At least one pro-democracy protester was shot by police at close-range Monday, with another counter-demonstrator “set on fire” as Hong Kong authorities attempt to crack-down on the escalating violence sweeping the region.

“A pro-democracy protester was shot at close range and a counterprotester was set on fire as violence continued to engulf Hong Kong on Monday morning, with the disturbing images of street fights and escalating attacks from both sides drowning out an appeal by the city’s embattled leader for an end to demonstrations,” reports Fox News.

“Carrie Lam, the pro-China chief executive of Hong Kong, laid the blame for the ongoing demonstrations deteriorating into chaos squarely at the feet of the pro-democracy protesters, who she labeled ‘rioters.’ But videos emerging from the autonomous Chinese territory showed the mayhem being instigated from all angles,” adds Fox.

“If there’s still any wishful thinking that by escalating violence, the Hong Kong [special administrative region of China] government will yield to pressure, to satisfy the so-called political demands, I’m making this statement clear and loud here: that will not happen,” said Lam.

HONG KONG CHAOS: Police Shoot into Crowd of Pro-Democracy Protesters with Live Ammunition

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.19

Hong Kong riot police fired a live-round of ammunition into a crowd of pro-Democracy protesters Tuesday as Beijing prepares to celebrate the 70th anniversary of their communist revolution.

“Hong Kong police shot a teenage protester at close range in the chest Tuesday, leaving him bleeding and howling on the ground, in a fearsome escalation of anti-government demonstrations that spread across the semi-autonomous Chinese territory. Tens of thousands marched in a day of rage as Communist leaders in Beijing celebrated 70 years in power,” reports the Associated Press.

“While officers have previously fired warning shots in the air on multiple occasions during months of protests in Hong Kong, this was the first time a protester is known to have been shot. There were other instances Tuesday when officers also drew their weapons, including two with bloodied faces who pointed pistols, as protesters and riot police fought fierce battles at multiple locations in the city on edge, with many determined to spoil the Oct. 1 anniversary of Communist rule,” adds the AP.

“They are squeezing our necks so we don’t breathe the air of freedom,” said one protester.
