Local | 20 Oct 2019 3:55 pm

Kowloon is paralyzed once more as tens of thousands protesters against the anti-mask law marched from Tsim Sha Tsui to Tai Kok Tsui.
They have deviated from the plan by Civil Human Rights Front to march to the West Kowloon express rail station, and marched along Nathan Road towards the north instead.

The rally was banned by police and did not secure a letter of no objection. However, four members of the pro-democracy camp including Leung Kwok-hung, Figo Chan Ho-wun, Cyd Ho Sau-lan and Albert Ho Chun-yan called upon the public to march on according to the objected application route: from Salisbury Garden to West Kowloon express rail station.
Police has urged the public to stop illegal assembly half an hour after the rally started at 1.30pm in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Tear gas was fired outside TST police station at 3.16pm. Petrol bombs were thrown at multiple MTR stations, while a fire was set outside Tsim Sha Tsui police station at 3.50pm.
Traffic lights along the way were also destroyed.
