Chaos erupts at Hong Kong airport for second straight day


WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS, THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU, SANDRA.>>Bill: LIVE PICTURES AT THE AIRPORT IN HONG KONG. THIS IS A SCENE OF CHAOS FOR THE SECOND DAY NOW THE PROTESTERS HAVE TAKEN UP THEIR POSITIONS INSIDE ONE OF THE TERMINALS AND THE POLICE ARE RESPONDING WITH FORCE. LAST NIGHT AND AGAIN TODAY AS WE GET THE INFORMATION HERE. THE SECOND DAY NOW THE AIRPORT HAS ESSENTIALLY BEEN SHUTDOWN AND FLIGHTS DIVERTED. THE GOVERNMENT IN BEIJING CONCERNED ABOUT THE ONGOING PROTESTS IN HONG KONG ABOUT A MONTH’S TIME. IT INITIALLY BEGAN THE PROTEST AGAINST THE LAW THAT COULD HAVE BEEN INITIATED FOR PROSECUTION OUT OF HONG KONG BACK TO MAINLAND CHINA. IN WILL TELL YOU, THE ANALYSTS WILL TELL YOU IT’S A BIGGER DEAL. IT’S ABOUT THE AUTONOMY OF HONG KONG AND HOW THEY WANT TO REMAIN A SEPARATE SYSTEM AWAY FROM BEIJING.>>Sandra: TAKING THE IMAGES IT’S SOMETHING TO SEE IT HAPPENING AT THE HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. IT’S ONE OF THE BUSIEST IF NOT THE BUSIEST IN THE WORLD. HANDLES ABOUT 1100 FLIGHTS EVERY DAY TO 200 DESTINATIONS. YOU CAN’T EVEN CHECK TO SEE IF YOU’RE FLIGHT WILL TAKE OFF. IT’S THE SECOND STRAIGHT DAY OF THAT. YOU CAN SEE THE PROTESTS BUILDING THERE. THEY’RE BLOCKING POLICE BUS ARE OUTSIDE THE AIRPORT. WE HAVE POLICE IN RIOT GEAR. YOU CAN SEE VERY CLEARLY ON YOUR SCREEN, IT’S A DEVELOPING SITUATION THAT SEEMS TO BE GROWING BY THE DAY.>>Bill: THE COMPARISON GOES BACK TO 1989 AND TIANANMEN SQUARE AND THE REASON THAT’S BROUGHT UP IS BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT WILL REACT AND AT WHAT POINT DO THEY STEP ON THE GAS AND MAKE A MOVE AGAINST THE PROTESTERS. LATE LAST NIGHT THERE WAS VIDEO GOING OUTONLINE — OUT ONLINE AND IT WAS VIOLENT CLASHES AND POLICE TAKING PEOPLE, FOUR AND FIVE OFFICERS PER PROTESTER BEING RATHER AGGRESSIVE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT IF YOU WATCH THE VIDEO AND BACK AT IT AGAIN TODAY. THE WORD AT THE AIRPORT IS CHECK-IN SERVICES FOR DEPARTING FLIGHTS SUSPEND. OTHER DEPARTING FLIGHTS HAVE BEEN COMPLETE. IT’S A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FROM HONG KONG. FLIGHTS WERE ABLE TO DEPART AND LAND EARLIER TODAY. GREG PALKOT IS WATCHING THE STORY TO BRING US UPDATED ON WHAT WE THINK WE’RE DEALING WITH NOW, GREG. HELLO TO YOU IN LONDON.>>BILL, YEAH, WE’VE BEEN WATCHING AS YOU HAVE TOO FROM THE HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. IT LOOKS LIKE, GUYS, THE AUTHORITIES ARE SAYING ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AFTER FIVE DAYS OF PROTESTS THERE AT THE SCENE IN THE AIRPORT. YESTERDAY’S PROTEST BASICALLY SHUT THE HUGE INTERNATIONAL HUB DOWN AND WE’VE BEEN WATCHING IN THE PAST 25 MINUTES RIOT POLICE MOVING IN AND TRYING TO CLEAR AT LEAST SOME OF THE PROTESTERS AWAY FROM FIRST OF THE FRONT OF THE FER THE TERMINAL AND THEN GOING INSIDE. WE’VE WATCHED SOME TARGETED ARRESTS BEING MADE AND WATCHING CHAOS