A journalist verbally sparred with Hong Kong police officers for allegedly firing tear gas in the direction of press covering extradition bill protests in Admiralty on June 12.

This footage shows the man – identified as Taiwan-based reporter “Josep” by the uploader – yelling at the officers for firing tear gas rounds at press and photographers.

“You’re shooting the press; you shoot the journalists!” the man can be heard yelling. When the police order him to disperse, he responses: “It’s still Hong Kong, not China. Not yet, not yet…”

According to a report from South China Morning Post, as of 10 pm on Wednesday, 72 people aged 15 to 66 had been injured in the violence resulting from clashes between demonstrators and the police.
