The 306-day-old Occupy Hong Kong protest in the street-lecvel plazae under HSBC's Asia headquarters was shut down on Tuesday after police forcibly removed dozens of protesters and seized their tents and other possessions.
A GROUP of anti-capitalist protesters engaged in a protest beneath the HSBC headquarters in Hong Kong have held their ground since October 2011 and look hell bent on having their way. Though police have managed to drive out some of the protestors, but they have been unable to remove the reluctant ones.
These protesters had to face severe disappointment last month when the court approved of the eviction, as the protesters were not able to provide a good enough reason to live in that premises, according to radioaustralia. The police are also said to have arrested two protesters, as they assaulted the policemen during the process of eviction.
In this AFP video, one can see the number of protesters who are inside the premises and are shouting slogans and beating drums. They do not want to be taken out of the premises so they are seen huddling with one another holding their arms. This has posed problems for the police to drive them out.
The highlight of the video is the sole protester who was carried away by five to six policemen when he was sitting on a couch. This Occupy Movement had only started last year in the New York's Zuccotti Park and spread to other parts of the world gradually. The protesters started their camp a month after Occupy Wall Street began its protest last September 17.
