In Hongkong sind nach Veranstalterangaben etwa 80.000 Menschen auf der Straße. Was als Studentenproteste angefangen hat, ist inzwischen zu einer Bürgerdemonstration geworden. Eine Demonstrantin schildert gegenüber RadiUM ihre ganz persönliche Sicht der Lage.

I just went back from the protest rally outside the government building. There was serious conflict between the protesters and the police in the afternoon. The police used tear gas. I could still smell it in the evening. My eyes hurt a little. A man immediatly offered me water to wash. There were so many young volunteers providing water, food, and masks to people, and clearing way for ambulance. Protesters were at a stand-off with the police. They raised their hands when tension happened. I would say there were more than ten thousand people outside the government building. Mostly youth, stand in the crowd patiently. Rumors said that the police used plastic bullets. I haven’t seen that. I think there would be chaos if the police did use bullets. But I didn’t see such chaos. Some protesters also said there weren’t bullets. A girl told me not to spread the wrong words.
