Student leaders of the protests in Hong Kong opened the door to dialogue again with the local government, after tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters denounce attacks committed against them.
The main student union in Hong Kong, which suspended the negotiations because of inaction by police during clashes on Friday, said it would meet with the Government on condition that responds to the actions of the police that day.
“The government must show commitment in investigating the facts (…) and give an explanation to the public as soon as possible,” said the Student Federation of Hong Kong (HKFS).
The Hong Kong’s authorities strongly denied yesterday that the government had resorted to “triads” to harass the protesters. “These accusations are fabricated and very excessive,” said Security Secretary Hong Kong, Tung-Lai Kwok.
The protesters are demanding that Beijing lifted its restrictions on universal suffrage in the former British colony returned to China in 1997.
