The Duran Quick Take: Episode 376.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the protests in Hong Kong, and the stand-off inside a Hong Kong university campus which has led to clashes, as protesters tried to repel a police advance.
Large fires broke out at entrances to the Polytechnic University (PolyU), where protesters hurled petrol bombs and shot arrows from behind barricades.Chinese police warned they may use live ammunition if protesters did not stop firing improvised weapons.
On Wednesday, China’s foreign ministry criticized the U.S. after the Senate unanimously passed a bill supporting the protesters in Hong Kong. The “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act” interferes in China’s domestic affairs, said foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang, according to an online statement in Chinese.
