Hong Kong protesters are reportedly planning two protest events tomorrow (Friday) and Sunday.

A group calling themselves Hong Kong Mothers urged residents to join protest on Friday evening (tomorrow) at Chater Garden in Central, to share and voice support for young protesters.

“We will make our voice heard by the authorities. It is their time to act and fulfill their commitment to protecting and respecting life.

“We will urge the government to hear and respond to the demands of the young and other Hong Kong residents.

“Our hearts are guiding the young protesters and we only hope that peace can be restored in a society that is now divided.

“Are we able to get out of the comfort zone, sit and hear the voice of the young, understand the pain and wrath and find a way forward together?” The group quoted the media.

Meanwhile, a protest on Sunday will start at Salisbury Gardens in the city’s Tsim Sha Tsui area at midday and heading towards West Kowloon Railway Station, where the speed train from mainland China stops.

The feeling of voicing protests against the controversial extradition bill which, if passed, would allow suspects in Hong Kong to be sent to mainland China.

While discussing an online protest march, they said the rally would target tourists from the mainland and share with them the value of Hong Kong so they could take him back to ‘every corner of China.

They urge protests to be held safely, rational and not violent.

The government-controlled media in the mainland partially looked down on the objection, displaying protesters as violent radicals.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam condemned a violent raid on the parliament building (LegCo). So far, police in the city have detained at least 13 people in protest-related activities.

Police also detained nine people, seven men and two women for cyber attacks or ‘doxxing’ on police websites and inciting others to do damage.

Doxxing termed as an act of exposing personal data online stolen from targets with embarrassing intent or inciting attacks on them.
