Class Resumes at Hong Kong University That Fought Back Against Riot Police

Students at a Hong Kong university where riot police fired hundreds of rounds of tear gas and were met with petrol bombs hurled acrossmakeshift barricades in November, returned to class on Monday afterpolice made dozens more arrests during a protest at the weekend. Students returned to the Shatin campus of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) for the first time after the authorities ended the last semester early following the campus battle, which saw police fire some 1,000 rounds of tear gas in an assault on the main campus.

While the majority of damage to campus facilities had been repaired, including widespread protest graffiti, a Goddess of Democracy statue remained near the college entrance, bearing a banner with the words "Five demands, not one less."
