‘The government has still not responded to our demands’
“Confrontation is expected, it doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas,” one protester who did not want to be named told Reuters news agency.
“I’m disappointed the government still didn’t respond to any of our … demands. We continue to come out even if we don’t have much hope,” he added.
Hundreds of protesters, many dressed in black and with face masks on, chanted slogans like “Liberate Hong Kong!” and “Revolution of our times!” There were reportedly no major clashes, but police employed tear gas for the first time in December on the 24th and 25th.
