Airport protester says no trust in copsLocal | 12 Aug 2019 8:20 pm
At the Hong Kong Interantional Airport sit-in today, a flight attendant protesting on his day off, who gave only his surname, Lau, to avoid repercussions from his employer, said heavy-handed police tactics had alienated some people.
“The police have told a lot of lies to Hong Kong people. We cannot believe them anymore. We have to come here to protest,” Lau said. China has reportedly threatened to bar air crew who take part in protests from its air space.
Another protester, who identified herself only as Bea, said she took the day off from work to express her outrage.
“I feel that I have to do something. ... It’s just too sad to see what has happened. The police action has gone totally nonsensical,” she said.-AP
