Beijing loyalists demand FCC get out of Hong KongLocal | 14 Aug 2018 1:24 pm
About 50 Beijing loyalists rallied outside the colonial-era Foreign Correspondents Club building in Central today, where parts of the narrow pavement were sealed off with metal barricades, Reuters report.
Some protesters waved China flags and held up banners reading, "Conspiracy to split HK from China,'' while others shouted, "Oppose independence" and "FCC, get out of Hong Kong."
"We must get rid of the FCC. We hope the Hong Kong
government ends its lease," said Jimmy Tso of a group called Together Heart Protect Hong Kong.
Tso, who was wearing a black cap and a black T-shirt with a China flag, said the issue of independence crossed a "red line.''
