Hong Kong Trade Union Building vandalised during protests
As protests continue in Hong Kong over the Extradition Bill some activists have allegedly vandalised The Hong Kong Federation of Trade Unions Workers' Club building on August 17. Footage shows the front of the building plastered in black spray-paint with some Chinese characters sprayed next to English profanity. The filmer alleges the vandalism occurred when masked black-shirt protesters took part in a march between the Hung Hom, Kwa Wan and Mong Kok areas of Hong Kong.
