Chaos In Hong Kong's Legislature

Hong Kong Legislature

2 pro-independence lawmakers defy a barring order and barge into the chamber as democrats form a human chain around them in Hong Kong, China. The swearing in oaths of Yau Wai-ching and Baggio Leung were invalidated earlier in October over language and a banner that was deemed derogatory to China.
