‘Burn with us’: Long day of unrest as Hong Kong protests continue to spiral

A long day of unrest left several injured on Monday as protesters attempted to disrupt the morning commute as part of a plan to mobilise a mass general strike. They urged students to boycott classes, business owners to close shops and employees to skip work, in keeping with the city’s 24 weeks of civil resistance calling for democratic reform and accountability for the police handling of the ongoing crisis. One black-clad protester was shot by a police officer, whilst a man was set alight by demonstrators in Ma On Shan. Clashes and tear gas continued into the night. Click here for our full coverage.
