Protesters in the Chinese city of Hong Kong are attacking police officers with Molotov cocktails, leaving some policemen injured, local media reported on Sunday.

At least one police officer was hospitalized over sustained burns, the South China Morning Post newspaper reported.

Sunday witnessed a new wave of protests in Hong Kong with clashes between activists and law enforcement officers having erupted in at least three districts of the city. Police resorted to tear gas to disperse the protesters.

Several protesters carried the flag of the United States of America while singing the National Anthem over loudspeakers to many cheers and even some singing along. The feeling was surreal as for this moment in time, real history was about to be made. (No, not the first transsexual to use a public toilet) But real history. It turns out, that is exactly what is happening.

Mass protests in Hong Kong started in June as a reaction to new amendments to extradition laws that, if passed, would allow people to be extradited from Hong Kong to mainland China. The Hong Kong government suspended the amendments, but the protesters remain intransigent and demand the complete abandonment of the initiative.

Hong Kong became a part of China in 1997 after being a British colony for some 150 years.

Looking at our own protests here at home, we’d have to say Antifa could learn a thing or two from these people and perhaps in that learning they could also know just how easy the government here has been on them.
