 August in eastern Ladakh in India. The 51-year old soldier died after he stepped on to a 1962 vintage anti-personnel mine near the southern bank of the Pangong lake. The Tibetan community across the world is angry about China's recent aggression in Ladakh and they accused Beijing for occupying Tibet for the past several decades. The Tibetan National Congress led by President Tseten Lhagyal also held solidarity prayers as a tribute to brave SFF commando Nyima Tenzin. The Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) belongs to the Tibetan refugee community that has settled in India due to Chinese atrocities.
