Hong Kong residents found themselves unable to commute on Tuesday, as anti-government protesters disrupted train services, blocking doors in trains, during the early morning rush hour.

Footage shows Hong Kong’s train station with crowds of stranded commuters who could not enter a packed train.

Despite the inconveniences, some of the commuters voiced their support of the protesters.

“I really have to thank the young people of Hong Kong, because they are very brave”, said passenger Iris Chan.

“I think they have done more than enough. They have sacrificed too much”, she added.

Protests in Hong Kong entered their eighth consecutive weekend on Saturday with tens of thousands of people flooding the streets to call for the full withdrawal of the proposed mainland China extradition bill and the resignation of Chief Executive Carrie Lam.
