PHOTOS: Anti-Occupiers instigate scuffles in Causeway Bay on Oct. 3

Yesterday evening in Causeway Bay, people who were against the Occupy Hong Kong movement started instigating altercations with the student protesters. One of the anti-Occupy men was taken away the police. Seemingly weary of the press, the anti-Occupiers also harassed two Al-Jazeera journalists.

Later, a masked gang of men arrived and began tearing down barricades. The police controlled the situation by isolating the masked men from protesters and bystanders but did not arrest any of the masked men.

Many of the anti-Occupiers refused to be photographed or filmed.

Scuffles broke out when the anti-Occupiers started pushing against the barriers and the protesters held their ground.

“He’s harassing me!” she said to the police officer.

Another anti-Occupier started blaring a high-pitched, painfully loud sound from his bullhorn, to the dismay of this kid and everyone else.

The police eventually arrived. The protesters pointed at the anti-Occupiers, saying they were being violent.
