The protesters in Hong Kong addressed to the President of the United States Donald Trump asking to save the city. About it reports Reuters.
It is noted that during the protest the demonstrators carried American flags and posters with democratic slogans. They also chanted “Fight for freedom support Hong Kong” and “Resist the Beijing, free Hong Kong”.
“When the US is mired in a trade war with China, it is a good opportunity for us to show how Pro-Chinese groups also violate the rights of people in Hong Kong and contribute to police brutality”, — told reporters one of the protestors.
The protests in Hong Kong have lasted over two months. Mass protests began in June in response to the plans of the district administration to allow extradition of suspects in crimes on the mainland. Despite the refusal of the authorities of Hong Kong from the implementation of these plans, the demonstrators began to demand the investigation of unnecessarily harsh police action against protesters and the resignation of Lam as head of the regional administration.
