Hong Kong 'silver-haired' sit-in, masked protesters rally against emergency laws

The emergency laws were introduced a week ago, sparking some of the worst violence since the protests started.

Hong Kong's protests started in opposition to a now-abandoned extradition bill but have mushroomed in four months into a pro-democracy movement and an outlet for anger at social inequality in the Asian financial hub.

On Saturday (October 12), protesters marching in Hong Kong's shopping district in Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok wore face masks in defiance of the new laws.

Some wore Guy Fawkes masks - a well-known symbol of anti-establishment, anti-government sentiment, also known as an 'anonymous' mask.

Outside police headquarters, a group calling itself the "silver-haired marchers" started a 48-hour sit-in to protest against what it says is an unjust government, escalating police violence and indiscriminate arrests.
