Another morning of travel chaos caused by protesters forced passengers to disembark a train and walk along the tracks to the station.
In Sha Tin, a train was unable to reach its destination after objects were found on the track. Passengers had to walk about 100 metres, escorted by MTR staff and firefighters who provided an oxygen mask for an elderly man.
A passenger says he was waiting on the train for about half an hour before he was escorted out.
After Hong Kong witnessed one of the most violent days of unrest since anti-government protests began six months ago, protesters vowed to stage yet another citywide traffic disruption on Tuesday morning.

El #EvangelioDeHoy (Lc 20,27-38) nos introduce en uno de los temas que podemos entender sólo por Fe. Este día es especial para recordar (volver a revivir, pasar por el corazón) a esas personas que han partido y extrañamos con nuestra alma y de alguna manera mostrarles que seguimos amándolas. ¿A quién recuerdas con el alma❤️? __

Posted @withrepost • @xrebellionaus Science tells us that climate change means longer and more intense fire seasons. The disastrous fires burning in NSW and Queensland are unprecedented. Our government and media act as though there is little connection between increasing bushfires and anthropogenic climate change, as though there is no climate and ecological emergency, despite the repeated warnings of science.
In a speech earlier this year, obtained under Freedom of Information laws, the Chief of the Australian Defence force noted that Australia is in "the most natural disaster-prone region in the world" and that "climate change is predicted to make disasters more extreme and more common".
When asked about climate change today, the prime minister said: “One of the stories I heard today and the commissioner has referred to it because it is not uncommon, you have firefighters out there saving someone else’s house while their own house is burning down,” he said. “And when we are in that sort of a situation, that is where attention must be.”
Yes, we are in that sort of situation. Our house is burning. The resources of firefighters and emergency workers are already stretched, and it is not even summer. The right thing for the government to do would be to give its attention to science: to accept the truth of the climate emergency, understand the connection with increased fires, and act now to lessen suffering and avoid extinction.
We need to make drastic effort to urgently reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and aim to keep global temperatures below 1.5°C of warming. Our lives and our futures are threatened.
Scott Morrison, this is a planetary emergency - what’s your plan?
Extinction Rebelllion has three demands. There is still time to act.
Out thoughts are with those fighting and affected by the fires, in love, rage, and strength.
