<div property="schema:text" class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>A Hong Kong police officer was knocked down by a flying drop kick as he attempted to arrest a protester during the 19th week of anti-government unrest. </p>

<p>The officer can be seen struggling over custody of a protester until the kick levels him, followed by others running up and hitting the man before they run off. </p>

<p>The protests - this week's revolving around a new <strong>'anti-mask' law</strong> - saw turnouts in more than half of the semiautonomous Chinese territory's 18 districts. </p>

<p>The demonstrations in Hong Kong on Sunday were varied, <strong>including smaller gathering across the city, and also cases of vandalism and arson that targeted government offices, subway stations, and several banks and shops.</strong></p>

<p>Some protesters blocked roads, broke streetlights, vandalized a train station and spray-painted antigovernment graffiti inside shopping malls. -<a href="">NYT</a></p>

<p>On Sunday, a Hong Kong police officer was <strong>"</strong><strong>slashed in the neck" </strong>by a black-clad protester at approximately 5:30 p.m., putting the officer in the hospital according to the <a href=""><em>Hong Kong Free Press</em></a>. </p>

<p>Video footage from <a href="" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Ming Pao</a> showed a team of officers about to enter Kwun Tong MTR station, as a man came up from behind and jabbed a sharp object – similar to a box cutter – towards the neck of one of the officers. The officer in question then chased down the assailant, and two people were arrested on the scene.</p>

<p>"The sharp-edged object is a deadly weapon. Police will strive to investigate all violent acts," read and official statement. Eyewitnesses reported the right side of the officer's uniform was stained with blood. </p>

<p><strong>Ted <s>Wick</s> Cruz rides into town</strong></p>

<p>In response to the pro-democracy movement in Taiwan, US Senators led by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) have advanced draft legislation which would penalize officials in mainland China and Hong Kong who suppress freedoms throughout the city - and would require <strong>annual justification as to why the United States should allow Hong Kong special trade and business privileges</strong>, per the <em>Times</em>. </p>

<p>Cruz traveled to Hong Kong this weekend and met with key members within the protest movement. He was scheduled to meet with Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, who <strong>canceled their meeting after he refused her request to keep their conversation confidential</strong>. </p>

<p>According to the Hong Kong office of China's Foreign Ministry, Cruz had "lied through his teeth" and "made indiscreet remarks on Hong Kong affairs." </p>
