6,000 Riot Police Deployed as National Day Protest March Banned Again

The National Day March 'Don't forget the Martyrs, Save 12 HK Youths' originally planned by Civil Human
Rights Front (CHRF) was banned by the police, and the appeal was unsuccessful. Police suggested to
the CHRF to implement a 'real-name registration' system for marchers for considering a no-objection
notice. CHRF convener Jimmy Sham criticized that the police aimed to obtain citizens' personal
information. 'They really want to know who are brave enough to participate in the march,' and then
go after them, the purpose is chilling. sham said bluntly that the police have now half implemented
the "real-name system." Whenever there is a public event, the police stopped and searched for the citizen's
identity. He believes that it would be impossible for democrats to hold a legal march in the near future.

Starting at 12:30 pm, a large number of people gathered near the Sogo Department Store near East
Point Road in Causeway Bay. There were more than 1,000 people at the peak. Over 1,000 police
officers and dozens of police vans were deployed nearby, stopped and searched citizens frequently.
According to reports, 6,000 police officers were deployed to prevent illegal actions.

At 1:45 pm at East Point Road in Causeway Bay, someone held up the front page of the Apple Daily,
showing 'Safeguard the children and uphold our conscience.' She was surrounded by a large
number of riot police who stopped and checked her identity.

Someone held up a yellow umbrella that read 'Support Freedom and Oppose Evil Law'; someone carried
a large yellow balloon in the air; many made a gesture of '5 Demands, Not One Less'; someone held up
a placard that read 'Chief Executive's words and deeds are hateful'; many chanted 'Free Hong Kong,
Revolution of the Times' and shouted at the police. The police raised the blue warning flag at least a
dozen times to warn citizens and ask them to desperse.

The online platform 'HK Online' also launched the 'October 1 Mid-Autumn Sale', urging shopaholics to
wear black or white and visit large shopping malls in 9 districts from 2 pm to 5 pm. The detailed location
was announced at 1 pm, including International Finance Centre (IFC) in Central, Quarry Bay's Cityplaza
on Hong Kong Island; Harbour City in Tsimshatsui, APM in Kwun Tong, MOKO in Mong Kok, Telford
Shopping Centre in Kowloon Bay, Kowlon; New Town Plaza in Shatin, Supercity inTai Po, and D-Park in
Tsuen Wan, New Territories.

There are many police officers patrolling IFC Mall in Central, but no public action visible.
