Hong Kong protesters march near border to target traders from China

HONG KONG : Thousands of Hong Kong people marched on Saturday to protest against mainland Chinese traders in a town near the border, tapping into anger behind huge demonstrations against an extradition bill to highlight another problem they see as having been mismanaged.

The demonstration in the town of Sheung Shui, not far from the Chinese city of Shenzhen, started peacefully but devolved into scuffles and shouting, with police firing pepper spray at protesters who threw umbrellas and hard hats back.

The protest is the latest in a string of demonstrations that has roiled the former British colony for more than a month, fuelling its biggest political crisis since China regained control in 1997.

Sometimes violent street protests have drawn in millions, with hundreds even storming the legislature on July 1 to oppose the now-suspended extradition bill that would have allowed criminal suspects in Hong Kong to be sent to China to face trial.
