HONG KONG – Dozens of protesters shimmied down plastic hosing from a bridge and fled using motorbikes during an escape from a university campus here on Monday.
Some of the protesters who escaped lowered themselves several meters from a bridge they had occupied on the campus to a flyover below. They then sped off on the back of motorcycles that were already waiting or arrived quickly.
