Hong Kong protests today

Yang Guang

The global airport, one of the world's busiest, said in a statement on Monday that the demonstration has "seriously disrupted" airport operations.

Pointing to an estimated average daily rate of MOP$790 million through the first 11 days of August, Bernstein analysts Vitaly Umansky, Eunice Lee and Kelsey Zhu said, "We are beginning to see a negative impact from the protests in Hong Kong which is causing some transport disruption and beginning to create a headwind to China visitation into Hong Kong (and onward visitation into Macau). The recovery may take a long time", she said.

Members of the public have been warned to avoid the area.

The demonstrators have accused police of causing the injury by firing a bean-bag round, and cite the case as evidence of what they say has been an excessive and disproportionate response by police to their protests.

During a general strike on Monday, more than 100 flights were cancelled because airline and airport employees were participating in the protest. Demands quickly escalated for the resignation of Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam, an independent investigation into police brutality against demonstrators, and pro-independence reforms.

"We are calling for peace, for order, for dialogue. we certainly call on China to be very careful and very respectful in how it deals with people who have legitimate concerns in Hong Kong", Trudeau told a televised news conference in Toronto.

"Radical Hong Kong protesters have repeatedly used extremely unsafe tools to attack police officers", said Yang Guang, a spokesman for the Chinese government's Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office, in remarks translated by Chinese state media.

Riot police use pepper spray against protesters during protests in Hong Kong.

Banners at the rally in Victoria Park read "Give Hong Kong back to us" and "Withdraw the evil law", the latter a reference to an extradition bill that was the original spark for the protests.

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster tweeted Sunday that Drake was "my favorite coach that I've ever had in this game". Darryl had such an impact on the players he coached and everyone he worked with throughout his entire career.

Hong Kong flag carrier Cathay Pacific (0293.HK) said on its website it had canceled more than 200 flights into and out of the airport on Tuesday and that it would only operate a limited number of flights for connecting passengers.

Hong Kong International Airport said in a statement the demonstration "seriously disrupted" airport operations.

"Hong Kong people will not be the loser, because they are on the right side of history".

Legislators and journalists were invited to witness the display of extreme crowd control tactics, which came after a weekend of protests at the airport and on the streets of one of the city's main shopping districts.

It may cancel more flights Tuesday depending on the situation as some protesters remained at the arrival hall.

Most of the protesters had left the airport shortly after midnight, with about 50 still there on Tuesday morning. Seventy belong to the Hong Kong legislature and the rest represent different sectors like business and agriculture.

On Friday, China's Civil Aviation Administration said it will ban Cathay Pacific staff from supporting or participating in "illegal demonstrations, protests and violent attacks, as well as those who have had radical behaviours" from working on flights.

"I feel that I have to do something".
