An organized group of thugs attacked protesters, residents and unfortunates with bamboo sticks


A mob dressed in white assaulted residents, protesters, journalists and a lawmaker in Yuen Long, hours after an anti-extradition law march ended.

At least 36 people had been sent to a hospital or had sought treatment, according to the Hospital Authority.


The organized group used bamboo sticks and other weapons to attack people in the West Rail Line station area, also injuring a representative of the democratic party Lam Cheuk-ting.

The protesters accused the police of not intervening to stop the attackers and instead used tear gas against the protesters in Sheung Wan.


“Real thugs have attacked passersby, a journalist and a lawmaker, badly injuring them, but the police have failed to enforce the law. This has angered us greatly,” the statement read.

While the protesters in Wan Chai, Central and Sheung Wan were facing the police in riot gear, at about 10:30 pm, the attackers headed for the trains, assaulting passengers with bamboo sticks and chasing whoever was wearing black clothes, witnesses said.
