Hong Kongs pro-democracy protests cause transport chaos with more than 100 flights cancelled today.

Flight cancelled :-Hong Kong: Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protesters are close to creating a “very dangerous situation”, the city’s leader warned Monday as train travel and international flights in the global financial hub were thrown into chaos.

Due to these reasons, train and flight has been canceled:-

  • On Monday morning followed two months of unprecedented and often violent unrest, fuelled by demands for greater democracy in the semi-autonomous Chinese city.
  • During morning rush hour some people stop the metro train.
  • Over the last 50 days, the government has been ignoring the demands of the people.
  • Some key roads were also blockaded.
  • As long as the government doesn’t respond then for sure the movement will escalate.

But people from all walks of life indicated plans online to either strike or phone in sick on Monday, from civil servants and social workers to bus drivers and even employees of the city’s Disneyland.

Alongside the strike, protesters planned to hold rallies in seven different parts of the city on Monday.

While some commuters were angered by the disruptions, others said they supported the action.

“As long as the government doesn’t respond then for sure the movement will escalate,” a civil servant, who gave his surname as Leung, told AFP as he tried to make his way to work.

China warnings

The protests were triggered by the opposition against a planned law that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.

It quickly evolved into a wider movement for democratic reform and a halt to eroding freedoms.

Even before Lam’s press conference, authorities in Hong Kong and Beijing had signaled a hardening stance to the protests.
