Hong Kong, Sep 16: Hong Kong authorities reiterated the pertaining violence across the city was not a solution after protesters openly resisted a police ban to demonstrate on Sunday in a mass rally that turned into chaos, as the armed forces used water cannons and tear gas against protesters.

In an official statement on Sunday late, the government said violence would only cause destruction and harm to the community, insisting they were still making efforts to resolve the city’s issues, according to Al-Jazeera.

Tens of hundreds of individuals, dark-clad covered dissidents with their families and kids, marched calmly throughout two kilometers (1.2 miles) from the Causeway Bay shopping area to the main business locale, calling for democratic change.

Police had dismissed the protesters’ solicitation for a permit, yet the demonstrators were determined. A few dissidents later burnt out Chinese banners and vandalized metro stations.

Many of them focused on the administration office complex, tossing blocks and oil bombs through police obstructions. Police reacted by firing volleys of tear gas and splashing dissidents with chemical-bound water just as a blue fluid that assisted them to distinguish offenders.

Protests have plunged the city into its largest turmoil in decades with dissenters taking to the streets since the past three months against a controversial extradition bill that would allow suspects in Hong Kong to be sent to mainland China for court prosecution.
