The dramatic escape of the students from PolyU in Hong Kong

Videos circulating online show the dramatic escape of the protesters from PolyU.

Update – According to Hong Kong Free Press, Ip Kin-yuen, an education sector lawmaker, earlier cited police as saying that those under 18 inside the university would be free to go after recording their ID numbers and taking a photo— but the police reserved the right to arrest them later.

Police have issued an ultimatum to protesters they’ve now surrounded at the city’s Polytechnic University.

Protesters are attempting a daring escape through a bridge at Polytechnic University. Volunteers on motorbikes came in drives to drive them out.
