【新唐人2014年11月27日讯】香港“雨伞行动”持续两个月,美国《华尔街日报》引述消息人士指出,北京当局正在考虑不同方案,以回应香港民众对特首普选问题的不满。不过,也有人认为,从这两天的警方清场的行为来看,北京的态度似乎没什么改变。香港警方在清场行动使用警棍、胡椒喷雾和新型催泪剂,超过以往,甚至发生有新闻工作者被多名警察压倒在地。

11月26号早上,在香港旺角出现一大批戴着红帽的人,声称协助原诉人清理障碍物。在场的民众质疑这群人是否得到有关单位允许,为此双方发生激烈口角。

学生领袖黄之锋:“我们希望他们(法警)可以解释。今天无缘无故,一群戴着红帽,看来是蓝带支持者(亲北京的示威者)来到这里清理现场。他们凭什么来清理现场?如何能证实他们是来清场的工作人员?”

随后,大批防暴警察介入,与现场民众发生多次推撞,一些抗议者被制伏带走。包括一直站在前排的学联副秘书长岑敖晖、学民思潮召集人黄之锋及和中文大学学生会外务秘书司徒子朗等人被拘捕。

法院执达主任与原诉人律师等人员在旺角弥敦道口宣读禁制令之后,警方开始清除路障。从画面中可以看到,警方在拆除路障时,也驱赶了现场的采访记者。

而在前一天,也就是11月25号,警方动员六千警力进驻旺角占领区位于弥敦道、砵兰街间的亚皆老街路段清场,与不愿离去的留守民众爆发冲突,警方动武压制、逮捕抗争者。

学联常委梁丽帼:“我们提出到底控罪是什么的时候,这个关系到我们到底是违反禁制令,还是警方纯粹是执行公安条例,警方绝对要解释清楚给现场人士知道他们可能要负担的刑责。”

香港立法会议员梁国雄:“今日警方到底在哪个时候接到申请禁制令的那班人要求你们来执法,我觉得警方需要交待,是不是。”

现场:“解释、解释。”

现场有市民举标语抗议,及高举“我要真普选”横幅。

现场:“我要真普选、梁振英下台!”

清场行动一直持续到晚间,期间一度使用警棍、胡椒喷雾和新型催泪水枪,驱散抗争的民众。

据了解,催泪水枪射程超过10公尺,水压强劲,威力更胜于胡椒喷雾,一般眼罩无法抵挡,眼睛被喷中会感到灼热刺痛。一名遭催泪水枪攻击的示威者告诉媒体,“我不能张开眼睛了。我穿着长袖,但手臂仍然受伤。”

香港立法委员陈伟业也出现在抗争人群之中。

香港立法委员陈伟业:“抗争民众十分平和,根本没有使用任何暴力,只是站在线外与警察对峙。但是警察却使用胡椒喷雾和新的催泪剂,今天很多人都受伤了。”

入夜以后,战场由弥敦道转往砵兰街,警方与抗争民众再次爆发冲突,截止到26号早上6点,警方一共逮捕至少116名示威者,包括香港立法会议员“长毛”梁国雄。

而在这次清场过程中,香港now新闻台一名工程人员在协助记者采访时,遭到多名警察压制在地,这一过程被now的镜头拍下。据now新闻台报导,尽管记者一再表明他是记者正在直播新闻,但警察不理会,并执意将记者驱赶到路边。

11月26号上午,香港记者协会发表声明,强烈谴责警方的拘捕行为,“事件严重践踏新闻自由,要求释放该名新闻工作者,并彻查事件及追究责任”。

对此,now新闻台也发声明表示,对警方的行动感到极度愤怒及遗憾,认为拘捕采访人员,严重侵犯新闻自由,并已安排律师协助涉事工程人员,“通过司法渠道取回公道”。

Police Clear Protests, Resulting In Many Injuries

Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement has lasted for two months.

Sources told Wall Street Journal that Beijing is weighing
options in response to the demand for universal suffrage
of Chief Executive of Hong Kong.

However, people suspect Beijing’s attitude has not changed,
as the police have cleared the protest sites.

The use of batons, pepper spray and new tear gas
was even more fierce than before.

A reporter was also pressed down on the ground
by the police.

On the morning of Nov. 26, a heated altercation took place
in Mong Kok when people wearing red caps claiming
to assist police in clearing the Mong Kok sites showed up
and their true identity questioned.

Student leader, Joshua Wong: “We hope they (bailiffs)
can explain.

Today, for no reason, a crowd wearing red caps appearing
to be Blue Ribbon supporters (pro-Beijing protesters)
are here to clear the site.

What gives them the power to clear the site?

How can you prove that they are the workers
who have the duty to clear the site?"

Subsequently, riot police intervened.

Following scuffles, the police arrested some protesters.

Among them were Deputy Secretary-General of Hong Kong
Federation of Students, Lester Shum, Scholarism convener
Joshua Wong, and Secretary of Student Union
of the Chinese University of Hong Kong Szeto Tzelong.

Police began to remove roadblocks after the court bailiffs
and plaintiff lawyers read the injunction in Nathan Street.

Reporters were also removed at the scene.

A day earlier, 6,000 police were mobilized to clear
the occupied sites around Argyle road.

Clashes took place when remaining protesters
refused to leave.

Police used force and arrested those who resisted.

Federation of Students, Yvonne Leung: “When we questioned
the charge, it is a matter of if we have violated the injunction
or if it is the police executed the Public Order Ordinance.

The police absolutely have to explain the legal liability
to everyone at the scene."

Hong Kong Legislative Council Leung Kwok-hung: “I believe
the police need to explain when the request to clear
the sites was received from the people who demanded
the injunction."

At the scene: “Explain, explain."

Protesters with banners that read, “I want real
universal suffrage."

At the scene: “I want real universal suffrage,
Leung Chun-ying to step down!"

The clearing lasted into the night with police using batons,
pepper spray and new tear gas to disperse protesters.

The new tear gas has firing range of ten meters, the high
water pressure is more powerful than pepper spray.

Ordinary goggles can’t resist the pressure; the pressure
can easily sting the eyes and cause burning pain.

A protester attacked by the tear gun told reporter,
“I can’t open my eyes anymore.

I have long sleeves, but my arms are hurt."

Hong Kong legislator Albert Chan also showed up
in the protest.

Legislator Albert Chan:"The protesters are very peaceful,
they didn’t use any violence at all.

They just stand in line to face the police.
But once the police use pepper spray or use the new material
(CS spray), you know, lots of people are hurt today."

After nightfall, the battlefield transferred from Nathan Street
to Portland Street, where police clashed with protesters again.

Until 6 a.m. on Nov. 26, police arrested at least 116 protesters,
including the Hong Kong Legislative Council, Leung Kwok-hung.

In this clearance process, a NowTV technician was pressed
down on the ground by the police in the process of assisting
the report.

The entire process was filmed.

NowTV said that the journalist had repeatedly explained
that they were conducting live broadcast.
Police ignored the claim and insisted to drive the journalist
to the roadside.

On the morning of Nov. 26, the Hong Kong Journalists
Association issued a statement to strongly condemn
the arrest of a TV crew member by the police.

“The incident is a serious violation of press freedom.

Demand the release of the journalist and a thorough
investigation of the incident and hold those
who are accountable," said the statement.

Now TV also issued a statement to express the outrage
and regret of the arrest which is believed to have seriously
violated press freedom.

Lawyers are arranging to assist in seeking justice
for the arrested technician.
