  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.sbs.com.au/news/petrol-bombs-thrown-in-hong-kong-metro) reduced by 78%. (I’m a bot)

    > Petrol bombs were thrown inside a Hong Kong metro station on Saturday but no one was injured as pro-democracy protesters again took to the streets angry at what they believe is Beijing's tightening grip on the city.

    > Hong Kong's metro has borne the brunt of protests, with stations torched and trashed, and only returned to normal operations on Friday after being completely shut down.

    > Hong Kong had experienced relative calm since last weekend when a peaceful march by tens of thousands spiralled into a night of running battles between protesters and police.

  2. Protesters forced the shut down of MTR, which protesters and most HK residents rely on for transportation and mobilization, sounds like a smart strategy, lol.

  3. The truth on the ground is very much at odds with the narrative that’s being told on reddit.

    When you see the violence that the protestors are committing, it’s no surprise that they now have a policy against face masks.

    The person who took the videos below originally wanted to capture police brutality towards the protestors. In the end, he was only able to capture rioters committing acts of violence.
