Hundreds of protesters in Hong Kong blocked train service during the early hours of this morning, causing commuter service interruption in a recent anti-government campaign on the former British colony.

The protests, which began three months ago in protest of an extradition bill allowing Hong Kongers to be sent to China for trial, have now turned into bigger protests against the city government and political ‘masters’ in Beijing.

The protests took place almost daily, at a time when the notice was too short to disrupt businesses, exacerbate pressure on the Hong Kong government and force widespread police monitoring, until they were accused of using force.

A group of protesters blocked the train gate, interrupted train service and forced hundreds to leave the train station in search of alternative transportation.

“We are not sure how long we will be here, we do not have a leader, as you can see, this is a mass movement,” said a masked protester, who did not want to reveal her real name.

“It’s not our intention to make people uncomfortable, but we need to make the authorities understand why we’re protesting. We will continue to protest for as long as it takes, ” She said.

The train service operator, MTR Corp, said some of the services were disrupted and urged people to use alternate transport.
