The thirteen-week protest among demonstrators in Hong Kong has continued to escalate and has seemingly turned into a war between the protestors and the police, according to the Insider. The citizens of Hong Kong were out in great numbers to show their disdain for the proposed extradition bill by mainland China that was tabled temporarily. The protests have grown in the thousands and led to the police banning any activity of protest on the streets of Hong Kong.
Ignoring the ban, protestors remained on the streets while throwing objects at the police officers and setting fires to barricades. In response to the rebellion, the police sprayed the protestors with water cannons filled with blue dye in an effort to later identify the individuals who are to be arrested. A report emerged earlier this week that Beijing still refuses to scrap the extradition bill which sparked the protests thirteen weeks ago.
