Hong Kong International Airport has cancelled all of its outbound flights after thousands of protesters swamped the busy hub on Monday to protest against police brutality on sporadic demonstrations that cropped up across the city on Sunday.
This marked the fourth day of protests at the airport, where demonstrators passed out fliers and held up posters informing new arrivals of the city’s long-running protest movement.
Both Hall A and B of the arrival level and the non-restricted area of the departure level are swamped with protesters in black. But they will allow passengers to pass through.
Protesters’ anger was compounded by an incident during Sunday’s clashes in which a young woman was shot in the eye with what was believed to be a bean bag round. Images of the injured woman exploded across social and mainstream media, prompting a fresh outpouring of rage at a police force that has been facing accusations of brutality for months now.
Protesters plan to continue the sit-in at the airport everyday if flights resume.
