Hong Kong Police said 53 people had been arrested and charged with unlawful assembly, adding that earlier some protesters tried to blockade roads in the area

Women are arrested and led onto a bus by police during a protest against China's planned national security law in Hong Kong on June 28, 2020.Hong Kong police arrested at least 53 people on Sunday after scuffles erupted during a relatively peaceful protest against planned national security legislation to be implemented by the mainland Chinese government.

However, chanting and slogans were shouted towards police and later scuffles broke out in Mong Kok, prompting police to use pepper spray to subdue parts of the crowd. Hong Kong Police said on Facebook that 53 people had been arrested and charged with unlawful assembly, adding that earlier some protesters tried to blockade roads in the area.

China has said the law will target only a small group of troublemakers as it tackles separatism, subversion, terrorism and foreign interference in Hong Kong.

PoliceBrutality is HK Gov's tool to supress freedom of assembly. The NationalSecurityLaw is CCP's tool to suppress FREEDOM.

The tyrannical regime, combined with nationalsecuritylaw, must reinforce hkpolicebrutality. HK has become a HKPoliceState where HKPF can arbitrarily arrest pedestrians, absurdly separated the father from his son and wife. Magnitskyact must be imposed to sanction HKPolice

No one is as safe as they used to be. This fabulous island will not drown physically, it is her characteristics that are buried - freedom, rule of law, justice, financial & political stability!

This is horrible act of violence that will not and should not be tolerated in any part of the free world. These so call police has done this for months, yet Carrie Lam's government cave and never disciplined any of these rogue officers because there are too many of these.

The national security law is weaponized to exterminate dissent who strive for freedom & democracy in HK. The CCP is destroying HK's rule of law. Expect arbitrary arrests of Expats and locals in the name of 'threat to national security' just like Spavor & Kovrig StandWithHK

No reason to restrict the freedom of assembly. We are born with freedom of assembly.

No more freedom and democracy in Hong Kong... Unlawful arrests and brutal assaults happen every day now, esp when the CCP is pushing hard for the evil national security laws. Wish the free world would aligned and fight against the tyranny. MagniskyAct StandWithHongKong


After seeing this photo I think you would understand how valid these arrests were. outrageous shameless HongKongProtests hongkongpolicestate HongKongAutonomyAct needed

Hong Kong is now a police state: they will arrest whoever on the streets as they want. Rule of law is dead.

HKPF randomly arrested people in a crowded area, Monk Kok. There were people hanging on the street with their family during the weekend. National security law will be passed and enforced next week. It is likely these people will be on the watching list. PoliceBrutality

In the past year, the number of arrests was close to 10,000, while the official prosecution was less than 1,800. The police is want to make Hong Kong people “cannnot”; “will not” take to the streets to demonstrate again. NewWestBerlin EnemyOfThePeople

Today, a young kid witnessed the arrest of his father. Terrified, and kept crying. His mother tried to prove to HKPoliceTerrorists their family stayed tgt all the time, yet being ignored. Why does a young kid have to go thru this? Clearly human rights has been deprived in HK.

And the government said we enjoy the freedom of speech and protest

Even the law hasn't been passed, HongKongers freedom is already getting more suppress from CCP 1/ All recent demonstrations were banned 2/ Police arrest people randomly 3/ Pro-Beijing ppl attack HKer without consequences And HK govt claims HKer enjoy more freedom & rights☹

Do the HK police have specific duty to arrest law abiding citizens?

And Beijing's henchmen, the true criminals, easily got away after attacking a minor. 'Your footages of the thuggery won't be accepted,' HKPolice told civilians as they escorted the attackers away. This'll be HongKong tomorrow, under the draconian NationalSecurityLaw. SOSHK

The CCP unilaterally violated the Sino-British Joint Declaration signed at the United Nations, Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong and a high degree of autonomy! The CCP clearly challenged international laws. Now the CCP enforces a national security law, which severely damages

It appears that the HongKongPolice is obsessed with randomly arresting innocent civilians. Hong Kong has fallen into a PoliceState & where people's safety is endangered by the police, who is supposed to protect the people standwithHongKong HongKongProtests

Hong Kong police arrest the child’s dad, and the kid was scaring. HKPoliceTerrorists hkpolicebrutality

HongKong no longer enjoys freedom of assembly and speech. The CCP rips off every chance of dissenting from Hongkongers. Will you stand with HongKongers to deter the CCP's encroachments on the free world? StandWithHongKong

The national security law is not going to secure the safety of the people and there is no room for people to say no

This is HK today.😷😞😭

The truth is HK now HKPoliceState. Police use excessive unlawful force to disperse protesters, brutally beat arrested ppl, pepper spray & insult journalists, indiscriminate arrest of peaceful protesters. All are recorded & prove they aren't professional.
