 In Hong Kong, during another protest, clashes between protesters and law enforcement officers again occurred. According to DW, tens of thousands of people attended a rally on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the Umbrella Revolution, which began in the fall of 2014, because of the intention of the Chinese authorities to hold elections for the head of the local administration. A peaceful demonstration took place in a park near the city parliament, where rallies also took place five years ago.
 However, some protesters blocked the street and started throwing bricks and Molotov cocktails toward law enforcement. The police in response used water cannons and tear gas against the crowd. Activists plan to continue the protests. In particular, demonstrations are planned for October 1, when a large military parade is to take place on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of China. As media reported earlier, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has been part of China since 1997. Hong Kong is guaranteed broad special rights, such as freedom of the press, assembly, and expression.
 Hong Kong protests began in June after authorities were about to allow extradition of offenders to China. The authorities abandoned their intentions, but the demonstrators demanded democratic reforms, universal suffrage, the resignation of Hong Kong administration head Kerry Lam, and opposition to tough police actions. Police officers repeatedly used tear gas and violence against protesters.
