Hong Kong airport was the latest focus of protests that began two months ago

Hong Kong airport was the latest focus of protests that began two months ago

The Royal Thai Consulate-General suggested that Thais due to board flights at the airport on Tuesday and today should consult their airlines for updates on the status of their flights and avoid protest-ridden areas at the airport if at all possible. This is not the Hong Kong I want to be in.

It said in a statement that people would be "restrained from attending or participating in any demonstration or protest.in the airport other than in the area designated by the Airport Authority". Moreover, underlying the protracted protests are more fundamental concerns about the lack of basic democratic rights in Hong Kong and the social crisis facing workers and youth in one of the most expensive cities in the world.

Police, wearing riot gear and brandishing truncheons later arrived at the airport, where they clashed with protesters.

Netizens on @lihkgofficial apologise for the inconvenience they caused yesterday at the Hong Kong airport.

However, it was unclear if the protesters, who have no public leaders and organise via social media, would return to the airport.

What began as a largely leaderless effort to block legislation allowing extraditions to mainland China has expanded into a list of demands including investigations into police tactics and a direct vote to replace Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam.

The video of a tourist from Turkey who was stuck in Hong Kong while in transit to Thailand is also circulating.

This video was also met with comments from netizens criticising the woman's reaction to the protests, calling her privileged and entitled.

President Donald Trump said reports from US intelligence agencies shows the Chinese government is moving troops to its border with Hong Kong.

China's state-run Global Times also postulated that the "People's Armed Police" are congregating near Hong Kong for "large-scale exercises" and claimed "the main guns of the APCs appear to have been removed from their turrets".

On Monday, as demonstrators shut down Hong Kong's airport, a Chinese official said Hong Kong had reached a "critical moment" and that protesters "have begun to show signs of terrorism".

Earlier, speaking to reporters in New Jersey, Trump said he hoped no one would be killed in the city's protests.

In a statement sent to CNN from Cathay Pacific's Corporate Affairs Department, the company said an officer was suspended from operating Flight CX216 on August 12, which flies from Manchester, England, to Hong Kong. "It really hurts me".
