Video: The Wonderful World of Sham Shui Po

A video of Monday’s clashes in Sham Shui Po, juxtaposed with Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World, has been shared anonymously to YouTube. The slow-motion clip shows protesters retreating from riot police as they shoot tear gas in the Kowloon neighbourhood.

Protesters fled south on Nathan Road during a day of city-wide strikes, wildcat anti-government protests and unrest.