INSIDE. YESTERDAY THERE WAS ABOUT 5,000 PROTESTERS INSIDE. IT SEEMED LIKE THE NUMBER HAD BUILT UP AS WELL. YESTERDAY SOME 200 FLIGHTS WERE CANCELLED. TODAY AT LEAST 100 FLIGHTS WERE CANCELLED. THE RIOTERS ARE ACTIVISTS WHO HAVE BEEN BUSY THE PAST 10 WEEKS PROTESTING FOR MORE DEMOCRATIC REFORM AND THE TERRITORY BASICALLY RUN BY CHINA, A FORMER BRITISH COLONY. IT’S CALLED FOR A VARIETY OF MEASURES. IT STARTED WITH A DEMAND TO DROP A PLANNED EXTRADITION BILL. IT STARTED IN THE HUNDREDS AND THEN THOUSANDS AND BUILT TO SEVERAL MILLION A COUPLE TIMES WHEN WE WERE OUT IN HONG KONG WE SAW TENS OF THOUSANDS OUT IN THE STREET. NOW IT’S GOTTEN QUITE VIOLENT AND TARGETED. THE PROTESTERS, BILL, BASICALLY HAVE FOUND THE SOFT UNDERBELLY OF THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT AND THAT IS INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS STATUS. THEY BLOCKED HIGHWAYS. THEY BLOCKED BUSINESS AREAS BUT NOW THEY’RE GETTING TO THE AIRPORT WHICH IS ACTUALLY AT THE CORE OF THINGS. EARLIER, BILL, WE HEARD BEIJING BACKED HONG KONG CHIEF EXECUTIVE KERRY LAM. SHE RATCHETED UP HER RHETORIC SAYING IT’S A DANGEROUS SITUATION SHE IS SAYING AND THIS IS A QUOTE FROM HER, MORE VIOLENCE WILL PUSH HONG KONG DOWN A PATH OF NO RETURN AND THERE’S NO WORD ON ANY CONCESSIONS BEING MADE BY HER BY THE BEIJING BACKED AUTHORITIES WHICH IS WHAT ALL THE PROTESTERS ARE ABOUT. I THINK IT SHOULD BE NOTED ALSO WE HAVE SEEN IN THE LAST TWO DAYS PUT ON OFFICIAL CHINESE MEDIA SCENES, LINES OF ARMORED POLICE VEHICLES, ATCs OF WHAT IS CALLED THE PEOPLE’S LIBERATION POLICE. THIS IS BASICALLY RIOT POLICE BACKED BY THE PEOPLE’S LIBERATION ARMY, THAT IS THE CHINESE ARMY BEING STAGED OUTSIDE OF HONG KONG. ALSO THERE ARE BARRACKS FOR THE PLA INSIDE HONG KONG ITSELF. BUT WHAT WE’RE SEEING NOW IS RIOT POLICE MOVING INTO THE AND LOOKS LIKE AFTER A FIFTH DAY OF PROTEST, A SECOND DAY OF PROTESTS THAT HAS SHUT DOWN THE AIRPORT. THEY’RE TRYING TO CLEAR THE FOLKS OUT AND TRYING TO GET THIS AIRPORT BACK WORKING AGAIN AT LEAST READY FOR THE NEXT DAY, BILL.>>Sandra: BUT NO SIGN YET, THIS IS SANDRA HERE, NO SIGN YET OF ANY ACTIVITY AT THE AIRPORT. WE KNOW SOME OF THE PROTESTERS WERE COLLECTING BAGGAGE CARTS AND STRINGING THEM TOGETHER THE PROTESTERS WERE, TO BLOCK THE POLICE FROM COMING IN. WE’RE STILL GETTING WORD THERE ARE BUSSES OF POLICE IN RIOT GEAR GETTING DROPPED OFF AT THIS AIRPORT AS THE FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS CONTINUE. THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT IN BEIJING HAS CHARACTERIZED THIS MOVEMENT AS SOMETHING APPROACHING TERRORISM. WE KNOW IT POSES WHAT THEY CALL AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THE LOCAL CITIZENS THERE. GREG, IS THERE ANY IDEA OF POLICE ABILITY TO GET THINGS BACK ON TRACK HERE? YOU THINK ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF BUSINESS AND TOURISM FLOW THROUGH THIS HUGE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WHAT’S THE LATEST YOU’RE HEARING ON OPERATIONS BEING ABLE TO GET BACK ONLINE?