There are videos and photos being circulated on the social media showing the brutality of the Hong Kong Police. The protests were held in the town of Sheung Shui against the mainland Chinese for allegedly littering the neighborhood and disrupting the economy. The police have managed to disperse the demonstrators but the videos are going viral on social media.

Hong Kong Free Press shared a photo of a reporter injured by a police baton.

There is another post being circulated that shows the brutality.

There is another post about a female protestor pushed on the ground by the police.

Last week nearly 2,000 people marched in the Tuen Mun residential district to protest against what they saw as the nuisance of brash singing and dancing to Mandarin pop songs by middle-aged mainland women. On Sunday, tens of thousands marched in one of Kowloon's most popular tourist shopping areas, trying to persuade mainland Chinese tourists to back opposition to the extradition bill.

Anti-extradition protesters plan another demonstration on Sunday in the town of Sha Tin, in the so-called New Territoriesbetween Hong Kong island and the border with China.
