Hong Kong braces for fresh anti-government march

AIR
In Hong Kong, thousands of protesters gathered at the city centre today for the latest in a series of anti-government mass protests. The protest march today marks the seventh consecutive weekend when residents have come out en masse against the government. 

Police have warned of possible violence. Security officials yesterday said that they discovered 2 kilograms of powerful homemade explosives, petrol bombs, acid, knives and metal rods. The police said they found anti-extradition bill banners on the premises.

The protests, which began over a now suspended extradition bill, have turned into a wider democracy movement in the Chinese territory. The demonstrations have at times paralysed parts of the financial district, shut government offices and disrupted business operations across the city. Officials have also warned about the impact of the unrest on the economy.


Meanwhile, China's state-run Global Times today said that Beijing will not allow extremists and external forces to take down Hong Kong’s legal system.