>>WELL, SANDRA, THAT IS THE BIG QUESTION. CHINA CAN DO IT. THERE’S NO QUESTION CHINA CANNOT GET THIS AIRPORT BACK OPERATING AGAIN BUT IT IS WORRIED ABOUT THE BLOWBACK AND THE PUBLIC RELATIONS IT WOULD TAKE IF, AND THIS HAS BEEN RAISED IN THE LAST COUPLE PLAYS, IF THERE WAS A REPLAY OF WHAT WE SAW IN TIANANMEN SQUARE IN 1989 A REAL CRACKDOWN BY THE CHINESE MILITARY BY PROTESTERS IN MAINLAND CHINA. CHINA DOES NOT WANT TO DO THAT RIGHT NOW. HONG KONG IS TOO IMPORTANT FOR THEIR ECONOMY, CHINA’S ECONOMY IS BOOMING RIGHT NOW. HONG KONG STILL PLAYS A CRITICAL ROLE TO FUNNEL MONEY IN TO THE COMPANIES AND GOVERNMENT TO KEEP THEIR ECONOMY BOOMING AND IT COMES AT A TIME OF REAL TRADE ECONOMIC TENSIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES. TO THAT POINT AND IN THE PAST 24 HOURS WE’VE MONITORED WHAT WASHINGTON IS SAYING AND THEY’VE CONCERNED ABOUT THE THINGS WE’VE BEEN SEEING TODAY AND VIOLENCE BREAKING OUT AND A CALL FOR ALL SIDES TO RESTRAIN THEMSELVES. THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN THE PAST 24 HOURS SAID IN FACT THEY DEFEND THE RIGHT OF THE PROTESTERS AND THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHT AND PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY RIGHT. RIGHT NOW WE’RE NOT SEEING A LOT OF PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY AT THIS POINT OF TIME AND JOHN BOLTON, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER IS ECHOING WHAT THE HOUSE IS SAYING THAT THE U.S. IN NO WAY IS BACKING ANY OF THIS PROTEST AND IN FACT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID IT’S A MATTER BETWEEN BEIJING AND THE HONG KONG PEOPLE AND AUTHORITIES BUT THEY CERTAINLY DON’T WANT THIS THING TO GET OUT OF HAND AS WELL. WASHINGTON WATCHING VERY CAREFULLY. THERE’S A LOT AT STAKE ON ALL SIDES, SANDRA.>>Bill: AS WE WATCH THESE RIOT POLICE THEY’RE GEARED UP IT’S CLEAR FROM ME IMAGE. YOU SAID YOU SAW THOUSANDS MAYBE AT ONE POINT TENS OF THOUSAND. DO YOU KNOW THE NUMBERS AT THE AIRPORT, THAT’S THE FIRST QUESTION, AND EVEN IF YOU MOVE OUT THE PROTESTERS FROM THE AIRPORT THEY’LL GO ELSEWHERE. IF YOU GET THEM OUT OF THE AIRPORT, IT’S NOT OVER, IS IT?>>ABSOLUTELY NOT. WHAT THEY’VE DONE, BILL, AND WE SAW THE BEGINNINGS OF IT, IT’S A HIT-AND-RUN GUERRILLA TACTIC. WE SAW THE MILLION MEN MARCHES, VERY PEACEFUL AND NOW THERE’S A MORE VIOLENT APPROACH. THEY MODEL THEMSELVES, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, AFTER THE KUNG FU ACTOR FROM THE ’70s, LEE, WHO SAID HE MOVED LIKE WATER. THEY MOVE LIKE WATER MOVING AROUND THE POLICE AND WHEN THEY’RE BEING HIT AT ONE LOCATION, AT A SUBWAY OR CENTRAL BUSINESS AREA, THEY MOVE TO ANOTHER PLACE. OVER THE WEEKEND, WE SAW CLASHES BETWEEN THE POLICE AND THE PROTESTERS AT ABOUT 10 DIFFERENT AREAS OF HONG KONG AND AT THAT TIME IN FACT POLICE WERE USING TEAR GAS AND PEPPER SPRAYS AND RUBBER BULLETS AND ACCORDING TO THE PROTESTERS THEY WERE USING ABUSIVE TACTICS AS WELL. THE PROTEST USING MOLOTAUV COCKTAILS TOO AND THIS IS AN IMPORTANT HONG KONG AIRPORT, BILL.

