Feb 29 marks the sixth month after the 831 Attack. Citizens gathered in Mongkok to pay tribute to the casualties, and protest against police brutality.
However, police’s violence escalated into indiscriminate use of weapons towards citizens.
At around 23:15 o’clock, one mid-age woman, apparently a passer-by, was pepper-sprayed in close range. She fell down, but riot police ran by ignoring her.
Reporters were pepper-sprayed as well- just as police’s usual “friendly” behavior towards the press.
From the photo above, it is clearly seen that the reporters were sprayed deliberately, even their cameras could not escape from that.
