Classes Suspended at Hong Kong Schools

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam center speaks during a press conference in Hong Kong Monday Nov. 11 2019

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, speaking after a weekly meeting with advisers, called the blocking of the morning commute "a very selfish act".

Many banks and shops in bustling commercial areas shut on Wednesday, while Hong Kong's Jockey Club cancelled its evening races. Passengers on one commuter train disembarked short of the station and were escorted along the tracks in video shown on Hong Kong television. Therefore, no matter how legitimate the demands of the Hong Kong protesters are, taking recourse to violence can not be justified under any circumstances.

Fresh lunchtime protests in the financial district saw crowds gather to chant slogans.

Hong Kong Hospital Authority estimated on Wednesday morning that 81 people were injured in the preceding 24 hours. The Chinese government's liaison office in the city, which represents Beijing's interests, set up a hotline to help students trying to get back across the border.

After two days of fiery demonstrations at the prominent school, anti-government protesters continued to occupy the Sha Tin-based campus late on Wednesday.

Some universities and schools in Hong Kong remained closed Tuesday over safety concerns, and the need to fix facilities.

The protests started in June against plans to allow extradition to the mainland - which many feared would undermine the city's freedoms.

Hong Kong is under China since 1998 under "One Country - Two Systems" rule.

Hong Kong no doubt is facing a serious political crisis and calling protesters, however wrong they are, enemies of the country is not the right approach.

They hunkered down for possible clashes with police at university campuses.

Student Elina Neverdal Hjoennevaag told the Norwegian broadcaster NRK on Wednesday they were being sent to a hotel, adding: "I don't really know what is happening".

"Regardless of their demands, violence is not the way and it will not be successful", he said.

The service was established in 2013 for recent graduates looking for jobs in the tech hub.

What happened at the university last night?


Responding to the ads, Hong Kong pop singer and activist Denise Ho took to Twitter on November 13 to express her disappointment by posting a photo with the front pages of eight different newspapers laid side by side.

Hong Kong's Education Bureau has suspended classes at primary and secondary schools for Thursday because of violence and described the situation in the city as "chilling".

Many mainland China students have fled violence in Hong Kong to take advantage of a program that offers them free temporary accommodation in the mainland city of Shenzhen. As of Wednesday mid-morning, several thousand students were on campus, many armed with petrol bombs, bows, and other impromptu weapons, as more supplies were brought to campus by auto and on foot. But until recently, campuses were a relative safe zone from violent street clashes.

The protest movement has been fuelled by Beijing's tightening control over Hong Kong.

"It seems they want to use the university campus as the venue for a long-time fight", he said of the occupiers. By 8 a.m. police had already fired tear gas on the city's streets.

The Chinese government's liaison office in Hong Kong said the semi-autonomous territory is "slipping into the abyss of terrorism". And setting a man on fire just because he has a different point of view is abominable.

Streets inside and outside the Chinese University campus entrance were littered with bricks, other debris and small street fires as police tackled some protesters to the ground.

A masked person on Monday doused a 57-year-old man, who had been arguing with protesters, with a flammable liquid and set him on fire. A man shot by police on Monday and another man set on fire by protesters both remain in critical condition. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a regular press briefing. Let's face it, the entire worldwide community recognises that Hong Kong is part of China.
