TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Hong Kong police on Sunday (April 26) dispersed more than 300 pro-democracy activists who had gathered at a shopping mall in the first group protest the special administrative region has seen since officials imposed a four-person limit on public gatherings, officially citing the pandemic.

The anti-government demonstration took place Sunday evening inside the Cityplaza mall in the Taikoo Shing residential area, with the protesters chanting protest slogans such as “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times!” and “Five demands, not one less.” One participant told reporters they were only “singing,” and another emphasized that the protest was very peaceful.
