From the Security Committee: HKG Protests - 8/13/19


August 13, 2019
The U.S. State Department recently upgraded Hong Kong to a Level 2 Travel Advisory, “Exercise Increased Caution.” This was primarily due to protest locations not being pre-registered with authorities and the airport protests. With unknown protests popping up, it is critical to remain vigilant, avoid large gatherings, follow local media coverage and follow directives from local police. Avoid wearing black or associating with protesters. If possible, avoid the MTR as many stations have had protests. Be careful with social media posts as the Chinese Government is closely monitoring social media and internet traffic. A bulletin from OSAC has useful links to protests maps and State Department messages. Currently known protests:
Friday, 16 August, Charter Garden in Central, 1200-1400 UTC
Saturday, 17 August, Charter Garden, 0300 UTC
Saturday, 17 August, Hung Hom Pier to Sung Wong Toi Park, 0730 UTC
Sunday, 18 August, Kwai Tsing Theatre to Tsuen Wan Park, 0600 UTC
