<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>

<blockquote>
<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="https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/world/asia/hong-kong-protests-face-masks.html">NYT</a></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>
