“Police Imperils People’s Lives” Healthcarers Protest Police Brutality Flooding Chater
Police brutality has been a core grievance for Hong Kong’s protesters, whose fury has been sustained by a regular barrage of social media clips showing officers carrying out violent and indiscriminate arrests, resulting in strong social resentment. A group of medical professionals who love Hong Kong gathered at the Chater Park in Central this evening to condemn police brutality.
The healthcare professional who initiated the rally published a “Letter to Hong Kong People from Healthcare Professionals”. The letter pointed out that after 4 months of anti-extradition movement, the government has turned a deaf ear to the public’s demands and invoked a mask ban that creates a devastating division in the society. The police uses excessive violence on the public and imperils people’s lives. As medical professionals who safeguard the lives of the citizens on the front line, they are duty-bound to speak out.
The healthcare professionals condemn the abuse of power and indiscriminate arrest by the police, ignoring the Hospital Authority Bylaws have reached an unacceptable level. After a pregnant woman was arrested, a male police officer guarded and entered the delivery room. After a 14-year-old boy was shot with live bullet and arrested, a large number of riot police in full gear toted guns in the hospital, and hindered the patients and staff from access. Some police officers have blocked humanitarian rescue and arrested frontline medical and first aid workers. They strongly condemned the police for abuse of power, violence, flaunting laws and regulations, and obstructed volunteers to conduct humanitarian emergency services for victims at the protest site.
At 6 pm, people flooded Chater Garden in Central. Some people could only stood on the pavement outside the Court of Final Appeal and chanted “Hong Kong people, Resist”. A huge banner “Investigate police brutality, Desire of Hong Kong people”, A light panel “Free HK” was hoisted.
