Police Unleash Tear Gas in Hong Kong Protests


#1

HONG KONG — In a significant escalation of their efforts to suppress protests calling for democracy, the authorities in Hong Kong unleashed tear gas, mobilized riot police with long-barreled guns and closed a subway station Sunday to disperse crowds that have besieged the city government for three days. But thousands of residents wielding only umbrellas and face masks defied police orders to clear the area.

It would seem that the protesters are calling for democracy. I hope that Hong Kong and all of China becomes a democracy soon.
