#AceNewsReport – July.01: Tens of thousands of pro-Beijing protesters are rallying in support of the police in Hong Kong: The demonstrators, dressed in white and blue and waving Chinese flags, oppose the anti-extradition protests that have taken over the city this month: Two record-breaking rallies were held against a proposed law that would see suspects extradited to mainland China: On 12 June police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse crowds – the worst violence in the city in decades: Hong Kong’s justice secretary Teresa Cheng later ruled out an investigation into police brutality: However, the demonstrations forced the government to apologise and suspend the planned bill.
Local media say about 165,000 pro-Beijing protesters turned up to the rally in Tamar Park on Sunday: This is far fewer than the number of people who protested against the extradition bill – activist groups put the figure at about two million for the latest rally: However it is a sign of significant pro-Beijing movement in the territory.
AFP: “I can’t put up with people’s behaviour towards police,” Frances Yu, 70, told AFP news agency…………….A 54-year-old office worker, who gave his name only as Wong, also told AFP police were trying to “maintain order”, and called the anti-extradition protesters “senseless”………….A few dozen counter-protesters have also been demonstrating nearby.
