字幕表 動画を再生する 英語字幕をプリント We've really seen an escalation in violence between both the protesters and the police over the past few days. At around 8am this morning a police officer shot a protester at close range in the stomach. The protester is now in a critical condition. We also saw a video go viral of a police officer on a motorbike ploughing into protesters this morning. And I think those two incidents combined with the death of a student on Friday brought a lot of office workers out onto the streets today during their lunch break. We saw riot police fire multiple rounds of tear gas in central Hong Kong at people in office shirts. It was really extraordinary to walk around central Hong Kong today at lunchtime and speak to professionals and office workers who were either on the front line... I spoke to one accountant. He said for the first time today he decided to join the front line in his lunch break. He said previously he was a moderate protester but because of what happened on Friday with the first death and how angry he is at the current situation he felt like he needed to step up today. He told me he was petrified of being arrested and of the possible consequences. And we also saw a lot of office workers loitering by the front line, expressing support, chanting slogans. So there seems to be a lot of anger right now amongst not only the more radical front-line protesters, but also moderate working professionals in Hong Kong. So what's going to happen next is we're expecting further escalation of violence between the police and the protesters. Hong Kong's chief executive, Carrie Lam, just held a press conference where she labelled the protesters the enemy of the people. It's important to bear in mind that she currently has the lowest approval ratings of any chief executive in the history of Hong Kong. And the latest polling shows that the vast majority of Hong Kongers overwhelmingly blame her, the police, and the Chinese central government for the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong. That doesn't bode well for the violence de-escalating in Hong Kong. We're seeing a very hard-line stance from mainland China. Over the weekend, the central government released a statement saying that the chief executive of Hong Kong and judges and other people who work for the Hong Kong government all need to be, quote, unquote, "patriots." And they also said there needs to be implementation of Article 23, which are anti-sedition laws in Hong Kong, which when previously floated saw enormous protests on the streets of Hong Kong in 2003.
