Chaotic Parallel Trading Protests in Hong Kong

Hong Kong


Hong Kong: Two people were arrested on Sunday, including a man who tried to jump off a footbridge “out of panic”, in relation to anti-parallel trader protests in Hong Kong, the media reported. The arrests took place following a major rally that took place in Sheung Shui area on Saturday against tourists from mainland China and parallel traders, those who source consumer goods in Hong Kong for sale across the border, the South China Morning Post. The rally finished peacefully but later descended into clashes including an hour-long standoff between police and protesters. About 30,000 people took part in the main rally itself, according to the organisers, while the police estimate was about 4,000. (IANS)
