Hundreds of protesters, including flight attendants, staged a sit-in at Hong Kong’s international airport terminal, in a bid to “educate” visitors about the unprecedented demonstrations triggered by a controversial bill.
The airport arrivals hall is usually filled with friends and relatives waiting to greet loved ones as they make their way out of one of the world’s busiest airports.
But on Friday visitors were greeted with protesters chanting anti-government slogans while holding banners and handing out flyers.
“There are no riots, there’s only tyranny!”, chanted the protesters, who were all dressed in black.
Hong Kong residents have been protesting for more than a month, calling for democratic reforms and the withdrawal of a controversial extradition Bill in the Chinese territory.
Their demands include direct elections, the dissolution of the current legislature and an investigation into alleged police brutality.
