    Then I guess they don't want to get infected by people who have taken patriotic vaccines? Who knows ... isnt a rather irrelevant tangent to focus on. Unless you missed the required ...

    Hindsight...I just noticed the main consulate guy wearing mask too. Protestor should have just taken off his mask and sneezed on the "unidentified men".

    For the same reason that all protestors wore them in HK, and for the same reason that the government started to enact legislation to ban the wearing of masks outdoors. Even two years into Covid, last I read was that this legislation was still being pushed (albeit slowly) through an approval process.

    Or was that one of them retorikal questions?

    Certainly how it worked in the UK. Only once did I know a protest not get a permit.

    You can't deal with China and get any real results using this politician shit. You'll just be wasting your own time...

    What a load of rubbish, grabbing and forcefully pulling someone into the grounds and they said someone entered illegally so they had to take necessary measures WTF

    China's foreign ministry has defended an incident which saw a Hong Kong protester pulled into Chinese consulate grounds in the British city of Manchester and beaten up.

    A spokesman said people had "illegally entered" the grounds and any country's diplomats would have taken "necessary measures" to protect their premises.
