Masked Protesters in Hong Kong protest for the Expected Mask Ban


Protesters on Friday marched in Central Hong Kong ahead of a scheduled ban on wearing facemasks. There were thousands of people, all wearing masks and chanting slogans calling for greater democracy while they marched into the city’s business district. The protestors chanted “I want to wear face masks” and “Wearing mask is not a crime”.

The ban, which was planned before, ignited widespread violence in the city on Tuesday and also spoiled China’s National Day. It also lead to a police officer shooting a protester making it the first victim of gunfire ever since the protest started in June. The teenager who was wounded was charged with rioting and attacking police.


The development has since snowballed into an enemy of China crusade in the midst of indignation regarding what many view as Beijing’s impedance in Hong Kong’s self-governance. In excess of 1,750 individuals have been kept up until this point.

Activists and numerous administrators have cautioned the facemask boycott could be counter-gainful, unreasonable and hard to uphold in a city rising with resentment and where several thousands have frequently challenged police bans on assemblies to take to the road.
