Hong Kong protesters lose appeal against face mask ban

The ban, brought in by embattled chief executive Carrie Lam under emergency powers on Friday, came into effect at midnight on Saturday but has had little effect so far.

Activists, many wearing masks, took to the streets in their thousands after it was announced and Friday saw another night of violence and chaos.An anti-government protester wears a mask made with a FedEx envelope during a demonstration in Hong Kong, China Authorities closed the territory's entire subway network after stations were attacked as protesters set fires, attacked Chinese-owned businesses and fought running battles with police.

A 14-year-old boy was shot in the leg by police, the second teenage protester to be shot by officers in a week.A group of pro-democracy politicians filed a legal challenge against the government's use of the law, which says a facial covering is illegal if it prevents someone at an"unlawful assembly" or"public procession" being identified.

Does anyone know why they are still protesting?.

Last mnth a Palestinian woman was shot in the arm by IDF and bled to death in the st 🤷‍♀️ This move is totally legit and right, only a bit late, she should've done this sooner
