Hong Kong protesters target mainland Chinese traders

Hong Kong, Jul 13 (AP) Several thousand people are marching in Hong Kong against traders from mainland China in what is fast becoming a summer of unrest in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory. Saturday's march passed by temporarily shuttered pharmacies and cosmetic shops that are popular with Chinese tourists and traders who bring goods back to sell in the mainland.

Huge demonstrations in the past month against a proposal to change extradition laws are reawakening other movements in the city. Thousands marched last weekend against middle-aged mainland women who sing and dance somewhat provocatively in a public park, receiving tips from older men.

The protests have a common refrain: Hong Kong's government is not addressing citizen concerns. The city's leader, Carrie Lam, has pledged to listen to the people, but many protesters want her to resign. (AP) SCY
