Hong Kong Protests Turn City Into ‘Ghost Town’ With Shopping Centres, Restaurants Shut, As MTR Network Crippled Amid Major National Day Unrest

Retail stores and restaurants closed in anticipation of a citywide anti-government protests on National Day in Hong Kong. Major thoroughfares in shopping, residential, and tourist sections of Hong Kong have been affected to the point the city looked like a ghost town.

 

Excerpt:

Speaking shortly before Causeway Bay MTR closed at 11am, one passenger said: “It’s like a ghost town.”

The district’s key thoroughfares such as Hennessy Road were occupied by protesters calling on the Hong Kong government to meet the remaining demands of the movement sparked by the now-withdrawn extradition bill, which include setting up an independent inquiry into police conduct.
