Video: Toilet paper hurled at China Liaison Office in protest of Carrie Lam’s ‘appointment’

Hours after Carrie Lam was elected as chief executive by a small-circle committee on Sunday, several protesters migrated from a pro-democracy protest in Wan Chai to the China Liaison Office in San Wan.

They brought along toilet paper in reference to a gaffe Lam made early in her campaign. In January, she revealed that she was unable to buy toilet paper while moving into a new apartment. The protesters threw toilet rolls at the building simultaneously and slogans opposed to her “appointment.”

“I’m not inciting anyone, but if you throw it, you don’t throw it like this,” an organiser said, as he demonstrated how to throw the rolls in such a manner as to leave a trail of paper. “You have to hold it by the end and toss it.”

Protesters also burned unknown objects and stamped on a cardboard sign saying “Fuck you China Liaison office” which included a photo of Lam.
