Clashes erupted once again between Hong Kong police and pro-democracy protesters – many of whom called on US President Donald Trump to help bring democracy to the Chinese-ruled city.

While the protest was largely peaceful, some activists constructed barricades, smashed windows, set objects on fire, and vandalized the MTR metro station in the Central district – home to banks, jewelry shops and high-fashion shopping arcades. They were met with a sharp response from police.

Crowds dispersed from the Central business district moved on to the nearby Admiralty bar district of Wan Chai, and then on to Causeway Bay in what Reuters describes as a “now familiar pattern of cat-and-mouse clashes” over the past three months of unrest.

“We can’t leave because there are riot police,” said 20-year-old ‘Oscar’ in Causeway Bay. “They fired tear gas from the station. We are heading to North Point,” located to the east.

Thousands of protesters earlier sang the Star Spangled Banner and called on U.S. President Donald Trump to “liberate” the city. They waved the Stars and Stripes and placards demanding democracy.

“Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong,” they shouted before handing over petitions at the U.S. Consulate. “Resist Beijing, liberate Hong Kong.” -Reuters
