Hong Kong’s world-class subway turns to mess as protesters wreak havoc
The once world-renowned subway is turning into a complete mess as protesters wreak perfect storm on Hong Kong’s MTR to show their unrelenting effort in their anti-government campaign.
On Sunday, the MTR was again the target of demonstrators as they set a fire outside the station in the Wan Chai area. Several MTR stations were closed due to the violence going on in the different stations.
Aside from the city’s subway, Hong Kong’s airway, Cathay Pacific is also facing a financial crisis as it suffered from its biggest drop in passenger traffic in more than ten years.
MRT shares slid 2% on Monday while the benchmark Hang Seng Index also plunged 1.2%.
According to the subway operator, a large number of station facilities had been damaged and petrol bombs had been thrown into some stations.
The government has yet to find solutions to the unending protests and violence surrounding the subway and it will continue to be the protesters’ target until it acts to end protests.
