The Embarrassing bans and a massive police presence on Saturday in Hong Kong prevented major protests from government opponents on Saturday. Smaller actions, organized by Beijing-friendly forces with red Chinese national flags, near the shopping Amoy Mall, also resulted in fights and squabbles with China-critical protesters. There was an unknown number of arrests reported.

A planned march in Tin Shui Wan near the border with China had not been approved by the police. Despite the ban came a few hundred protesters. “Many people are afraid of violating laws, so they did not come”, one participant said. The protest rally broke up quickly after the security forces came across. The police had mobilized a large contingent.

Some pro-Chinese demonstrators in light blue T-shirts with the words “I love the Hong Kong police” went out in the Fortress Hill area, sometimes with their flagpoles and kicks, to spectators or possible China-critical demonstrators, as in a video of the public Transmitter, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) was seen. There was a scuffle at the metro station, South China Morning Post” reported.

For security reasons, the police planned to ban a mass demonstration scheduled for Sunday. For more than four months, there have been protests in HK against the local government and the communist leadership in Beijing for its growing influence in Hong Kong. Following the demonstrations, there have been repeated clashes between the police and demonstrators.

Since its return in 1997 to China, the former British crown colony has been autonomously governed by its own constitution, based on the principle of “one country, two systems”. The seven million Hong Kong citizens are under China’s sovereignty, but enjoy rights such as freedom of expression and the assembly, unlike the people of the Chinese Communist Republic. Many also call for free elections as they were once promised.
