Hong Kong Protesters Fight Police Attacks With Umbrellas
Police defended their use of tear gas and other methods to control the pro-democracy protests that have paralyzed Hong Kong’s financial district, and appealed Monday for an end to the unprecedented acts of civil disobedience.
The images coming out of Hong Kong are staggering. Tear gas and pepper spray met tens of thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong’s Central District Monday, leading to the already iconic use of umbrellas to fend off police tactics. The protests have shut down banks, businesses, and schools and show no sign of letting up.
