Protesters trapped by police and threatened to break through the iron gates
Hong Kong Police holding banners in both Chinese and English, warned protesters that their participation in the protest could constitute a crime and risked criminal prosecution.
The police have banned the march, citing inconvenience to the public and potential disruption to traffic
Protesters attempted to leave the park via the Hing Fat Street exit at the opposite end but were forced to stay in an area bounded by iron gates near the tennis courts.
The protesters disbanded after a 90-minute sit-in and after considering other options, including breaking through the gates.
The standoff between the protesters and the police has ended peacefully finally.
