‘They seem so helpless’: Hongkongers flock to aid besieged protesters


Volunteers and supporters streaming towards Polytechnic University were fearful of what might befall the demonstrators

As hundreds of protesters were trapped inside a university on Monday night, besieged on all sides by riot police, thousands of Hongkongers rose up in protest, filling highways, public squares and bridges trying to get to them.

The streets of the city were turned into a war zone as protesters, alumni, volunteers and other supporters streamed toward Polytechnic University in Kowloon, where anti-government protesters have been under siege for more than 36 hours.
