Police Move to Clear Protesters at University: Hong Kong Update -

Police Move to Clear Protesters at University: Hong Kong Update(Bloomberg) -- Hong Kong police moved to clear protesters at a university in Kowloon after a weekend standoff, leading to dramatic scenes with smoke billowing from multiple fires at the campus as the work week kicked off.Police said Monday morning that they were conducting a dispersal operation at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and disputed news reports that they had “raided” the campus. Earlier they had said live ammunition may be used in clearing the site, where an unknown number of protesters have been holed up for several days. The university said that activists had damaged laboratories and taken “dangerous chemicals.”The chaotic scenes came as Hong Kong braced for yet more disruption after protests left the city paralyzed much of last week. Demonstrations seeking greater democracy in the Beijing-controlled territory have become increasingly violent in recent weeks, with protesters vandalizing transportation networks and China-friendly businesses as they push for demands including an independent inquiry into police violence and the ability to nominate and elect the city’s leaders.Key Developments:Protesters holed up at PolyU in standoff, smoke billowing from campusPolice threaten live fire if attackedCross-Harbour Tunnel closed to start work weekHere’s the latest:No room for compromise, People’s Daily says (7:32 a.m.)There’s no middle ground or room for compromise on issues related to Hong Kong’s future and sovereignty, the People’s Daily said in a front-page commentary. The official Communist Party publication said the unrest shows that it’s necessary and urgent to improve Hong Kong’s governance system, adding that China won’t allow anyone to challenge the “One China” policy.Cross-Harbour Tunnel closed (7:18 a.m.)The Cross-Harbour Tunnel, a main artery linking Kowloon with Hong Kong Island, was closed as the Monday morning commute began due to damage to the administration building and toll booths, the Transport Department said.Police deny ‘raid’ on university (6:56 a.m.)In a statement, police said they were conducting a dispersal operation but disputed news reports that they had “raided” the campus. Tear gas was being fired outside the university and fire could be seen in some of the live media feeds. Earlier, a water cannon was used to disperse hundreds of protesters dug in at the school.Police reportedly enter PolyU (5:30 a.m.)Hong Kong police moved to disperse protesters at a university in Kowloon after a weekend standoff, multiple reports said, leading to what appeared to be intense clashes as multiple fires burned. Television images showed bursts of flames and loud bangs.Students appeal for help (1:01 a.m.)Owan Li, a student representative at PolyU, told reporters earlier Monday morning that he didn’t know how many people were still in the school, and made a plea to avoid bloodshed.“We hope to use this opportunity to tell the Hong Kong people that we need the help from all our friends,” he said. “I really hope that there will be a solution” for the students and staff to leave the campus safely.Police warn of live fire (11:55 p.m.)In a briefing, police warned they could use live ammunition if they face attacks while dispersing students at PolyU. Police also said an officer had fired three live rounds earlier in the evening after protesters surrounded an ambulance escorting an injured demonstrator who had been arrested. None of the bullets hit anyone, police said.PolyU calls on students, staff to leave immediately (8:33 p.m.)University officials called on students and staff to leave campus as soon as possible in order to avoid bloodshed. A letter signed by more than a dozen senior university officials said the school had been “severely and extensively vandalized” and called on activists to avoid violence.“The unlawful activities and acts of violence inside the campus and in its vicinity have been escalating, including damage to a number of laboratories on campus with the dangerous chemicals inside being taken away,” it said.\--With assistance from Stanley James.To contact the reporters on this story: Natalie Lung in Hong Kong at flung6@bloomberg.net;Moxy Ying in Hong Kong at yying13@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at bscott66@bloomberg.net, Daniel Ten Kate, Linus ChuaFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
