It is two weeks since Carrie Lam, leader of the city of Chinese Control, came into force on colonial era emergency laws that prevented face masks, hoping to refuse objections. Instead, the city has built some of the most severe unrest to date.

Although the last few days were relatively calm, and protesters were staying out of the streets, brutally honored the human right actor Jimmy Sham on Wednesday.

Friday's police refused a license application for the march, which means it will be an illegal rally. Thousands of people have feared the police in previous mass rallies and staged, often initially but going towards violence at night.

“We will not go back even after the attack on the First Commander of Human Rights, Jimmy Sham. Our most powerful force is unity and the resistance of this civil society, ”said the right group, asking the public to rally on Sunday.

Pro-democracy protesters claimed human chain 40 km (25 miles) outside metro stations on Friday night, asking people to wear masks against the ban.

There are four months of protests made by Hong Kong, and they are concerned about Beijing's erosion of freedoms granted when Britain brought the city back to China in 1997.

China denied the accusation, adding an exciting nation to foreign nations such as the United States and Britain.

The crisis in Russia is the worst since it was transferred and the biggest challenge is the Chinese President Xi Jinping since he took over power. Xi has warned that he would make any effort to share China.

Police and riot protesters have fought street battles, and police are releasing friction gases, rubber bullets and occasionally holding rounds against brick and petrol bottling agents.

Two people have been shot and injured by police and injured thousands. More than 2,300 people have been arrested by the police since June, many teenagers were as young as 12.

Many residents in Hong Kong are angry with what they believe is an excessive force used by the police.

Stephen Lo, Hong Kong Police Commissioner, said on Friday that his force had an unprecedented challenge.

“Our hearts are heavy; our responsibilities are enormous. I am still very strong in my conviction that we could weather the weather and restore the law and order to our city, ”he said to a previous officials' ceremony.

Hong Kong's Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam refused to agree with 5 protesters: universal vote, independent police conduct inquiry, amnesty to those charged, stopping protesters as anomalists, and Chinese extradition bill formally withdraw.

The most recent move to erode these freedoms was thought to be the extradition bill, which would allow Hong Kong residents to trial courts under the control of a Communist Party, and encouraged unrest. Lam said that the bill is now dead, but has not been formally withdrawn.

The economic downturn has resulted from the Asian financial hub as a result of the unrest caused by tourism and retail damage.

Hardcore protesters have metro stations of the city and Chinese banks and scores of shops they believe to connect to mainland China to criticize. Many businesses were forced to close.

Frank Chan, Transport and Housing Secretary, said six weeks before the metro would be fully operational on Friday.

“It all depends on whether damage is coming in. If everything remains normal and there is no other attack or damage, I would say that there may be a week or two as the target, ”he said.
