Hong Kong (CNN)Hong Kong police fired blue dye from a water cannon, rounds of tear gas and a live warning shot as protesters lit fires and threw petrol bombs and bricks on Sunday in clashes ahead of the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China.

Despite organizers not requesting permission from authorities, thousands of protesters marched in the 17th consecutive weekend of unrest. Hong Kong's Hospital Authority said 48 people were admitted for treatment, including one person in critical condition.

More than 150 people were arrested over the weekend, police said in a news conference Monday. On Friday, police announced that a total of 1,578 people had been arrested over the course of the protests.

4. Wow so few readers and replies for this important news!

Who criticized me for admitted mistakes on a previous OP; but failed to comment on this internationally important news?

8. Perhaps BECAUSE you purposely change a CNN headline on the other thread you reference.

Perhaps that’s why your thread is being ignored.

Or maybe we’re all busy with “real work.”

5. Thanks for the recommendation; but still very few replies...

on a news article about a fight for freedom, which will end in MANY deaths. At least this hasn't become a Tiananmen Square incident, yet.

6. I was watching a report yesterday in which they were outlining the escalation from authorities. I'm

not very optimistic about the outcome. But these are some really courageous people.
