kong to talk us through what's been happening there jamaica well elizabeth the situation was quite calm about 2 hours ago about 300001000 protesters gathered to march from the sports complex of shing shooting to the station there were about 50 police officers who were positioned to manned the perimeters of the barricades and about an hour and a half ago the tension basically erupted when some of the bulldozers accused a few police officers of spraying pepper spray on them and that's when the situation basically escalated the police who were manning at that particular area were quickly outnumbered they were pushed back to the police station they sent back riot police who then also struggled to basically hold their positions and contain it would seem bottles of water thrown at police and protesters we've seen.
what at this point really the situation us calmed * down the bit shortly after the riot police left about an hour ago they came back to rescue a few police officers who are stuck so what we're seeing basically is a kind of unrest that has been happening here sporadically over the past month. and this is not the only protest in hong kong taking place today but would it be fair to say that this has been the largest the where we've seen the most action. while it is clearly over the past few days you know on. the last few days we've been monitoring the situation in hong kong there was no major protest but there are different forms of protest happening in different parts of hong kong number one there is this what they call the john lennon walls that have sprung up in almost every single district in hong kong where people who are unable to join the protests write messages of support and hope for those who take to the streets and the calls
for resignation for carry lamps government we've seen that we've seen memorials for those who have died over the past month but what this essentially we're seeing here is that there's been no shortage of zeal or anger from protesters many of them young people who have basically been pushing been pushing back beyond police barricades and this fight efforts basically by the hong kong government to pacify them to contain the situation the message here is quite clear that they are not accepting what's been offered to them but basically what they told us earlier what they want to do is to try to protect their hong kong's way of life they said the rule of law here is being undermined they want the police to push back they said they want accountability transparency and justice elisabetta community thank you very much for that. live in hong kong thank you. even on to other news now al shabaab fighters in somalia say they attacked