  • Aint Communism grand. If the Chinese army is gathering outside the city, me thinks they will eventually move into the city to clamp down.

  • What a lame police force/govt… Can't even control a bunch of mindless fools…..where in the world did something like this ever happened…..what a shame!!!!!#

  • PJBoards Lookementheye says:

    Why are most of the FOX videos have comments disabled? Can't comment on the Scarmuchi (aka) Avenatti comparisons..

  • The Original Boyz in the Hood says:

    I think a bunch of chinese people voting is probably a worse prospect than a few chinese people running the country

  • PJBoards Lookementheye says:

    Chinese Army is mobilizing for one thing and one thing only…to control. "Only the necessary force was used to overcome the resistance"…straight thumping…it's coming.

  • Rezaei Farshad says:

    Four months ago, I was admitted to a mental hospital in south Los Angeles for almost three weeks. We were in control of the TV networks. There was a strange interest among some patients on Fox News and NBC, didn't it end here? Less than an hour later (news, especially after-news commentary) The offensive against us foreigners who came to America later than those foreigners
    We were starting out. We didn't dare to get out of the room. Sometimes due to the deterioration of our food situation, foreigners, our only sin, were to come out to the dining hall outside later.
      Of course (most) nurses did their best to keep the television set on sports and non-news networks, but because of the availability of television, patients were able to switch networks.

  • The future of America is being played out in Hong Kong. Elect a liberal you get chaos like this because people want freedom. Liberalism is a disease it usurps people's hope and dignity. LA mexifornia is liberal controlled by the liberals leftcoast. Shut down the Democratic party in the USA

  • Stefan Adamcik says:

    Hong Kong Protestors vs. Antifa, a contrast. Both use violence BUT… HKPs clashing with police, protesting a totalitarian foreign regime. Antifa, targeting political civilian opponents and protesting a democratic free government in favor of a socialist PC totalitarian regime. Hahahaha.

  • PlayerCharacter says:

    In China, those who know what it's like to live under communist rule are rioting to get out of communist rule. Meanwhile, across the ocean in America, millennials who know nothing about the cost of freedom are protesting in favor of communism.

  • adviser to the Gods says:

    Xi has failed and crapped on the Chinese people. Trade talks (failure), Hong Kong (failure), economy (failure), Taiwan (failure). the Chinese people deserve better. The PLA needs to step forward and assassinate Xi.

  • GREAT RESPECT FOR THESE PEOPLE FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM AGAINST A SICK, SADISTIC, IMMORAL, GOV'T ALA DEMOCRAT PARTY. IF ONLY AMERICANS WERE AS SMART, BRAVE, REALISTIC.

  • I wish well for the ppl of HK but to be perfectly honest this is not exactly protesting. When you are disturbing the economy by taking over airports and highways and stuff this is kind of borderline economic terrorism.

  • People don't know what freedom is till it's taken away while people say trump is a dictator. If he really was one those people would not be alive today.

  • Well at least we know china is growing up as a country, America had to go through many stages to get to where it is today, of course now the issues plaguing the country today are basic human behavioral problems but that can be fixed in time. I look forward to America having a better relationship with a reborn china.

  • The First Pharoah TV outreach program says:

    If they find out America is behind this it could be a act of war .it would not be a Surprise

  • So we just hosted a man from Macau, China who left yesterday from Chicago and arrived at the Hong Kong airport about 5-6 hours ago. He sent us pictures and texts saying that what he saw was peaceful. What he sent and what the news describes here are VERY different accounts!!

  • So whats the demographic for these protesters. Im all for anti communism, but if this turns out to be just another protest put together by young anarchists.. 👎🏼 …all this over a law making it ok to extradite to mainland china seems a bit much.

  • Those are Chinese funded protesters trying to engineer Mayhem so that China has a reason to invade and Annex Hong Kong. This will instigate global economic crisis that will in turn prevent Trump from winning re-election and allowing China to win the trade war with a democrat in office.

  • I hope all those white suburban womynz who find Trump “mean” realize what the alternative to Tweeting is. Do not let the Commies in America take your guns away

  • So exactly what do people suggest we do about it? I sympathize with the people of Hong Kong, but Briton leased Hong Kong from China in 1842, during the opium war. According to the lease agreement, they were to return it to China July 1, 1997, which is what Briton did. Hong Kong belongs to China.

