The police threatened to use lethal force if anti-government protesters at Hong Kong’s PolyU didn’t surrender. “It was the scariest moment,” a protester told #TheWeeklyNYT. “We were trapped.” Watch the confrontation now on @hulu.
Watch video from behind the front lines of the Hong Kong protests, where the police crackdown led to a fiery standoff at the @hongkongpolyu campus last year. #TheWeeklyNYT
During the siege of PolyU, the Hong Kong police blocked the protesters’ escape routes. #TheWeeklyNYT talks to the students who were trapped inside the university walls.
Student protesters used pseudonyms and hid their faces behind masks to avoid being identified by the police and charged with rioting, which carries a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. One of the front line protesters at PolyU who goes by the initial “N” agreed to speak to #TheWeeklyNYT about his role in the protests only if we agreed to maintain his anonymity. He said he escaped the siege by rappelling off a campus bridge and fleeing on the back of a motorcycle. Credit: Andréa Schmidt
