    > At popular countdown spots such as the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront and Times Square, protesters, rather than revellers, gathered and interspersed their new year countdown with common protest slogans.

    > Riot police stopped and searched protesters and shoppers near the atrium of Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui and on the ground floor of Times Square in Causeway Bay, after dozens of people heeded the calls to stage "Shopping protests" in the two popular malls on Tuesday evening.

    > Over in Prince Edward metro station, police had fired pepper spray to disperse protesters who were there to commemorate the four-month anniversary of the August 31 incident, in which police went after radicals into train compartments and were later accused of attacking regular commuters.