  • Those rioters must be stopped and put in jails. Learn from India, get massive riot police forces firmly to take on those rioters. Just a reminder to cut off Internet access and shut off electricity before taking forceful action❗️Go, the riot police forces‼️

  • 🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓Take a good look at Hong Kong, this is the United States in the very near future if we don't get it together soon. The powers that be are trying to make democracies out of vogue.😦😦😦😦😦😤😤😤😤😤

  • Chinese are smart and competitive and Honk Kong is reflecting why adopting our form of government is ideal for a more rewarding life style for the entire county.

  • aaron ridderbush says:

    This is America's future if aoc gets its way….i hope Hong Kong stays the way it was…..Pray for the ones who do NOT want the communist party to take over….

  • When pieceful approach doesn’t work against Govt encroachment their is only 1 recourse.
    The ppl of these countries, including the US, are not as castrated as they would leave you to believe.

  • Would you want to go from freedom to enslavement that's what this equals we helped enslave all of China by buying their goods so when turn you are the enslaver

  • This is going to happen in the United States if Democrats continue to spew their hateful racist rhetoric and incite violence.

  • \ Those who escaped Communism during Mao's massacre of traditional China want Liberty.
    \ Blaming a desire for Liberty on the US is equivalent to blaming the US for Marxism in China.
    \ China, fix your moral weakness, shady life goals and others might want to join you.
    \ Teach Marxism, theft and One Party stupidity and Classic Chinese will not follow.

  • harles5000 Chembetrayals says:

    I support the Hong Kong people 100%, I wish the mainland Chinese would do the same! Hong Kong should be allowed to secede from China and form their own Democracy!

  • The U.S. media never reported why the police arrived at the airport last night because protesters kidnapped two Chinese citizens.

  • The U.S. media never reported why the police arrived at the airport last night because protesters kidnapped two Chinese citizens.

  • @9:34 ok. i'm about to downvote cause this dude didn't know who Bruce Lee was "…that actor from the 70's .. Lee… uh… move like water…"

  • They have no 2nd amendment to stage a true resistance to the communists. Libs should take note and see why the our 2nd amendment is so vital to OUR FREEDOM

  • The confrontation with the CCP should be that the country is ahead and not the interests are ahead. I am a Chinese. I sincerely hope that you will unite and focus on the long-term and create a pure and rational future for the people of the world.

  • President Trump needs to say something…support them! We are in a war against China. Maybe a Cold War/Cultural/Trade War right now, but we have to preserve Hong Kong as a freedom foothold in Asia.

  • These idiots are digging their own political grave. Peaceful but firm protests that don't infringe on the lives of other city dwellers is sensible. This is not.

  • Hong Kong is a perfect example of why you cannot allow a government to take your guns. Protest in Hong Kong do nothing, but show. If they had guns there would be action.

  • Joshua Degreiff says:

    “Another day in CIA headquarters”

    Not much we destabilizing another country, what is the next target……….rUssIa!!!!

    -We know HK and China are not the best besties but what a “coincidence” trade war and now this how convenient isn’t?

  • To correct: I live in America for two decades. With the violate incidence happened that shoot the girls eye, CEO of Hong Kong didn’t say anything with caring. Beijing even described that she was shot by “pig “protestors on Beijing press. A foreign news reporter declared it was shoot by police because he was nearby. The girl was wearing musk and the cloth bag bullet stacked with mask.

  • CCP said it’s not verified that the girl was hit by eye by police and would be charged by fraud. Protesters have provided evidence. Have you seen the characters of CCP ? Is there human heart in CCP ? Do you want to invest money there ?

  • The recent protesting at Hong Kong airport was due an incident which police shoot cloth bag bullet with short distance to a girl’s face
    and make her lost one eye. And it’s safe at airport. This interview did not reveal this at all. I don’t know why Fox News delete my previous
    comments.

  • The government say that HK citizens would only be extradited for very serious crimes, not on merely political charges. This is transparent deception. What is to prevent the corrupt national government from bringing serious charges against someone who is 'guilty' only of disagreeing with the government?

  • Realistically speaking:
    Hong Kong = city state size
    China = pretty much a continent
    low supply vs unlimited supply
    China boom happened before they acquired Hong Kong. The booming will still be there with out or without hongkong. And now the hong kong protester go all our full antifa style. Good luck getting sympathy from some people in the world.

    All China have to do just ride this out slowly really.
