    All I can think about is how determinedly and hastily they force others off the road when they (purportedly) clear it for cars.

    Protesting for rights = public nuisance
    Bogus arrests = enforcing the law

    So, finally today I was on the "frontlines" with my other colleagues (the regulars). New Year -new start off, should I say? Lol. Lost count of how many times I had a narrow escape from the popo.I really admired the courage and team work of everyone -all strangers who had never seen each other before.

    Although, I admit at times I was frightened like a mouse, the moment, Carrie's chaps in green did something, my blood boiled and you know what after that. On a side note, seeing HSBC whimper with wounds gave me some "satisfaction" .Personally, that bank stands enemy to my eyes.


    Happy New Year everyone.

    Well we appreciate your effort, courage, and participation, although I don’t necessarily agree HSBC deserves it. Glad you’re safe, and happy new year!

    If as reported, sounds more like harassment and intimidation than policing. Why don’t they go to Yuen Long and use these tactics on the white shirts?

    If that’s the message the police are sending at the start of the year, I’m guessing it won’t be long before the radicals respond in kind. Good luck and stay safe everyone.

    Another view of the police, out of control, at the HSBC in Wan Chai...

    Mostly pepper spraying old people and those too slow to run away...the guy that people were washing out his eyes in the convenience store was easily in his 70s...

    I am definitely getting more radical each time we hear these things.

    Well, radical in front of my tv anyway. But I'd love to give some of these fake popo a stern talking to.

    I did not see this posted.

    Not sure who attacked it, but I do think that the HSBC lions have been well regarded in HK across generations.

    I am not going to be too quick and blame the police or the protestors - just saying.
