Hong Kong police fire tear gas and arrest protesters

Police fired tear gas on Saturday to disperse protesters after thousands of them gathered in New Territories, Hong Kong.

The protesters originally planned to march from a park to local government office but were intercepted by riot police halfway.

Some protesters vandalised a nearby light rail station and police retaliated with tear gas.

The march happened on the same day when groups supporting mainland China pulled down some of the "Lennon Walls" of anti-government protest messages in the Chinese-ruled city.

The anti-government protesters are angry about what they see as creeping interference by Beijing in Hong Kong, which returned to China under a "one country, two systems" formula that ensures freedoms not enjoyed on the mainland.

At A Strained UN Security Council Meeting, China Ambassador Lets Fly At US

The United States appears to be getting on China's very last nerve. That is, if the remarks made by China's Ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday truly reflects Beijing's sentiments. According to CNN, at a tense meeting of the UN Security Council, Zhang Jun said Thursday that the US has 'created enough troubles for the world already.' Zhang Jun's comments was a retort to US Representative to the UN Kelly Craft, who accused China of hiding the virus's origin and minimizing its danger.

Protest against China slave camps, 'genocide' of Uyghurs outside UN office

A protest was organised against China outside the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland. The 3-day long demonstration, consisting of a photo exhibition, was organised by a group called the World Uyghur Congress. It was titled 'Made In China = Uyghur Forced Labour'. The protestors accused the Chinese government of forcing the Uyghurs, a Muslim minority group in the country's northwest Xinjiang province, into forced labour and even attempting a genocide. Beijing has allegedly been trying to stamp out the community's religious and cultural identity in order to assimilate it more fully into the majority Han Chinese community. Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uyghur Congress, sought international pressure on China to stop the Uyghurs' persecution and boycott by international companies to prevent forced labour.
