XF1 Protest Shot

The Chief Executive, CY Leung, has taken part in a meet-the-public forum at a Kwun Tong secondary school. It's the second in eight days and three democracy parties held a silent demonstration outside. A pro-government group, the Voice of Loving Hong Kong, also organised a counter-demonstration mobilising around 30 people to show its support for the CE.

The event was largely peaceful though there were some minor scuffles and five men and a woman were arrested for charges including common assault and sexual harassment. Police put the number of protesters at 1,100.

However, a strong police presence restricted protesters to narrow sections of pavement near the venue; an arrangement criticised by the chairman of the Labour Party, Lee Cheuk-yan. Some of the protesters waved colonial British Hong Kong flags, as well as Chinese nationalist and Tibetan flags as a presumed challenge to the Communist Party.
