this is d.w. news live from berlin pro-democracy protests in hong kong violence again clashes break out at a mall when probate jean activists face off with the protesters it's the latest confrontation and months of frequently violent demonstrations also coming up. african leaders join tens of thousands of supporters for the state funeral. was longtime leader died last week at the age of 95 he was about was 1st president after white minority rule but also presided over a deep crisis in the economy and society.
thanks for joining us a pro-democracy protest in hong kong has been disrupted by counter-demonstrators waving chinese flags sittin at a shopping mall turned violent when probe aging activists confronted the demonstrators as in its 4th month of pro-democracy demonstrations they were initially launched to oppose a controversial extradition bill but have since widened to demand free elections and the semi autonomous chinese territory. i'm breathless used the symbols of passive resistance in the democracy protests of 2014 turning into weapons here. hours before these scenes occurred some 200 pro beijing protesters gathered at a mall in the cow loon district. to show their support for the chinese government.
but the situation escalated when pro-democracy protesters showed up. this woman is shouting hong kong belongs to china. police tried to end the fight but soon a larger presence was needed. democracy protesters accusing the police of taking sides clamping down hard on them and arresting more of their people. the day was also marked by a peaceful sit down protest by several 100 high school students. i am i shall see though you know they tell us i have known students who has been kicked out from home by the terrence more than twice due to different political views and their families i. find it a case of all that all they think are you i think we shouldn't cheer and celebrate now. we should continue to fight for our 5 to mung us. we need to fight for
all of them not one less than 3 the whites you know my you see. pro-democracy protesters who are planning to stage larger protests on sunday. but incidents like this show how quickly even small gatherings can turn into something bigger. if you have your correspondent sherry chan joins us now from hong kong gerry you were also at that shopping mall where violence erupted what did you see that was the latest. so i'm usually in this city in protests in shopping malls they usually go free peacefully if people are just saying song says shout their protest locums but then today there is a group of chinese beijing supporters who also spawned these shopping mall and they were carrying chinese flags and they started singing the national anthem. and so
choros broke out between the 2 sides then. the pro-democracy protesters have complained that police were treating them more harshly then the protests from the probate jink around what did it look like to you. so at least from what i've seen there were no probating supporters there were none of them being arrested but i've seen 2 pro-democracy protesters being arrested by the police even though both sides they are quite aggressive and foul and sometimes and so this claim is also justifiable from pro-democracy protesters and it's also actually heightened the tension between the protesters and the police because they think that the police really is really siding with probating group. tomorrow there is another major demonstration planned in hong kong tell us more.
so tomorrow these protests actually banned by the police but then. in the past several days you can hear a lot of protests is already saying that they will go anyway and they are also calling for more people to come out and actually. who is trying to apply for the permit to go on to have this rally tomorrow and they were the organizer who organized the demonstrations with 1000000 people and 2000000 people will came out in the past month and so it's expected that. this rally would have a very big turned out but then of calls the fact that the police is meeting this rally would make them easier to make arrest as so as long as they see people gathered together they already have. to rest and people so. we can expect that some confrontation saying conflicts my. cherry chalk boards and
