Hong Kong grounds all flights as protest paralyzes airport: Live updates – CNN
Most protesters have cleared out of the airport, with only a few hundred left, but some others are now gathering in the district of Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island.
Police on scene are warning through a loudspeaker that this gathering constitutes an unlawful assembly, and that protesters should leave — to which protesters shout back that they’re not causing any harm.
The small crowd say they’re planning to submit a letter to the Hong Kong police commissioner, and are chanting, “Stop firing tear gas.”
One police officer came out to meet the protesters and receive the letter, even posing for a photo with the protesters.
There is widespread anger at the police today, after a female protester was injured in the eye yesterday night during clashes with police who were trying to disperse crowds. Many posters, flyers, and pieces of protest art today showed a bloody eye, or faces with one eye covered or missing.
