Baton Intimidation and Humuliation on Elderlies: “Cockroaches!”

While carrying out site clearing operation, some officers humiliated and pointed their batons at members of “Guardians of Children”, a frontline group of elderlies that attempts to stop violence on young protestors through approaches like blocking police with their bodies, or pleading to the police. They were disrespectfully called “cockroaches” by the officers as well during this incident.

In response, some journalists told the police to respect elderlies and stop their bullying, but the officers ignored advice, saying, “we will do whatever we want, … I don’t care if they’re elderlies”.
