Hong Kong ‘flash mob’ protest in mall targets pro-Beijing Carrie Lam's incendiary comments

Lunchtime protests continue in Hong Kong's Central District, following Chief Executive Carrie Lam's incendiary comments.

The Chief Executive position is not an elected one; Lam was appointed by the Chinese government in 2017.

This weekend, local district council elections drew a massive voter turnout and a pro-democracy, anti-Chinese government sweep took place at the polls.

With the outcome of that election being interpreted as a referendum on Carrie Lam's pro-China policies, protesters have becomen more emboldened, saying that there will be consequences for Lam should she not heed their Five Demands.
