Some netizens feel that police have been arresting indiscriminately with brutality. The Carrie Lam government invoked the Emergency Laws to pass the mask ban is worrying. A 5-district flashmob is planned today, including Hong Kong Island, joint Tsim Sha Tsui x Mong Kok, Kwun Tong and Lai Chi Kok and Kwai Fong.
For Hong Kong Island, protesters gathered at Chater Garden in Central at 12:45 pm. Over 1000 people came and a huge banner reading “People Masked, Carrie Lam Heartless” was hung.
Most people wear masks undaunted by the mask ban. At 1 pm, the crowd march on the road headed for Pedder Street in Central. They occupied the westbound lane and chanted “HongKongers, Resist.”
