Train travels in the semi-autonomous city of Hong Kong have been thrown into chaos after pro-democracy protesters blocked train doorways on Monday, kicking off another day of potential violent demonstrations.
Reports say many citizens are heeding the call for a general strike on Monday, while university students are due to rally in the afternoon.
Also, as many as 10,000 secondary students are reportedly planning to boycott classes as secondary students formed a human chain outside their schools, early on Monday morning.
The development comes a day after authorities in Hong Kong suspended trains and airport trips as protesters continue to pile up pressure after a night of heavy clashes with police.
Reports say thousands of protesters surrounded entrances to the airport on Sunday afternoon,seeking to disrupt transport routes serving the city’s international airport, as the territory’s months-long political turmoil deepened.
