HK bailiffs start clearing remaining protest sites


12-11-2014 17:35 BJT

Hong Kong authorities have begun clearing the main protest camps in Central and Admiralty districts. In a media briefing on Thursday, police have once again ordered the protesters to leave the protest area.

The clearing began after bailiffs read out a court injunction ordering protesters to leave both sites. Workers in safety vests and helmets have been dismantling the barricades, using heavy equipment to cut through iron chains, and slicing through tightly wound plastic tape.

Prominent student leaders and some members of the Hong Kong SAR Legislative Council have said they'll refuse to leave the sites. The street occupations began on September 28th, blocking main roads and streets in Kowloon and Hong Kong island. The protests have also had a major impact on tourism in Hong Kong, as well as trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
