Protesters have vowed to march in Yuen Long on Sunday to protest the violence. Some of the attackers were wearing face masksand white shirts and armed with wooden poles and steel rods swinging them indiscriminately at any people who were just trying to head home after a busy day.  They went down to the Yuen Long station just before midnight, apparently targeting pro-democracy protester but hitting even the passers by.

Filipinos are also advised to be alert and vigilant against false news about what is happening in Hong Kong.

Thugs suspected of belonging to triad groups beat up protesters during Hong Kong’s 2014 Occupy Central demonstrations, and in an earlier era, they helped 1989 Tiananmen Square activists flee mainland China — all for a price.
