Hong Kong: Pro-Democracy Activists Refuse to Yield

Published on 08 Sep 2019 / In News & Politics

Protesters continued to gather near Mong Kok Police Station in Hong Kong, Saturday, September 7, as demonstrations continued across the city.

Hong Kong severely limited transportation services to its airport Saturday in an attempt to prevent any demonstrations from taking place there this weekend.

Express trains trains are running from downtown to the airport with no stops in between.

The only people allowed to enter the terminals are those who have flight tickets.

Authorities are seeking to avoid a second straight weekend of upheaval, after demonstrators last weekend blocked airport approach roads and caused upheaval at train stations.

Hong Kong’s airport was forced to close in August when protesters occupied terminals. China called the behavior "near-terrorist acts" and some protesters later issued an apology.
