Hong Kong police fire tear gas, water cannon amid protests

While the world is distracted by COVID-19 Red China continues to demonstrate what they are really about.

Hong Kong police fired tear gas and a water cannon as thousands took to the streets Sunday — as controversial new security laws from China aimed at crushing the protests sparked the most intense clashes in months. Crowds of pro-democracy demonstrators dressed in black gathered in a popular shopping district, chanting slogans such as “Stand with Hong Kong,” “Liberate Hong Kong” and “Revolution of our times.” The protest did not receive official authorization — and broke local coronavirus social-distancing restrictions, which ban groups of more than eight people meeting. Police raised blue flags, warning protesters to disperse, before firing multiple rounds of tear gas — then firing from a water cannon.

The country is virtually shut down. Businesses are closing. Unemployment offices are being swamped by new claims. And suddenly just the act of leaving your house can make you the object of police action like the one below and a governor just snatching freedoms away at a whim. While we are “hunkered down” at home the stateists are stealing our country right out from under us.
