Government urges protesters to disperse peacefully

     A Government spokesman said today (September 29) that some major thoroughfares have been blocked by protesters, causing serious disruption to traffic. Classes in Wan Chai District as well as Central and Western District have been suspended.

     The spokesman urged those blocking the roads to vacate some of the carriageways to allow the passage of emergency vehicles and the partial resumption of public transport services.

     As those people gathering on these roads have generally calmed down, the Police have stood down the anti-riot deployment. The spokesman urged the people there to stay calm and disperse peacefully as soon as possible.
