Unwilling to continue west towards where a large police presence has gathered outside the Chinese government’s offices, protesters in central Hong Kong are currently marching in a loop.
By banning a planned march, police have left the protesters without a clear direction or destination, resulting in many people setting out by themselves — and disrupting more roads in the process.
A group of three young protesters said they started in Southern Playground in Wan Chai, then marched to Central, and now are walking back.
“Sai Ying Pun is blocked and we heard police are blocking all the roads, and some protesters are occupying Causeway Bay but we just follow others,” one told CNN. “We see that some are going back to Wan Chai and Causeway Bay. Heard protesters are even in North Point and Fortress Hill but we are not sure.”
