Hong Kong protesters rally against China’s Uighur crackdown

Many Hong Kongers are watching the scale of China’s crackdown in Xinjiang with fear. A protest in support of the Uighurs was violently put down by riot police.

Hong Kong riot police on Sunday forcefully broke up a rally of pro-democracy protesters showing solidarity with China’s oppressed Uighur minority.

Around 1,000 people gathered peacefully near Hong Kong’s Harbourfront, waving Uighur flags and posters in the latest in nearly seven months of protests against China in the semi-autonomous city.

“We shall not forget those who share a common goal with us, our struggle for freedom and democracy and the rage against the Chinese Communist Party,” one speaker shouted through the loudspeaker to the crowd.

Police later swooped in using pepper spray to disperse protesters, who countered by throwing glass bottles and rocks.
